David Baxter

David is a self-taught drummer from Norfolk, VA. Currently playing with the extreme metal bands Škan out of Austin, TX, and Plutonian Shore out of San Antonio, TX. His style is heavily influenced by jazz and 'tribal/world' music. Giving him a unique flavor to add to his fast and pummeling style of drumming.

Playing drums for over 15 years, he has bashed the skins for many acts including Aphotic Lore, Cult of Discordia, Skrew, Plutonian Shore, and Škan. In 2012 he recorded for the Skrew album 'Universal Immolation' which received international attention and was followed with touring supporting the album. He can also be heard on the eps 'The Old King' and 'Rex Umbrae' of his current band Škan, who are working on future material as we speak. He has shared the stage with many major acts in the States and Europe, a few recent SXSW festivals, and the first two Housecore Horror Film Festivals, held in Texas.

Unorthodox, yet methodical and precise, his war-like drumming will be sure to leave its mark.
