Fade to Black - Metallica Tribute


Lead Guitar.


Fade to Black, Metallica Tribute Band based out of Anne Arundel County, MD is now auditioning for a new lead guitarist to fill the Kirk Hammett position. Don’t worry about your looks, your guitar skills are far more important than whether you resemble Kirk. With just shy of 50,000 followers Fade to Black is not just a run of mill Metallica cover band. FTB aims to reproduce the LIVE Metallica experience – including full-length reproduced concert sets lasting as long as 2.5 hours.

FTB performs across the East Coast at large venues and at large events, yet we also don’t discriminate against smaller venues that can still contain us. Check out our page for the venues and destinations where we have played. s://./pg/FadeToBlackTributeBand/events/

This position is a coveted spot. We’re not just looking for a good guitar player, but rather a member to join our Fade to Black family, who is a skilled musician that is dedicated to the music and is willing to put in the time needed to produce what the crowd is expecting (METALLICA). We’re looking for a highly motivated individual who will be excited to perform in front of screaming crowds and willing to travel to destination venues within the MD-PA-VA region in addition to other locations along the East Coast (e.g. FL, GA, SC, NC, NY, and beyond), spreading the energy and power of Metallica.

This is NOT 7-day-a-week practice/show-commitment position. We all have families, normal day jobs, and other commitments so shows occur primarily on Fridays and Saturdays – our frequency of shows average out to every-other weekend (sometimes more). Some shows may require leaving on a Thursday evening or early Friday morning in order to reach the venues in time, but those shows are scheduled weeks/months in advance and are always based on everyone’s availability.

YES – THIS IS A PAID OPPORTUNITY. Out of town shows include ground transportation.

In terms of music covered – FTB focuses mainly on the first 5 albums, but has not ruled out the possibility of playing material from newer albums (except St. Anger).

While this band is very serious about what we produce, the pay-off is ridiculously fun and rewarding!
