Connor Gilkinson Biography
Metal is a crowded genre, populated with hundreds of talented musicians--similar to a dense thicket of foliage comprising a rainforest. It seems like just about every heavy band out there has a resident "shred" master capable of throwing down a mind-twisting riff or crushing groove. However, where many of metal's most noteworthy artists relegate themselves to existing in the lush greenery of the genre's inner canopy, one artist knows it's the tallest trees that get the most light--That artist is Connor Gilkinson, multitalented master of all things fretted and former lead guitarist in the viciously heavy Vancouver deathcore outfit Dawning of the Inferno. From punishing live performances to entrancing playthrough videos and everything in between, Gilkinson is your go-to for an immense variety of fresh, modern musical ingenuity.

Gilkinson's first experience with a guitar wasn't a positive one--first fingering the fretboard at age 10, he didn't stick with it long, ditching it immediately. Three years would pass before Gilkinson would revisit guitar playing--picking it up and promptly finding himself unable to put it down. His newfound love for guitar playing led him to follow lessons and education, learning from Dave Martone and Archspire's Dean Lamb. As his talent for the instrument grew, so did his desire to put it to good use--as such, he was ushered in as lead guitarist in Dawning of the Inferno, an immensely heavy and technically tinted deathcore act hailing from the brutal wilderness of British Colombia. Gilkinson's work ethic carried over to the band, leading them to release their critically acclaimed debut EP, "Purification", and landing the band with several sponsorships from heavy music organizations such as Pure Deathcore and Pig Squeals and Breakdowns.

Gilkinson's expertise with an eight-string has done more than score him several guest appearances on many massive heavy music offerings--it has fueled his love for music and driven him to pursue it as a career. Gilkinson has earned a music diploma from Vancouver Community College and currently working towards a Bachelor's of Applied Music Degree with a major in Jazz and Contemporary Guitar. With both superior experience in the heavy music scene and an involved education at his back, Gilkinson commands a masterful talent over a variety of services to musicians emphasizing in metal. Available for private lessons, recording, production and composition of playthrough videos, Gilkinson is a man who has found his true passion in punishing, aggressive music and is determined to help others find it as well.
