    A funeral/atmospheric doom metal one.

    I would say i'm a decent song writer. I'm decent with singing, and I'm practicing to growl. I'm really serious about this Even a virtual thing over the net would be cool. We could send our ideas to each other, along with sound bytes, like, say I have an idea for vocals and I...

    Damn, if I could play an instrument

    or sing, I'd totally form a band haha. I'd like to form a hardcore rock/screamo band, that would be badass. It's just so heavy, it makes me wanna go insane, I love that kind of music :)

    I play guitar, bass and do vocals.

    I live near Baltimore, MD. I'm really inspired right now by ambient music/shoegaze/metal, etc. I currently play guitar in and write for a Deathcore/Djent band, Visions of Virtue, but I want to do something on the side of that. Something spacey and dreamy but with moving bass and...

    I just feel like I don't have the time to

    commit fully. I guess I'll do it after I finish school or something. Then I'll be the lead singer/rhythm guitarist in a super awesome indie rock band. I'll let you guys know when we make it big, don't worry.

    What's Up? Let's Do This.

    I sing, I write lyrics, don't play any instruments, but I can hum it and YOU can get it out thru your fingertips, lol. I have tons of material by way of living a lonely existence, and if you're here, I'll just bet you do too. What are we waiting for?
