Mission Statement and Band Bio
In December, 2016 two strangers(Ethan and Robert) made the decision to meet up and play some music. The guys went from strangers to bandmates within a two hour time period after they quickly wrote their first song("something"). After that day Ethan decided to bring his roommate Samuel Eggenschwiler to play guitar for the group. Sam brought his blues, metal and classical guitar knowledge with him, further developing Sick Mystic's sound.
After two tours and 3 drummers the band was finally made complete once Zhenya Prokopenko fled Moscow, Russia and joined the group. The songs keep coming and with each new song, a closer bond is formed.
Please join our mailing list and stay up to date with Sick Mystic. They will be "coming soon" to a stadium near you.
Ethan Jeffrey Whitaker -
The singer of sick mystic is a man of many words. His vocal mentors are singers such as Chris Cornell and the late Layne Staley. Ethan brings emotion, power and a different perspective to his music. He has had the opportunity to live many lives and weather many storms. He digs words and feelings from a dark past and brings light from the sun shining down on him today.
Sam Eggenschwiler -
Sam's guitar style has no bounds. One moment he will be doing a Jimi Hendrix style blues solo then he will quickly slide into some Buzz Osbourne(the Melvin's) sludge. A true gift to work with and a true joy to listen too.
Robert Paul Ochoa -
Bass Guitar -
Robert is a drive producing, body moving, groove maker. Heavily influenced by bands such as Tool and Alice in Chains, influenced by musicians like Justin Chancellor, Mike Starr and Paul D'Amour. He pulls all of his weight and is the perfect drive to carry Ethan's vocal power.
Zhenya Pro (Evgeny Prokopenko) -
Drummer/ Percussionist -
Born and raised in Belgorod, Russia.
Joined the band late September, 2017
Amazing chops and a theatrical groove.
Influences: Metallica, NiN, Pantera, Entombed, Borgir, The Prodigy, Kasabian.
Everything's on its way... We will see you soon!!!!
