Hello,
I'ma young metalhead, who is in a search for a band. I don't find a lot of metalheads around me, but I want to make up a band. I play alto saxophone (I know not really a metal instrument, but I love the sound, I've been playing it for about 7 years now, and have finished Music school with it). I want to find members (drummer, bass, guitar, singer) to play with me. I am from Slovenia and really I don't know where else I can share this things. I used, twitter, Metal Mansion etc but noone even shared it. I don't want to use facebook, bc my parents can see it and it's a little bit embarassing (because they don't like metal). I don't know what can I do. There are not a lot of metal gigs around here so it's kinda hard.

Please share your thoughts

I'd recommend Craigslist or Bandmix, I don't know how popular those are where you live though. You might have better luck joining an existing band than making one from scratch but it'll definitely still be rough considering your instrument. Maybe consider learning a more typical metal instrument as well.

Good luck

There's a musician seeks musician here on the forum as well. Its a sub-forum within this musician sections. You may find someone there as well but what you're looking for is very specific. A metal band with a saxophone is very rare. A metal band with a saxophone from Slovenia is even rarer.

@Insin
thank you, yes I know it's pretty rare, and I try to teach myself guitar, but it would be a waste to get away from sax, because im playing it for 7 years.

Well I went to see those two.... Bandmix is just for USA, so I cannot use it and Craiglist doesnt allow me to search for Slovenian band members..... I try to teach myself guitar, but I love the sound of sax. I know it will be hard and it's rare to have sax in metal, but there are few metal bands with sax... like I really love the sound. most of existing bands around my town are old guys ( i mean 40+) so I need to find someone quite young. Thanks for help though
