I got a callback from a band that's kinda [see subject thread title!], at least that's how I'd describe them as someone who's a little bit of an outsider to those genres. They remind me a bit of Tool, tiny bit of Deftones, maybe a little Queens Of The Stone Age and Dream Theatre with some slight blues leanings. I became interested in the project because I saw that they've gigged a lot, they have a nice website that seems very well put-together, and it looks to me that they are very serious and dedicated players. I have to admit their genre is not naturally something I'd initially think of myself as playing, but I was drawn to it because their style and abilities are so much more technical than the bands I've been in before, and therefore refreshing to me. I felt like it would be a good incentive to branch out and become a more flexible player. The band consists of two guitarists and a drummer. Within this vein of music, are there any bass lines I should start wrapping my head around, any styles or tones I should maybe think about, just to dive in a little more and have some background knowledge?
