SEEKINGVocalist, Vocalist - Soprano, Vocalist - Alto.
We are The Mercury Equation, a newly formed modern progressive rock/metal band looking for a Vocalist.
We started off as a project between two brothers, and we have now written well over 30 songs which, subject to a few changes here and there, are ready to go.
We really feel that what we write is different to everything out there, as we blend heavy influences, 6, 7 and 8 string guitars and layered instrumentals with a poppy sensibility to produce something which is catchy but still has an edge.
Although we like heavy music, we place a STRONG emphasis on melody and harmony when it comes to vocals. Screaming is okay, but more as a background effect, almost a textural thing, rather than as a lead vocal. This is very important to us.
We're looking for a like-minded vocalist, between the ages of 18 and 26 (not a concrete age range necessarily) who is as passionate about music as we are and wants to get somewhere. We ideally want someone who has quite a wide vocal range as well as a keen ear for melodies and is adept at writing lyrics.

Stylistically, we're taking a progressive approach in that as long as something sounds good and will fit in with the other songs we write, we're happy to use it.
