Ol was born in Huddersfield, UK on March 28th, 1984. He started to play the guitar around 1996 when he was 12 and was playing live by 16. Ol spent several years as a teenager learning and transcribing most of Annihilator's back-catalogue for the guitar. Annihilator mastermind Jeff Waters would later add these transcriptions to the official Annihilator website. In 1999, Ol played lead guitar for a local cover band called Metal Militia. In 2003, the band became bored with playing covers and began to write their own material; this is when Evile was formed. Evile released 4 studio albums with Ol between 2006 and 2013 on Earache Records: Enter the Grave, Infected Nations, Five Serpent's Teeth and Skull. The band toured around the world in such places as the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, the United States, Canada and Taiwan. In May 2012, Ol was nominated for Metal Hammer's Golden God Award "Dimebag Darrell Shredder" alongside Devin Townsend and Dino Cazares (Fear Factory). In August 2013, Ol announced he would be leaving Evile. In September, Ol stated that he had begun writing material for a solo venture. The project would be called Old Rake, which originated from fans of Evile's play on the name "Ol Drake". « hide
