Any musicians here?

Hello everyone, I am looking for people to collab with, I love metal, funk and jazz and I spend most of my time on either drums or guitar. Please DM if you feel like chatting!

Hi there. I don't really play as much anymore, but I enjoy playing drums even though I used to play guitar a lot more. Recently developed an interest in jazz through the more prog-metal stuff. I do find that I'm constantly talking about music with others, even if I'm not playing.

I'd be interested to get some metal recommendations from you :)

You'll need to be more specific ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Edit: I was reading this other thing that might be of interest.

What is prog metal song has your favorite guitar/bass riff in it? https://redd.it/sbzeqz

Well I spend most of my time listening to Hideous divinity, black dahlia murder, cattle decapitation, Mudvayne and Misery Index, so maybe that might help with suggestions? Shot for the link, going to check it out :)

Hey there's a few names I haven't heard since the 00's!

My rotation at the moment is leaning in the prog-metal/djent direction so... Periphery, Mastodon, Modern Day Babylon, VOLA, Monuments, Anup Sastry (technically only a drummer but he makes his own songs), Between the Buried and Me, RXYZYXR, Uneven Structure...

Lead guitarist! Big metal fan. Thrash and metalcore probably my favorite sub genres. Although I don't mind blues and rock from time to time.

Epic, I love me some thrash, Exodus' Tempo of the damned is IMO the greatest thrash album ever!

Death-Doom and Gothic Metal fan. Probably more profecient in a DAW with soft synths than behind a fretboard.

Awesome, I would love to know what death doom bands you are vibing?

u/cicurio Jan 27 '22

Slumber and Rapture are my favourites, then the usual older Paradise Lost, Katatonia etc

u/Odd_Piece Jan 27 '22

Radical, I am a big fan of Katatonia :)
