The obligatory introduce yourself thread
So this forum has been neglected somewhat in the past couple of months. I want to make a bit more of an effort so here's the obligatory introduce yourself thread. Let us know a bit about yourself. If you're really keen post a pic too. I'll start.

I'm David. My interests are music (esp. drumming), & philosophy (esp. philosophy of mind, philosophy of science & ethics).

Apoc 06-20-2008 08:17 AM

I'm Sidney, intrested in some good metal, any style. When I've head too much metal for a while, I skip to some electro(yup i'm weirdo) Industrial is cool too.

Otherwise, I got not that much to say. I live in Ypres, Belgium.

And Dred is like the best band I've heard for a while.

Pyrogenic 06-21-2008 02:12 AM

Welcome :).

Conti 06-23-2008 09:28 AM

I'm Michael.

My main interests are music, music, music :-D Mostly metal however, i do venture off to other genres. Classical, Jazz, Rock & Hard Rock.

I also play Bass, guitar, will one day soon get around to learning Piano properly and i do some vocals too.

When i remember the other stuff i will post it.

Lena 06-23-2008 12:30 PM

Hi, Im Lena.
Ive been to all your guys gigs since you started playing live, except for one I think in december last year. I dont remember what I was doing that night. Anyway, I like alot of things, music, arts, history and other stuff. Oh, Evgeny and Mikhail, I speak Russian too! Michael Conti, I can say Mavro Skili in Greek as well as a few other well chosen phrases, like Mavro Psomi amongst other ones. Dave and Chris, I can say, "G'day mate, chuck another shrimp on the Barbe." Sorry, cant sleep.
Anyway lots of Russian Love Boys,
P.S. Eugene, dont be late to work!!!

Pyrogenic 06-23-2008 10:44 PM

Hahaha, G'DAY LENA!

Jordan90smuso 06-24-2008 03:56 AM

I'm Jordan, I play guitar, listen to metal (who would've guessed); although I do keep an open range to any music with substance.

Other interests/hobbies include, religion, economics, cult movies, working out, chilling out with mates etc etc.

If you remeber me David, we met briefly after the Psycroptic gig at the Bold Faced Stag. I just recently got into your music since then.......Its awesome.:cool:

Pyrogenic 06-24-2008 09:29 PM

Hey Jordan, yeah I remember! Man... Psycroptic were so fucking good that night... Welcome to the forum :).

Conti 06-24-2008 09:54 PM

Cheers Jordan :smile:

Jordan90smuso 06-25-2008 01:47 AM

No worries Michael. Just got Dred's EP in the mail today and haven't stopped listening to it since. I'll be looking forward to seeing you guys in August.

Fuck yeah David, Psycroptic were tight as. Got the band to sign my 'The Isle of Disenchantment' CD. Before the show I got to chat with Joe, and Cameron...they're really top blokes.

Also psyched about seeing Testament in september with Mortal Sin. As with Carcass when they tour in October.

Pyrogenic 06-25-2008 10:28 AM

Yeah, can't wait for Carcass! There have been some other great reunions/reformations recently... Atheist, Cynic, Pestilence. If only they'd all come to Aus too :>.

Pyrogenic 06-25-2008 10:31 AM

Forgive me if I asked you think already Jordan, but do you currently or have you previously played in any bands?

Evgeny 06-28-2008 03:43 AM

Evgeny - interests and hobbies are:

music (death metal and classical)
martial arts
beer and scotch
collecting swords, axes, knives and coins

Jordan90smuso 06-28-2008 06:00 AM

No worries David. :) As far as playing in bands go, I've played in a couple of school concerts with my mates doing covers. I would like to start a metal band up one day but first I would like to complete my education and develop my lead guitar skills as well as my song writing. (I've been playing for about three years)

Mikhail 06-29-2008 02:43 AM

I'm Mikhail.
My main interests are music (metal, classical, jazz, latin), guitar, piano, photography, scotch, beer, aviation. First things that come to mind...
...welcome to the DRED forum!

magoichisaika 07-21-2008 10:48 AM

I'm Elvis.
I like metal (the faster the better), marijuana and the company of good friends. Ive seen you guys live HEAPS of times, whenever theres a gig I'm pretty much there. Im in europe fight now, but when i get back home, hopefully youse will play Edifice of Tyranny at the next gig Im at, i fucken loooooooooooove that song!

Pyrogenic 08-01-2008 11:25 AM

Hey Elvis, welcome to the Dred forum!

