ABOUT

Multi instrumentalist with a wide taste in music. I'd like to find people who are interested in starting a fun, chaotic, forward thinking band with an ambient spacy side that blurs the lines between hardcore and more extreme forms of metal. Huge emphasis on making art and tastefully melding other forms of music. Let's get funky, sad or kvlt if need be. Also, I am an okay to decent drummer but only practice maybe once a week.

I have a Peavey 6505+ combo that needs a doctor :( neither channels are working. I'd love to get it fixed asap but also low key looking for something a little more versatile. At least for cleans! The distortion is amazing! I currently have a few bedroom modeling amps I play around with that are ideal for my living situation but willing to invest in a good head and cabinet when I start talking to someone. I have a orange bass terror and a 4/10 ampeg cab as well for bass duties.
My effects pedals are mostly simple and straightforward, I have a clean boost, compressor, and tube screamer. My weirdness will come from the boss ME80 multi effects pedal in the fx loop. It has a ton of options for modulating effects, secondary EQ's and oscillating delays. To end it all, I have a solid reverb pedal, a noise gate and a looper.
