I have a really good idea for a band. It will start as basically a cover band of the period of metal that I like the most: Early-To-Mid-Eighties “extreme metal”. I’ve but together a list of 30 something songs I can play on guitar (and sing if necessary) from some of my favorite bands from that time including Celtic Frost, Kreator, Bathory, early Exodus, Whiplash, Carnivore, Dark Angel, early-Pestilence, Obituary , Sodom, Voi Vod, and Sacred Reich. I’m trying to avoid the really well known “Big 4” bands (although a Hell Awaits Slayer song will be in there somewhere) and play music by the more obscure bands that when I heard them for the first time actually kinda scared me.
I’ve written up a cool setlist already email me if you want to see it.
There is decent resurgence in this type of music, so playing out we’d probably gain a following in LA pretty quickly.
Of course, my intent is not not always remain a cover band, but I don’t want to hand over my plans for world metal domination just yet.
I am seeking a drummer, bass player, another guitarist (if needed), and a vocalist (if needed). Hell, I’ll play bass if you can play guitar better that me (highly unlikely).
As far as my credentials, I’ve played and toured “professionally”, recorded numerous albums, have gear, car, life, etc.
