09-22-11 – Seattle, WA>Portland, OR – We are currently a 3-piece band with nearly a full album of material written already. Some powerful, passionate vocals are the main thing we’re missing. We are looking to add another guitarist eventually as well. I don’t think we’re set on a specific style of singing, but we want to have little, if any, screaming or growling despite how heavy the music is at times. Nothing too operatic either. Ideally we’d like a vocalist with previous band experience who has performed a fair amount and recorded albums. We have some lyrics written but it would be nice if you could also craft meaningful, poetic lyrics of your own as well.
We are all in our late 20s, have lots of experience writing, performing and recording with multiple bands and are very proficient at our instruments. Currently we practice twice a week on the east side (Kirkland or Bellevue). Our influences range from fairly mainstream acts like Muse and Incubus to more obscure and progressive bands like Meshuggah, Protest the Hero, Animals as Leaders, and Opeth. It’s hard to avoid at least a little grunge influence as well when you grow up in Seattle in the 90s. Our goal is just to create heavy, energetic music that is enjoyable and challenging to play, while also sticking to a short, pop-oriented format full of hooks that the non-elitist listener can still enjoy. — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: 1
