Paul Duell (Guitar)

 Back in 1984 when Paul first heard Twisted Sister’s “We’re not gonna take it” he was instantly hooked on rock n roll. It wasn’t long after that he would dream of becoming a guitarist and a musician someday. That dream became a reality for Paul back in 1998 when he started the industrial metal band I’m Just a Number. That band would be short lived, but it only opened more doors &  it made him strive to be a better musician and a songwriter. A year later in 1999. . Paul started managing the hard rock band Hybrid and everything took off from there. Not only did he manage Hybrid, he also organized three different charity music festivals to raise money for the Salvation Army, American Cancer Society, and a little 5 year old girl named Allison M. Who had terminal brain cancer at the time, but is still in remission and alive to this day. Paul was recognized as a humanitarian for his local community work with charities. Paul was also the entertainment coordinator for the Titusville, Florida Indian River Festival back in 2000. After managing a slew of other local bands, he decided to quit the management music scene in 2002, to pursue his interest again in playing guitar and songwriting. In 2003 he started a solo career in acoustic folk music, but that didn’t make him happy as rock n roll and metal called him by his name. In 2005 Paul was approached by a friend to start up a shock rock punk band called The Pfiles. During that time Paul also played guitar for the acoustic pop trio band Crooks, Rolen and Fields. Like all good things those bands came to an end. Shortly after that Paul started the NuMetal band Pillslave who would later become Dominant by Default. Dominant by Default rocked the Central Florida music scene for 4 years and was granted the opportunity to open for national recording artists Saliva and Eye Empire. In 2014 Paul started the aggressive NuMetal band KropDuster whose first show opened for the punk band Green Jelly. In 2016 he decided to take a year off from the local music scene, but little did he know at that time a year later that Joey Factor from Hybrid would give him a call to join New Dilemma and so Paul did. To this day. Paul has written over 5 albums of music, over 50 solo songs and has played in various side projects throughout the years. Paul’s influences are Mudvayne, Limp Bizkit, Nirvana, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Deftones, Korn, August Burns Red, Bring Me the Horizon, Demon Hunter, Slipknot, Coal Chamber, Sevendust, Linkin Park and Soulfly. Besides his love for songwriting and playing guitar for New Dilemma. this guy loves rollercoasters, seafood, tacos, and medium rare steak. In his free time he loves to play retro video games and watch classic 80’s, 90’s comedy, drama and horror movies. His favorite quote is from the video game Mortal Kombat. “There is no knowledge that is not power” 

Brent Donnelly (Drums)

Brent Donnelly's love for drums started when he was in his teens! He became roommates With Joey Factor's cousin who had a drum set & the rest is history. As the drummer for Hybrid, he played many big venues as the band was on the rise,  Such as House of Blues Orlando & winning battle of the bands at the Legendary Station, Brent knew this is what he wanted to do! Musical influence comes from many bands for Brent, but some of the favorites are Tool, Lamb of God, Dave Matthews, The Acacia Strain, (Older) Breaking Benjamin,Sepultura,Slipknot & The forever life changing music of Nirvana! " If you play the music they will come"

Chris Fanning (Bass)

  Chris Fanning began his musical training at the age of 10 when he found his dad's left handed guitar and reversed the string.  Dad showed him how to play You Really Got Me by the Kinks and after that Chris was hooked. Fast forward a few years and Chris discovered Van Halen on MTV (when they actually played music videos). Amazed by the stage presence of the band Chris knew that's what he ultimately wanted to do. When Chris was in Jr High he was a drummer in the school jazz band, his teacher knew he played some guitar and had the idea of putting a bass guitar in his hand. Chris took to the bass immediately and now it is his instrument of choice. Chris' influences include Van Halen, Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Queensryche, Spinal Tap, Ozzy Osborne, Sammy Hagar, and many others. Chris has 2 full length CDs released on an independent label with his side project Halitosis, and has recently recorded an EP “Live in Houston” while on tour as direct support opening for D.R.I. on their Gulf Coast tour as a member of Toxic Shock. Chris has also been known to hug random strangers for no reason at all. 

Zach Taylor (Guitar)

Zach started playing guitar in his teens like most kids do when he decided it was time to step out on the stage! The band he help put together would make their 1st appearance as Uncle Eddy opening up for Hybrid. Hybrid was very impressed with his skills & asked him to join forces & he did. Zach brought a new level to the band which really helped fill out the sound which ended up winning battle of the bands at the legendary station.
