Is there any room for a harsh/death growl vocalist slash rhythm guitarist? Here's a simple writeup/application.
(This sort of seems like a Supergroup hodgepodge of different characters from different locales with different backgrounds, so here's my chance to be different
So if you think my character resembles Mikael Akerfeldt from Opeth a lot... He probably does. Hell, I'm using his picture!)
Name: Danny Söderström
Age: 29 (the greybeard of the band?)
Weight: 204 lbs.
Origin: Stockholm, Sweden / New York, NY
Notable Features (If Any): A very dashing moustache, and a very good grasp of the English language despite his Swedish nationality.
Tattoos (If any): None
Piercings (If any): None
Eye Color: Green
Hair Color & Style: Lightish brown, worn long and naturally straight
Physical Appearance (Pictures can be used): Picture above. He is in good shape, having served two years of mandatory military service after he turned 18.
*Instrument & Place in Band: Either Rhythm or Bass, whatever needs to be filled... Harsh or clean vocals, whatever is needed.
*Major Influences In terms of Bands & Musicians: Opeth, Between the Buried and Me, Emperor, Ensiferum.
*Favorite Genre: Progressive -Metal- (Could be death metal, could be metalcore... Anything progressive.)
*Musical Style: Progressive.
Fashion Sense: Almost casual. Usually, blue jeans, and a T shirt sporting an older band. Like this, this
, or this
. No obligation to the color black, but that doesn't mean he won't wear it.
Personality: Danny is usually the most laid back person in the band, in every band he's ever been in. Witty, but no comedian. Also being the oldest, he sometimes likes to play 'group counselor' whenever his band mates have a problem they want to talk out.
Sexuality: Hetero and kinky
Marital Status: On again, off again relationships. He usually finds his satisfaction between tours, or with the occasional overzealous groupie.
Occupation (At Start): He started in a university as soon as he had finished his military service at the age of 20, but before he could graduate, he joined a metal band. He's been in a few bands before coming to Hellblazer.
Short Bio: Heh, there isn't much that I couldn't put here that I haven't already put into my other sections. He had good grades until he began his compulsary service at 18, began to strive for an electrical engineering degree after he had left the military, and somewhere in between college and the eventual union with Hellblazer, he had a wife, a child, and eventually, a divorce.
His first band was really just an experiment with a few college friends. It was supposed to be straight up death metal, but most of his friends liked to play jazz music, so they had a very unique sound that got them a lot of attention. Eventually, though, the group drifted away, as it turned out that Danny was the only one with talent and ambition. After spending a few months without being involved in music, another friend of his asked him to join a band called Warpaint, which embodied the progressive death sound that Danny would someday carry to Hellblazer. They earned a huge underground following throughout Western Europe, but by the time they began to earn popular recognition, drugs and drama had torn the group apart, which lead to Danny moving to New York, trying to scratch the itch he had formed while playing music he loved.
