Awesome pics man, looks like a rockin' time! You went for the Lars Ulrich china placement lol.

I checked your band's page out too. Cool songs. Reminds me of Comeback kid but I notice is one of your influences. I saw them in concert a few years ago, great melodic HC band. With Honor opened for them, another great band, have you heard of them?

That's sort of the idea. To be honest i think compared to some bands the vocals are quite easy to make out! Pretty good. I can't believe you're the same age as me and you've been playing for 13 years!

Wow there really was no need for that. You're clearly new to this forum and people who flame other users like that find themselves banned rather quickly.

Hey dude welcome, I'm pretty new here too but it's cool.

You're band sounds awesome, definitely something I could get into! Music seems well written and thought out, and your parts seem really tight :)

I like you're kit too, I'll hopefully be getting the all white pdp 805 sometime this year but in the 24" configuration. Yours looks like the 20" in the pics unless I'm wrong.

peace :P

I guess you're just unlucky. I've had a beard since i was 15 but some of my friends in my year don't even have any facial hairs and only shave a couple of times a year.




This was me when i was 16!

Really? I thought this forum was open for opnions, I've been reading a lot of post before posting my own and I've seen guys saying that didn't like a singer or whatever. I was always on the understanding that if you post something you're opening yourself up for praise and or criticism. What you're saying is only comment if you agree with the subject matter or if you like what you see or hear, correct? I think that is rather ludicrous.

He didnt ask you what kind of music you listen to, he asked for some comments on his playing, and his music as an overall band talent wise.

So very predictable. Tell whitedrummer we said what's up. It's not the criticism per se. That is, indeed, welcome. It's the attitude, which wasn't constructive. And the fact that you may not like the music, but can still post objectively about the skills displayed by all members of the band - singers and drummers alike. "You guys stink" and "that was not music" are useless comments. Perhaps try stating specifics. Apologies and "love you's" ring a little hollow when they are surrounded by insults.

Fair enough, so I'll quote the late great Buddy Rich, "There are two types of music, good and bad" and that, in my opinion, was bad, but just to be fair, I'll give it another listen.

Well guys I listened again, and you know what if It was just music without the vocal screamer I could listen for awhile. I really liked the drum sound on the video from behind the drummer, o.k am I forgiven? After all I'm just a girl, what do I know? Pesce.

I'm glad you admit to your femininity, but the last few times you were banned you were a guy.

Mark Hopkins was born in Chicago, Illinois and is a second generation Irish/Greek American. He moved to Houston, Texas at the age of five and was raised there. Mark moved to San Antonio in 1980 and began playing with The Moronics, an oldies band, in the mid-eighties -- he played with them for 10 years. While with The Moronics, Mark's 15 minutes of fame came when they played the San Antonio River Parade three years in a row, playing in front of over 100,000 people. In the years to follow, Mark played with several other local cover bands including The Wellsouls and The Remedy, performing all around San Antonio and the surrounding areas.

As a young boy, Mark was influenced musically by The Beatles and to this day maintains that “they are the best and there will never be another.” When Mark was 12 he saw a snare drum in a Sears catalogue and his drumming career had begun. His main drumming influences were Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich. Mark currently makes his music on an Ayotte North American maple kit with Zildjian and Paiste cymbals.
Sorry, I was right the first time.


Love the Simpsons picture, Mark.

That's pretty funny. I just thought Zepgirl was the "rad singer" from the B Sides Band or whatever. Nice.

Looks like he's been banned though. See him next time?

But it's not even you're opinion. You said "it's not music" which is you saying what you think is a fact rather than just the way the song makes you feel.

Do you mean Mark? Mark, I have come to find out is the original poster AND an additional poster, who has been banned from DW four times. Once as Juststickingaround, once as Madmax, once as Whitedrummer, and once again (in the same thread no less) as Zepgirl. If he comes back again, he should just name himself DWForumTroll and save Dogbreath the trouble of finding him/her.

Great drumming. Feels like it's inspired by Underoath and bands like that. Love that you drum on your socks. I did that too for a while, but I feel like I can get more power with my shoes on. (gravity?).

Keep on rocking man, you have potential :-).
