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 am starting a Judas Priest Tribute band and am in need of a another guitar player who can do leads as well as rhythm, a bass player to provide that low end we desperately need, and a singer that can belt out those Halford screams and get us to the promised land. I have been working in the tribute scene for a few years now and let me tell you, it is hot and heavy and is growing much more popular these days. People love hearing good tribute/cover bands nowadays when they go out to bars/ clubs and I know some awesome bands and have grown to be friends with them too so if this takes off, I can get us on the bill at some pretty sweet venues. So if anyone out there has some similar goals to me then lets get together and collaborate and see what happens. We currently consist of a drummer (me), a guitar player, and another guitar player who is filling in on bass for the time being until we find something permanent. We have also been putting together some original music too and would love to original music as well. We just need the remaining couple pieces of the puzzle so we can pay homage to one of the greatest heavy metal bands of all time and play the music the way it was meant to be played. 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
