09-18-11 – Phoenix, AZ>Las Vegas, NV – First of all this will not be a metal, straightedge, grindcore, or emo band. Even though I am a fan of metal music. This will be a punk band mostly. Thrash means “speed and agression”, punk means “punk rock”. Most people use the term “hardcore”, which has been misused for the past 20+ years. Very fast, ear spliting punk I guess. Anyways, Looking for drummer to start thrash punk band, must be very fast and tight on drums, have your own set and transport. Age should be at least in your mid to late 20′s because I am in my early 30′s, but don’t look it or act like it. So, if age is a problem don’t waste my time. If you have a dinky little one tom drum set don’t email me either. I have been playing guitar for 22+ years as well as drums on and off for about 20. I don’t have an ego, but am very particular(anal) about the sound and style of this. I already have around 30 or more songs written, not finished with the words to all of them yet. Already have a name for the band as well. Some of the songs are a bit on the progressive side also, not alot of three chord crap here. This is a serious hobby for me, which includes practice, playing shows and recording, so no flakes please. No drama either. I am NOT a racist, homophobic, sexist, ageist, a commie, or an officer of the word police. I do on occasion commit thought crimes though. I am NOT a hippie facist vegan type either, I do eat meat and sometimes say, “that’s gay”. Influenced by D.R.I., early Bad Brains, the Freeze, Adrenalin O.D., RKL, Iron Maiden, Septic Death, Heresy, DEVO, Husker Du, Malignus Youth, early C.O.C., Gang Green, the F.U.’s, early Screeching Weasel, Jerry’s Kids, Misfits and a zillion others. Trying to do something a little different then what is being done mostly right now and with some style, very cool and fun. I have babbled enough. Email me if this is what you are looking for.
