Metal Head Chicks'
|||||christbait - slow & metal||]|
Hi, I thought this community looked cool, just joined, de-lurking.
My name's Talie, & obviously I'm a metalhead. I'm also a musician. I played boards in an early 90's doomdeath band called Portrayal (who you probably won't have heard of, unless you're Australian), & gothic ethereal band called Eden (that you could look up on http://www.projekt.com if it's of interest, but I imagine not), & currently gig solo acoustic, but there are other things in the works. I also do some DJing in metal clubs, when my erm, 'metal attitude' doesn't cause me to clash with money-grabbing pricks.
I love my metal, & I love playing it. I love doom & doomdeath more than any other style, but also death/black/grind a little superheavy stoner, a little viking metal, really dark industrial metal in the vein of Godflesh, & classic metal. Like any good songwriter, my tastes range far beyond the genre of metal, ya gotta have diversity to grow as a musician, but since I noticed the guidelines for this community are quite stringent (astringent?), I won't get into all that... um... jazz!
I'm Australian, living in Melbourne, although I hope to travel in 2003 a little. I love Australian metal, & kicked off a community for Melbourne metalheads & those interested in Australian metal metal4melbourne. The scene here is sick, it just doesn't get enough recognition. Basically I am involved in metal from a participating point of view first, not just a sit-back-&-watch-the-boys perspective, but I will always be a fan of hearing great music as well.
I am rabidly madly & hopelessly in love with music. It's my life.
Well, I hope to meet some cool chycks in this community. I noticed there are a few other musicians here, which is great.
