Biography

Brad Roberts - Although his role as a drummer has kept JiZMak in the back, behind his massive kit of stretched skins and explosive percussion instruments, he drives the band and beats any who cannot keep up with the unrelenting tempo he sets. In music as well as war he brings a brutal, pounding finesse to his precise and undiscriminating smashing. What at first may appear to be a chaotic blur of pummeling rhythms and buffeting cadences is actually a surgical dissection of musical (and human) figures. JiZMak was drafted into the Master’s Scumdog Army at a very young age. He was ripped from mother's womb and handed a massive war hammer and has been beating things ever since. He showed such natural, ingrained proficiency when it came to bashing, that he quickly gain a reputation as a warrior to be feared and avoided, but his cacophonous personality makes that near impossible. JiZMak gets his dogged determination from his father who was half pit bull, half badger and half ice hockey goalie.
