Mine name is Sam and...I'm an alcoholic.
I'm Sam, I play guitar for 'Violence is Golden' - a groove metal/hard rock band from the cheap seats of oxford. About 5 months ago got asked to cover their guitarist for a few gigs, now a permanent member.
Shifted over the this forum to get a better view on gear from like minded metal heads, as opposed to the P&W and blue players going for the beautiful cleans with 8 delays, 6 reverbs, and all 12 od the most 'transparent' boosts available.*
so thats me
* I joke, i love the OTT boards and madness ambient swells, and wizardy of players who sound pristein through a slightly crunched fender twin. But they dont always appreciate the need for tubes being driven loud and saturated, and how a 'screaming lead' needs to scream more than an angry looking bald bloke growling away his vocal chords!
