Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm looking to play regularly again (jams, studio, or out), regardless of genre. It's just too damn fun to make noise with others. I'm a multi-instrumentalist and producer who records at home because my old bandmates live in Virginia now and I'm stuck in New Jersey (Princeton area). I enjoy making loud, beautiful sounds, anything from dream metal and prog to shoegaze and space/spy rock with an occasional side of southern-fried slide guitar. Gen-Xer with a firm grasp of '90s heavy music. Happy to play covers and originals. Find me at cyphernaut on b-camp.

Influences

I'm all over the map but tend to enjoy heavier, spacier rock, metal, and prog with a little punk mixed in. I live at the Princeton Record Exchange. For bands I keep coming back to: Tool, King Crimson, Rush, Mastodon, Gojira, Animals as Leaders, Failure, Mogwai, Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, Portishead, XTC, Pink Floyd, and the classics ofc.
