The time has come! After nearly 2 years of searching for worthy musicians, our current project is finally ready for a qualified singer. This project has been in the works for quite a while, taking time to find the right people for each spot. We have an established core of 2 guitarists, a drummer, and a bassist. We have several originals as well as 3-4 covers (just in case), and are ready to gig when everything is set up.
We've auditioned several singers, but none have quite landed where we would like. The 4 of us have a nicely established relationship, we're all super friendly, and we're all on the same page musically. Speaking of influences, here are some of ours:
Protest the Hero
Veil of Maya
The Human Abstract
Between the Buried and Me
The covers we play are:
"Mist" by Protest the Hero
"Mikasa" by Veil of Maya
"Remenissions" by Avenged Sevenfold
"My Curse" by Killswitch Engage
All covers are played 1 full step down tuned from standard guitar pitch. This means "Mist" is a half step lower than recorded. "My Curse" is played the same as recorded. "Remenissions" is a full step down. "Mikasa" is a half step up from the recording.
If you can sing these songs, you're pretty much automatically qualified. If you can sing your own, musically talented version of these songs, you'll be considered. We really need someone with a wide vocal ability in order to convey our ideas accurately.
We have a dedicated rehearsal spot in Jersey City and Clifton that's free to use, complete with all the equipment needed. This is essentially a step in and go situation where we need someone who can learn these songs, write their own vocals for the originals, and be ready for gigs when the time comes. This project has always been about making the best music possible and seeing where it goes. We'll be looking to meet at least once, hopefully twice, per week, usually Tuesday and Thursday.
If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, or you'd like to find out more, please contact me directly at 551-333-905three. Please, serious inquiries only, we don't want to waste your time, please don't waste ours. We practice every Monday in Jersey City, you're welcome to join any time you're ready.
This is your chance to shine. We're starting this with you in mind, because we all want to rock out as hard as possible. We just need the last piece of the puzzle. Recordings, links, etc, are available on request. This stuff is still new and unreleased, we don't want to start posting it yet. The covers really just give us a chance to meet up on the same ground and have something to play as a sort of metric of technical ability. If you show up and can play the music, it shows your commitment. We are in no way whatsoever a cover band, so don't get caught up in that. We need to see a level of skill in your singing. This will give us that.
Good luck! And the sooner you contact us, the sooner we'll be playing shows!
