Hey everyone. I know it's a short time after my previous thread but I've got something stuck up my ass and I want to get it out. My bandmates never do what I tell them to do. First off, we have a "screamer" who doesnt play an instrument, who they claim is the "lead vocalist". I find this to be bullshit, considering I was doing all the singing and screaming before he even came in the band, and also considering I only let him do screams live during choruses as backing vocals.

I want us to be musically diverse, but my bandmates just want to play straight metal and be like every other band. We can't be diverse because my rhythm guitarist just writes metal riffs. When I suggested we close our setlist with an acoustic song, they all just gave me the shit look and shook their heads. They've also rejected at least 5 of my song ideas for being "too soft". The drummer gets all pissy with me because he doesn't want to use the ideas for drum parts that I came up with. They also rejected my idea to use a headset mic for preformances so I can jump around and headbang while I sing.

Also at the show, the screamer kept trying to stand in front of me, and the drummer got all pissy with me again saying "He's the frontman dude, let him be in front" and so I had to stand in the back with the guitarist even though i'm lead vocals.

I need some advice I guess, to whip my bandmates into shape and get them to do what I tell them to do. They nearly broke up before I joined the band and took control and got them out of a depression, and I refuse to let us sink that low again. Any suggestions??

it doesn't matter if you're ACTUALLY right or wrong. If everybody but you agree on something, you're wrong.

But it seems like you deserve a little bit of being put back in your place so see it as a learning experience
#8
You probably just aren't asserting yourself as the dominant alpha male of the band. I'd recommend just shoving your dick up every one of them.

But seriously, it sounds like you're more of a problem to the band then they are to you. If you can't be open minded with them, then just move on.

Get over yourself. It isn't YOUR band.


First off, we have a "screamer" who doesnt play an instrument


Vocals are an instrument....


=
who they claim is the "lead vocalist". I find this to be bullshit, considering I was doing all the singing and screaming before he even came in the band, and also considering I only let him do screams live during choruses as backing vocals.


Tough. He's as much a part of the band as you are.


I want us to be musically diverse, but my bandmates just want to play straight metal and be like every other band.


Leave if you don't like it. Majority rules.


We can't be diverse because my rhythm guitarist just writes metal riffs.


Thats what metal guitarists do.


When I suggested we close our setlist with an acoustic song


Thats just incredibly dumb. The last song is when all hell breaks loose.


they all just gave me the shit look and shook their heads.


They were polite. I would have told you to fook off if you were in my band.


They've also rejected at least 5 of my song ideas for being "too soft".


No shit?!?! They want a METAL band. If you don't like it, then leave.


The drummer gets all pissy with me because he doesn't want to use the ideas for drum parts that I came up with.


You play your instrument and he'll play his. Stop being a dictator.


They also rejected my idea to use a headset mic for preformances so I can jump around and headbang while I sing.


That is dumb. lol. no wonder they rejected it.


Also at the show, the screamer kept trying to stand in front of me, and the drummer got all pissy with me again saying "He's the frontman dude, let him be in front" and so I had to stand in the back with the guitarist even though i'm lead vocals.


He is the front man. But man up and have stage presence. Move around and have fun. I can imagine you standing there crying because they damaged your inflated ego.


I need some advice I guess,


Leave the band if you aren't happy.


to whip my bandmates into shape and get them to do what I tell them to do.



You're an idiot. You're all a part of it. Stop trying to be a dictator.


They nearly broke up before I joined the band and took control and got them out of a depression,


lol. get over yourself.


and I refuse to let us sink that low again.



it's ironic how you use "us"


Any suggestions??



lose the ego. stop being a nob. get over yourself. Learn to compromise or leave the band.


Its very rare that I make a reply on here that takes more than 20 seconds, but bloody hell, your attitude has pissed me off.

Seriously.

This is what you do. I'm assuming you're writing most of the material. Quit the band. Write your own stuff. Find people who want to play YOUR music. Done.

But I kinda feel like it's all about me, I mean when I first started in the band they like worshipped me, and treated me like a god. I took it upon myself to become the leader of the band and bring my music to wide audiences. but now they're all disobedient and it sort of pisses me off to no end. Recently I actually got so pissed during a practice because nobody wanted to do anything, I had to pull the drummer into the kitchen and cuss him out in order to get him to do as I told him. So actually they are being really shitty to me if you consider all I've done for them

can we just ban this guy and have a nice day?

holy hell kid. How old are you? Twelve, right? You must be twelve.

There is no such thing as a band that does everything one guy tells them what to do. Get that retarded thought out of your silly twelve year old mind.

Unfortunately, this. You remind me of myself when I was 16 - young, stupid and ****ing arrogant. Take a deep breath, a step back, then survey the situation. You might find that you're actually more of a problem than the others by the looks of it.

Also, some of your ideas are really, really flawed. I mean... you want to hear a headset mic so you can headbang onstage? SERIOUSLY?

I'm being serious guys. I knew an online community filled with musicians would be a fantastic place to vent my problems on, so I registered an account. I'll give the guys in my band a good talk, and keep you posted on what happens.

I hope someone in your band sees this thread, talks to the other guys, and they kick you out. It'll fuel you to make something on your own.

you're wrong. on both.

go away for a while, when you come back don't be a ****wit and post in maybe musicians talk or bandleading


And don't give your band a good talk, they will kick you out. you're not awesome, you're just a member of the band that needs to check his privilege

You got some people to actually take you serious.

In all honesty though, this actually sounds a little like me, lol. I'm a dictator at heart, but I still love hearing everyone else's idea and I don't shut them down until they have a chance to flesh out and prove not to be good ideas.

Lol, you say we as if you'll still be in the band.

Ok, I'll play your game, troll.

You're bullshitting about going into the studio in a month. No band would have as many problems as you say you're having and be going into a studio in 4 weeks. What, do you expect to fix everything by then? Or better yet, do you think you'll sort things out in studio?
