Metal drummer required, enquire within

As some of you may know, I am in a metal band called Seraphidian. We play thick, chugging metal that is fat, rhythmic and groovy. We inspire from bands such as Nevermore, Overkill, Pantera, Messhuga, Fear Factory etc. We have recorded two EPs and a full length album called Caged which you are welcome to download here. We have also toured extensively around the UK, supporting acts including Anthrax, Raging Speedhorn, Kill 2 This, Skindred, Knuckledust, Defenestration, Area 54 and more.

Anyway, our drummer has recently departed the band, and we are looking for a replacement. Candidates should have the following criteria:

  • Technically proficient with strong double-bass drumming abilities
  • Good timed, tight player
  • Equipment and travel
  • Ability to attend a weekly rehearsals in Wolverhampton as well as performing live shows around the country
  • Fun sense of humour and easy going – Seraphidian is a loose and social band
  • Commitment to the band

We are based in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands in the UK,and this is where we rehearse. If you or someone you know may be interested, [mail me](mailto:jono AT jonobacon DOT org). :)

    aside from being in a different country and not being about to play double-bass, unless you mean the standup kind, that and a preference to play jazz and ambient with only the occasional punk disturbance thrown in; I’d be perfect for the job! At least, as long as you don’t force me to cheer for Wolves.

    Anyways, good luck with that, I’m sure you guys’ll filll up the position soon!

    You just meant a metal drummer, didn’t you? 😀

    I just listened to your Caged album, it sounds interesting. The drum may perhaps need to be a bit more present, but it is good overall.

    Pity, I’m no where near your area, might have taken you up on that 😛

    HI, My nickname is orDrumBox, I would be the perfect drummer for your band. I can easily do heavy metal and I like my coffee java style. Here is my homepage
