Hey there. I'm 14, a drummer, and decided with some friends to start up a metal band, but I just have a couple questions about the process. I know I'm only 14 so it may seem totally unrealistic but one of my goals is to get signed, even though people are constantly telling me I never will. So some questions I have are, is it better to be more complex or simple when it comes to the music itself? I wrote lyrics to the couple songs we have been experimenting with and I'm not sure how complex the music needs to be to fit with the vocals well. Also, so far I'm the only one who's actually worked on it. I write the songs and create the bones of the music, so how do I get the other people in the band to actually work? I feel like I want it more than they all do combined, and suggestions? And I know this is sorta long so if you make it this far I would really appreciate some help/answers. Keep on head-banging!
