Daniel Owen started playing guitar at 13 years old after hearing brian may from Queen. A little later he heard of Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Yngwie Malmsteen was amazed by there playing and worked very hard to emulate there technique.
Being impressed by yngwie malmsteen and chris impellitteri's guitar playing speed started practicing a strict regime of speed techniques and started recording his progress. A few of these videos were uploaded to youtube and were well recieved and seem to be quite popular with 2 of the videos been seen well over a million times each and one of the videos was featured in Total Guitar Magazine in july edition of 2008 where they said it was a must see video and compared him to Herman Li of Dragonforce.
These days Daniel has started teaching guitar and working on his 1st instrumental album which is in progress. Always wanting to be in a band Daniel is influenced by bands such as Iron Maiden, Stratovarius, Symphony X, Nevermore, Journey, Def leppard and Yngwie Malmsteen and writes music in this style but has always struggled to find a stable line up, but recently has joined awesome UK metal band Hunted who have recently been signed to Massacre records.
