In the Fall of 2006, Angel Bartolotta (best known as the drummer for Dope, Genitorturers, PIG, Crossbreed, Switched) started a solo
studio project, which would go on to grow into a full force collaborative band featuring over 100 different musicians from all over the globe.
Led by Angel, the roster of artists is an ever-growing family of talent and inspiration. Members of Shinedown, Stone Sour, Nonpoint, Morbid Angel,
Kittie, Adema, Static-X, Coal Chamber, Stabbing Westward, Black Veil Brides, Pigface, Dark New Day, Godhead, PIG, Psyclon Nine, The Dreaming, Amen,
Eye Empire, Lords Of Acid, Soil, Our Last Enemy, KMFDM, and many others have all contributed to Team Cybergeist. Angel also brings in local musicians,
giving them the opportunity to write and record with some of their favorite musicians. Platinum selling artists and virtually unknown musicians, all
performing together as one.
For live shows and events, Angel Bartolotta has hand picked members of the studio lineup, as well as some new blood, to put together a strong team of
talented musicians to play and perform the music of Team Cybergeist. The live band consists of vocalist Sally Debauchery (who previously played bass
for the touring lineup), guitarists Jason Schmidt (who also co-produces in the studio) and Spyder Z Prime, and bassist Mark Carlson. Angel lays down
the backbone as the band's live drummer as well as running samples, synths, and loops. The touring lineup is a solid unit, the foundation of Team
Cybergeist. But to keep in the collaborative nature of the project, special guests are often added to the live lineup. Team Cybergeist delivers an
intense live show incorporating captivating stage presence, strong musicianship, and custom lighted instruments into a high energy performance.
Since 2009, Team Cybergeist has been headlining their own National tours as well as playing shows and radio festivals in support of major industry
acts. Alice In Chains, Godsmack, Evanescence, Limp Bizkit, Chevelle, Halestorm, Buckcherry, Sevendust, Puddle Of Mudd, Hellyeah, Smile Empty Soul,
Slick Idiot, Anew Revolution, Psychostick, Lords Of Acid, Hed PE, Wayne Static, and Mushroomhead to name a few.
Team Cybergeist’s first full-length album, “How To Destroy Something Beautiful”, was independently released on July 10, 2010 in the United
States, followed by 2 National headlining tours. An alternate version of “How To Destroy Something Beautiful” was released in Japan (RB Records) 8
months prior to the USA release and was displayed as #1 at the Tower Records listening stations.
On October 19, 2013, Team Cybergeist released “Zombie”, an EP featuring a new song, 3 remixes, and a cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like A
Hole”. There were only 100 physical copies of this independent release, which sold out in less than 12 hours after it’s announcement.
Angel and the team are now in the studio writing and recording what will be Team Cybergeist’s next full-length release, “The Other Side Of
"In a music scene constrained by ruthless competition and heightened egoism,” explains Angel, “it is exciting to lead a team of humble musicians
from a diversity of backgrounds who willingly compose for the love of music. This project is a collaborative effort, meant to unite the scene and
break down the hierarchical nature of the music industry."
Team Cybergeist is endorsed by DW Drums, PDP Drums, Zildjian Cymbals, ProMark Drumsticks, Evans Drumheads, Pintech Electronics, Westone In-Ear
Monitors, Steve Clayton Guitar Picks, DrumLite, and Wornstar Clothing. Team Cybergeist is also a Jagermeister band.
