Chapter 1: Liam & Kieran's Super Awesome Electro Metal Band Thing...
Back in late 2014 Liam (a mate of mine from college) and i had an idea for a Electro Metal band. We're both influenced by bands like Korn, Slipknot, Alestorm, Nine Inch Nails and Rob Zombie as well as Dubstep and EDM acts like The Prodigy, Skrillex, Noisia, Knife Party, Pendulum, Kill the Noise, Xilent and Tristam... We also wanted to use instruments which were not commonly used in metal like the Banjo, Ukulele, Stylophone and Theremin.

Around that time i just discovered the steampunk sub culture, i discovered bands like Steam Powered Giraffe, Abney Park, The Clockwork Dolls, The Cog is Dead, Dr. Steel and The Men Who Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing. I was strangely attracted to the steampunk aesthetic and victorian sci-fi as a whole thanks to an anime called Last Exile which i was also watching around that time. We thought it would be a great idea to mix electro metal with the steampunk aesthetic and lyrical themes... We eventually named the project The Æthervox Machine...

However the project hasn't gone any further than the idea (and a few song ideas). We lack instruments, proper recording equipment (mics, cables, audio interfaces, daws ect), costumes, cameras to shoot the videos and band members. I've been procrastinating way too much over this past year and think it's about time to get the project properly going. I'm starting to browse Ebay for some kind of Midi keyboard/controller and other misc equipment for a low price. Any recommendations for low priced but relatively decent quality audio equipment that we could consider?

I also had the idea that we could go down the crowdfunding route, however since we wouldn't have anything to offer the backers in return it may not work. 

Damn capitalism... money really sucks dunnit!
