    I just saw Oceano play last night! dude join their band, whether or not youll grow musically is one thing, but they have a lot of fun onstage, and their shows are brutal as hell.

    I mean, in the end its up to you but if i were you i would go for it.

    Well here's what I think.

    I have been in a similar situation to yours.
    Before I created my band (Touch of God) which is progressive/metal (we are still struggling :) ) I was invited to a band that was pop rock and this band was already playing in many venues and had a record deal and what not. I accepted their invitation to get some gig experience and studio work and what not and after 2 weeks of recording,rehearsing and all that I was feeling something was missing.I felt that what I was helping to create wasn't my musical taste or direction.I was doing it because I was asked to and I was getting really depressed everytime I suggested something it was completely disregarded and ignored because it wasn't the musical direction of the band.
    So I ended up quitting and didn't even get to playing live with them and looking back I am glad I didn't because I wasn't going to show any energy whatsoever or transmit any sympathy to the audience with what I was playing.
    After I quit I started my own band and even though we struggle a whole lot more and don't have any record deals and just the occasional summer gig, I feel a whole lot happier and glad of what I create and what I play.

    So my advice to you is maybe you should continue to courteously say no to them and think of your music direction and chose a band that is on the same wave length that you are.
    I am not saying start a band since that is very hard to do (although you can try) but what I am saying is don't sell out because that is what's wrong with the music business today.
    We are seven string guitar players we are different and so even in this we have to be different and stick to our beliefs and tastes ;)

    Hope I helped. Rock ON :hbang:

    Hence the whole Uno incident? lol

    But I'm glad you decided to tour with Oceano. Honestly they're not my cup of tea, at all, but if I got the opportunity to play with a band as serious as them I'd do it in a heartbeat.

    Please make Oceano's music interesting. They need technical riffs, not breakdowns.

    Dude, I'm not even into deathcore, but I like Oceano...I say do it!! Especially if they're open to letting you contribute riffs and whatnot...keep us posted!
