We are .030 Over! We hail from Frankford Ontario and we are musicians that do what we love and love what we do. The experience in this project is amazing. The sound you hear cannot be created without all of us sprinkling our spice onto the song.
Influences in this band are many. Everything from Technical Death Metal to folk believe it or not. We have been compared to NIN, Slash, Dope, A dash of Motorhead, and wee bit of everything in between. We try to achieve a heavy groove with a focus on melody. This gives us our sound.
This project began with Scott writing and recording his own songs which quickly became songs written by Chay & Scott....Voila .030 Over. The darkness comes from Chay, the melody comes from Scott. Ego's are put aside and the focus is on the music....This keeps us inline. And let's not forget our very good friend John "Demon Speed" Riddell from Non-Existent. John does the bulk of our Leads for us because the kat just plays like a possessed Yngwie. He always caps the cherry on our songs. Our other good friend Luc Parent can be heard wailing on songs like Damaged or Soldiers' Sunrise......These are some cool songs!
So who is .030 Over? Tony Forbes was the original vocalist and lyricist for the project and has since moved on to focus on his solo career. Tony is an accomplished vocalist and definitely helped the project become what it has become. We are grateful for his collaboration and wish him success with is solo career. Since then we have worked with several artists and we currently have a new track featuring BJ WIliiams. Now this kat has a voice as you will see, and we are currently working with a new vocalist and lyricist that has a ton of experience and hails from the Toronto area, more to come on that. Chay McMullen is the Rhythm Maestro. He comes from a Technical Death Metal background and having toured all over Europe and experiencing that true Road Dawg experience! Chay brings a load of experience to the project and has played on many major album releases including Infernal Majesty, Wetwork, And Fear Disorder. Chay`s true love lies in jazz and watching this madman play bass is an experience and an honor. And let's not forget Jamie Constant who is a man that I toured with many moons ago and is one of my all-time fave drummers. This man has toured all over the globe and played with the likes of SYRE, Helix, Blood Of VanGogh, and recorded with some of the greats. This guy can play! Then there is Scott Roffey.....The kat with the vision and persistence to take this from start to finish. Having a long background in the industry touring for many years as a sound engineer for many recording acts.....This honed him for what he always wanted to do, which was write music and create music at a high calibre! .030 Over gives him the platform to do this. The music created by .030 Over has caught attention in many countries and even label consideration. Listen, Krank it, And pound those fists in the air. We are very blessed to have these very good friends involved in this project!!! Cheers guys!
Music is an amazing thing that brings people together. Writing a song is touching other people with your soul and emotions. Music is a beautiful thing. We love working with new creative musicians with similar likes in styles of music and collaborating. A lot of my riffs come from jams that we have with our friends on a Friday night and life experience. Cheers and Keep them horns waving in the air!
