This project is an attempt to make a unique sounding band with a rarely seen line up. The idea is 2 main vocals, not 1 lead and 1 backing but 2 MAIN vocals, 1 male 1 female who will BOTH be doing singing and screaming with various play on who’s doing what and when (harmonies, high/low screams, backing each other, switches etc), and the remainder of the band also made up (evenly) of men and women.
The general sound idea is to tie in melodic, energetic, positivity, with heavy, mosh-worthy, intensity to stay in line with what both vocalists will mostly be doing. But ultimately will be experimental, we want people to actually enjoy what they are playing!
There is a practice space to use in Holyoke, MA. Our male vocalist (who’s idea this project has mainly been so far) rents it with his main band.
Right now we are pretty easy going with a few songs being workshopped, if we get more members then we will likely be trying to meet more often (weekly or bi-weekly is the ideal).
Each of us has years of experience playing out with our main bands but we’ve only recently gotten jams going together so we meet like no-weekly to monthly but like we said before, we get more people we’ll try to play more often. Put playing out at least locally and releasing some material is the currently goal, could go beyond if things go that way but we’re just playing it by ear for now.
Also there’s the idea of maybe a band “stage look” if all involved are interested, but we’ll see who has an interest in that as we go along.
And the picture you see was the idea of Mike and his buddy’s friend from New York drew it. It’s kind of a visual depiction of the sound idea (if that makes sense lol)

For this project, I’d say bands like JINJER, Arch Enemy, Children of Bodom, Unleash the Archers, In This Moment (One song really) etc all have elements I’d like to incorporate, but again this is an Experimental project.
Members Of Band
Mike Lalonde - Vocals
Sean Adamson Jr. - Guitar
Phil Parker - Bass
We want to add another vocalist (female who can sing AND scream), another Guitarist (who also can do Rhythm & Leads as the idea is to do the same thing as vocals with switching off leads), a Drummer (Double Bass skill is a very strong plus), and if we really wanna get ambitious we could add in a Keyboardist and like a classical string player (Violin or Cello maybe?) it all depends on who we get 1st. We have 3 men atm looking to make the final line up 3 men / 3 women or 4 men / 4 women.
Mike owns the 800w PA in the studio as well as a Hartke 1/2 stack and a Keyboard he may lend out if needed. Other than that you’ll need your own gear.
