Hellz Guitarist, songwriter and producer 2020 Hellz guitarist is the wizard of abstract guitar.Between Lexx and the queen of Hellz herself the song writing forces of this band Hellz is phenomenal.
Lexx resides in Upstate, New York
Lexx Majik was born of a French King and a Succubus in January of 1780. Left in the woods at three days old, he was taken in by an exiled Mystic and was taught of what is verses what is believed; actuality over reality. Still in the single digits of a human existence, he began encompassing the life of sound, vibration - that music is all. Not just songs created or listened to, but that music is everything and the key to all dimensions. The sound of the wind blowing upon the leaves in the forest, a bird's wings in flight, water flowing in a stream - all music. As time continued forward, Musical Alchemy became his focus.
With a Classical introduction, Metal was a natural choice. Waiting for centuries to be reunited with others who were once cast out, when invited by the Queen to become a part of Hellz, he was delighted to join this tribe. The proverbial hell is, after all, a place where those who are enlightened gather. Shunned by the arrogant gods of human creation because they see truth beyond the many veils of deception.
Self taught, for the most part, Lexx took a few lessons as a child and became bored with the mundane quickly. He would seek out the books used by teachers and read through them, applying their content abstractly. He found that it's not so much the notes we play as it is how we get to the notes that is of importance. Motion to vibration - the journey to - and through - sound.
Here in the 21st century, Lexx has a preference towards Schecter guitars, stating that there's a certain craftsmanship that sets them apart from all others. Using DigiTech processors, amps matter not as long as they're loud and warm.
