    I'm definitely now part of the most stereotypical post-hardcore/emo band that I've ever heard. It's more of an experiment between myself and three friends though. I'll keep you all posted, it should be good.

    and I've written some songs that are more on the serious and musical side, and I've demoed a very few of them, so we'll see how that turns out. they may or may not get released to the public or even recorded.

    I am in a band. 2, actually. One is particularly serious. One is silly, and there's no material for it. :lol:

    The first one, the silly one, is called Exploding Moses. Yes, I know, you're probably going to criticize me for copying Testament or something typical, but me and Testament kinda created this whole thing with Exploding religious characters. We came up with EM and EJ. He went far with EJ. I didn't with EM, but I'm working on it. It consists of me and my friends Ryan, DJ Zap, and Sean Smith.

    The serious band I'm working with is Monatori. It may sound familiar to some of you. Monatori was actually the name of a member here a while back, but he doesn't really participate here anymore, but it was the name of his band. It consisted of two members, Ryan (Keep in mind EM was made after Monatori, and that this is the same Ryan from EM) and Chris. I met Ryan through a message board my friend Ron made and we became good pals. He showed me some of his music and through the course of maybe the past 1 and a half years or so I've been helping him and being his critic. He later then decided for me, as well as DJ Zap, to join Monatori. So I'm in the band, and I play Piano and Guitar in the band. I am also the Production Manager of our record label, Theorist Records. You can check it out some of our stuff here: http://www.myspace.com/monatori.

    I am also doing a solo project on my own. Basically, it's just little things. I haven't really gotten up and out. I'm making a song that I've been wanting to make over the course of year with Monatori, which is good. That's definitely going to go up on the MySpace. I have two songs that I made, one called Tour and another called Ad Infinitum, which are both one minute instrumentals. I also have two other songs, one from Monatori and one from Ryan. You can check those out: http://www.myspace.com/spanias.

    You can check out our website for our record label and the bands and artists signed to it here: http://www.monatori.com.

    Almost necroposting there...

    Initial D movie... great fun.

    But since this thread isn't dead (yet), might as well update with specifics.

    Aubrey:
    Brian C. Hudson - Vocals, Vocoder, Synth, Drums
    Ryan Becker - Vocals, Talkbox, Guitar, Keyboard
    Sarah Brister- Vocals, Flute, Vocoder
    Kacy Howe (me) - Viola, Synth, possibly Vocoder
    Teddy Yu - Guitar, Violin
    Trey Price- Synth
    Guyton Sanders- Drums
    Abe Kotara- Percussion (second drumset basically)
    Christina Richardson- Bass Guitar
    Codi Sisk- Stand-up Bass
    Claire Sieverman- Cello

    Yes, that's a lot of members but consider that this is Aubrey CONDENSED. Meaning that a lot of people are multitasking right now. Ideally we'd have a full-time violinist and vocoder and violist, but we want to play live ASAP so it's kind of hard to find that many people.

    Our (as of now) Unordered Setlist:
    Leap Year
    I Am Alive
    IV
    Nights of Milan
    Mirage
    Revolve
    Le Boombox
    Now
    New Day

    Once we get our show live, we're going to start recording new songs too.

    Also we just got signed to Cassette Recordings, and sometime in the future, Aubrey's songs are going to be made available on iTunes. Furthermore, we might have to change our name if Aubrey is already in use, in which case we will be The Omni-Heist.

    Check us out at:
    Aubrey Myspace
    Aubrey Extended (more songs)
    Aubrey Museum (main webpage, some older songs on there

    What do you guys think would be a good song to play in front of a high school audience? So far, its either Chop Suey!, Duality, or Dying in your arms, and Im thinking about welcome to the Black parade, but I don't know, because we really need to focus on one song, and I haven't asked my band yet

    Im pretty sure were doing Duality, its a pretty easy song, and it sounds awesome, so yeah. The thing I dont like about my band is that, im the only one that actually practices, and knows the songs, my drummer is too lazy, the tother guitarist dosnt try because his guitar is a peice of crap, and my bassist is a noob.

    Yeah I know, plus he dosnt have a double kicker or anything, but he made up his own parts which is what I told him to do.

    We already started practicing Chop Suey awhile ago, but I would really rather do duality. Plus, you have to remeber that we dont have a singer, so Chop Suey would get boring very fast, and Duality is pretty good the whole way through, plus we could always change riffs, try and make solos and all that stuff.

    I don't have a band but I rap!

    Wow. I'm impressed by this Aubrey group. I can't believe you got all those people together to make a sound like that. Musically, this is the direction music should be. And the singer is pretty good. Keep doing what you do - I am impressed!

    My german teacher was all excited when she saw a poem of mine...I'm sure she didn't even get half of it...but she wanted me to do a song with a kid in my class that raps...I wrote some lyrics...he rapped his parts...they sucked 'cause you can totally hear he's german...but other than that...recording was fun...especially 'cause it didn'T cost us any money...

    And since my band and I haven't met up in the past 5 months...we're back to where we started...new bandmembers...new song ideas...and just strted writing again last week

    Bandmembers:
    Band:??? (currently no name)
    Guitars:Joshua Schindler /Josh & Maximillian Praunrath / Max
    Bass: Pola (she only let's us use this nickname)
    Drums: David Schwalb / Dave
    Keyboard:Markus Gumper / Gumper
    Backing Vocals:Franziska Mörder / Franzi (yah...it's a SHE...but she really rules in hitting the notes I can't get and she adds a certain power to most parts)
    Vocals:Me (Christopher Ratliff / Chris)

    I started a little rap/rock project on the side

    Song list:

    Our actual band:^
    1.:A little rewritten just for fun version of Destroy all by Static-X
    2.: (No name for song...still work in progress)
    it's not much...but we're working on it...the band how it exists right now was made up like...I don't know...maybe three weeks ago

    Rap project:

    1.:War of the 7 nations (the song our teacher 'forced' us in to)
    2.:Just another bad way of presenting myself (Work in project)

    so yah...a lot of work...it'll be an assload of fun ^_^
