Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Background Singer.


Æleph is a Progressive Punk (or "Pronk") project of mine that focuses primarily on playing an intriguing breed of Art Rock, blending together the Prog(ressive Rock) sounds and styles of Rush, ELP, Pink Floyd, Genesis and Tool with the Melodic-Post-Hardcore-Power-Punk-Alternative Rock attitude and sounds of Nirvana, Local H, The Slats, Dinosaur Jr. and Husker Du.

I also may try some more lighter and experimental keyboard/synthesized rock music in the future, but for now it's loud and heavy guitar stuff.

I definitely need people to get this project working as I know of some friends who I've practiced with, but either prefer Metal or Jazz as opposed to the Punk that I'm into playing/writing. That and/or they are simply too busy to commit to such a project or live too far away. I'm in need of a bassist (who can also opt to play rhythm guitar if needed) and ESPECIALLY need (fast/hard-hitting) drummer (metal would be cool, but not double-kickdrums/36-piece kit metal). It would also be very much preferred if your interests and/or styles are aligned with mine. If you are at all interested, PLEASE contact me at aelephband(at) dot com (obviously fill in the spaces so it becomes a proper email address)!
