Looking for musicians [especially a DRUMMER] to start a prog metal band/project
[Update : the bass player position is filled]
Hi ! I'm Nicolas and I've been working a few years in solo to record my own material. While working solo gives you total creative control, it's also a tremendous amount of work and so I'm looking for like-minded musicians to create something new together.
-The sound : -Sonic elements : I like the sound of extended range guitars (7 strings), so that's something to take into account for guitar / bass players (downtuning is also fine). For drums, I'm not looking for big blast beats at 240 bpm, but a double-bass pedal would be nice to go with some riffs. I also want to have vocals (clean for sure, but a mix of clean and heavy is great too). -Songwriting : let's not start right away with a 70 minutes concept album about some obscure philosophical/quantum physics idea. I love long epics, but I think there is also value in writing shorter / effective songs (especially as a starting band). While I definitely want to gravitate around solid riffs, I would like to have some dynamics within songs (alternating heavy and light passages) use different styles (jazz, classical, electro,...) -Complexity : it has to be intellectually challenging to play and listen to. At the same time I want to avoid falling into complete nerdery and still make music that is not just for other musicians (plus, I'm not Tosin Abasi). It has to tell a story, or convey strong emotions (the latter is why I would like to have vocals).
In this playlist are examples of songs that I think fit this description :
Utlimately record original material that we can be proud of and stand behind and if possible, play it live (a few gigs a year).
-Who I am :
As a mostly solo musician I have learned many instruments and skills : bass, guitar, keys, vocals, mixing and recording, so I can pick a role that fits the needs of the band, keep an overview of composition and overall sound. On the other hand, I'm not a highly technical player. To give you an idea of what I can / like to do :
I am based around Almere / Amsterdam
-Who I'm looking for :
Other musicians with a similar vision and similar tastes, who are serious about music and want to create something interesting for themselves and for others. At this point, any instrument is possible although the priority would be to find a drummer as this is the only thing I can't do myself and the drumkit is usually the biggest factor in the logistics.
I do not require you to know every bit of music theory (I myself still have a lot to learn), but I think knowing some basics is essential to communicate between musicians (basically being comfortable with 4-note chords and odd time signatures). Being able to read and transcribe is also a plus.
