    How about putting this in your ad:

    Influences: Rage (audioslave), primus, mudvayne, tool, system of a down

    Or when someone asks you "What genre band are you starting?" Say "Something along the lines of Rage (audioslave), primus, mudvayne, tool, and system of a down."

    I don't know what "genre" that is, so just say it's rock, or heavy, or something even more vague. You could even make up a genre, you could call it post-modern modernism.
  3. I think Nails has nailed it. :)

    I wouldn't just say it's 'rock'. That's really far too vague. They could think you're talking about Queen, The Beatles, and the like - which come under 'Rock' but really aren't at all the same as what you're talking about. Say it's metal or something.
  5. FunkMetal sounds good to me. But its not as good as GothSka!

    I have always been very amused by the concept of goth ska.
