David Shankle, former Manowar, currently Feanor, DSG and Grave Reign is the new Holy Tide guitarist, the band led by Joe Caputo with debut album “Aquila” released through My Kingdom Music.
Guitar virtuoso and master instructor, David is one of the most respected and talented composers and guitarists shredding up the metal scene today.He is well known for playing seven-string over-the-neck scales, arpeggios and string skipping, along with being a master of many other guitar techniques.
David was a member of Manowar from 1988 to 1994, playing on the epic album “The Triumph Of Steel” (Gold/ Platinum) and co-writing “Master Of The Wind”, “Burning”,”Ride the Dragon” and “The Demon’s Whip”. David departed in 1994 after countless sold-out tours around the world to attend Roosevelt Music University in Chicago to polish his jazz and classical guitar skills. David’s signature over the neck style guitar playing can be seen on many videos, including “Ashes To Ashes”(DSG) and the 2005 MANOWAR “Earthshaker Fest” DVD.
Now having refined and nearly perfected his craft, David brings decades of experience and hard work to the table with Holy Tide.
