Introducing 12 Days Straight!

Bio: Formed in July 2018, 12 Days Straight has been instrumental in

bringing back the metal scene to South Jersey. A versatile, open-minded

trio playing dynamic groove metal. Our debut EP is titled "The


Current members are:

Mike Green, vocals: Singing since 1994, Mike was brought into the band

by Sam who knew "a guy who could bring the perfect sound to the band".

Joe Paci, guitar: A native of south Jersey, Joe was born into a family

of musicians. At the age of 15, it didn't take him long to find his true

calling! This axe-wielding songwriter fell in love with the hardcore

scene and never looked back. Playing in several bands over the years has

lead him to his current birth child known as "12 Days Straight". Joe's

style of playing, combined with his pure passion for music, adds a

dynamic flavor to the songs.

Sam Ross, bass: Hitting the bass since 1990. One of the founding members

of the band along with Joe, Sam's original style that combines funk,

jazz, punk, and 90s metal. His unique ideas form the solid backbone of a

driving, melodic force of musical nature.

Erric Zdzchowski, drums: Jersey-born and bred, Erric (aka Rev), has been

playing since he got his  first snare drum at the age of 9 after the

violin didn’t quite work out. As a classic rock drummer for Precision

Shock, a pop-punk drummer for Vision Patch and Killing Silence, and a

blues drummer for Old Bay, he figured it was time to go back to his

roots and join South Jersey Thrash Metal band “12 Days Straight”. It was

obvious from day 1 that we all clicked and history was to be made.
