I have no idea. We play mostly originals.

Middle eastern sounding doom metal, power metal, blues, and rock. Influences are The Doors, Alice in Chains, Black Sabbath, Queen, Led Zeppelin. But we sound quite different from all of them because a lot of it has a middle eastern sound to it.
Standard 2 (maybe even 3) Guitars, Bass, Drums, Vocals. I'd really like a keyboardist though.

I'm not in an official band at the minute, but the stuff I usually write sounds like Radiohead trying to play doom metal during a week long meth binge listening to The Bronx.
Every love that made me lose my reasoning. Every chord that made my conscience ache. Every day spent counting hours. Well, none of them comes close to singing back a song inside my head.
I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.
We were called TORTUSC. We were a 6-piece band but only three of us ever played anything at one time, and the other members had to stand behind a rope and be tagged in for their parts. We broke up because we couldn't find a good replacement for our bass player who killed himself because he thought he was a werewolf hunter in a world with no more werewolves. It was pretty sad.
It was fun, though. Every show ended in the signing of petitions to Kitten Congress on matters of important kitten legislation.
We released one EP on Geoduck/Rapefest called Going Home to Have a Wank but it was only ever released on wax cylinder and they all melted in a huge sandalwood incense fire. Smelled nice though.
We were going to do a split with OHMYGODGETITOFFME when we broke up. Would have been cool, but c'est la vie...
Fragmenta is like a modern version of thrash metal at it's core, really expanding on the progressive side (like the classic thrash bands before they shortened all their songs, but perhaps a bit stronger like Tool and Opeth) fused with a strong industrial vibe with synths, strings, keys, samples, metallic percussion. Vocals are quite elastic as I draw influence from many vocal styles. We'll go as heavy as black and death metal sometimes, but dont stay there constantly enough to be labelled as so. We're very big on dynamics and having an enormous, cinematic quality to our music and shows. Some of you that bought our album would know about that.
My last band : "metalhead" drummer playing as fast as he could, twin pedal on every song to show everyone how awesome he is, but missed beats often.
Mediocre bassist that don't know how to improvise, only playing the root note, C-C-C-C G-G-G-G
GREAT vocalist, sounds just like every other metal album.
We only play cover songs, avenged sevenfold, bullet for valentine, disturbed, LOG, etc.
In short, we were pathetic.
hypothetical blues/rock band:
somewhere in between Mk. II and Mk. III Deep Purple, Gary Moore and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Most of my music is written for my outfit called 'The Fab Little Beat Combo', which plays everything except '60s pop, hence the name. (although sometimes we do play '60s pop to double the confusion). The members are Medium Nigel Wattspumpkin, Johann Wheelbarrow Custard, Jason Mgabwe Mgabwe Coca-Cola Smith Brown Jones, Arthur Steakhead and myself. Other identitites are created when further instruments are needed.
Instrumentation is usually various combinations of drums, bass, piano (dimble-domble), organ, guitar, harp or harpsichord, cello, viola, violin, toy piano, chimes and assorted other noises.

I'd like to be in a sit down instrumental jazzy bluesy rocky worldy fusion band with influences ranging from weather report to Allman brothers to Santana to return to forever and on and on and on .... 2x Gtr, bass, drums, Horn and wind section, percussion section, organ, synths ...

Is it not the glory of the people of America that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience?" - James Madison - Federalist #14

early zakk wylde for the wonderful acoustic melodies....then add some metallica hetfieldish riffin, and for extra flavor add some old southern rock with some new southern rock... then a splash of alice in chains.....and you have my influences.
The band Greg Howe currently is in now, a bunch of experienced, educated, intelligent musicians mixed into one. Certainly not the kind of rock/ metal band whose members swear and drink beer the whole time.
