    I play in Grind Method

    We play around 2-3 times a month, been gigging for maybe 7 months. We are on a nice upward trajectory locally at the moment so it's alot of fun. Lots of Hard Rock/Metal covers and a few originals.

    I am the old lead guitarist/new vocalist for From the Depths. I am in the same band as "Tones" on here. Link to our page below. We took a big break from shows to write more music for an album, make some lineup changes, and just breathe. We're starting again at the end of the month and are probably gonna be booking a ton of shows. I am also going in to record vocals today for one of our new songs for the album

    I play the guitar in this folk/melodic metal band called Athellagon since late 2011, and we finally played our first gig a couple of days ago, at the funeral of our local metal bar Keikkamesta.

    Unfortunately our vocalist lost her voice completely the day before, so we were forced to play instrumentally, but since our playtime was only around 15-20 minutes, we decided to do it anyway.

    We didn't use our own gear (other than the keyboards) due to the tight schedule - something like 20 bands in 8 hours or so - so I missed the pedal a few times when changing from clean to distortion, but other than that I think it went really well. You can tell we were a bit nervous though, we played the second song at something like 300bpm (600bpm if you count the fact that the "verse" is played in doubletime :D ). What do you guys think?



    ... And here's what we sound like on record:

    My band short lives gigs every two or three weeks. We are like Defeater or Xerxes if you have ever heard of them.

    Played a festival yesterday, our 5th or 6th gig in the past 5 weeks, it was the Bognor Rox Festival, a biiig three or four stage deal, Rox is a registered charity giving people opportunities to play music in the community, and they do a lot of fundraising gigs and supporting unsigned bands they like, we had a great turn-out, many of those there in bands I really like, and it was an honour to play it for a second year in a row.

    I'm not gigging at the moment, but man, I'm trying like hell. Seems like every band I'm in ends up breaking up as soon as we get around to playing a few live shows.

    I'm in a gigging band, but trying to get better gigs...the gigs around here don't offer much of anything unfortunately! The demographic is NOT into 80% scream 20% sing, so...

    We're in similar situation - haven't even named it yet but we have selected all the right players - finally! All of us are currently gigging in other bands, and spending the time to get this final one to be the ultimate experience. But for now we're going through that long drawn out process and its frustrating at times. Thankfully we are all gigging with other bands too....

    My band Hexogen just played our second gig tonight. Went pretty well and got a good response from the crowd. Don't have another one booked until mid-March but hopefully something else will happen before then.

    Got any links? We're based out of Sudbury, MA.
