I'm looking to start a band that would sound something like the unholy bastard child of The Kinks, Blue Öyster Cult, Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Porcupine Tree, and Opeth. Obviously potential band members are allowed to bring their own influences, but I'm really not looking for a metal band, especially in the vein of In Flames or Children of Bodom, etc. My vision is of a heavy, sludgy, kinda bluesy sounding band, with maybe some pop sensibilities.

I'm not much of a lead guitar player so I'm looking for a drummer, bassist, lead guitarist, and singer. Should be in late teens to early 20s, but exceptions can be made. Should be a collaborative musician. Songwriting abilities is a plus.
