    Just joined an often atmospheric, sometimes proggy, occasionally symphonic metal band w/ female vocals, called Dotma, wich has just released their debut. Did my first 3 shows with them last weekend and had a blast! Check out the link in my sig! :hbang:

    I'm in a band called Crossed Chaos | Free Music, Tour Dates, Photos, Videos, we're a bunch a big mixing pot of different types of metal, but we love diversity and such. We live on a tiny island with a tiny metal scene so we aren't very big at all, just local for now, but what can you expect. We plan to record an EP sometime in the next month or so.

    I checked out Division and you guys are awesome, really unique, great singing!

    Was in a couple bands in highschool that went nowhere, it was like pop punk with a shitton of distortion :\ it was called the "Unchained". Hated it but I wanted to play live.

    Now saving up for some better equipment since i had to sell my good gear and am stuck with only one guitar. Though I don't know if i'll join a band as a vocalist or a guitar player cause people really like my vox

    I'm in a progressive deathcore band as the rhythm guitarist that's playing its first show tomorrow. This should be interesting.

    I played a few shows as the drummer of a band earlier this year, but we had a problem where we found out our lead guitarist was plagiarizing riffs from well-known bands pretty much note-for-note and when we confronted him about it and his tendency to try to control the band by himself, he decided to single-handedly "disband" us, basically proving our point.

    Now that we've got a new bassist and the singer's come out of his shell, we'll hopefully be playing out soon. I'm not going to count open mic "gigs" as real gigs....more like practicing in public.

    We're doing all covers at the moment and playing to the 35-45 demographic mainly due to the material we're covering (late 70s - early 90s hard rock/heavy metal).
