SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums.
My name is Ilia (Elijah). I am a musician, guitarist (classical and electric guitar), composer, sound engineer based in Eastern Europe, in Belarus (Russian), not from Canada. Sorry for the misinformation on my profile.
Looking for musicians to try online collaboration (to start). Don't think that in the 21st century there may be problems in colab at a distance.
I write and record music, songs (including lyrics), make arrangements, mixing and mastering, programming. I have a home studio and a huge amount of stuff, both recorded and not, in different styles and even genres. There is also a second project where I work as a composer, writing excellent professional symphonic cinematic arrangements, from which I take skills and ideas that I then bring to rock, metal music.
Guitar playing experience - 19 years, recording and mixing experience - over 10 years. I have touring experience.
To get a rough idea of the direction I would like to work in, listen to track 1 and 2 on the list.
The newest material has not yet been recorded, but now I have my own style, unlike anything else.
The concept of my musical creativity is a combination of groove, heaviness, harmony/emotion, atmosphere and lyrics based on philosophical, social and personal themes.
At the moment I'm looking primarily for a vocalist, as well as a drummer and bassist. Only serious and experienced guys.
A drummer who can play (and possibly record) parts better than I can program)), and who understands what a groove is and that drums are also a tonal instrument.
I would like to push the bass guitar forward, give more space and attention to this extremely underestimated instrument in modern metal music, which sounds even more metal than a heavy guitar. Therefore, I am looking for a 5-6 string bass guitar player with slap technique who will actually be the second guitarist and will also have lead parts. Good examples of this are Sam Rivers (Limp Bizkit), Ryan Martinie (Mudvayne) and of course Cliff Burton.
I don't want to move to other countries, but I can, if we get something serious, and in that case I would even prefer to invite musicians to my country.
I'm looking for musicians in the US, Canada and the UK because there is a developed music industry and more business minded musicians, and without problems with the Russian accent of the vocalists and no difficulty in writing lyrics in English.
If you are interested in collaborating, feel free to let me know!
