Mastermind behind Temple of the Wasted Sun, a triple platinum selling band with three albums. John Saint John has a huge underground cult following, seen as the Industrial Metal artist with the most bizarre mix of on stage shocking antics and occult symbology. It's the most extreme of shock rock. If you don't know much about Metal, Industrial, or dark music, you've probably never heard of John Saint John.
Almost completely shunned by the mainstream media, the internet has allowed them to become successful enough to live on the music. John's two bandmates are mainly for live shows, he's a one man show in the studio, but despite them having no control over the music or profits he splits the money with them so they don't have to work day jobs.
The bizarre nightmare of his music is loved by fans though they take it as a gimmick. The truth is more terrifying. Nine years ago, at the age of 17, John disappeared for an entire year. He has no memory of where he was, no one has been able to figure out what happened. Yet he lives with a constant terror. Phobias and fears haunt him. He's turned the fear into his weapon through meditation, and transformed his suffering into music. The authenticity is obvious, his music makes the listeners feel like they are in a nightmare fueled dreamscape.
John has been spent the last 9 years obsessed with the occult. He got a BA in Music Theory with a minor in Religion, and has an entire room filled with books on obscure religions, magick, and conspiracies. As his third album is set to release he has discovered a small group of people who speak of something called the Shadowside.
John hopes it may have an answer to why a year of his life is missing.
