ABOUT

I've played in extreme metal bands like deathgrind and sludge before but trying to broaden my horizons and I've played at least 50 shows.
I'm looking to join a local band preferably as a bassist for weekend gigs And something that is easy to learn like punk, metal or hard rock. I have Very reliable transportation. To be honest, I want to play shows get wasted and fu*k slutty groupies,jk. And I would prefer to get paid to play gigs. Not that pay to play BS. I don't look like that picture I uploaded anymore, I got fatter because of my monthly anti-psychotic medication btw. So if you have a basic membership and can't initiate contact text me 9519023368 im friendly ? I would prefer to make a compositional duo or power trio live for more money..

Influences

Too many to name. Metal, rock, alternative, electronica, indie. NOT a big follower or fan of classic rock and country.

Here are some realistic examples of what type or music I want to play:

Tool,Helmet,Hum,Smashing Pumpkins,Bleach era Nirvana,Sunny Day Real Estate,Filter,Chevelle,Acid Bath,Down,Kyuss,Deftones,Interpol,White Zombie,Far,ATDI,Smile Empty Soul,Failure,Fudge Tunnel,Black Cobra,Stoner rock/Doom, Sludge rock, desert rock, Florida stoner metal like Floor,Cavity,Dove,Torche ect..

Something heavy mid tempo but not too downtuned (unlike Korn nor Djent - its not realistic unless I upgrade to a 5 string) BASSically Drop D high distortion guitar and with emotion. If the vocals are emo, the music has to be heavy alternative (not metalcore). I cant get into scene-core! Or obnoxious screamo!

Music I like but not realistic in making as a group:

Nine Inch Nails,Prodigy,Aphex Twin,dark IDM,Orgy,Deadsy,Stabbing Westward,The Beatles lol,Stuff with too much electronics ect..
