Favorite bands :
Everything I like. I listen to Down, Karnivool, Fink, Riverside, Protest The Hero, Black Sabbath, Tool, Audioslave, Tesseract, Clutch, Korn, Gorillaz, etc. etc. In my teenage years I was a hardcore metalhead, so there's lots of metal in me still, but also a variety of other things.
I'm a guitarist and a composer, educated a bit in music theory and play the flute. My goal in music is to constantly evolve, try new things, thrive towards originality and to touch the soul. I try to make my music come from within, and ignore genres as a means of limiting what I create, thriving towards complete creative freedom. Music is art, and art is emotion, and art is liberation.
I have a band, if I had to put a genre, it would be alt/progressive metal/stoner/psychedelic..or something like that, I don't know. You can check us out on http://velar.bandcamp.com/.
