Walking Corpse Syndrome is committed to finding the best
vocalist possible. As such, we figure that it won't be a short or
easy process. What does that mean for our fans? We have shows
booked until May. Hopefully, you'll still come out to support us,
but you may have to see some instrumental sets. But you might also
see one or a few different vocalists on a given night. We apologize
in advance for the level of sucktitude this might cause.
To our aspiring vocalists: we're putting out an invitation to
anybody and everybody to come sing for us. We're not saying we want
a singer, a screamer, or both. Walking Corpse Syndrome is moving in
a new direction. We still love the dark metal sound that we've
cultivated, but we're exploring the boundaries of where this sound
can go. The songs are becoming more sophisticated. The sonic
textures are growing more nuanced. And the heavier parts are
becoming heavier. We're no longer in love with the gothic look
we've been rocking these last five years, so please don't think you
shouldn't audition just because you don't wear all black.
We're not exactly sure what sound we're looking for, so we want
to hear from everyone, male or female, young or old, and not
necessarily even metal singers. We only ask that you be at least 18
years old since some of our venues have age restrictions.
Here are the basic steps for the audition process:
1. Learn one of our old songs. We'd prefer either
"Madness". Those videos
include the lyrics in the notes section. We'd like to hear your
interpretation of the song based on the existing lyrics.
2. Write lyrics to one of our new songs. We'll share with you
some very rough tracks of two songs that we've currently written.
These two songs offer a good contrast of the different sounds we
like to explore. We'd like to hear what you can do with these two
3. We don't expect the first audition to be a home run. But
if it seems like we might share the same goals, and you seem to be
on the right track, we'll arrange for a follow up audition. At that
point, we'd be looking at improvement and consistency.
4. If you're still down at this point, email
so we can share the new tracks and arrange an audition time.
