Now he is working with his Band XII.
I AM SUPPORTING JOHN CARTER AND HIS BAND XII SINCE2009 ( First John Carter and XII Fanpages)
THE OFFICIAL XII PROFILE IS THE AUTHENTIC REPRESENTATION OF JOHN CARTER AND XII.
XII are :
John Carter - Lead Bass & Vox.
Alex Martin - Many Drums.
Shaun 'Ripper' Dunne- Lead & Rhythm Guitars.
XII was conceived September 2009 after John 'Capachino' Carter had previously quit Fields Of the Nephilim on Good Friday of the same year. After a prolific writing spree John was joined in 2010 by Shaun 'Ripper' D whose majestic and strident style has graced many a record. Together they set out to elaborate on ideas, introduce more 'colour' and write which they continue to do. A drummer of considerable talent was needed with a flexibility and approach seldom acheived in the goth scene. A metal, dextrous drummer with hard hitting ambitions with the ability to stop on a six-pence and tease a whisper from the heaviest cymbal and after a few collisions a man came forward. Alex Martin was to provide the necessary drive to further push XII towards the inevitable -Record a debut album.. XII haven't found a home in genre though they do cross boundaries undeterred - Goth, Metal & Atmospheric.
XII are of an English Rock heritage that lies in the days gone before.
XII's future lies in 'The Ever Unfolding'
