Cody Gilliland is a multi-faceted heavy metal drum talent, recently relocated from Austin, Tx to Las Vegas, Nevada. He is best known for his work with Immortal Guardian. His abilities to play complex rhythms and fills at blistering speeds while simultaneously singing melodies and screaming backing vocals has dropped jaws across the US and also internationally during recent tours of Brazil and Russia.
Cody picked up drumming at the age of 9 where his early roots were in heavy metal and classic/modern rock. He also dabbled in jazz and marching band while attending high school before moving from southern Texas up to Austin and then to Las Vegas, to pursue his career in music.
Some accolades of Cody and Immortal Guardian include performing at the ESPN X Games on their infamous Immortal Guardian Shred Sled, being featured in SPIN Magazine’s “50 Best Things We Saw At SXSW”, and performing with cast members of MTV’s Jackass during a commercial for a music festival.
Cody is currently preparing for Motley Nue’s debut show in West Hollywood, California and upcoming video release.
