Dramatic entrance popular around here?
My name is Jasper and I am a newbie on these forums.
Not so new to metal though. Though I am more of a specialist with my tastes in the vast sub genera ocean of metal. Typically I enjoy only the melodic side of the metal sub genera Metal-core. I dont care for all the screaming and death style vocals though thats not enough to keep me away from those tasty licks, brutal breakdowns and soaring interludes.
I have played in a couple local bands (MN) over the last 3 years and that has been a great aid in my journey of musical self discovery.
Currently I play the lead guitar in a band called Crimson Vale.
Crimson Vale | Coon Rapids, MN | Rock / Metal / Hard Rock | Music, Lyrics, Songs, and Videos | ReverbNation
A goal of ours it to be a mainstream melodic metal core band sans screaming.
That way we can draw people who wouldn't usually listen to that heavier blend into the greatness that is those other musicians.
Crimson Vale is not a cover band and there are no intentions of ever going in that direction, we believe that if we cover a song and our cover sucks it is showing disrespect to the original artists.
My first guitar was a Jackson Randy Rhodes EX I got it when i was 16 and fell in love with the idea of one day having thousands of screaming fans that want to see me play. So that has been my pursuit ever since.
So yeah that's my intro. I hope to learn a lot from yall.
