Singer / Frontman Wanted!

Cleveland area band Darkhorse is looking for a singer / frontman. We are an original, hard rock 5-piece looking for an aggressive singer who can put emotion behind their vocals and give an entertaining performance live. Having a good metal scream is a plus, but not required as we use screams as more of an accent than a staple. We practice once a week and are looking to play out a few times a month (mainly in the Cleveland area) once we have a full lineup again. Our practice space is in Fremont, OH and members live in Fremont, New London, Wellington, and Wakeman.

We are currently finishing work on a demo and press kit to send out to labels as well as other industry venues. That will be our first priority once we can get a new singer integrated with the band. We have over 15 original songs after getting rid of the ones that didn’t make the cut, and we’ve recorded 5 songs that we will narrow down to 3 for the demo. Darkhorse is committed to making a living out of creating and performing music, and we would expect the same commitment out of anyone joining us.

That being said, if it’s not fun you’re doing it wrong. We get a lot done at practice, but we also joke and laugh constantly. We’re a close group of guys and we love this band and what’s on the horizon for it.

Constructive criticism is strongly encouraged, so be prepared to take (and encouraged to give) some along the way. It almost always leads to an improvement in the song/show/band/whatever.

Band Influences: While among the band we like everything from Hinder and old Creed to All that Remains and Five Finger Death Punch, the following bands are who we are more closely modeled after, but with our own twist. Our aim is melodic vocal hooks with metal instrumentation that can keep your interest from start to end.

• Bullet for my Valentine • Godsmack
• Avenged Sevenfold • Ozzy Osbourne
• Metallica • Disturbed
