ABOUT

I'm Dani, currently beginning a death metal project. Looking for another guitarist or bass player who can sing.

Sound is heavy, generally moderate tempos, but I like to mix it up as well, throw in some speed and some ballad and doom. Also like to use Eastern European folk melodies. I am currently the main songwriter, do the growling/screaming, play all guitars, bass, and keys in the studio of what we've recorded. We also have a soprano who will play keys when we can finally play live. Would love another female singer to add layers of harmony who also plays guitar or bass. Trying to keep the live band minimal to make practice and performances smooth as possible. I work with a pro drummer in the studio, but he's not officially attached to the band, so if you're an interested drummer, hit me up! If you're a strings player, violin/viola/cello, and you want to play with a metal band, good GOD hit me up.

Lyrically I explore a lot of Buddhist themes, but by no means am I limited to that (with everything going on right now, racism definitely needs to be tackled especially due to so much fu*king racism within the metal genre and scene.)

I have three jobs, one of which is as a composer for a podcast company, so I don't have the time or energy to make this band my main focus. I'm not trying to "make it big," I just want to put out great music and play it live. If you're into that, great! I will always pay everyone in the band before myself. I don't care if I make nothing doing this. If you need more compensation than piddly tips, that could be doable too! Not trying to insult pro musicians, but my budget is limited.

Band is called Zhuk (find us on I.G. at: zhukmusic )
