Band to Join.

ABOUT

Email: kilokiak AT DOT com

Bass player with experience with several rock and metal bands wanting to join a new project.

My main passion is Proggressive Rock and Metal but I'm looking to do anything with a rocky background that I find personally inspiring. Please get in touch with samples if you think you might fit the bill.

I am looking for something serious and will be willing to go all the way if need be. Currently living in the Netherlands expecting to probably be moving to the UK in september when my job contract finishes. (Project shouldn't start at that time unless based in south netherlands (or belgium/liege, germany/dusseldorf).

Will also consider a working covers/tribute/party type band.

Prefer established bands with gigs/tours booked but will consider a new start if the quality of the music is exceptional.


Capable of learning a set-list quickly if reqired, charts prefered for origionals. For covers keys needed, charts a bonus. I have a good ear but can not (sight) read standard notation.

Playing Style:
Fingerstyle (mainly and for fast stuff)
