Anybody feel like joining a band that'll be one of the biggest bands on the planet?
#1
LOOKING FOR: rhythm guitarist/bassist/drummer/singer

I live in Portland Oregon.

I'm 22 years old, and I’ll be looking for musicians my age or younger. The reason for this, is that I'm planning to have this group run for 50 years or more, and I want the longevity to be secure.

You’ll need be as proficient with your instrument as Metallica were in the 80s. It won't be too demanding, but it’ll push you hard enough where you'll need to keep your chops up to consistently play it.

Also, this will be a heavy touring a band. You look at a band like Metallica, and they have done tours for nearly every year that they've been a band. It'll be worth it, as we'll come up with incredible, unorthodox tours and projects. We’ll try to keep everything as fresh as possible to have it remain fun.

We're aiming to be bands like Led Zeppelin. A band that was enormously commercially successful, but was also met with near-equal critical acclaim.

Similar to Radiohead, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, etc. we'll dabble in a variety of genres. When we delve into these genres, we'll create inspiring, top tier songs in those genres, as the mentioned bands have. We'll together study these genres to do so

Anyway, the band will be formed in two years (2014). From now until then, we'll practice and come up with music ideas. From 2014-2015, we will get signed, continue to write, and record our debut album, and have it released by 2015 at the LATEST. By the following year (2016) or the year after (2017), we will no doubt be amongst the biggest and most acclaimed bands on the planet. This will be the result of revolutionary marketing strategies I am thinking of (we will all pitch together ideas as well), among a variety of other methods.

So, to join the band, you'd need to meet all of the following requirements:
- young
- proficient in a variety of genres in two years
- have a STRONG work ethic to meet the demands of touring and a variety of side projects we'll be doing
- be prepared to stay with the bend for at least 50+ years
- have the technical capabilities of Metallica at their peak
-have the talent to create a string of classic albums that incorporate a variety of genres.


Being competent in a variety of genres may seem daunting at first, but with practice we should all get to where you need to be. The constant tours and projects may seem daunting as well, but when you realize how it all works out, you’ll be pretty OK with it. In fact, a good chunk of that project time will be be fun projects that we'll all plan out. Too many times have we heard bands break up, come to near-break ups, or continue with strained relationships. I want to minimize that as much as possible, by creating big, fun group stuff that we'll think of. We’ll even work together on projects that’s related to your hobbies outside music.Coming up with anything and everything to keep us a tight unit for as long as possible is the key.

Your enthusiam is to be commended - just one small problem. I can't see any of you playing Metallica type material at 72 years of age!

Hey I just thought of a name for your band - The Zimmer Frames!

Like Jerome, I admire your "dream" and enthusiasm !!!!...good luck and remember me when you're famous !!!!.....furthermore I don't think I'll be joining the band!

Zabrak is a good band name!...noticed you're from Portland, Oregon...a real music hotbed these days....home of one of my beloved bands Agalloch and others whose names escape me at the moment !
 The ultimate connection is between a performer and its' audience!

Thanks, guys.

and yeah, I don't know. The Stones' drummer is 71, but then again their music is a bit simpler than metallica's sound.

And yeah SteveO, there's a small part in a metal song that I'm crafting that' influenced by agalloch

Hell yes, Zabrak is a good name! Easily remembered and has a nice 'mysterious' ring to it. Also very forceful sounding word. Right balance of consonants and vowels. I think you should take Steve's advice.

get the name ZABRAK right in a loge design and i think its a winner IMO, as its mysterious like SteveO said, could mean anything the listener wants it to mean
