Event Horizon is a progressive death metal band founded in Los Angeles, CA by guitarist/songwriter Max Sindermann. Event Horizon fuzes metal, classical, and jazz in an attempt to tell new types of musical stories and help fuel the constantly growing progressive movement in the metal scene.
In 2013, Max teamed up with vocalist/writer Brandon “Voidspawn” Leigh to help work on the band’s debut EP, The Emancipation of Dissonance.
THE MASTERMIND: MAX SINDERMANN
maxbiopicMaximilian Lee Sindermann, lead guitarist and founding member of Event Horizon, is the musician and songwriter to whom the band plays brainchild. Trained in classical music, beginning with the occasional piano trifle from a very young age, Max went on to formally study Music at Santa Monica college, following up with Music and Music Industry courses at Cal-State University Northridge.
Being initially drawn to the death metal genre, Max first conceived the beginnings of Event Horizon in the form of the band’s predecessor: a death metal band called Norazzah, which gained popularity in the Los Angeles area after winning a fiercely competitive battle of the bands at the Knitting Factory (Hollywood) in 2008. Despite Norazzah’s success, Max found himself slowly drifting away from the limitations of strict death metal music and leaning to newer, more adventurous ideas.
Having used his years in school to perfect a unique fusion of classical fingerpicking with the progressive death metal styles he was formerly drawn to as a musician, by the time of his graduation Max had already constructed and composed a full Extended Play, The Emancipation of Dissonance, with an entirely new and original project all his own: Event Horizon.
