Bassist, singer, and founding member of Low Twelve scored an endorsement deal with Spector Bass Guitars. Pete Altieri is now playing the Alex Webster Signature Model, Euro Series 5XL. PJ Rubal, Artist Relations with Spector, was the one who worked the deal out with Pete for the 5-string bass he was looking for. Pete told him that he needed a brutal low end but with plenty of click to stand out. He also wanted to stick with EMG pickups, as he’s used for many years in Low Twelve. This Spector bass fit the bill and will be a deadly new weapon in Pete’s arsenal. PJ Rubal added:
“It’s great to work with Pete and help him achieve his ultimate bass tone with his new Spector bass.”
Pete started playing bass in 1984 with a cheap Fender copy through a 25-watt combo amp. In the nearly thirty years of metal bass playing, Pete has moved up and continuously upgraded his equipment. He commented, “Getting this Spector bass is like a dream come true. The incredible talent at Spector and the world class woods and hardware have made them among the best in the world. I’ve been happy with the bass I was playing before, but once I plugged the Spector into my bass rig – I was completely blown away at the improvement in my tone. Not to mention a bigger overall presence which will hold down the low in Low Twelve for many years to come!”
The Alex Webster Signature Model is named after the incredibly talented bassist for death metal monsters Cannibal Corpse. The model is only available as a 5-string bass in black gloss. They offer an alternative “drip pattern” in a wicked blood spatter on the body. Pete chose the black gloss without the drip pattern for his first Spector bass.
Low Twelve just celebrated their 15-year anniversary this past summer, and released their fifth CD “Skin in the Game” on Dark Star Records. Low Twelve has played more than 350 shows and toured the US, supporting national acts such as Cannibal Corpse, Gwar, Chimaira, Pro-Pain, Mastodon, Mobile Deathcamp, and more. Low Twelve has also been featured in several horror movie sound tracks to include “Jig Saw”, “Jezebeth II Hour of the Gun”, and most recently two songs on “Butcher Boys” from the creator of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Low Twelve is Pete Altieri (bass/lead vocals), Meister (guitar/vocals), Les Aldridge (guitar), and Travis Waterman (drums). They are based in Bloomington Illinois since their inception in July of 1998.

Filmmakers Damien Dante and Jeffrey A Swanson, the creators and producers of the Jezebeth Film Franchise have assembled their dream production team. With the success of their first full length cult classic vampire horror film Jezebeth, and a second film Jezebeth 2 Hour of the Gun in post production, the two business entrepreneurs began searching for their film editor. After a long search and with the help of some industry friends, the filmmakers signed on David OBrient Jr. from Texas. David is best known for editing: Lady Girl, Bad Sister, The Back Up, Jump Out, Junie’s Leverage, Chiaroscuro and others. Film Director Damien Dante has been working very close with David and his company C & G Productions, and the film edit is really coming together. Then just by fate, Damien and Jeffrey had meet William Shary on the set of Jezebeth 2, it was the final shoot, the vampire bar scene, and William was one of the extras. William had been a facebook friend for quite a while and mentioned that he and his partner Scott Caputo had a pro recording studio called Studio 32. After researching dozens of Chicago based studios we decided to have a meeting with William and Scott. Studio 32 was just what we were looking for., with a full size drop down projection screen, sound rooms and a large selection of sound effects. Also, William Shary is a seasoned drummer, while Scott Caputo is a keyboard player and an orchestrator, both are music producers and both have officially signed on to the team.

With the movie Jezebeth 2 Hour of the Gun more than half edited, it won’t be long before we begin our ADR, Score, Sound Effects and Foley.

With Damien Dante as Director, Writer, Producer and Jeffrey A Swanson as Cinematographer, Music Supervisor and Co Producer along with David OBrient Jr., the Editor, plus William Shary and Scott Caputo on Sound Production, it looks as though we now have our Dream Team. Look for Jezebeth 2 Hour of the Gun in the Fall of 2013 and Jezebeth 3 Hell’s Desperatos in 2014.
