I need a Lead Guitarist for a new band

from phribbit - Wednesday, August 22, 2007

Im presently 17. just left the family and am in Brazil. I wanted to start a band.

Im a bassist and general musician (play and understand guitar and piano a bit). Im looking to start a band. I have a drummer and rhythm guitarist in the family who are on their way out. If we all decide to push this through, we would likely settle in Detroit or Seattle as a band. Im looking to see if there are any kick ass lead guitarists out there. I mean real good ****. Our founding influences are Metallica and Pantera but we are presently into Lamb of God, Trivium, Children Of Bodom, Shadows Fall, Smashing Pumpkins and Slayer. We are a young few. The Guitarist is 15 (he is a beginner but he has style, talent and a Dean Dimebag Guitar. The Drummer just turned 18. he has a Tama drum set, he loves speed and double pedaling. He and the guitarist are presently in Brazil as well. We need a lead guitarist who has vocal and hopefully stage experience (as we do). We are open for band names too, as we haven't fully decided on one yet. Contact me at or visit/join our orkut community.

Hmmm, there has not been a decent band from Brazil since Sepultura, or before Sepultura for that matter (Unless you count Soulfly, but that would be redundant). Move to Seattle and hope for a revival or something.

Samuel, that's hillarious.

I absolutely thought Vas was the shit when I was in the cult, I had him sign one of my "prized" plaid shirts and kept it for years after I left the cult--Stupid huh? (reply to this comment

Good Luck with that, I would def choose Seattle over Detroit, but really anywhere in the states there are tons of guitarists just waiting to get into a band. Do you do Myspace? tons of people to find there.

I was hoping for someone that has been in the family. We would have more in common and would be united with our common background. We could also make the cult style theme."the ex-cult-members" or something of the sort(reply to this comment

I can understand that, because well you could say freaks have more in common with other freaks than normal people.

Bad analogy, I know, and most of us are normal people now, but we still share a common background with each other more than with people who've had a normal childhood.

I personally still feel I haven't much in common with most people, my friends etc, because the majority of my life was spent in the cult.
I can't really open up to them, you really can't have your background be made public knowledge (barring special circumstances).

That's why I'd be able to relate far more to someone who's had a Family background.

Perhaps it will be different as time goes on...(reply to this comment

No offence, but the thought of being considered "united" with anyone who happens to have the same unfortunate childhood as I might happen to have just sounds downright creepy. *horrible shiver*

Perhaps what you should be advertising for is someone freshly out of the cult, as I can't see any selfrespecting long time exer really wanting to be a part of that. Or maybe that's just me?(reply to this comment

Hardly a fair comparison. Movingon is not an organization of any kind, it's a forum. (reply to this comment

"being considered "united" with anyone who happens to have the same unfortunate childhood as I might happen to have" is not talking about an organisation.(reply to this comment

Fine, movingon is not a "union" of any kind. Semantics. (reply to this comment

Thank you AndyH for pointing out what I would have thought was the obvious.

As for the question, I certainly don't feel any "unity" with anyone on here, at least not because of our upbringing. Anyone I happen to still know from the cult has remained a friend despite not because of our common upbringing. I come on here simply out of curiosity to see whether anything new has been published against the fam, or for an occasional dose of weird nostaligia.

That said, if some people view this site as some sort of online "united" cult or group, please do let me know so I can steer well clear of it in the future. Otherwise I shall continue to regard this as the same as any other forum which happens to discuss a topic I have some interest/experience in.(reply to this comment

I created a group on myspace called "Vandari", but that was very tongue-in-cheek. (reply to this comment

I was in a rock band for a couple of years, starting I guess about 10 years ago. We were called "Revolving Images", I played drums and wrote lyrics. Our biggest gig was we once got to open for Alice Cooper. Which I guess sounds like a kind of big deal, but it really wasn't. we got to watch his show from the side/back stage and hung out with him afterwards which was kind of cool. For all the freaky make up and his crazy image, he is really a very down to earth, smart and laid back guy. He didn't do the whole "lets get coked up and trash the place cause we are fucking rock stars" kind of shit. Honestly, I was a bit bored during the after party. But this was right when I had just fully left TF and didn't really know how to act or have a good time, or even how to just be mellow and chill. It took me many years to kind of shape my personality, and develop the characteristics I have now.(reply to this comment
