You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

I was in a noisecore band but I don't really see the other people in the band much any more because all they do is stay in and get stoned. Apparently we have a gig but I'm probably not in the band anymore.

I may eventually start another band with the lead singer because he doesn't hang out with the other guys either, he is a gangsta rapper now but still loves grindcore and stuff. He's always getting arrested now though so I think he might have a curfew.
#7
Not anymore. I was, and would still be, but I'm going to a college that's 3 and a half hours away from the other members. Have yet to find a band here too.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

My band was actually getting quite decent and really in the groove of playing, then I got a leg injury and couldn't go to the practices.

The band has now fallen apart.

I'm gonna be starting a new one soon though.

No, because most of the people who play music around here are either emo/scene or are complete druggies. There are probably plenty who don't, but even then it would be hard to find people with similar musical taste to me. Add the fact that I suck at guitar for now, and I can't see myself in a band until college or so.
#16
Well, i'm working on my hardcore/post-hardcore band...
It should be up and running, doing gigs and all by the end of summer...
I'm the vocalist and the guitarist.... Well for most hardcore songs i only do vocals...

I am in a hard rock band and a ska band, i have been in a one off country band and a one off country band before too. oh yeah and an acoustic band that was dumb.
A band of my very own:

i'm in one, but i might quit since our drummer's a homo. the bassist is my best friend, so we'll probably stick together always. if my bassist and i had our way, our band would probably be kind of like metalcore minus the screaming, but my solos are bluesy, and our songs are a bunch of different styles. it's turning into a "Z0MGZ WE R PWN DR3AM THE4T3R" crap metalish band that's really boring and stupid sounding, with lots of keyboard breaks that sound the same and suck. i could go on for a really long time about our drummer, but i won't.

So we decided since all we did was play Mortal Kombat and watched Power Rangers, we could defend ourselves, so we went and grabbed a bunch of crap to bombard the thing with.
#27
No, but i've been in 2 bands. I'm still looking for some more bandmates.

Man, I feel like Chuck Schuldiner...except without the talent
#28
the crazy thing with me is either i smoke the band i wanna jam with guitarists head, or the guy i wanna learn from smokes mine. It was kinda cool, because i went to jam with this really good guy. He starts on Master of Puppets, so im like "Gimme axe please!" so i start to play, which i can usually do MOP at about....89% speed perfectly...but i hit my matrix mode (stories on that later) and did it full speed. Then, the guy was like "You know more of it than i do, that was pretty sweet"

I almost creamed myslef.

Not in a band, well... sort of.

I have a solo electronica project, and when my friend gets done with Air Guard basic training he'll probably be joining me. I don't think I'd enjoy being in a normal "rock band" type of band.
#30
no, i can't seem to find any other metalheads, it seems everybody here is into punk.

I'm in a band that plays mostly extreme ends of the music spectrum, but I also have an acoustic solo thing I do for fun. I hate when musicians get close-minded about music

Yep. A funk-oriented jamband.
