    Deathsmadrigal and I are in Fenrismaw Fenrismaw on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads. We've been getting more and more gigs and put out an EP. From this month into May we're playing out every weekend. We're going to be opening for Warbringer, Operatica, Wretched, and Rose Funeral and for some of the gigs we've been moved from first act to 2nd (woot!).

    I play in a band called Victim. We've been together since 91' when I joined my senior year of high school almost 20 years ago. Man, where has the time gone? We are an original hard rock band but also have a cover set we can do so we can play at different venues other than just hard rock clubs. We play out 2-3 times a month. We have a show at The Hawgs of Texas bike rally next weekend opening up for Three Dog Night. Woohoo! I think we'll close our set with some Drowning Pool to lead into them. Ha!

    You can check out our original stuff at: www.myspace.com/victimrocks

    I play bass in a few bands, one with Sora01 from this here boards called Entrosolet (myspace.com/entrosolet), not quite ready to gig yet though. Darren's mean and keeps giving me stuff that's really hard to play! :p

    Also play in a band called Element106 (myspace.com/e106) that has been around in various incarnations for about 10 years but this lineup has been on the go for 2.5years.

    An offshoot of that is called Cyclops with the lead guitarist on Drums, Rhythm Guitarist doing guitars and Vocals, I'm still on bass and another guy's in for Lead Guitar.

    Also play guitar in a 3 piece industrial band with a female vocalist and a synth player.

    Neither of the last two bands really practice very often so I don't think they really count.

    I play in The Curse Of Hail (link in sig), and we usually play out once a month. We used to play a lot of local shows but have since only done National and a few bigger local shows. We are busy recording some tunes, then playing a few more shows, and hopefully tour/record this summer.

    ABYSMAL FATE is out of redwood city California, we specialize in a hybrid of metal styles resulting in creative and original music. We have been playing locally for about 6 months now and building a good following. Next step is a good sounding demo or full CD.

    Nice to see some familiar names on the list.
    I play guitar in Monstrosity, the Florida death metal legends. :cool:
    Also, Chaos Inception and Quinta Essentia and Temple of Blood, all 3 with CDs and based out of Huntsville, Alabama. I'm also jamming with Thom Mathews who is a sick shredder and has a few CDs out and has a couple endorsements.
    I would also consider myself the guitar and amp tech for all those bands as you won't find them on any of the forums and they're all pretty much noobs when it comes to taking care of and tweaking their gear.:nono:
    Touring can suck but it's great to play bigger shows to appreciative fans. It's quite a contrast to go from co-headlining an open air fest in Mexico City for 2000 people (with Monstrosity) to a week later playing at a dive in Florence, Alabama with about 20 people (with Chaos Inception).

    ...I don't see much non-metal on SS.org...NOT that I have a problem with that.

    I currently play in Bob Gnarley And The Gnailers, a hard rock/funk/idunnowat? 5 piece out of San Antonio.

    Most of us came from early local speed/thrash/hardcore bands from back in the 80's and 90's (yes, I am fyscking old).

    Current gig is a lot of fun, we started out with two bassists (I played octaves up or down from the main bassist, played high leads, non unison counterpoint bits, even funk guitar type lines above his steady rhythm. Short story he bailed, we added a second guitar, and started getting heavier. We'll never be djent heavy (that's at home on the Mac, with my RG2228) but we've got some heavy stuff...somewhere along the lines of FNM or Black Sabbath.

    You can find some demos (couple of years old, due to lineup changes, what a surprise) out on Myspace and on Soundcloud.

    I'm currently only gigging with Lithuria (check the sig), but i'm dying to get this other band off the gound too. We've got some songs, but not enough yet to play a full set...

    Have a band, would love to be gigging, but our "singer" (term used loosely) is having serious timing issues and the new bassist we have is so green that he's having a problem learning simple stuff like Judas Priest :-/

    I'm in a cover band. But hey, I'm old, 41. Back in the day (late 80's early 90's) it was hard to record, and you could make a decent buck in a cover band. These days we play to an older crown, mainly hmmmmm private parties for lack of a better term I guess.

    We play everything from country to classic and newer rock, depending on the crowd. I'm by no means a country guy, but I can follow along with the best of them. It's fun, and I enjoy playing. $200/man/gig works for me.


    ;)
