Cor Rademeyer

Born in Western Transvaal, listening to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Gary Moore and Uriah Heep at a young age, I always dreamed of becoming a famous drummer.  And then I ended up buying a cheap Stratocaster copy guitar 18 years ago, while finishing my (last) last year of Engineering studies.

Early musical influences were old school Metallica,  Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Genesis, Marillion, Iron Maiden, Bob James, Lee Ritenour, Beethoven, Sibelius, Brahms… I have too many hobbies…

I have a passion for earth sciences… meteorology, seismology,  astronomy, and run a private weather station in Secunda.  Braai, at least twice a week.  I like to drink homebrewed beer.  Guitar collecting is an ongoing hobby…

I am married to a wonderful lady, who supports my musical endeavours.  I joined Alvain’s band in 2002 or 2003 (I think?).  In Alvain I met a great friend and singer.  Besides my day job in engineering/sales, I run a home studio, doing mixing and mastering on request. Later musical influences are all based around Korn, Rage Against The Machine, System Of A Down, Riverside, Porcupine Tree, Big Elf, Gary Moore, Pineapple Thief, and actually most of the newer progressive rock/metal stuff. So in a nutshell…  that’s me!
