I'm honestly just looking for cool people to hang out and play music with and have some fun. The last band I was in the members were way too critical, serious, and full of themselves and they ruined the music as a result; soaking the fun out of everything.
I enjoy a lot of different music and I think I'm very easy going and chill. Ideally, metal music is what I would like to play: anything from Caveman Slam to Technical death metal to Progressive metal to Grind/Grindcore...brutal, intense, and fun. I also would be able to provide (legitimately in my opinion) the best metal vocalist (for this genre) that NJ has to offer. BUT having said that i doubt there is something I wouldn't agree to play so long as we were having fun.
I'd place myself as an intermediate to advanced player better at lead guitar, with high creativity and the ability to rapidly progress. Lately, I've been taking practice to a more focused approach and really hammering down my technique and learning more music theory. I mostly play my 7 string in A standard tuning, but also have an 8 string in typical standard tuning I like to play.
Wayyy too many...I'll try to give a range of bands so you can get an idea of what I'd prefer. Again, I'm open to any music suggestions
Between the Buried and me (old wayyyyy > new)
Abominable Putridity & slam bands of the like
The Red Chord
Cattle Decapitation (before their record label decided to sell them out because they found out Travis Ryan could do "clean" vocals)
Beneath the Massacre
Type O Negative
Iniquitous Deeds, Iniquitous Savegery
Schecter Hellraiser C7 FR Sustainiac (7 string)
Schecter C8 Silver Mountain
Schecter Damien 7
Boss ME-80 multieffects pedal
Peavy 100w combo for small jams
Cheaper Marshall half-stack I haven't gotten to enjoy in a long time
I also purchased Ugritone's entire set of drum programs/MIDI files to make my life easier because drummers are nonexistant in NJ it seems. It was a good buy
