who's in a band?
 
i kinda wondered who actually sings in a band here. I sing in a Motorhead tribute band, hasnt got much to do with the classical stuff. But i get classical singing lessons at school.

I sing in a heavy/thrash band called Writhen, fairly new, but we're gaining popularity slowly over here (the worst place to start a metal band...)

guitar_demon 2004-11-26 17:35

in california? i thought thay had a really good underground metal scence there

Why? Is there some reason you'd associate a good thrash scene with California?

They're supposed to have a good scene within certain parameters. I don't remember what they are. But I think that you're meant to feel that, whatever town you live in, happens to be the worst place to start up a metal band.

oh, i didnt notice the thrash part. well i have heard from several people over there that the death metal scene is hot anyway...but i havnt been there in like 10 years so i can neither confirm nor deny...

It probably varies from city to city, anyway. Death metal doesn't really seem to have a focal point in the US anymore.

How's the scene in &#26132&#26132? Still as good as I remember it?

Oh, and to keep the thread on topic: I have sung in a band, and would again, but at the moment I am bandless.

guitar_demon 2004-11-26 18:07

uh the scene sucks theres like 10 people....haha

i used to "growl" when me and a few freinds would jam out cause there were shy as hell and wouldnt sing and make an ass out of themselves

Me and my friend Adam are starting a joke band called Project Blowjob. Or at least it was a joke band, where we tried to suck, but then two people came to our practice and said we were good soooo....

Anyways, I drum and do lead vocals. I need to teach my friend how to growl/scream. Our plan was to get a drummer so I could take the mic and run around as just a singer (more fun).

Well, bay area thrash is coming back believe it or not, except not as huge as it was during Metallica days, those lucky bastards.

Heavy metal scene seems to be swinging back around all over north america, it's very present in CA indeed, just better in sertain regions. ;)

To tell you the truth, San Fran has to be one of the best places to start anything, because of the wide culture, and acceptance of almost any culture, but unfortunately we don't live there... so we have to deal with the place where we do live, which is nu-metal and hardcore riden. Hardcore is slowly going away, but this place (Fresno), has been the pinacle of hardcore for a loooong time, but now it's moving toward metalcore and grindcore, none of which I admire.
But the promissing thing is that there's a lot of people who are fed up with all of this around here, and are looking for a good all around metal band with a scence of something new, keeping the old roots, and this is where we step in. The only problem is that we just started in the local scene, and it's hard geting noticed because of the crappy selection of public places to play at, most of them are in areas where people wouldn't want to go unless they were payed to, which is upsetting and sad that the rest of this city (which is so wide spread) doesn't have any decent venues in the nicer, more metal friendly, areas.

Anyhow, that's my rant on that, sorry if it's too long, just couldn't resist explaining why Fresno CA sucks so much (but it's getting better... no matter how hard it is for me to admit this).

Well, I'll get you guys some tracks of Writhen's demo sometime, although the voice on there is not mine (I hate it...), and it hurts to know that I sound so much better live, and how much we screwed up this first demo. :(

The band that I'm in right now, me and the bass player split our songs in half, he sings on like 2, and I sing the other 2. And we have one old school thrash that we both sing on.

Chad 2004-12-01 19:45

I sing and play guitar in my band Sufferance. We've got a demo out now and have opened for Kataclysm, Axis of Advance, Rites of thy Degringolade, Three Inches Of Blood, and Cryptopsy. We've been called black/thrash by most people, and have been compared to Dissection, Kreator, Sodom and Satyricon.

As for the local scenes, it always comes and goes in waves. We got a pretty good one going one here in Alberta at the moment.

Grats to you :beer:
I find it hard as hell to find decent musicians to play with in vegas. Hopefuly ill have better luck all the way the fuck across the states in North Carolina, I'm moving there in January. Anyone know anything about the metal scene there, ill be living about 20-30 minutes from Rowly?( i think thats how its spelled)

powersofterror 2004-12-02 10:13

The metal scene here in jerkwater city, (Denton, North of Dallas-TX) is pretty scarce. Yes there are a ton of metalheads, but they seem to always hide in their own little corners and not let it be known. Every once in a while I can see a cool dude with long hair and a Morbid Angel shirt, but it would be too weird to run up to one of 'em and exclaim, "hey, are you cool? I'm into metal too!!!! Wow, wanna start a band with me?:p."

SmotPoker 2004-12-02 15:50

Maybe try hanging out at guitar center and talking to people every once in a while. Here they have a bulliten board at the back of the store where the lesson rooms are, theres a lot of fliers about bands looking for members there. most of em are bullshit though, I met one dude that was legit though. we jammed for a while but didnt really work out for too long.

darkexodite 2004-12-02 18:06

those bulliten boards don't work at all. Over here people seem to either ignore them, or plainly too lazy to call, or they think that they're gods and everyone is below their supreme level, or they're 12 years old...

Yea, they're all a bit lame about it, but I think you get more assholes than legit people through that process.

cxmachine 2004-12-03 23:44

i also play guitar and "sing" in the band i'm with, mostly growls and barked vocals. my clean voice sounds too much like the load years of metallica.

IcedSyrus102 2004-12-05 01:07

i play guitar and sing in my band, my vocals are basically bodom screaming, deicide growling, and megadeth thrash vocals, we are just a thrash black metal band were just starting to get are shit together and about to go record a demo and play shows

BLS 2004-12-05 02:27

I do backup growls every now and then but thats about it.
