Blackwoods is a agglomerate Metal band as clued above lol. We are influenced by nearly everything within the whole Metal-verse of Sub-genres if you follow them. Currently,the bands sound has been shaped around Groove influences and Melodic thrash with little extreme-progressive undertones; some songs may have a little bit of Black metal influences to certain Sections, but mildly suggested. Our music is often moody, known to hold peoples interest, doesn't have very many droning moments but serves a lot of high energy and dynamics.

We have Three composers in this band who all have a different background and image to their music tastes, though, contrast well together to form this sonic union. Most of us write our songs on our own and throw them to the table and at times collaborate. We often still leave room for everyone to put their own stamp in each others composition and make it OURS rather than "Mine".

In The Summer of 2011, The band was Nominated into the MAMA awards only after three months of being a functioning band with a 5 track demo at hand. In the August of 2012, Played X-fest at the Sin cal metal stage and has played with Fear Factory. Have had many other nation act opportunities given...But had to skip out because we are indeed...without a vocalist.

The band has many songs written and ready for our first album to be recorded. We are looking to Record this winter. We do plan to get touring together by next summer.

Skills Required: Must be able to sing cleans and aggressive style Vocals.

STAGE PERFORMANCE is a must, and if its not so strong then it will be worked on.

PLEASE have a professional mindset, be as prompt as possible with arrangements made for practice, Shows, or ect. Be reliable. And DON'T bring any drama into this level minded and remember that its a band. Everyone's opinions are counted for and decisions are handled with democracy. If your opinionated...then leave your bias at the curb where it belongs.
