This project will result in a 3 to 5 song radio quality demo CD.
Our goal is to create the most professional sound that we can. We have already booked a 10 hour recording session with the renowned Rob Rebeck at Chapman Recording and Mastering for October 15th of this year.
Rob Rebeck has worked with bands like Korn, Origin and Black Oxygen at Chapman Studios.
A demo CD is a band's portfolio. We want to start making some noise in Columbia and beyond, and in order to book shows and make contacts in the industry we have to have a professional way of showing what we can do.
The moment our demo is completed, we will be madly working to book shows in Columbia, Kansas City and St. Louis, as well as attempting to make contacts in the recording industry.
Justin Hendrix - The heart and soul of Cost of Desire. The hardest working person I know. He writes the music, houses the rehearsals and shreds the axe.
Darren "Beazl" Beasley - The only man in the band who can keep a proper tempo. Beazl's drums are the reason we rock so hard...
Shaun Armbruster - Cost of Desire's sex appeal...well at the very least he writes some of the sexiest bass lines I've ever heard.
Eric Merritt - Eric is the man with the hair, the local music knowledge, and he is the best storyteller around. He rocks out on Rhythm Guitar.
Michael Kramps - That's me. I've got the easiest job in the band. I just listen to some of the best rock music in Columbia and sing as loud as I can to hold down the melodies.
