    My pick. Second best song on Iommi's first solo one. (Although Seventh Star was supposed to be his first solo one, and as all mega Sabbath fans know) Only because I am still dying for a whole album of Ian Astbury and Iommi. So anthemic.

    Whole show: Vai's tone and playing on SOTT were the best he's ever sounded. Fantastic band lineup, great songwriting and absolutely monstrous tone that still sounds modern today. Not to take anything away from his playing on the DLR albums (which were fantastic) but Whitesnake-Vai really...

  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Lately I've been seeing so many people trying hard to be Pete Thorn on guitar forums and subreddits. These huge 20 pedal rigs with loops, cables everywhere, and then their amp pedal in front or off to the side. Most of these look like a train wreck and all I can think of is: 1) how long is this...

    I was looking for something for the Guess the Riff thread and came across this video time capsule of awesomeness. :metal:

    BEHRINGER BUYS TC | AudioTechnology Magazine You'll see my pre-Behringer era G-Force in the FS section soon. I'm going to sell it for like $2K and buy 8 of the new plastic-cased G-Forces coming out soon. Really, though, this bums me out. I'm sure with the resources they'll be able to R&D a lot...

    Rafa Melandi Metazz Metal Jazz Motorhead Slayer Metallica | The Escapist This is pretty cool. I did a major project on Saul Bass (the guy who's work is mimicked here) in my graphics design degree so I'm really enjoying these. Now I wanna go design some myself. :lol:

    Wirelessly posted (:yesway:) http://www.nerdist.com/2014/08/grant-imahara-kari-byron-and-tory-belleci-to-leave-mythbusters/ Interested to see what the new direction for the show is. A decade is a long time for TV, but the show is such an institution and inspiration that this still makes me...

    When you had to be part of an "esoteric group" to own a C/J.

    Of making awesome music instead instead of impressing dudes on internet forums with ugly guitars with necks that look like 2x4s. Seriously though, all kidding aside, this album has been ruling my face lately. Awesome, awesome guitars on it.

    I'm looking to buy one of them to see if I dig or not, only got Cavalera-Sepultura records up to now. Thoughts?

    Dramatic entrance popular around here? My name is Jasper and I am a newbie on these forums. Not so new to metal though. Though I am more of a specialist with my tastes in the vast sub genera ocean of metal. Typically I enjoy only the melodic side of the metal sub genera Metal-core. I dont care...
  14. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I put 10s on my Strat this afternoon. I've used 11s on my 6s and 10s on my 7s for years now, but finally I just had to bite the bullet and drop down a gauge. Two reasons - one, I'm working way more, so my guitar practice has basically been "15-30 minutes tops a couple weeknights a week, and...

    "Nuclear Yellow" Kramer Striker FR424, one of the early MusicYo models. Also comes with EVH D-Tuna. NOTE: I don't know when or how it happened, as there is no other damage to the guitar, but the threaded piece onto which you would normally screw a trem arm is missing. Baffled. Love this...
  17. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    At every level gear is head and shoulders above where it was years ago. Entry level gear like Line 6 and Roland (micro-cube) seriously kills the pignose and Crate amps we had to deal with as kids. There are new innovations in tube amps every year, with great tube amps starting at about $600...

    All of the talk about Metallica's new album has had me listening to Load and Reload the last couple of days to see if they really were bad albums or not. Load in particular has always been one I'd never listened to much. Basically, what they should've done is just record the best songs off of...
