Hello Internet People!

Major influences are Avenged Sevenfold, Rush, Symphony X, System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine, Stone Sour, Pantera, Alter Bridge, Dream Theatre, Muse, Black Sabbath, Machine Head, Lamb of God, Mastodon. I'm flexible, and willing to explore different sounds and styles with highly variable degrees of heaviness and 'melodic-ness.'

I have a tendency to prefer quite a progressive style, but simple and brutal is great too. Lyrically, I'd like to explore themes of mythology such as Hellenic/Ancient Greek and Norse, and also something based on the writings of H.P Lovecraft. But once again, my mind's open to any ideas although I tend towards the dark and gothic. Anything from indulgently pretentious to a sweat-soaked mosh-down sits well with me, but preferably the one melds with the other.

I'm an intuitive player, which is code for having mediocre musical theory, but I improvise well and am basically just itching to jam and see if I can build something from there.

So yeah, Nottingham people. Or anyone nearby. Any takers?
