View Full Version : Texas/Musicians

02-03-2009, 12:41 AM
sorry for making one too many threads on this forum but I noticed not only a lack of Texan musicians making threads I also didn't see a specific thread regarding them post what kind of music you play and what area of Texas you hail from. Me I'm from League City and I play old metal all the way to experimental.

02-03-2009, 12:50 AM
Dallas area *not in dallas but thats where i gig* and its some of the good ol thrash metal with some southern swagger.

good idea here.

02-03-2009, 01:35 AM
This seems kool. I'm in Austin, and really I like playing anything, although I'm probably biggest on hard rock.

02-19-2009, 10:20 PM
O im from Midland I play thrash metal but with more of a Pantera feel.O and im looking for a band to jam in im 15 but pretty good.

02-19-2009, 10:36 PM
Longview, and I play ... anything I like? I'd say metal, rock, metal punk, progressive rock. Me and my other Texan friend (He's orig from Wyoming, I think) came up with this


it's not finished yet. The vox have to be recorded, plus this is just a demo (check out the About Us page xD ). I actually didn't have a part in the recording, but I came up with a lot of the rhythm lines, and his dad's friend's band helped with the drums and bass and leads and stuff.

02-20-2009, 04:03 PM
I'm also in Dallas.

I like playing alt rock and classic rock.

02-20-2009, 04:49 PM

Texan guitarists UNITE! :headbang:

I recon if we all plug our guitars in at exactly the right second on the exact same day and all play the exact same notes all at once as loud as we possibly can.......nothing will happen :D

Wow, it seems Texas has a few thrash fans. I wish I could move to Texas instead of Louisiana.

You guys are lucky. The music scene in Louisiana is poser screamo/ metalcore.

10-27-2009, 03:09 PM
Houston; Guitarist/vocals, I like anything rock related but certain types of metal. I can't scream, so don't ask me to do that. Trying to get a band together, see my post.

11-20-2009, 04:00 PM
UTSA (San Antonio) Metal/Punk/Alt Rock/Electro Bassist. I'm well rounded :]

LOOKING FOR: LEAD guitarist that likes to play metal/hard rock. Similar to Metallica, and Pantera, ect. Good stuff.

11-21-2009, 12:05 AM
I live in Houston, play lead guitar, and enjoy playing pretty much all types of metal. My specialties are sweet crazy slightly-out-of-hand solos and being downright freaking awesome. I'm 17 with a slightly reliable mode of transportation (1990 Audi Coupe Quattro)

Seeking a band that will actually go somewhere, last band just sat around and jammed, didn't get crap done. Hit me up and we'll get something together.

I play stuff that sounds like what happens if you mix Lamb of God, Fear Factory, and DevilDriver together in the most unethical manner possible. Turns out pretty good. (have a few poorly recorded songs on my profile from like a year ago, and have only gone up from there)

/business like attempt to find a band

11-21-2009, 05:26 PM
I live in houston on the east side.

I play guitar and all types of metal if anyone need a guitarist or wants to start a band let me know.

11-22-2009, 08:54 PM
Im a metal guitarist looking for some heads to start a band with. Also play rock and other related genres. been playing for about 8 years. hit me up on UG or myspace. I have several complete songs and alot of bits and pieces. Currently in the Corpus Christi south texas area.

12-14-2009, 02:23 PM
I'm orginally from Flower Mound north of Fort Worth, but am currently a junior at Texas A&M in College Station. I play everything from Classic Rock to Blues mostly acoustic, but some electric.

12-24-2009, 04:18 AM
West Side of El Paso, playing guitar and been working on my screamed vocals.

I play progressive metalcore, and have a drummer buddy I'm starting a band with.

The scene here in El Paso is pretty gay, full of poser core, thrash wannabes, and people who belong in the late eighties. Maybe one or two good bands I've ever heard here.

Also hard to find good people to possibly form something with, they either can't play the instrument, are way too serious, or are just into stuff I hate.

12-24-2009, 04:46 PM
okay, its christmas eve, and its snowing all over texas. anyone else?

12-26-2009, 01:29 PM
