Fleshcrawl Seeking Bass Player

Fleshcrawl is currently seeking a bass player to replace Tobz. The band states:

Since our longtime bass player Tobz quit the band some time ago, we are looking for a new person handling the deep notes. Apart from above-board playing abilities, creativity, and being a cool guy, you should - of course - be totally into death metal, have power (good stage performance!), time, and be 100% determined. All tryouts will take place close to Ulm (Laupheim) in Germany.

If you fit the description above and have the guts, send an e-mail to --> ImNOTaWimp@fleshcrawl.de or snailmail to --> FLESHCRAWL, Finkenweg 17, D-89257 Illertissen, Germany
