The Anxiety Effect


Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar.


We are currently a studio based metal band (formally a regional touring act) looking for a second guitar player. Lead abilities are of interest. We are an all original metal band. No cover songs. We have no plans to play live at the moment, but if the right lineup comes together and it works schedule-wise, we may attempt it. Style wise is normally labeled metalcore, but with all the genres and sub-genres that people are anal about, it's hard to say what we would be called. It's aggressive music with some melodic vocals throughout. We have tracks listed here on our profile to checkout.

We are looking for someone who can commit 1 to 2 nights a week to write/rehearse with. We are a tech-savvy group so we are looking for someone who has the ability to record and send riff ideas via online services in between group sessions to keep ideas going.

No gear is needed other than a guitar at our location. Between studio gear and live practice gear, we have everything needed to work on material. Just bring a guitar and a cable.

We write and record in our own home studio, and send our tracks to be mix/mastered in higher end studios. Our last two singles were co-produced, mixed, and mastered by Chimaira producer Ben Schigel, and we have released them worldwide online through all major media outlets (Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon ETC) so we try to shoot for high production value.

Contact us if interested!
