My first gig was this friday, 23 June 2006, were a old school metal band. We sound like a mixture of Metallica, Pantera and Megadeth. We have been a band for about two months with all of us, the band has been around since the beggining of the year.
We consist of two guitarists, one bass player and one drummer. I play the bass. The rythm guitarist, (Cris) sings aswell.
We are called Infanteria, we take ourselves extremely seriously, we want to be the next big metal band, were getting flyers, badges, shirts and posters done for us, we got another three gigs coming up, one is a collection of bands playing and the other two are battle of the bands. After that were going to make like a 8 song demo, so i hope it goes all well.
On friday we got pushed to play first, we were meant to play second but it got jumbled up and we were pushed first. I have never been so scared in my entire life, lol. It was good fun, we didnt have to pay for anything, we just played a good show, it sucks that we played infront of a punk rock crowd, not a metal crowd but it was till good fun and we got ourselves some rep.
I love Slipknot, Korn, System of a Down, Ill Nino, Fear Factory, Statc-X, Machine Head, Mudvayne, DevilDriver and South Africa's greatest metal band Seether.
