Favorite bands :
Cradle of Filth, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Maniac Spider Trash/FDQ, Pink Floyd, Thin Lizzy, Nirvana, Marilyn Manson (but not his new stuff).
Favorite guitarists :
Kerry King - A guy who walks from place to place with a bottle of Jaegermeister in his hand... If you don't like him, I'll punch you in the head.
Favorite bassists :
That dude from original Metallica who died - He was great, and after he went, metallica started rolling downhill. Shame I can't remember his name.
Tom Araya - ''Running and hunting and slashing
and crushing and searching
and seeing and stabbing and shooting
and thrashing and smashing and
burning destroying and killing
and bleeding and pleading then Death'' - Any man who can remember those words, sing them well AND play bass simultaneously is a worthy god of metal.
Spike - She's small, she's strange and if you get too close she bites your fingers, but give her a bass and she's the finest person to wield a weapon since the days of Achilles.
Favorite books :
The only book I ever read cover to cover was the Odyssey, and for a book that's about 3000 years old, it was pretty awesome... when I come to think of it, calling something so revered ''pretty awesome'' is fairly low brow.
Favorite tv :
Red Dwarf, Top Gear, Father Ted, Billy Connelly.
Favorite movies :
I'm a film student, therefore I hate all films.
At the moment I'm working on some short instrumental tracks with my bassist, they're keeping to a fairly cohesive style of progressive dark-metal - But that's about all I can say at the moment. We haven't been as busy as we'd have liked to have been, seeing as I've been ill for a while and my effects pedal has been on the blink, but I'm on the mend now and I'm looking into getting myself a BOSS GT-8.
As far as the theory plan goes, I see little point in expanding on it for the moment. I'm one of the few people that can produce a cohesive instrumental without being able to explain how I'm doing it... This is not the professional approach to theory, but it's working great for me for the moment, so I'll return to learning theory again when I think I need to improve further.
My practical guitaring is coming along pretty well, in the last two weeks I've got better and better at alternate and upward picking, and I've even given sweep picking a go - Saying that, I suck pretty badly when It comes to sweep picking so I've stopped at that, seeing as it's not really a common technique outside of soloing.
As for the recordings, that is all coming along well! We've got a lot of Ideas down, and all we've gotta do is get the correct gear for recording, which with any luck should be a doddle.
