Eternally Tainted


Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Piano.


This is a band idea that I've had for the last several years, so I decided to get the ball rolling on it to bring it to life. I'm looking for a second guitarist, a bassist, a drummer, a keyboardist, and a vocalist who have at least moderate skills with their respective instrument and vocal abilities, and some knowledge of music theory. I'm also looking for people who are committed to playing in a band, and enjoy creating heavy music.

The type of sound I'm going for is more around the gothic/black/atmospheric metal sound, with the keyboard playing dark melodies, and the guitars either harmonizing, and/or switching melodic roles with the keys/piano, and/or chugging with the bass. I have posted a few songs that can be used for examples, The Beginning Of An End, Visions Of Sorrow, and Realm Of Confusion. The first two I have on both video, if you want to watch, and audio, if you want to download. But I currently have just the video to Realm Of Confusion, which is the video with the three frames in it, The Beginning Of An End with four frames, and Visions Of Sorrow with the scenery.

The influences I'm going for are listed below, and they are just used as basic ideas. For those who are interested, I do have most of the equipment needed for practice, no space for drums at the moment, but I do have a mixer for you to plug into, and two mics that can be used. I am currently located in Lorraine, KS, and for any questions, I can be contacted at xcalibur 696969 at g mail dot com, or you can find the band page on facebook under Eternally Tainted, and hit me up there.
