Terminal Degree is the brainchild of drummer/composer Mike Barnett. The music and instrumentation are a unique fusion of progressive rock, metal, classical and jazz elements.
Mike Barnett: My compositions have been performed around the world by prominent musicians and major ensembles. My eclectic output ranges from heavy metal to contemporary classical to fusion and beyond. My career as a performer has taken me from Carnegie Hall to the Sunset Strip and many points in between. As a metal drummer, I have recorded and performed with Phantom Crew, Dofka, Tainted Saint, Fated and Throttle and I now lead the band Terminal Degree. I am also currently a member of the music faculty at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
