My name is Brett Barkhouse and I've been playing guitar for about 4-5 years, mostly rhythm and easier leads. I'm in a band. Were mostly a metal/hard rock band. We call ourselves "Trendkill" but that name is already being used, so we need another one. I suggested "Oath To Kill" to the guys and they seemed to like it.

Our singer was fired from the band by our bass player [Justin] pretty much for no absolute reason other than he was pissed off at the moment. Wtf.

Were slowly progressing as a band. Our other guitarist showed up to a recent practice and we are currently writing a pretty awesome metal ballad.

We currently have The Mansion completed, we just need to get a singer and touch up the drums. I promise I'll post the full song asap when it's finished.

Bio:  I'm pretty good at rhythm guitar, but I'm not that strong in lead guitar, so I'm trying to learn. I've been playing for about 4-5 years since i was 10-11 years of age. Since I grew up playing AC/DC, I'm not the best lead guitarist... no offence to AC/DC, as they are one of my all time favorite bands. I have a stronger interest in rhythm and easy leads, anyway.
