ABOUT

Looking to put together a dynamic progressive/psychedelic metal project combining polyrhythms, odd time signatures, ambient soundscapes, dance/electronic elements, and world folk music. Interested in male or female vocalists and other thoughtful and experimental bandmates. Growls and screams welcome but secondary in importance to good clean expressive and dynamic vocals. Interested in lyrics exploring topics like psychology, spirituality, sociology, science, history, philosophy, and politics. Versatile guitarist, electronic musician, and multi-instrumentalist. Decent vocalist but not opposed to a more proficient vocalist to take lead duties. Playing since 1996 and have been in a variety of bands. Home recording experience since 2003.