Thanks heaps for coming to our shows man, drop us an email next time you're coming and we may be able to drop Edifice into the set list for ya ;).

davejay 08-04-2008 09:02 PM

I'm David

I've seen you guys live a few times. I am very impressed with your live performances as well as the EP you have released. Production, songwriting, and musicianship are 1st class. I find that when you are proficient in all the areas you can become as successful as you want which is why I believe the sky is the limit for Dred.

Interests: Music (been playing guitar for 4 years now), soccer, science and technology (physics and Networking), throwing a few down with some friends.

Pyrogenic 08-06-2008 06:52 AM

Hey David, welcome to the Dred forum! Cheers for your support and kind comments. It's all greatly appreciated.

Conti 08-11-2008 08:10 PM

Hey David, welcome!
Thank you for your support :-)

Aethelwine 08-16-2008 02:20 AM

Hi all my name is Amanda i'm a 24 year old female from the Western Area of Sydney.
I found out about DRED through an old friend and though I do not have the time to go to gigs at the moment and unfortunately I have not see you guys play live, from what I have heard on your myspace sounds really good.

I wish you guys all the best :)

Also this is my first time on here lolzz!!!

Pyrogenic 08-21-2008 07:50 AM

Hey Amanda, cheers for dropping by. I hope you can make it to a show soon!

mean machine 09-16-2008 05:24 AM

G'day everyone, my name's Mitch, from Melbourne, and I one of the people that runs , an Aussie metal website. I never knew about this website so know I will definitely me keeping my eye on the forums seeing as there are so many Aussie ones hosted here.

Pyrogenic 09-17-2008 09:09 AM

Thanks Pyrogenic! Hoping to go to one soon!
Take care

\ m / HailZ \ m / Evgeny, Chris, Mikhail, Michael and David you guys kick some fucken ass. Looking forward to your first Full Release album. The EP is killer. I'm from Melbourne and I help out with a Internet Radio station in the States(Los Angeles). The guy that runs the Station is a band member from Unsantified. The station is and your EP is on there and a guy from Greece pointed you guys out to me. He reckons your awesome so I ended up requesting from your EP and I was blown away by the true talent your song writing produced and the tight gutsy full steam ahead feel which you thrust forth. So I have been requesting from the EP a fair bit so you are getting listened to all round the world. DarkSoul7 has an enormous database of metal to request from and it also has a chat window on the homepage. Would be really cool to get a Band ID off you guys to add to the station so when a song of yours is played your voice over saying - G'day this is Evgeny from Dred from down under Australia and your listening to DarkSoul7 and end with a big growl or whatever you want hehehe. Send it to me and I'll FTP it to DS7 for you. Nothing better than free promotion in the USA!

Pyrogenic 10-06-2008 09:33 PM

Hey SLayTaN, welcome to the forum.

We'd be happy to organise something like that for you. Please PM your email address to me and we'll send you a clip.

SLayTaN 10-07-2008 02:36 AM

PM has been sent. Awesome of you to do this. I'll be sending it to DS7 as soon as I get it:emot-part

juicedboi 10-15-2008 01:34 AM

Names Justin, Finishing HSC at kingsgrove high, been into metal since about year 8, grunge before that. At first i wasn't that interested Dred to be honest, but as i progressed as a guitarist i really got into dred.

other interests:
martial arts
i have a B.C Rich Warlock that plays a major role in my life LoL.

hoping to come see you guys soon, at your next gig where under 18's are allowed :D

cheers guys

Grommell 11-08-2008 02:48 PM

Hey Dave + Dred, saw your gig last night at the gaelic Psycroptic show. Going in noticing a few haircuts, I wasn't expecting much from the support bands - but I gotta say you guys completely brought the metal. Killer runs, leads etc & full stage presence - I was a fan after the first song (although I noticed the Guitars didn't kick in straight away, sound guy must of had too many beers or something lol). I didn't get to see you drum much Dave due to Haley's Monstrous riser taking up all the stage real-estate, but I heard you man & it was all gravy \m/

As for me, I'm a Metal fan & Guitarist of 10 years or so. Was in non-metal bands & did the Newcastle scene for awhile- but the call of the blast just got louder & so I had to get out of it. Atm I write material as Cadavalanche (dodgy myspace here) for cheap thrills & rainy days. Other interests outside metal, mainly just tang & xbox.

Looking forward to the next Dred gig up this way, cheers for keeping it real fellas \m/
