About Dane & the Death Machine
Genres:
Music
Band Members:
The only actual member of Dane and the Death Machine is Dane Gabriel Russ...but there is no possible way he would be able to do it alone, and is eternally grateful for the amazing friends and artists that he has had the chance to get to know and work with during this crazy career., They are, in no particular order..., Alec Patrick Townsend: Dane's little brother for life, roomate, muse, and heterosexual life partner. Without him, none of this would be possible, because Dane would be dead. Literally., Kellen Thain Dopp - Dane's big brother for life, inspiration, confidant, and fire under the ass. Also, and very literally, Dane would not be alive if it wasn't for this man., Brandon Woods - One of the few reasons that humanity is not totally hopeless. He is a wonderful man and a great friend. When he's not busy doing both of those things, he is the manager and audio engineer for Dane and the Death Machine, Calm yourself Alec, and Kill Yourself To This..., Jordan Beckstead - A great musician, and a wonderful friend. played Keyboards for a spell., Rachael Write - She rocked the bass for about a year and got to make Dane and the Death Machine a little better looking during some of their best shows., Spencer Reed - Did a set of remixes from songs featured on When Amonia Meets Bleech., Aye Lee Dee - She is a beautifully artistic soul who designed the cover for When Amonia Meets Bleech (Now available for purchase on I-tunes). She also wrote the monologue at the end of "inside me"., Tom Kamnikar - Tom Rocked the Bass for Dane and the Death Machine during the period that the "Am I A Pop Star Yet?" EP was recorded. His drive and Charisma make him one of the strongest players in Dane and the Death machine of all time., James Fear - Jim Fear established himself as an idol to Dane for the work he did with the band, I Am The Ocean, on their album, "...And your city needs swallowing". He was able to write some amazing guitar parts for a handful of shows with DDM. His departure from the project lead to prozac sales to sky rocket around the world., "Rockin" Ryan Jones - Aside from being extremely sexy (and oh, that hair) Ryan has kicked the ass of hundreds of fans across the Salt Lake Valley with his mind blowing guitar licks. He also has only played a handful of shows with DDM. He also has melted faces in bands like, I Am This Body, Dear Stranger, and Landlords...just to name a few, Andy B. - A rocket sauce drummer for Dane and the Death Machine...but when his love child band cried out to him...he just had to quit., Andrew Allred - Andrew briefly rocked out with the Death Machine, and performed an acoustic three piece show with Dane and Tom at Kilby Court., Wesley Deuren - One of the most consistent members...The time that Wesley spent with DDM is highly regarded by any long term fan to be the best era of the project. The musical chemistry was purely amazing both in the recordings and (especially) the live shows., Brett Nelson- The first real musician that has ever made a connection with Dane. The two of them founded the band Half-Step with drummer, Alec Townsend. He has performed with the Death Machine on multiple occasions, and hopefully will find the time to perform with it again one day., Kamyar Ghassemy - A brilliant hip hop artist who lent his talents of the bass to this project on many an occasion. He is also like a brother to Dane, and will hopefully have many more opportunities to play with the Death Machine in the future., The West - An amazing musician and one of Danes close friends. He has contributed endlessly to the Machine in the year 2005 in both performing and recording on albums. He was also cool enough to let Dane throw down some bass tracks on his first album, "HOLD COLD HANDS", Amytronikkk - This girl is crazy cool. She wrote all of the lyrics and performed vocals for "Ibrokeupwithmydrugstoday". And literally, you fuck with her, you fuck with everyone on this list, and may God have mercy on your soul., Danny Gast - the original drummer for I am Alpha (an experimental instrumental anti-robot explosion) and the first ever drummer for DDM...he broke up with us after we got too soft and started to focus more on Dane and the Death Machine., Evan - don't know his last name...but he came in and replaced Danny for a while. Then Dane decided he hated bands and broke the whole thing up. He started at the wrong time., Chad Taylor - Hands down the most brilliant guitar player in America. I've been fortunate enough to watch him play for the last seven years of my life, and have him play with the machine from time to time. You can catch him now in the band, BONK!, Craig Secrist - The most intense visual artist of our life time. He has designed multiple images and lent them to this Machine. One day I hope the world will worship him as they should., Snap Point Productions - Andrew and troy are brilliant film makers and improv comedians (as Toysoup). They were awesome enough to shoot the music video for, "The Great Manipulator" for nothing more than the gratification someone gets from helping out some friends. These guys are too cool. You can check them out on youtube!, Irazu Hilario - The first official photographer of the Death Machine. Due to complications of life she can no longer work with us, but any long term fan has enjoyed countless photos of us from her., Higharchy Inkorporated - Jared and Cory are totally awesome guys, and as our sponsors for a little over a year, we partied the shit out of every bar we ever even looked at, and everyone left deaf and happy. Check out some of their videos on youtube., Oaktopus Entertainment - A bunch of totally awesome people who decided that the best soundtrack for their movie, "Elephant Graveyard" would be Dane and the Death Machine! I can't say I can argue with that. They asked my permission, and of course I said yes because that is just so rad I can't even handle it. By the way, it was super nice of them to ask my permission, THANKS GUYS!, Brandon Hays - Dane's step brother. He recorded the first ever Dane and the Death Machine recordings after Half-Step broke up. They were just stupid little songs recorded in a basement and a bedroom, but for some reason people thought they were good so Dane recorded Thanatron., Chris Hussey - Recorded THanatron for Dane out of the kindness of his heart. We basically hung out in his studio, smoked bowls, ate candy, and every once in a while recorded a song. It never got finished due to some strange falling out.
