Pat Seymour is an American guitarist from West Haven, CT.
Starting his journey at age 13 in West Haven, CT, Pat made quite an impact on the local music scene early in his career. He rose into the ranks rapidly, and quickly gained a reputation as one of the best Heavy Metal guitarists in Connecticut, earning him the nickname “Shredmaster Pat” amongst fans and peers. As a result, he soon found himself playing to capacity crowds with his original band, Eyes of the Dead, even being recognized by Hatebreed's frontman, & CT native, Jamey Jasta. As a result, Pat was offered a spot for Jasta's solo project, JASTA, as a Live/Touring Guitarist, and has graced the stage with the likeness of legendary Rock & Metal artists, incuding The Misfits, Exodus, Overkill, and more. He has earned a number of accolades and awards, including two-time Album of the Year 2014 for the highly-acclaimed Eyes of the Dead release, The Sum of All Your Fears.
His guitar playing approach can be viewed as dynamic and expressive, with a precise blend of technical ability and expression. He utilizes various playing techniques, including colorful chordal arrangements, lightning-fast, yet soulful lead passages, and a number of whammy bar techniques and tricks. He is also quite versed in both flat pick and finger picking techniques, and plays in a wide variety of styles, including Blues, Rock, Metal, Classical, and Southern Rock. Many of his varied influences include Randy Rhoads, Marty Friedman, Billy F. Gibbons, Slash, Dimebag Darrell, Carlos Santana, Zakk Wylde, amongst many others!
