Looking for members for a Symphonic Metal project

Recommended Posts

Looking for players from Europe for a symphonic metal project with a potential to become a band.
 
First and foremost in the beginning stages there will be an online communication between the interested parties until the logistics and finances allow for us to continue from a physical location, which will be discussed by all members on how to proceed further.
 
Goal of the project is to create the first album from the symphonic metal genre similar to bands like but not limited to -(Angra, Avantasia, Dark Moor, Derdian, Dragonland, Epica, Kamelot,Nightwish,Pathfinder,Phoenix Rising,Sonata Arctica, Solar Crown Serenity,Theocracy, Twilight Force,Versailles etc)
 
Of course with something unique and original not just a copy/paste process in which each member should provide their musical ideas while making the songs.
 
What is needed?
Short answer: Everything.
 
Long answer:
 
Drummer (Able to play double bass, willing to learn new techniques if beginner or intermediate)
 
Keyboards (Provides the essential sounds and able to create symphonic backing tracks for the enrichment of the sound) 
 
Rhythm guitar (Provides those heavy riffs and creating an amazing headbanging experience)
 
Rhythm/lead (I will be playing this part supporting the Rhythm player and creating licks and fills and solos for the songs)
 
Bass (Creating that amazing bass sound that makes our stomachs tremble with a strong punch)
 
Vocals (Female soprano would be preferred, making the songs even more beautiful and mesmerizing)
 
Ok ladies and gents, this is a fairly long post already but yet there is a lot more to discuss. This is an ambitious project and i am sure it will be very hard and it involves a lots of sweat and tears to realize. That's why only people willing to put some time, their love for creating music and people willing to put effort and dedication would be considered. And in the end in would be an opportunity to make long life friends in the process and embark on a journey that a lot of people dream about.
 
So please don't be shy, all who are interested introduce yourselves.

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  


      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious.

    • It is fair to say that the Greek stalwarts of the Black Metal scene now have a sound that rarely ventures into the territory so well tread on "Thy Mighty Contract" and "Non Serviam" but it is also fair to say that "The Heretics" sounds from start to finish like a band who firmly stamp themselves on the metal map for 2019.  What album number thirteen from Rotting Christ does is take a measured approach to variation and repetition to build a memorable and lasting experience.

      The sound itself goes from dark and brooding metal and hard rock to almost Gothic metal proportions.  Yet at the same time that familiar melodic warmth remains in situ throughout.  More often than not there's that big soaring melodic riff riding the vocals like a surfer with his board.  "The Voice of the Universe" does this superbly as does "The Sons of Hell".  The overall feel the record as a whole leaves me with is one of ritualistic allure, tracks like "Hallowed Be Thy Name" and "Fire God and Fear" build well like powerful incantations being cited from voluminous tomes, flooding forwards intermittently with flowing dark melodies.


      It does remind me a lot of Behemoth ("The Satanist" Behemoth, not last years pompous bollocks Behemoth), with the theme of religion so heavily referenced but at the same time it feels like a much more cohesive effort than recent Behemoth keeping a level of consistency and restraint to the songwriting which holds the attention well.  Only once does the album visit anything like Black Metal on "I Believe", here they base a poem by Nikolaos Kazantzakis at the centre of the chaotic and frantic pace and sadly it fails miserably on my ears, coming across as just filler.  My only other criticism is that it does get a bit samey in places (namely the intros to each track).  Otherwise it is a perfectly respectable piece of dark metal.  C'mon, we can't this black metal anymore folks.
