After years of addiction living on the streets, rehab, and prison, only one thing gave a man hope to go on with life. That hope was music: an outlet to release the demons with song writing and playing live.
Sharing stories and the brotherhood he found with Ron Pacheco (bass guitar) and Sean Daudelin (drums) George Petrus (guitar and vocals) found a way to survive and a reason for hope and to live!, thus Three Points of Madness was born.
Formed in 2014 in Providence R.I.. The raw rock sound that the band creates hearkens back to the nascent days of classic rock, as well as to the metal heydays, while still appealing to modern listeners.
George's excessive use of vintage and modern guitar effects pedals lend heavily to the band's sound. Bringing dark stories to life with his vocals and playing.
Ron Pacheco's 4, 8, 9, 11 and 12 string bass guitars add to the mix, bringing back bass to modern music. Ron had studied with Professional Bassist, Songwriter, Musician and Musical Instructor/Director Willy "Mibbit" Threats for 6 years which helped form him into the well-rounded musician that he is today. Utilizing finger style and doubled handed tapping techniques as well as thinking outside of the box, Ron has an uncanny ability to create the perfect blend of both groove and melody with his bass lines.
Sean Daudelin's constant drive for perfect timing and love for odd bars and progressive metal drives the music a step further. At the ripe age of 18 Sean performed a live version of "The Dance of Eternity" by Dream Theater, a feat at any age.
With lyrics that come deep from within the soul from personal tragedy, and music that is heart-opening and passionate about loss, redemption, and the madness in our cities and towns, Three Points of Madness paints shades of darkness while bringing out the light of perseverance and hope.
