Hey guys, I'm a metal guitarist who needs a progressive band to play with. To give you an idea of the music I like to play, I take Between the Buried and Me, Dream Theater, Necrophagist, really any metal band that focuses heavily on instrumentals. I like crazy time signatures and complex riffs and stuff like that. Lots of diminished stuff, but I also want nice clean passages and smooth vocals as well. I really like melodic metal as well. I do metalcore as well, like Bullet For My Valentine, etc. I really can't emphasize enough how heavily I focus on instrumentals. Dream Theater and Between the Buried and Me are really what I'm going for. I like screaming and singing in my songs (I don't sing I'm just saying either is ok.) Ask any questions you want, thanks.
