01-28-12 – Boston, MA>Hartford, CT – We have a singer/songwriter and a drummer.
Plenty of ideas to work through, but only a couple of complete songs. We really need help with the writing process. The singer comes up with great melodies and sometimes cool chord structures, but we then always reach a plateau, and I don’t know my way around the guitar well enough to hear or play where the song should go next.
We are in dire need of another guitar player, ideally you will be able to see the direction we’re trying to head in with these songs and have some cool input, as well as being able to improv solos, no matter how basic.
We’re trying to keep it simple, for now at least, and just focus on layering and creating some really great mixes. We may eventually look for a bassist, but for right now just trying to get this off the ground.
Thanks for reading! Hope to hear from you.
Also- A very plausible outcome is that you are a session musician who also helps with the pre-production/writing phases. This way practices don’t get over-crowded with conflicting ideas. Obviously, you will be given full credit for the parts you write and record, and when the tunes are copyrighted, your names will be included.
01-17-12 – San Diego, CA>Los Angeles, CA – We are looking for a second vocalist. The one vocalist that we have already just screams (does a tiny bit of singing) but we are looking for a second guy (double front-man kind of shindig) to do more of the singing (a good amount of screaming too though). Vocal styles we are looking for vary… we are interested in anything from a Corey Taylor (Slipknot) type, to an M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold) type, to a Rody Walker (Protest the Hero) type. The only thing we ask is that you not sound like The Devil Wears Prada (good band, just not what we are looking for) or any other generic metalcore singer.
Our music is relatively technical and shred-like but our main focuses are on rhythm and chord structures. Influences on our songwriting range from: Blotted Science, Slipknot, Periphery, Lamb of God, The Contortionist, We Came as Romans, Avenged Sevenfold, Poison the Well, August Burns Red, Protest the Hero, Texas in July, The Arusha Accord, Mushroom Head.
Our sound is semi-unique (unique but understandable) but not anything super obscure like The Dillinger Escape Plan or Mr. Bungle or anything like that. Not that those bands aren’t good, but just that we want our music to be accessible as well as playing stuff like Dillinger or Mr. Bungle requires a certain kind of mental preparation that might seem like more work than fun for us as a band. On the rhythm end of things… our music is fairly breakdown heavy. We make good use of syncopation and have the occasional poly-rhythmic set of beats. On the melody end of things… we only occasionally stay diatonic in our songs. We rely heavily on triads with an added sixth below the root, randomly placed major 7th chords, diminished fifths, and Neapolitan functions. We tune to drop D.
As long as you can get to practice and shows on time and contribute something valuable to the band, that is all we really care about. We practice at our drummers house in Menifee off of the Newport exit off of the 215. We practice on Fridays and usually one other arbitrarily selected day of the week.
If you are interested… please e-mail me (a sample of past vocal work would be nice but not mandatory) or call me. — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: 1

08-27-11 – Portland, OR>Seattle, WA – We are a three piece that have been playing for a few years. We have over 50 original songs. Currently guitarist and drummer are lead vocals. We are good but looking for a Great voice to push the band to a new level. Our songs are well organized with printed lyrics, chord structures, and backup vocals. We have a great place to play and record near Sunriver. We have a pretty decent system all you would need to bring is your voice and a instrument if you play one. You don’t need experience, if you have a set of great pipes, an open mind, and desire to work towards a common goal we could be playing a lot in the future.
*We could add a Rhythem guitarist and a keyboard player as well.
