Born and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey just outside of New York City, Pete has been popping up on the Metal scene since the mid 1990's in Philadelphia, on the Jersey Shore, and New York. Pete briefly played guitar in the band Northwinds (Black -N- Blue Records), and soon after founded the band, Strychnine (Apparition Records). While playing guitar, writing, and managing the Brutal Technical Death Metal act Strychnine, Pete was also busy involved with projects such as Beyond Deranged and Operation:Mindwipe (Sektor 6 Kommunications / Silent Records). Pete would occasionally hone his recording skills by assistant engineering at Studio 84 in Howell, NJ, and running live sound for his cover band Starrats (who payed tribute to Motorhead mainly), prior to opening the first Apocalypse Studios.
Currently residing in Tennessee near Nashville, Pete has gone back to
his Thrash roots and created PROPHETS OF THE APOCALYPSE. With an emphasis on speed and ferocity, Pete Serro is plotting to make his Metal presence known by fronting and playing all instruments on his
debut release, War Metal.
Prophets Of The Apocalypse signed with Sliptrick Records in July of 2019. Their full length album, Threshold Of War has the release date of December 17, 2019. Pete is endorsed by Randall Amplifiers, Washburn Guitars, and RockBoard by Framus/Warwick.
Pete Serro is AVAILABLE as a sideman/hired gun for an international
established Thrash / Black Metal, Old School Death Metal act, or other Extreme Metal band (guitar or bass). Call me!
