Hey everyone! I’m looking to start a new project that combines the melodic parts of European metal with the rhythmic elements of American hard rock and metal, and lyrics that are actually well thought out and mean something.

The key elements of the sound I’d like to create are vocal harmony, technical but still catchy guitar riffs, and melody flowing throughout the music. How this is accomplished is very much open to interpretation, but that is the basic idea I would like to start from.
I have a vast array of lyrics written, and while I have musical ideas for every song I often times need help getting them from my head to my guitar. As you may have guessed from seeing Skillet, Disciple, and philosophy in the headline, I am a Christian, and that does make its way into my lyrics, but I am not someone who just wants to rewrite Jesus Loves Me for the millionth time. There’s too many bands doing that already and we have better things to do with our time.
Vocal style wise, I tend to lean more towards clean vocals, but whatever style fits the song is what the song will get, so there’s plenty of room for diversity there.
As far as what I do and what I’m looking for, I sing, play guitar and bass, and do a lot of writing. I have another guitar player on board for sure, and a drummer who’s interested but currently too busy to participate. As of now, we’re needing at least one more guitar/bass player, a keyboardist (maybe more than one), possibly a couple people to play strings, and all the backing vocals we can get. But to be perfectly honest, if you’re interested in the band I would like to hear from you regardless of what instruments you play! (and just to be absolutely clear, anyone who’s in the band will be more than welcome to be a part of song writing)
If you’re interested in hearing anything, I have a few tracks I can send you, and a fair amount of lyrics you could look at if you’re interested in what I’m doing there. I would also love to hear any ideas you have or songs you’re working on, so feel free to send those over as well! One thing I should mention is that we are currently located in St. Cloud, but once we have the line up filled out we'll be finding a practice space that works for everyone. If you’re interested, feel from to shoot me an email or a text, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. I look forward to hearing from you!
And here’s a list of influences just for the heck of it!
