ABOUT

Metal vocalist looking to join or start a band, based in Sydney.

I’m a chick, doing growls like Arch Enemy (Angela Gossow era) and mid to high cleans, sorta like Evanescence or Within Temptation, with a bit of influence from Disturbed. I really wanna do both singing and growling in my next band because it’s fun and I like messing with people.

Here’s what I sound like:
Solo electro project coz I suck at guitar - http://destroyermariko.bandcamp.com
Previous band, but not much growling - http://rainbowdeathray.bandcamp.com

I don’t want to do the same kinda music in these EPs though. I wrote the songs, and coz I suck at guitar, they were never really what I wanted (and the electro thing was for uni so I had to play that game). For my next band, styles I am interested in tend to be metal subgenres from the 90’s onward, including nu metal, industrial, gothic, symphonic, djent, metalcore, etc. I like some aspects of older styles, but my voice really isn’t suited to classic metal, and I like my death metal to be mixed with other sounds. Either way though, if you like my vocals, send me your band’s demos and we’ll see what happens.

I have a feeling I’m just gonna have to start a new band though, so if you’re interested let me know. Main thing I’d be looking for right now is someone who can help me write, probably a guitarist to fill in that weak point for me. Send me some riffs etc, if we can get the vibe right, then we can start there.

Note: communication and organisation are super important to me. Hoping to find people on that same wavelength to help things run smoothly. Bonus points if you have experience in things like band management, promo, recording etc, but I’ve already got that covered, so main thing is that you can help with writing the music, stay organised, and communicate well. Mention potatoes so I know you read this far, it’ll make me happy lol.

Thanks guys. Send me your sounds, or if you know someone looking, share this profile with them and send them my way. \m/

Influences

Vocals:
Growls - Arch Enemy (Angela Gossow) - I use false chord not fry
Cleans - Within Temptation, Nightwish, Evanescence, etc. I'm strongest up high.
Other - Eminem, Disturbed, even though I'll never actually sound like them, they influence my approach to my lower cleans, and I can dream...

Music:
I think I'm most drawn to heavy music with good rhythm and use of dynamics, but couldn't pin it down to any subgenre. I have a feeling most of my musical influences/interests fall under alternative metal subgenres from the 90’s onwards, like nu, industrial, gothic, symphonic, djent, metalcore, a bit of visual kei, and some fusion bands or those with unusual instrumentation/other novelties. However I do like elements of death metal and other older metal styles, so I wouldn't say no to them, but I probably do need a little more thrown in.

Instrument experience:

Vocalist:
Advanced

EQUIPMENT

I have my own microphone and cable for gigs, and also a small home studio setup for recording my own vocals and producing mostly electronic music.

I also have a bunch of electric instruments, including violin/viola, but am not currently looking to use them in a new project at this stage.
