SEEKING

Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.

ABOUT

I'm looking to start either:
1 - A new all original heavy project, I've never heard a band that combines the musicianship & emotional majesty of Pink Floyd or Agalloch, with the aggression & energy of Slayer or Havok, with lyrics that could've been written by Ron Paul & Tony Robbins.

2 - An all cover band (covering non-metal songs, but making them very heavy. Think MInnie the Moocher as Korn would do it, or Eye of the Tiger by Slayer, or how about Waiting for the Sun by Opeth, another idea is #1 Crush from Garbage as done by Candlemass).

A Little History

I've been playing on and off for about 30 years, and have always had an ear for the harder edge. As a beginning musician in Huntington Beach, CA I was in several local bands (Antaragot, Stryknyne, Roxin, Dealer), playing the clubs and parties.

After a difficult couple of years in my early 20's, I put down my guitar, got clean and sober, got married and started a family. Focusing on the things the normal family man would, his wife, children and career.

Something was always missing though, and after 15 years, I once again picked up the guitar and wrote music.

In the early days, I always wanted to be a "Rockstar", but now much older, "stardom" has become much less important, so now I write and record more for my own pleasure, than for "making it big".

However, if the opportunity presented itself to collaborate, perform, and/or license my music for use in other projects, I would be most interested.

What I would love most to come out of my music would be for it to be used in videogames, movies, sports videos, etc...

The music is ideal for use in the action and horror genres.

Currently, I'm looking for local musicians, who are interested in writing & recording as a side project to life. I have a great job, that I do not intend giving up, I want to rehearse twice a week, gig - once a month maximum, then record & market over the internet, the best possible product we can produce.

What I see is a Hard Rock / Metal band - with a positive metal attitude. NOT religious.

In order to be considered, you must:

1. Have a stable income
2. Be drug & alcohol dependency free
3. Have appropriate equipment
4. Have obvious talent
5. Have a positive attitude.
6. NO DRAMA PLEASE...

Not necessarily in that order !!!

If you meet this criteria & this sounds like something you could be interested in contact me at the contact info at top of page...
