One of these days I was thinking to myself "how can I give something back to GLL and it's community who have helped me and so many people out?".
It came to me in a flash: GLL BAND!!!
I am a 16 year old guitar player with taste in heavy metal, which is the kind of music I like to write and record, and this genre fits GLL really good! Already I picture badass songs about:
Screening, getting laid
Approach anxiety (and triumph over it)
and so on!
I can take care of recording guitars, bass and drums, BUT, I think it would be the best thing if any member who has any musical skill would contribute! I want an epic solo by Terminator, that is a sure one!!! But what is only really missing is a vocalist , so if any of you guys reading can sing and record, be sure to respond to this thread.
As for lyrics, I will be starting a thread for each song in which I will give the theme, and everyone can give a sentence, a stanza or whatever the fuck you wish, as long as it describes your feelings about the theme, and from the contributions, the lyrics will be constructed: this way the GLL community will be strongly embedded in every song!!!
Alright guys, here is my idea! I feel really great about this, I hope you guys feel it too! I'm gonna start writing music for this (guitar parts and drums) soon!
Comment on this thread with your suggestions on themes, what you can play and very important, IF YOU ARE A SINGER AND CAN RECORD FOR YOURSELF!
LET'S ROCK THIS SHIT
P.S.: Just made the quickest video ever to prove I am real and show you guys who you're dealing with :
judging by the lyrical themes this sounds like it's going to be Steel Panther/80s inspired
not my favorite era for metal but I play bass almost exclusively and I have a bud who has a studio, maybe I could get him to mix/master the DI parts... unless PhilTheBeard would like to do that (I think he actually works in a studio)
lmao anyways what subgenre would we be playing - that'd help narrow down the vocals really fast
no talent to offer here, this sounds cool though as long as the songs are more like suggestive and vague vs actually being all literal and dorky sounding, I hate when a song sounds like I'm just reading a book or some shit.
you guys can try multiple genres btw, no reason to be stuck in one
@swan - I would guess people would get a "Steel Panther" vibe from this but no, that's not my favoutite era for metal either.
My favourite sub-genre is progressive metal, djent (fav. acts: periphery, devin townsend, meshuggah, arjen lucassen...) This leaves a lot of possibilities for vocal style, from screaming to melodic.
I had no idea Phil worked in a studio! Would definitely be interested to hear what he thinks and what he could do!
@hack - Definitely with you on this one, very literally described songs are not very cool. I picture something slightly metaphorical about a man's transformation through GLL, let's see though, it might all change!
Walberg: I have some experience in vocals. Not a prof but if you want I can do a sample recording and send it ur way and u can decide if it's what you're lookin for
to give you an idea of my taste, i'm not as much of a metalhead as you seem to be, but I do listen to it (Rhapsody of Fire for my workouts). I listen to grunge (Audioslave, Nirvana), rock (Offspring, 90s rock), alternative (Mumford & Sons, Flo&the Machine), alt punk (Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murpheys), and some other high-energy stuff I don't know how to label (Gogol Bordello). Lately I've been into electronic swing
I also have a little experience in guitar

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
