He teamed up with his long time best friend and favorite guitarist Jake Thrush, they sold a lot of drugs to buy their equipment back that Jake had pawned for drugs a year earlier, and started the band. With the illegal start-up behind them they went through a series of drummers before finally re-uniting with Kevin Smallwood, once Kevin was on board Wiatt Preston was in and the band, with these 4 members years ago were the band Heretic Oath, were now a.k.a. White Devil.
Metal isn’t for all the old though, and the metal life was too much for the family men Kevin and Wiatt who then retired their Metal crowns in 2006. Matt Osgood had joined by this time and helped to re-unite Mack with former Shades of Grey band mates Ryan Smith, and Tim Wilcox.
Wilcox retired after a solid 3 year run, bringing in Shane Hepner from Monday With a Bullet and New World Sinner and Laurn Mee on backing and support vocals and have made the band what it is today. a.k.a. White Devil have grown into one of the best Metal Bands on the west coast, they have released 4 singles that are in constant rotation on The Edge 101.5 KFLY and have been featured in the now defunct Metal Edge magazine which helped to give them fans all over the globe.
Their live show can not be rivaled, with record breaking attendance at shows for an unsigned band. The Devils’ first Demo “Age of Atrocity” and their independent Live release “Live at the Roseland” have become underground staples in the scene. A new full length album “Against All Gods” arrived in early 2010.
