I'm a metalhead who loves to sing and just moved back to AZ. Not a growler or screamer, but not the sweet, feminine vocalist either. I would describe my voice as deeper and richer than most female singers while generally being pretty clear with a gruff tone at times. I'm looking for band members, but particularly a songwriter I can collaborate with (ideally a guitarist) ... someone who can write really heavy, epic riffs and who enjoys the same sort of bands I do. I have a great idea for the band's sound, but unfortunately I am not a gifted songwriter (lyrics I can write), so I'm looking for a partner in crime to get the music off the ground.

I'm really into European metal. I don't really listen to American stuff, which is where I differ from (it seems) everyone else in the country. I'm really looking for someone who listens to the same sort of bands I do, which includes Neue Deutsche Härte bands (if you even know what that is, you earn major points) and symphonic metal.

Favorite vocalist is Mathias Blad (singer of Falconer and musical theatre star). Yes, he's a man. No, I don't necessarily sound like a man. But a contralto with a deep and dark voice, perhaps. Not operatic, but dramatic might describe. I really like deeper voices as you can tell from my other favorite singers: Chris Pohl (Blutengel), Tommy Karevik (Kamelot/Seventh Wonder), Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode). So imagine some of that influence in a sultry female voice that is also capable of being a bit more "feminine" when called for.

So hard to describe.

Musical influences include German industrial/metal, symphonic metal that combines heavy guitars with epic classical music, a bit of darkwave. Heavy, bombastic, artistic, epic, gothic, dark and just badass in general.

Favorite bands include: Stahlmann, Oomph!, Rammstein, Nightwish, Kamelot, Blutengel, Hysterica, Falconer, The Vision Bleak, Deathlike Silence, Dream Evil, Delain.

If you like bands like Epica, Rammstein, Xandria, Eisbrecher, you and I might share some common interests.
