Drums, Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

Hello, thanks for checking out this page! "Voithea" (incorrectly spelled Greek word for "help") is a brand new north Jersey based teenage metal band looking for members within the 14-18 year old age range.

We currently have a rhythm guitarist / vocalist, and a bass player. We need a lead guitarist, preferably with 4+ years experience who can write musical, technically impressive, and memorable solos. We also need a drummer; not sure how many years drumming experience would be sufficient, but we're looking for someone hard-hitting, creative, and can play comfortably around 200 BPM. Any potential members should preferably be within an hour long drive of Vernon, NJ and have reliable transportation. The jam space can either be at my place or yours'. If you're a drummer, it'll likely be yours' so you won't have to tear down, haul, and set up your kit all the time. Guitar players only need to have an axe that stays in tune and doesn’t sound like crap. Amp-wise, you are gonna need something that can keep up with a live drummer; but there are plenty of cheap 15 watt tube amps out there that can shake the walls coming out of the right 2x12.

We believe chemistry between band members is more important than technical skill, so we'd love members that are, above all else, fun to hang out with. We don't care for gender, political or religious beliefs, skin color, or any of that bullsh*t, so don't try to make us care; we only care about what kind of person and musician you are. For our safety, we do recommend you’re vaccinated against Covid unless you have medical problems preventing you from getting it.

We're currently in the process of writing and recording guitar tracks for a few potential songs, the most complete being titled SWINEHOUSE. All of the riffs and a melodic solo for the song have been written, and I'm working on lyrics. Bass, live drums, and a second guitar solo still need to be written and tracked. Before these songs are done, if we get any gig opportunities, we could cover popular punk, metal, and rock songs to get us by. And, until we get gigs, we can just hang out, jam, and build our catalogue of musical ideas. I personally have a catalogue of over 70 guitar riffs that I'd love to put a beat behind!
