I haven't played music for weeks because of school. We all have the time now. Here are some albums that we use for inspiration and we try to mix them in our sound, successfully or unsuccessfully I don't know yet.
For me, bass. I'm not saying i'm as good as Dirk Lance but i look at this album for inspiration. I love the groove/metal/funk bass style going on on this album. SCIENCE is good for that too.
|3||He Is Legend |
Suck Out The Poison
For my drummer mostly. He's like Danny Carey i swear. The man is a beast on the skins. But this because we want to do hard/progressive riffs that get stuck in a listener's mind, and Aenima has a lot of that.
|5||Lamb of God |
|6||Queens Of The Stone Age|
Songs For The Deaf
For my guitarist. He has some crazy riffing up his sleeve, that just seems to fit. They aren't terribly difficult or technical but damn they are good, and memorable.
|7||Maylene and the Sons of Disaster|
Idk why, but we seem to be drawn to southern type metal. It's weird because we are from Wisconsin.
|8||Kings of Leon|
Only By The Night
I know it seems outta place, but we like the innovative stuff on this record. It's pop but it's still great.
|9||Muddy Waters |
Again going back to the southern/blues thing...
This is for me again. Like i said before i don't think i'm as good as les, but i look to him for riff ideas and what not. I know it's incredibly cliche for a bassist to say les claypool is his/her inpiration but it's true for me.
|I take it your band name is Burning Apollo? Got any tracks laid out?|
|No we don't really have a name yet. We've been jamming for a couple months now and a name hasn't come up yet. And no to tracks. We would love to record though|
|Burning Apollo sounds like a good name to me :) Reference to Coheed?|
The sound you describe sounds pretty cool, would love to hear the final product.
|If we ever record I'll send you the link|
|Nice, dude. Thanks. |
If that happens, put it on my main profile "Emim", I got banned so this is an alt.
|What kind of bass do you play bro man?|
|I play a custom. Some guy made it and sold it to a guitar shop in my town. It's a 5 string with EMG pick ups, 24 frets, and woodgrain. It's a beut.|
|what kind of music do you guys play? all of the references to other bands kinda confused me lol|
|Ah sweet, sounds cool.|
|It's definatly a hybrid of sounds. That's what we are going for. It's a heavy, jam, blues prog thing. Idk that's the best why that I can describe it. |
|having more than four strings on a bass bothers me for some reason|
|Why? I mean it can be a pain in the ass when you play in different tunings, at first. But i've gotten used to it and it accually is more convenient. |
|4, 5 and 6 (Y) and more than 5 strings gives a lot more variational possibilities, also solos sound awesome actually!|
