    Gatdamn this ViK sound huge!

    Seriously, this guitar records shockingly well

    This is a new mix of mine, I decided to do a cover of a couple of riffs from 7 Horns 7 Eyes' track "Vindicator" as it features one of my all-time favourite mixes.

    Obviously the musical content is not my work, if you like this please go support the band. They have just released their EP "Convalescence" and will be putting their album out soon on Century Media Records. The original track can be heard here:

    7 HORNS 7 EYES - Vindicator by basickrecords on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free

    The guitar tone is courtesy of the Axe-FX Ultra, using the 5150 amp model for rhythm and the USA Lead 2 amp model for leads, all with stock cab IRs. Drums are Superior 2.0 (Mostly the "Evil Drums" expansion), and the bass track is Trillian.

    That sounds amazing man! The low end chugs are so clear!

    That second 80's sounding bit is so damn awesome dude. You need to get yourself some sparkly scarfs and some eyeliner, and do an album of glam-shred pronto.

    Thanks guys

    Yeah, the low end is so clear, the guitar has a snappy attack but with a lovely deep resonance that makes those low notes purr so nicely. In case you can't tell, I'm in love

    That sounds so good. I can't really say anything that I haven't before, but I will anyways. I want a Vik so bad!

    Very, very nice sound, man. All of that sounds great, not just the guitar.
