Gus Drax was born in Larissa Greece on 21 of September 1987. He decided to play guitar at the age of 14 when he saw "Live in Tokyo" by Dream Theater and was amazed by John Petrucci. He started practicing for 6-12 hours a day.
At the age of 19 his talent was noticed by John K, the vocalist/band leader of the UK Progressive Metal Band Biomechanical. John suggested him to join the band and in August 2007 Gus was the new guitarist of Biomechanical.
