Description:
Brett Eriksen (given name Brett Sarachek) was a guitarist who played for two Los Angeles thrash metal bands in the 80's, Viking (1986–1990) and Dark Angel (1990–1992).

Viking era

He formed Viking in the spring of 1986 with Ron Eriksen (who was not his brother, they used the surname only for stage purposes).Viking managed to land a recording contract upon the completion of their second live concert, a feat practically unheard of in the clubs of Hollywood.After two records, Do or Die (1988) and Man of Straw (1990), they disbanded.

Dark Angel era

He had been friends with Gene Hoglan (drummer of Dark Angel) and the other Dark Angel members ever since the band shared the same stage back in the late 80's when he played for Viking.When Viking Man Of Straw was finished and released, Brett Eriksen became a temporary replacement for Dark Angel's Jim Durkin somewhere the east coast during the Leave Scars tour.From this tour, Dark Angel released the live album Live Scars (which also featured Viking's Ron Eriksen as a guest vocalist).When Viking disbanded, Brett joined Dark Angel full-time.In 1991, he played on the entire Time Does Not Heal album, and soon after this, Dark Angel disbanded.
