    Hey everyone, my name is Eugene or Gene either one works. I've been playing guitar for maybe 12 years but seriously for about 3 or 4, but with that still I should be a lot better haha. My influences are John Petrucci, Matt Heafy, Brian Haner Jr., Howard Jones, Chris Clancy, Chris Motionless, Scott Ian, just some of many influences I have for guitar or vocals or just writing music in general. Outside from music I enjoy spending time with my family, playing video games, and drawing. I'm currently working on releasing and EP with my band, Kaguya (Yes from Naruto), and starting up my own clothing band, BloodDrunk Clothing. So if you're interested just stay in contact.

    Thank you for excepting me into the Sevenstring community I hope to learn a lot and hopefully teach others along the way. Cheers!!!!

    P.S. I suck at writing posted so forgive me if it sounds weird lol

    Welcome!

    Sacramento is my hometown. I remember there being a really solid metal scene there back when I was in high school. Club Retro still around? The Boardwalk? Conducting From the Grave and All Shall Perish there back in like 2008-09 is still one of my all time favorite shows :metal:

    Hi!

    I've spend some time in Sac. Cool town. Nice scene there.

    What does your band sound like?

    Awesome I like seeing that there's other people from here. From my understanding Club Retro is still alive but we've gotten more clubs lately like Holy Diver, awesome place. I always wanted to see Conducting From the Grave but they're on their last tour I believe. :deathm:

    Yeah it's a pretty cool place a lot of people said it sucks but you gotta go out there and look for it. My band sounds a tipical metalcore band but without the breakdowns I try to avoid that especially since I gotta sing and play guitar. :deathm:

    Sadly Conducting has been broken up for a while now. One of the guitarists has another project called Wastewalker which is cool, but missing some of the magic CFTG had.

    I'll have to check out Holy Diver next time I'm up there, based on the name alone :metal:
