Hello, I am a dedicated metal musician looking to form and front a melodic/progressive metal band in Minnesota that has some real potential. I have many great ideas that I've been working on for years and I need some like-minded rock/metal musicians to work with to help me form these ideas into some good solid recorded songs, and also to contribute some ideas of your own as well. I am currently looking for a drummer, second guitarist (must be able to play both rhythm and lead), and a bass guitarist. I would also like to have at least one of the other members in the band to be like the screamer or secondary vocalist in the band if I could. Between the ages of 20-29 is preferred, but if need be I might be willing to go as young as 18 or 19 if you are real knowledgeable and well-practiced at your part. Please read my profile for more details. Then, if you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. I'm currently located in St. Paul btw.
You may respond here or e-mail me at krswanny@yahoo.com.

Thanks for readin! |,,/

Do you have any samples of your work?

There is an old track on my profile that I recorded all by myself back when I was 18. The sound quality is not great and my skills have improved since then but it will give you a basic idea of the kind of sound that I am shooting for here

Still looking for a bass player? I might be interested.

I'm 20 years old and have been playing bass for about 10 years.
I also have previous experience in a Progressive Rock band

I am living in Minneapolis as well

Hey man! Yeah, I probably will be in need of a bassist real soon. Unfortunatly, I am kind of too busy with some other shite right now though because I am going to be moving soon. But I'll just add you for right now and so maybe in a month or two we can meet up and hopefully get something going here. I also know of a drummer who might be interested too, but we'll see. Anyway thanks for respoinding man! I'll get back to ya.

Post a flyer around McNally Smith College of Music (Downtown St Paul), there's a lot of metal kids there.

Hey guys! I'm just here letting you know that, after a little break, this project of mine is now back in full swing! I am going to be fully moved into my new house next week and so I will now have my own jam space available, Finally! All that I need right now to really get things started is a drummer and a bass guitarist, the second guitarist can wait if it has to, and I can take care of the rest in the meantime. Pretty much all that I have stated above still applies. So please, if you or someone you know may be interested in joining this project, please let me know.

ThanX! |,,/

Anyone here in MN interested in a more acoustic setting? I can't find anyone with my same taste in music here.
