I absolutely hate this question, and as band leader, I'm ALWAYS the one who has to answer it. And you have no idea how hard it is with our band. I always say we're a progressive metal band, because that's what we sound like. 9/10 people look at me confused, so I just tell them who each individual member sounds like. Does anyone else have this problem? It's really annoying when you don't fit any specific category.

I've done that before. Then they stare at you like 'wtf'?

but yeah, I hate that question. My band plays and writes hard piano rock, progressive/alternativish/psychedelic stuff a la pink floyd, and some occasional hard shredding stuff with screams.

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?


I met Sonic Youth on June 30th, and Mars Volta on Oct 20th.

Me: Progressive Metal

Some black guy: DO YOU SCREAM?

Me: Yeah

Some black guy: THAT ****S EMO...

I also like the what instrument conversation with girls

Girls:What instrument do you play

Me: Bass...

Girls: WTF IS THAT?

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.

**** Categorization into regular genres
I take pride in calling myself Psychadelic Garage thrash
people get interested and now they have to go find out what it sounds like
If you categorize yourself as something simple- than people don't give a ****.
