Hey everyone, I'm a metal guitarist looking to start a band here in Iowa, around Clive/ Urbandale is where I live, Hardcore metal or metalcore such as:

All that Remains
As I Lay Dying
August Burns Red
Bullet For My Valentine
Killswitch Engage
Parkway Drive

I've been looking for a band over myspace classifieds for awhile and it hasn't done me much good other than getting a few ALT rock band requests and a few death metal band requests and a few meetings with one guitarist or another and then no contact ever again, no matter how explicitly I request no alt rock or death metal bull**** it always comes up. Anyways..

I have stage experience and all my own equipment, I also have transportation,though I am not willing to travel much more than 25-30 minuets for practices due to gas money and such, I had a band fall apart because everyone hated driving really far so I would like to avoid that.

I am 18 so I would like to have people within my age group no older than 22 if possible, I am a moderately good singer and an excellent screamer I will do vocals happily if need be.

I can use my garage as a practice area during the summer/spring, but during the winter it would be a no go unless you enjoy freezing your ass off.

I would like to have a 2nd guitarist, a drummer, a bassist, and a vocalist (I can be that if need be) if possible.

Thanks everyone
