Hey all, I’m in a Toronto-based metal band called Soul Sanctum, consisting of a vocalist, guitarist, drummer and bassist (myself), and we are currently in the market for a second guitar player.
Our sound is in the vein of traditional metal (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Saxon) and thrash metal (Metallica, Megadeth, Testament). That's the base of our sound, but we are also very influenced by bands such as Rush and Toto. We also want to incorporate elements from other musical styles to have diversity in our sound, and to hopefully create something that hasn’t been done often or at all in metal before. Even though we are all metalheads, we're really just music fans at the end of the day.
This band hasn't done any gigs yet, but we all have live experience under our belt with our other past and current bands. We don't have any pro recordings of songs yet, but we are currently in the process of writing material, with the goal of heading into the studio to record an EP, and start gigging locally when it becomes safe to do so.
Candidates should be proficient at both rhythm and lead playing, and must be proficient at playing fast for shreddy parts, mid-tempo for catchy parts, and slow for soulful parts.
We are all very easy to get along with, and we are all jokers, but we take our mission and craft very seriously. We are looking for someone who is dedicated, passionate, driven, has an overall great personality (no ego), shares the same musical influences as us and common vision of taking the band beyond just rehearsing and jamming.
As far as age goes, we're all in our 20s, so we prefer someone who is around the same age (early 20s to early 30s)
If this sounds like you, please send me an email or message me on Facebook or Instagram, and I will send you some rough recordings from rehearsal so you can get a feel for our sound. We also have weekly band chats on Zoom and/or Messenger. If you would like to join us for a chat so we can get to know you before we set foot in the rehearsal room together, please let me know and we will set up a band video chat.
