Established Fort Lauderdale based metal band - TheOPENING - is looking for a full time replacement drummer. Music style is similar to Tool meets Slipknot with influences ranging form pantera, lamb of god, gwar, faith no more, blue man group, chimaira, and Adult Swim tv. the band also does a "dressing up" image including ski masks, but may or may not keep the masks..not sure yet.. We already have one full length album released so far (12 songs - download on EnterTheOpening.com) and currently play songs form it. you will have a cd of recorded material to learn form. Once our fulltime drummer is picked, then new meterial for a new album will be written together. This is a serious hobby for us, as no real money is involved yet, but we want to have fun as well and maybe will turn into more. Currently, we have locally opened for national act bands such as..... Mushroomhead, Hed Pe, Motorgrater, Wayne Static (static-x).... as well as did a 2 week US tour with Nonpoint. have played at the Culture Room & Revolution.
as far as the new drummer is concerned.....there are realy no requirements (as in I hate bands that rattle off a huge list of them...), but there are some suggestions. personally...just being able to "relate" to each other means a lot.....& honestly, just check out the links below with music and video clips posted to see if you enjoy the music/image. Please only respond if the music/videos appeal to you first....this is more of a passion project than anything else. i want someone just as passionated about the band and music as the rest of us. we already have a recording studio/rehearsal place and merch (shirts & cds)....as well as currently gigging and ready to write new material.
SUGGESTIONS (not requirements!)
-have equipment....should be a given....altho i do have a practice kit ready at the rehearsal spot.
-ages between 18 and 30. we are early 20s to early 30s.
-enjoy/understand bands that "dress" up like gwar, slipknot, blue man group as we do the same with ski masks/suits...the masks could change tho.
-enjoy playing shows and understands that not every show is the "rock star" treatment! some venues will be great, some venues will be bars....
-team player...but understands that this is a passion project with a certain vision/vibe.
-has income to upkeep with instrument mantaince....(skins, heads...again another given...) but you WONT have to pay for practice/recording!
-motovated to do this. please only respond if the music means something to you!
-form broward since thats where we practice.
-being able to tour would be nice but not needed at the moment.
