ABOUT

Hello friends! My name is Chris and I am looking for some fellow musicians out there who wanna rock as bad as I do. I was in a thrash metal band for 5 years up until a little over a year ago and just been doing fill-in gigs here and there, but mainly just playing at home and developing my skills better and just try some new things. I am looking to find a new group to join and hopefully go somewhere with or even start a new project. I am totally cool with either one, whichever comes around first really. I can do a variety of styles from metal, rock, funk, techno/dubstep, and a little touch of blues. Ideally I would like to try a power/industrial/thrash band and see how that goes. My ideal group would be at least 2 guitars, bass, drums, 2+ vocaIists/backup vocalists, and keyboards/DJ. Basically I like it heavy, groovy, and just overall rockin' if that makes sense. I believe in having a "wall of sound" by having layers for depth and completeness, but there is certainly some wiggle room there. This is just in my perfect world not a requirement. All in all, I just miss playing live shows and being up on stage with Pearl shining under the stage lights and just having fun! So if anyone out there has some similar goals to me then lets get together and collaborate and see what happens. I just want to jam. Hit me up anytime at cschiller94 at g mail and lets talk shop and set up a time to jam. So in the words of Scotty from Sirius XM, "smoke 'em if you got 'em, stay brutal headbanger"
***Just a side note: my kit is kind of a pain in the butt and takes some time to pack up, transport and reassemble due to the amount of stuff and hardware, so we can either jam at my place or if there is another good spot to set up at that isn't super far then I'm good with that too. Just wanted to mention that ahead of time***

Influences

Chris Adler from Lamb of God is probably my biggest influence if that paints a clearer picture...
But I also take some influence from Charlie Benante, Gene Hoglan, Niko McBrain, Travis Smith, Lars Ulrich, John Bonham, Neil Peart, Keith Moon, Bill Ward, Tim Alexander, Jay Lane, Joey Jordison, The Rev, Dave McClain, Vinnie Paul, and Dave Lombardo.
There are others too, but the list is already long enough....haha
