Alex Rudinger
The Faceless - United States


Alex Rudinger, born in Frederick, Maryland 1991, has been leaving his mark on the modern music scene for the last several years. Known for his precision and accuracy behind the kit, Alex combines his unique style with geometrical design to generate a voice that is truly his own.

Alex was able to get his start touring and recording for several notable acts by utilizing the resources of the internet to his advantage. This forward thinking approach has led him to find his true home in UK's progressive metal juggernaut, The HAARP Machine.

Drawing from a diverse array of influences, Alex pushes the envelope of technical expression whilst maintaining musical direction and relevance.

In his own words;

"I began playing drums at the age of 13 and it took me very little time to realize my love for the instrument. Early on I got into rock and metal drumming and very little has changed to this day. Although much of my time is invested in performing inside these genres I am not limited to playing only these styles. I have invested some time into diversifying myself as a musician; I love practicing and I love challenging myself so I am constantly looking for more to do.

I take great pride in my work. Precision and creativity are very important to me and I strive to reflect this in my expression.

I've been playing Pearl Drums and hardware from the onset and it's an incredible feeling to be recognized and welcomed into the family. I truly feel at home and look forward to what the future holds."

The HAARP Machine's debut album 'Disclosure' is out now via Sumerian Records.
