Band to Join, Bass Guitar, Keyboard, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Vocalist.

ABOUT

My approach to music is an intelligent, analytical but also slightly random improvisational approach to heavy, epic, and well-defined original music with interesting chord changes. I like trying to mix rhythm and lead with open string parts into my riffs. I try to do what works for the sound I'm searching for. My biggest strength is harmony and creating chord progressions. Most of all, I want to make something where I and everyone else in the band brings their own identity and character into the songs we make. I don't like trying to imitate bands whose sound has already been taken.

Influences

In terms of metal, I am very influenced by the band Periphery. I love the soaring vocals with epic progressions and heavy guitar parts. Other metal bands I love include Animals As Leaders, Thornhill, Monuments, and Spirit Box. I have recently really been getting into Sleep Token as well. I also listen to jazz; my favorite jazz artists are Charles Mingus and Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and Roy Hargrove.

EQUIPMENT

My favorite guitar is my semi-hollow Ibanez. I also have a 7-string Schecter, and a unique 6-string Samick, which I've used more than I thought I would. I am currently using a small practice amp with a Korg Pandora amp box for overdriven and distorted tones. I also use NeuralDSP's amp sims. I sometimes use FL Studio and used to use Bias FX. I would really like to get more equipment, such as Misha's guitar pedal for djent, a Fortin volume boost, an 8-string, some reverb and/or delay pedal, and possibly some high-end analog pedal for lo-fi jazz stuff because I'm also a big fan of shoegaze and Deftones, although I am not really chasing that style currently.
