Post-Metal/Screamo Band

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a couple of people interested in starting a post-metal/screamo band.

Personal influences include:

Rosetta

Suis La Lune

The Ocean

Stand-Up Guy

Isis

Caspian

Bloody Panda

Kayo Dot

Flatlands

Callisto

Tombs

I want to do something that has epic sweeping ambient moments but also has very heavy intense moments too.

I want to play guitar predominantly but will also contribute backing vocals if needed.

I'm looking for people to do the following:

Vocals

Guitar

Bass

Drums

You must have your own equipment (to a decent standard) and be prepared to practice regularly with the intention of playing regularly and hopefully looking at touring as well.

Age and gender not a problem. But i would prefer people with previous band experience, though that is not essential.

Message me or post here if you're interested.

Phil

I have a bassist now, but i still need a vocalist, guitarist and a drummer.

Flatlands were great in Dundee, i shall definitely be at any September date be it in Aberdeen or Dundee.

Anyone else interested in the band?

' date=' post: 466340"']i could be up for vocals and/or guitar. im not a 'prolific' lyricist mind.

Cool, that could be quite good so long as it doesn't get to be a problem with your other band.

for sure. i was going to initially say just vocals, but im not that good and tend to sound like, well, a girl, possibly during some sort of infliction of pain. but thats good for a screamo band right? ;)

(because with vocals there is a slightly lessened musical involvement.)

It's up to yourself really, you can play guitar as well if you want or just do vocals. Yelpy vocals work quite well with screamo stuff in my opinion :)

just see how recruitment goes. at the moment my guitar tone is pissing me off to the point of not wanting to play it; but it will be resolved so i would be happy to go either way.

Yeah, sounds good. I'm busy for the next two weeks finishing off recording some stuff with my old band but after that i'm clear. Is the last week in May ok for the rest of you? Let me know what days suit folks best :up:

Quality, i'm still very interested in getting something new started as i feel like i'm missing something since Genevieve went on "hiatus". I may have a new job within the next month or so *crosses fingers* :up:

There was but it's probably waned by now. I'm sure we could wrangle up some more folks nearer when the time comes.
