David Baxter

David is a self-taught drummer from Warrenton, VA. Currently playing with the extreme metal band Škan out of Austin, TX. His style is heavily influenced by jazz and 'tribal/world' music. Giving him a unique flavor to add to his fast and pummelling 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 'I' and 'II' of his current international touring act, Škan, who are working on future material as we speak. He has shared the stage with many major acts in North America and Europe, a few recent SXSW festivals, European 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.
