Down By My Sins


"Down By My Sins is a power metal band that plays songs with a melodic eloquence and style that is untouchable, especially in modern day metal. Their guitarist Rocker Al is absolutely nothing less than amazing. His combination of neo-classical melodic shredding, and bluesy David Gilmore style wailing notes, blended perfectly with bombastic, anthemic grindage is outstanding. The operatic singer's energy, tone, and vibrato is also tremendously unparalleled. Down By My Sins can easily win over every heavy metal fan on the planet." Dr. Mia Wu - Classical Violinist/Music Teacher- Julliard Grad

Great Male Metal Singer Needed in Manhattan, New York !

Great male metal singer needed to fill vacant position. The band plays original metal songs with a melodic eloquence and style that is untouchable, especially in modern day metal. Your influences should be; Rob Halford, Jeff Tate, Michael Kiske, Bruce Dickinson, Ronnie James Dio, Ozzy Ozbourne, Robert Plant. The music is a modern, classically influenced style like Helloween, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Skid Row. . . with a progressive edge similat to Yngwie Malmsteen and Dream Theatre. If you're not into thunderous drum grooves, pounding anthemic bass lines and relentless over the top monster guitar chops....this band is not for you! Rehearsals are once weekly in Manhattan. This is not a paid gig, yet. . must join for the love of playing this music live. We need you to be competent and have the drive, dedication, and passion needed for this. We play originals, and when we play long sets. . .we mix in covers. Future plans include releasing our record.... which is almost done, live showcases and a tour.

Send us a request at rockeral and we will send you audio samples
