    Sounds awesome, and promising. Can't wait until we have a president who gets behind this kind of thing again https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/19/business/heliogen-solar-energy-bill-gates/index.html "The breakthrough means that, for the first time, concentrated solar energy can be used to create the...

    Go buy it. SG is a trooper and his vocals for his brief time in Onslaught are some of my favorite ever, not to mention Grim Reaper and Lionsheart. He's lost a little bit of high end, but his voice has still aged way better than most singers from that era. Certainly awesome to see he's still...

    It looks like my TC Electronics Sentry died. I'm pretty sure it's my fault... I think I fried it by haphazardly unplugging something else, and the power cable shorted to ground, and toasted it. I may get another one, but what other gates are ya'll using? I'd prefer something with a loop on...

    I have been on an At The Gates kick lately. Found online that they used a HM-2 into a Metal Zone into a clean amp. This was interesting to me and I wanted to give it a go in the plugin world. https://soundcloud.com/henryschreck/at-the-gates-blinded-by-fear-using-plugins HM-2 is FREE here...

    FINALLY got to see At the Gates, and they did not disappoint. Went to this show to see them. Played material mostly from their 2 latest albums. Tomas still has lots of energy. Awesome. Behemoth. Meh.... I'm just not really into them. A couple of their songs were crushing, their drummer...

    I just picked up a Rocktron Guitar Silencer for real cheap, and TBH, it doesn't jazz me too much. Running it in an X formation, and it works? But it's a pain. Do any of you dudes have any experience with this pedal? I'm gonna give it a week or so to impress me, but in the meantime, do you guys...

    I've struck out on this in a couple other forums, including a Dean one. So I'll give it a shot here. This Dean is a 2011. I know earlier ones (2008-2010 at least) have Licensed Floyd Rose. I know newer ones have Floyd Rose Specials. Mine has this one. Totally void of visible identification. Odd?

    One of my all-time favourite riffs! I think Charlie got pretty close, though I've only had one listen through so far. I shall have to have a go with the backing track when I've learnt the rest of the riffs...

    Ever heard this version of Cemetery Gates before? Having a lot of fun with the Fishman Triple Play Wireless guitar controller. Sound is omnisphere

    I'm re-working my pedalboard and trying to figure something out - hoping you guys can give me some guidance. Here are the pedals I'm working with: Boss Tuner TS9 HM2 NS-2 noisegate MXR Micro Chorus Flashback X4 Joyo 6 band EQ ISP Decimator Here's what I'm thinking currently (effects loop in...

    Richard Christy came onstage to announce this at the Vallenfyre/Sabaton/Amon Amarth show in NYC this past Saturday (which was awesome, btw), and VIP bundle tickets went on sale yesterday. I usually don't spring for those but it's $40 for the ticket, a shirt, some other swag, and you get to skip...

    Title track from the new album. Sounds about exactly how you'd expect an ATG song in 2014 to sound. Pretty cool mix of their Slaughter of the Soul sound and their older material. :metal:

    i cannot stand A7X but there is no denying the fact that this guy can play :yesway:

    Just curious about noise gates. Exactly what purpose do they serve? Are they mainly used when playing gigs (live)? When I'm practicing at home I notice a lot of hiss type sound coming through my amp. Would a noise gate stop that? Any info would be appreciated.
  18. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Is the ISP Decimator the only one worth while or are there others just as good. I hear a lot of bad stuff about the Boss Noise Gate and some people like their Noise Suppressor, MXR has a bunch as well but I'm not keen on the differences between them and also my signal chain is as follows...

    Hey Guys, We worked really hard on recording/mixing and mastering this all ourselves. This is our debut release and I'd love to hear some feedback on everything (songwriting, playing, mix etc). Don't forget it's FREE! Hollow World

    Just wondering how others pick the main riff? I straight alternate pick starting with a downstroke.
