    So I'm moving to Phoenix and its a big jump. It's nice but still it's a way to look back on what I've had for 18 years. Through all the pain misery of being a small town gay man it was also freeing and incredible. Well that part is done and I'll hold back a tear while driving away knowing that Flagstaff molded me and for that I'm thankful. And to those who take time to look unto me thank you too!

    Cool man. Yeah I write a lot of blackened thrash (well thrash depending on your opinion). Hmm yeah I'll check out what you do. I'm looking for musicians in Phoenix so hopefully something well come of it.

    Yeah Flagstaff is gorgeous. But Phoenix is where I need to be right now. I really wanna try the east coast eventually!

    woah, blackened thrash huh, that sounds brutal. my style is technical death metal` spanish, classical influence, i use b flat tuning mostly and i play like cannibal corpse and morbid angel sounding stuff. phoenix is awesome, i lived there for a little while and worked at a karate dojo on n 16th street.. definitely check out the national ufo convention they have there since 2011 m/

    Very cool, I like your burial and ceremony song, I hear some spanish flamenco influence in your guitar playing, we definately play similar sounding stuff (black metal sounding and spanish, speed metal etc). Yeah I'm in a band right now but I'll keep you in mind, maybe I will record a clip of my playing style and put it on soundcloud. heres a recent cover song I made:

    Why do you need to be in Phoenixicon_question.gif What is so special about that cityicon_question.gif I wouldn't consider the Phoenix Metro Area or the city itself cool due to the sad fact that the folks there keep reelecting that hateful fascist for county sheriff. Granted smaller towns have their limitations and drawbacks but not all smaller towns are closed minded and ultra conservative. Big major cities have their drawbacks and limitations as well. They are not all what they are cracked up to be. Just some food for thought.

    Seriously trying. The musicians in Flagstaff were not that great so bigger talent pool more chance to get some decent creation!
