Good morning gents,
My name is Ryan and I have recently decided to get back into the world of interweb guitar related forums. I am armed to the teeth and ready to do battle with the trolls lurking within these walls.
I am currently working in corporate IT for one of the major casino companies here in the city of sin and love all the extremely metal debauchery that goes on here. I have been playing guitar since 8th grade and my first axe was an RG7421 during the Korn and nu-metal phenomena (gross). My taste in music has diversified quite a bit over the years, but metal will always be my favorite genre to both play and listen to. I have an Ibanez RG770DX reissue and a new KxK Sii-7 on the way, which I will be sharing in a NGD thread soon. I just got an Axe-FX II that I play through a pair of Yamaha HS8s for apartment jamming and recording. My last tube amp was a Diezel Herbert, which I sold before moving to Nevada to cover moving costs. I'm finally getting a quality rig back together and it feels great.
If you are curious, here is what is on my spotify playlist at the moment: Thy Art is Murder, Uneven Structure, Behemoth, Plini, Gojira, Pallbearer, The Ocean, Skyharbor Eclipse, Everytime I Die, Suffocation, Decapitated, Between the Buried and Me, Rings of Saturn, Iced Earth, Cynic and Guthrie Govan.
