DJ Temple/ Without Mercy
- EMG Gear/
Back in 2004, it was raining like hell and a ginger kid who loved guitar was waiting outside of the Croatian Cultural Centre in Vancouver BC. It had been 2 hours already but he would be damned if he was going to give up his spot against the cage. Suddenly, a loud crash of the door swinging open and there he was; Dimebag Darrell. The man himself made his way threw the crowd of people and eventually met up with this babbling fan who told him his dream was to start a band and do what Dimebag himself had been doing for so many years. “DO IT! Keep Shredding mother f*#$er, and you’ll be up here one day”.
That’s what gave DJ Temple the confidence to start up Without Mercy and the rest just writes itself.
For over a decade, DJ Temple has been touring the planet with his band Without Mercy and has released 4 studio albums. Most recently is the 2016 release “Mouichido”. Continuously improving his craft by studying with every guitar player that inspires him, DJ has had the privilege of being mentored by, Chris Broderick, Gus Drax and Max Dible. When he’s not touring, DJ runs the Temple Music Academy and teaches guitar players of all ages and skill levels either in person or online!
Currently, DJ plays various Schecter guitars (6 and 7 string) and utilizes the EMG707 and 81/85 sets.
