    We are mid to late 20s. If that matters to you.

    We are an instrumental band with a lot of influences.

    Mainly:
    Mr. Bungle
    Russian Circles
    Pelican
    Mastodon
    Godspeed you! Black Emperor
    Botch
    Converge
    Battles
    Hella
    Don Caballero
    By The End of Tonight
    Genghis Tron
    Giraffes??Giraffes!!
    Melt-Banana
    Baroness
    Fever Ray
    Dredg
    El Ten Eleven



    We have a few samples (two demos) at caralarm.bandcamp.com

    They are about a year old though and recorded on one crappy sm-58 clone..so..yeah not too great. But they were just live takes that we would use to record practice sessions for reference.
    ==============================

    We are currently recording a 5-song EP at Sounds Arts Recording..(2 songs done so far) and after laying down some tracks we realized a bassist really helps fill out our sound. (Right now just two guitars and drums.)

    (((Please have pro-ish level gear...transportation...income or some sort would be good (broke guys can't afford to maintain their gear or buy gas to drive to practice)...and most importantly you have to be serious about playing music, especially original instrumental music, or this probably just won't work.

    If you can play synth or are willing to learn that is a bonus but definitely not mandatory. Some songs we play real bass...on others...bass synth. We have a Korg R3 for use)))


    THANKS! :bassist:
