Me and my friends are just starting up a Power/Progressive Metal band in Northern Colorado (I'm located in Boulder, the other folks in Greeley). I have almost 9 years of guitar experience (on and off for a couple of years, but I'm definitely not new to playing guitar). We still are kind of trying to figure out what all we want to do with it, but it definitely is going to start with simply practicing and getting a tight sound as a band. Our influences include (but are definitely not limited to): Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Manowar, Rhapsody of Fire, Dio, Black Sabbath, etc. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, let me know.
