Our Story

Ornimental is a band with a mission, a mission to put the groove, originality, and excitement back into metal, where it belongs. The name itself, Ornimental, comes from the Latin prefix Orni (to celebrate or decorate) and the root word mental (of intelligence or insanity), and true to form, Ornimental delivers an intelligent, possessed sound that celebrates the origins and foundations of Hard Rock and Metal alike. 

Harkening back to heavy metal legends like Metallica, Van Halen and Pantera, famously lead by deceased guitar legend "Dimebag Darrell". Ornimental doesn’t rest on writing and produce crunchy, appetizing, complex guitar licks. Oh, they produce hair raising Hard Rock at its most fundamental level, rest assured, but the song writing and arrangement has a classical, even groove edge Blues, reminding the listener of a perfect marriage of Eddie Van Halen, Zeppelin, and Beethoven.  

As if that marriage weren’t appealing enough, a deeper blues undercurrent exists in the band’s original music, paying homage to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, the skilled David Gilmore, and many other legends, yet Ornimental’s music has a modern influence which is subtly inherited from bands like Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch and Trivium.

Ornimental was founded by lead guitarist "Danny Perry". Danny has been writing unique, intoxicating original music for over half a decade. Danny Perry’s admiration for Beethoven lead him to be the lead guitarist for the Miami Dade Film Gaming Orchestra which won 2 Emmy Awards.  By absorbing the classical structures of the masters together with his passionate influences such as Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Vivaldi, Paganini, Chopin, and Tchaikovsky. Danny’s powerful voice is only trumped by his dedication to performance and skilled guitar playing. Danny has been offered music scholarships by renowned music schools.  

As a graduate of the world renown "SAE Institute" in Audio Engineering, Danny's focus on detail to music brings you closer to the songs. He was born an engaging front man though, and has found a niche. Harmonizing with talented rhythm guitarist, and back vocals "Ariel Barrientos". Together they have successfully brought the band to life in the past few years. 

Since rounding out the band, Ornimental’s popularity has skyrocketed, as the band has performed in the more chic, popular venues even being called on to play at world famous "Revolution Live". Most recently performed on the same bill as Children of Bodom, Death Angel, TYR, Non Point, Havok, Lacuna Coil, Eye Empire, Sid Wilson from Slipknot, Overkill, Scott Soto and more. They’ve had interviews with Horn’s Up Rock, New Times Magazine, even been on Blabbermouth magazine. They had airplay on national radio and now a larger audience is demanding their music to be played. Ornimental’s goal is to take over the metal universe, playing in large venues, and opening for the big boys. We'll be seeing you in the stadiums soon!
