    My covers band (for lovers of older metal!)

    As I may have mentioned here and there I was collared a few weeks ago by a dude walking past my house. He's the other guitarist. I said no initially then woke the fuck up and said yes.

    We've only have one band practice so far, but it was badass. The other guitarist and me have had a few jams at my place too (he lives at the end of the street, which is how he found me!) and that's also been awesome.

    Anyway, with Darkadian not doing jack shit as fucking usual, it's nice to have something else to put some energy into. Just thought I'd tell ya about it!

    Here's a list of some of the songs we're doing:

    Iron Maiden - The Trooper
    Iron Maiden - Hallowed be Thy Name
    Iron Maiden - Can I Play With Madness
    Pantera - Walk
    Megadeth - Peace Sells
    Megadeth - Symphony of Destruction
    Metallica - For Whom The Bell Tolls
    Metallica - Harvester of Sorrow
    Metallica - Stone Cold Crazy (Queen)
    Metallica - Sad but True
    Anthrax - Madhouse
    Ozzy Osbourne - Facing Hell
    Ozzy Osbourne - No More Tears

    Those are just some of them. It's been a blast learning all this so far, because it's all the shit I was religious about when I first started learning. It's a bit daunting being the youngest in the band by a good 18 years though, but they're all such awesome, welcoming dudes.

    I'll try and take some video of our next practice!

    That is all.

    P.S we don't have a name yet. But some of the better ideas so far: Vinegar Stroke, None More Grey, Big Bong Theory, and Savage Stapler.
    Recording. Mixing. Mastering. Editing. Re-Amping.

    Sounds badass! Exactly the kind of band I'd like to be in. Encouraging to hear that people well into their 40's actually play metal, together, in a band, for fun. It's not the impression I get when going through the band member classifieds. Mostly 22 year olds putting in a 210% effort toward the BIG break. The search continues...
