SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar.

ABOUT

I'm mostly influenced by John Bonham of Led Zeppelin. I'm looking to join or start a band with a style similar to Zeppelin, though I also really like Fleetwood Mac and wouldn't mind having a band like that. I lkke metal, but Metallica is about as heavy as I'd want to go, since I prefer using a single bass drum pedal for now. Additionally, I'm also into more modern stuff like Nirvana, Linkin Park, Breaking Benjamin, and Foo Fighters. I like to play aggressively and daringly, sometimes following the guitar or vocal lines instead of the bass, but I can play laid back and reserved if the music calls for it. I'm really into anime (Gundam, DBZ, Zoids, Cowboy Bebop) as well as oldschool video games like Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy, and would like to sort of reflect that kind of stuff in my music without directly copying the soundtracks. I just sort of want a rock band that combines oldschool rock with the Japanese anime/video game style. Something that has both soft and heavy music; that treads into the territories of both light and shade. Something familiar, yet new and different.

I've dabbled with guitars and piano/keyboards a bit, and have come up with original stuff. It's I like to use audacity to record, and FL studio to mix stuff, though I'm open to trying just about anything, including recording on tapes. Whatever works is fine by me. In the end I'd like to go on tour and release studio albums.

I'm looking for people who are around my age, in their 20s, who are intelligent, easy to get along with, willing to practice/gig 7 days a week, and don't have excessive drug/alcohol/anger issues. If you're creative, motivated, open-minded, and willing to go into uncharted territories and explore the unknown in music, that's exactly what I'm looking for.

Also, I rent out a storage unit in Hershey that I practice in. It's probably not an ideal place for band practice, but I'll do whatever it takes.
