that depends. if you stick to similar, or the same, genres, i doubt the musicians would come up with shitty stuff. even if you mix genres... these people are well-known for a reason, and its not like every band is some miracle match with no flaws.

I think we have a record label with proof that doing something like this doesn't work *cough*Roadrunner*.

Yeah but they restricted the groups within their own label, which was not a very good label to begin with. If Nuclear Blast or EArache di dhte same thing I think that it would have had more positive results.

Yeah, you've got a good point there.

Yeah, I can't believe I forgot about that. They seem way better than a sideproject. It boggles the mind.

Even within the same genre, a lot of people who show up in dream bands don't know how to play a supporting role. Most of the people whose talent catches our eye are not only exceptionally talented, but placed in an eye-catching position, often with the band existing to create that space for them. So, when put into a band where they have to playing a supporting or collaborative role, they fall down. There's also just the fact that most supergroups, whether imagined by some fanboy or real, don't have a focal point. And a focal point can be very different between two bands in the same genre.

Bloodbath are a counterexample precisely because this isn't true. They had a generating idea (Nystrom's decision to make a throwback band), around which they gathered some big names who were willing to play out of position (Renkse as a bassist, Swano as a drummer, Akerfeldt as a just-death metal just-vocalist, everybody playing as though their own bands had never existed and changed the death metal scene) to achieve the plan. They're an exception for a reason.

I'd also like to remind some people that we have other threads for regular dream bands. The first post here explains what this one's about.

Thank you.

Also look at Voodoocult. Pure dream band that kicked ass. Mille Petroza, Chuck Schuldiner, Dave Lombardo..what more could you ask for?

But like PST 88 said. Let's try and follow the whole reason why I made this thread.

a supporting role? they'd just play the instrument they always have, like every post on this subject, ever. wouldnt that support the cause enough. i dont know man, that doesnt sound like it would have anything to do with their ability to write together.

i just tried to make a dream band for the second time. ive come to the conclusion that i hate trying this. i went for about 10 minutes. fuck. that.

Sure it would. A band is made of somewhere between three and six people, all attached to personalities and skill sets. Each person assumes a role, and does a particular thing, which, if the 3-6 people each do the right thing, gels together and makes the band tolerable. There are a lot of bands out there, and still more in genres where virtuosity's emphasized, where all the other members exist to allow one virtuoso to do his thing. A lot of people like this, or at least like the virtuoso's work. This isn't really a problem so long as the dynamics stay the same. However, take this same virtuoso and transplant him into a band that hasn't been engineered to fit his strengths, and he's suddenly an ill match. He doesn't understand how to play with people, as he's always played over them. He doesn't know how to collaborate, how to play a role in the overarching structure of a song, how to support somebody else's work. So 'playing his instrument like he always does' in this new context has a very different effect, like a very good boxer fighting a Gracie. It's still a fight, and he's still a good boxer doing what a good boxer does, but it's no longer right for the situation. Dig?

the all star team syndrome.

i guess it is can boil down to whos compatible<personality wise>and whos similiar in style. there are some bands/side projects i see locally that kinda are like mini-all stars and most of them sound better as an idea than they actually are, not that they are all totally bad.

funny how jazz musicians always swap seats and bands are trios,quartets,quintets etc. of individuals. but even that genre has its dud line-ups of what people thought would go over well.

how about this, syncronized full band orchestration

take nile and necrophagist and make them play together like a big band<keep the two drummers tho>. the drummers can trade bars, the guitars can do triple leads and crazy harmonization,interplay. some of the guitar players would have to sit out parts like in any large ensemble but if composed correctly would be a cool concept.

then get ronald mcdonald and bozo the clown to trade high and low vocals.
