Iron Forge


Lead Guitar.


We are a Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band out of the north Chicago suburbs. We like to blend past and modern influences to create a unique and interesting brand of music. We draw from everything from Classic Rock, Progressive, Old School Metal, Alternative, Modern Metal, Grunge and even Acoustic rock and Pop on occasion. We try not to classify ourselves too much. Our main goal is to make good music while also challenging ourselves and having fun.

We are currently looking for another guitar player. We need someone who is willing and able to switch between lead and rhythm duties. We'd also prefer someone who is capable of providing backing vocals and harmonies We are very serious about music and want to take this band to the professional level so we also need someone who is passionate and willing to help us promote the band and network. Age is not a huge issue. Someone in our age group (20s) would be good, but that's not very important.

We currently rehearse in Skokie (just north of the Roger's Park area of Chicago). We like to rehearse at least once to twice a week and gig out a few times a month (if not more).
