ABOUT

Currently auditioning players that wish to collaborate, create and produce an 11 song album that is now under construction.

3 songs have now been written, 1 with lyrics, 2 without (and soon to have) and now working on 1 of 2 instrumentals which will include Celtic tribal instruments.

I need an additional rhythm / lead guitar warrior, bass warrior, double kick drummer warrior, and keyboard warrior willing to be involved with some serious grueling and rigorous playing that will be required with a dash of techno flavor.

If you are a singer (male or female) that has gruff raw vocals such as Amon Amarth or Arch Enemy, you're in although the music style with what is being written differs somewhat from what they do.

My position in the band : Front Man : Singer / Songwriter including rhythm and lead guitar. Gruff raw vocals with power although will gladly give another singer a chance.

Viking warrior attitude with power and creativity is a must. Earth Arch Angels call to war. This is not fake christian religious music and no whining wimps ! Metal only !!!

Advanced and expert players only and I will consider intermediates. I'm not worried about flashy guitar playing and putting out as many notes as possible in one song. Simplicity and power is key with a message and a purpose.

I don't give a F*** how pretty your equipment is and F*** fame, this is about earning big money, being creative musicians and ridding the American Universe of a negative disease musically or do you want to stay at home with mommy and your little girlfriend living some pipe dream that leads to a dead end? You only get famous when the money and the album sales start soaring as an independent, especially without a so called record contract in which they will rip you off and leave you poor and in debt. Quit chasing the carrot.

If you don't have the warrior fire within you please don't waste my time.

I have plenty of experience, confidence, and a bad attitude with an edge to go with it for good reason albeit I'm humble.

I also have a music and video business degree and I have worked professionally within the music industry. A knowledge about the business is a must if you want to be a part of it without getting ripped off and thrown curb side. Yes, I have connections in the music industry. Don't let this intimidate you.

Will you accept a challenge, dare to dream and make it a reality or will you turn away ? The choice is yours. You must be willing to invest time and money, there is no musical genie. Work is involved, so don't be a puss.

If you are a confident, dedicated, committed, goal oriented, imaginative, creative, intelligent, knowledgeable musician who is willing to put in the work and effort necessary to reap the rewards thereof with someone who has a plan in order to be successful while being true to yourself, then send me an email to :

Those that are interested in guitar lessons and songwriting skills can also send me an email.

Drug addicts, alcoholics, sleazeballs, posers, egoists, and those with no job, direction or vision with no respect for themselves or others need not apply. Moderate social drinkers, smokers and high times friendly people are welcome.

EQUIPMENT

Currently an Ibanez guitar and a spider amp. It's all that's needed, sound board can do the rest.

Preferred Sound : Smooth, silky, satiny, sexy, velvity, comfortably dark, punch you in the face, grundgy, heavy edge with a hint of Metallic evil and an I'm going to get you shadow stalker eerieness holding a knife that will cut you type of sound.

My guitar tuning is lower than standard guitar tuning (c,g,c,f,a,d) and is tuned to a frequency lower than 440 Hz. Those who will be members of the band will need to have their instruments (bass, guitar and drums) tuned to the frequency I have established for these songs. No, it will not bust your strings or skins and I will help you do this. It's extremely easy.

The Keyboardist should also have a keyboard that can change its frequency to either below or above the 440 Hz frequency.

I study, create, and have an ear for sound and frequencies with its various shades of tone color.
