SEEKINGRhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Piano.
We are a comedy metal project known as Aimless Objective. We've been playing together for a few years now and have put together a few records worth of songs. We're are looking for additional members to fill out our ranks and begin putting on shows, but are equipped to perform with a backing track for any positions we can't fill.
We're a three-piece group: Vocals, Guitar, Drums. First, we are seeking a bass player (5 or more strings), but also a second guitar player (rhythm or lead, 7 string, bonus points for 8/9 string experience) to be able to replicate our recorded tracks from our upcoming albums. We are a bit of a concept band, but we take the music seriously. Just not ourselves.
A few of our song titles, to get a feel for the vibe:
"A Prayer to Mergerous, God of Traffic"
"She Wants to Role-play Game of Thrones"
The songs I posted should do a fairly good job of demonstrating our sonic range, but we're into everything and will try anything once just to bag on the dude who suggested it mercilessly, forever, if the idea turns out to suck. We are looking for people who are into both the metal and the comedy side of the project. Let me know if you are one of those people.

Steel Panther, Unearth, Allegaeon, Archspire, Mudvayne, Periphery, Keith Merrow, Jeff Loomis, DethKlok, Monuments, Tenacious D, Flux Conduct, The Lonely Island, PowerGlove, Pantera, Metallica, As I lay Dying, Gojira, Killswitch Engage, Lamb of God. We're a pretty progressive group, and like to cover all parts of rock and metal (and pop, and...) to add musical theatrics to the comedy in the lyrics when appropriate. Dynamics are key in Comedy Metal.
Members Of Band
Ian: Primary songwriter and extended range guitar player. Lots of band and recording experience.
Aaron: Drummer and primary contributor to songwriting, previous band experience
Geoff: Singer/Vocalist and contributor to songwriting.
Guitar: 7 and 9 String guitars, Kemper, multiple Mesa cabs, and in-ear monitoring system. I've been getting into headless guitars lately and currently use a Strandberg Boden 7 as my bottom-B. String.
PA: Behringer x32 with multiple headphone amps and wireless IEM systems. Plenty of mics. God. Too many mics.
Drums: Legit AF drums. Trust me, as a guitar player, you know that I know what a good drum set should look and sound like. And, bruh, this kit is the bee's nephew's knees right here. We also have an electric kit for songwriting purposes.
Bass: DarkGlass Alpha Omega Ultra, and "bring your own bass" + cab IR. We also have a 5 string bass for songwriting purposes. If we cannot recruit a bass player, we are prepared to use a robot (pre-tracked DIs through the AOU), but it would be more fun with a live human, amirite?
