Very Solid guitarist and drummer here currently on the lookout for someone who is a technical wizard on keyboard and a vocalist who bears a sonic resemblance to a 11th dimensional demon.

This is a new project:

Our objective is to be pioneers in the music scene and to do something new that stands out.
We are not hindered by social constructs like "cvlt" or "core" or any other specific genre of music.
We incorporate Death Metal, Technical, "Blackened" Metal, Melodic and Thrash all into one.
If it sounds good or evil we play it.
We don't want to be held back by a specific sound and want to do something strange and eternal.
We want to do something big here.

What we are looking for in a keyboardist:

Someone who's forte is keys. Someone creative that knows how to create the mood of a song.
Instead of having a second guitarist in the band we are toying with the idea of having a rhythm/ lead keyboard player who can intertwine with the guitar. (As I have learned in the past having a second guitarist can be a long and painful process). We are looking for Someone who loves to play with different sounds, effects, instruments and experiment on the keyboard. Our current idea is to have a different story or theme to every song we write which leaves the keyboardists creative options endless. Maybe one song is all about church organs or another has strings galore to fit the mood maybe one song has an 8-bit retro video game vibe to get those Zelda dungeon or Castlevania feels or maybe another is about escaping a infested swamp and has oboes and other creepy woodwind instruments to back the ominous mood. (you get the idea)
Email me if you think this is your jam.

What we are looking for in a vocalist:

Someone unique.
We are not looking for your typical hardcore tough guy vocalist (you know the sound).
We are looking for someone vicious and erratic with those creepy zombie sounding mid and high vocal ranges.
Someone who will weave their hands around in unusual motions and cast spells on the crowd and isn't afraid to get "intimate" with the ghouls and gals in the crowd.
We don't want that tough guy who's gonna flex, puff up his chest and belt out nothing but lows and grunts.
We honestly need a fast and articulate vocalist. Think vocalists like Trevor Strnad or Travis Ryan.
Also for the love of English... please.. someone who can write lyrics above a 3rd graders level of grammar...
If your a sick vocalist but not so great on the lyric side of things its not the end of the world.
I don't mind working around this as I'm a lyricist myself and can help if need be ( I suck at vocals though).
If this sounds like your jam please email me.
