It seems difficult being the sole person who wants to keep a project going after a previous lineup departs. I am not a very social person so I have the framework for an album but no album. Any ideas how to find musicians who would want to be in a grindcore or depressive black metal project? See my thing is that I like to be completely separated from the other musician(s) as I have trouble being around people. I'm fine paying for the album and paying their share of it, but I cannot talk to people due to what is likely high functioning autism. How did you guys find bandmates?

mainly do internet based and that's just from talking with other musicians about stuff and bands and it kinda goes from there. locally it was always talking with people at shows and comes from that or from them knowing other people who are looking to form something. I don't know it was always very easy for me and still is.

have you just considered opting to do internet based recording and forego the whole band and full practice routine?
I just do stuff.

It can take a long time if you're not social. Most people in bands met their bandmates at shows or via word of mouth from friends. I'd recommend writing some stuff solo and fill it out using session musicians, and then use the finished product to recruit around locally. That approach works for a lot of people.
