No picture exists. Our logo was a lame rip off of a Pentacle. We were called Shards of Dark, then The Divide, and then just Divide.

We played once a week for an hour or so in a barn. We played stuff like Godsmack and Creed. Don't judge me, it was peer pressure. Plus i had no taste.

Man I don't have any pictures or logos or anything, but my first band was Stonemason. I played bass and we played one gig. We covered Mr. Crowley for a battle of the bands and didn't win. XD

The first band I was with was called Vehement, which eventually became a band called Lithium when we joined up with some people from Montgomery. Vehement was barely a band though, rehearsals usually wound up with me sitting in the garage rocking out at maximum volume while the vocalist and other guitarist would have wrestling matches outside.

Here's one of our earliest pics....



Here's a later promo pic after the members of Vehement left....before we found a drummer.

My Current Mains
- 1996 Fender Jag-Stang with EMG Pickups
- 1998 Fender Jaguar with Cool Rails
- 1982 Hondo Paul Dean II (DiMarzio Super II X2)
- 2010 "Fender" Jazzmaster (Home built)
- 2013 Squier VM Bass VI (stock)

my first band was called transonic, no pic exists, i played bass. band practice usually consisted of ordering and eating pizza, thinking of better band names, and pretty much everything teenagers typically do besides actualy writing music and practicing.

band practice sounded fun, kinda like my first band.

My first band was called Shazzizle 52 (had to be a pop punk name like Blink 182 or Sum 41). We wrote one crappy song, then we just hung out and changed band names a lot, before firing everyone but myself and the drummer and we still play together today....and have still gotten no where.

I was in a band for about 3 weeks and I jammed like 4 times but I was way too busy and had to quit. No one wants to jam with me.

I would, if I weren't so terribly embarassed of the band's current existence.

'The Common Unusual'. We were a bizarre alternative band for a little while. I'm all the way on the right. This was probably summer 2006 at the latest...
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.

Psicosis. We played covers of mainly this band:

I was the old bastard of the band. The drummer was too damn young, 13 years old. The rest were 15, and 16. I was 20 at the time. Still had a really great time, and an epic gig. They were funny kids.

Well heres the thing, it's quite obviously John Lennon, and Pauls face is obscured by a mic and i don't know what George looks like from memory, so it could quite easily be them to me.

Oh heaven forbid I can't recognise a band as well you guys can, such a travesty.

I don't have any pictures, but my first band (which split up about 4 months ago and I'm not in anotherone yet) was originally called The Iron Cheese (before we got serious about it) then The Fifth Ace (until we realized how cliched and faggish that was) and finally Infinite Zero for about the last 5 months of its existence.

We wrote about a million songs, recorded the 3 best ones (out of seven that were any good), and played 2 gigs, where we played 2 of our songs and a cover of Hysteria by Muse.

We started out playing really simple 3-chord rock, but we ended up as a decently technical metalcore band. We had a lot of fun with it, and the only reason we split up is because I started college this year and the rest of the members are still in high school. I was the founder and unofficial manager, and after I left the band just fell apart. I'm still hoping I can get back with one of the guitarists eventually and start another group.

And not the large amount of facepalm's and capital letters?

I realise it's not all of The Beatles, but like I said, I don't know Georges face from memory, so he could have been shooped and Ringo left as he was.
