    So, kinda the inverse of the "Good Songs that Sound Bad" thread. What's a metal album you think is great that most people missed the boat on? I'll start:
  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Since I'm in the process of joining a band as a bass player I have been looking for some easy to carry and compact bass rig. The EBS Microbass 3 was announced this NAMM and I'm sold on it. I'M GETTING THAT ONE...
  3. Member Introductions
    Hey guys. I guess I'll just say a little about myself haha. So, I've been playing guitar for about 12 years now, got into metal maybe 6 years ago. I play melodic death metal, mostly. My favourite bands are At the Gates, Carcass and The Haunted. I also recently just pre ordered the limited...
  4. Musician Classifieds
    Hey guys, I'm looking for people to start an online band for a metal project. There is no specification with the genre of metal. I'm a lead guitarist and I've been playing for 4 years now. So, I need a drummer, another guitarist, a bassist and a singer (harsh and clean vocal would be cool). We...

    What do you guys think of this amp? What does it do well? Any complaints? Which bands use it?
  7. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Anybody else noticing some guys saying that a neck is "great" because they like the profile? Isn't that kinda studid, it's 100% personal perference. For me, a good neck , is based on its stability in weather condition and if it is resistant to warping etc etc. Maybe type of finish, or lack...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I guess I've been out of the loop for a bit, I didn't realize this was such a prevalent thing. I knew Kemper had some preset packs and that Fractal sold cab models, but I didn't realize that people were actually charging for plain old presets now. Like this guy: "Moke's Custom Presets" store...
  9. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    There's a guy selling one of these locally and I'm having some trouble figuring out the value and more information on the guitar. I think it's US built and koa (or mahogany?) but I can't confirm that-were there any imports with similar specs? There's an almost identical guitar on ebay right...

    OK I know this is a metal board, but figured I would post this just in case there are some other people that like Rod Stewart. I actually dig this little bit he does with different artists.

    With more and more people writing about the company maybe he will finally get a clue. Gibson Guitar Is a Remarkably Unpopular Company

    Well okay the price tag of 125 Canadian wasn't great but well worth it. So first thing I noticed was that they set it up so that as you walk into the recital hall Steve is noodling away....... instead of a Carvin he is using a Orange Rockerverb 100. I asked him about it and he just explained...

    X227 90S ERA REISSUE 7-STRING ELECTRIC GUITAR | Carvin fans have been asking for this for ages. This is pretty awesome. Gotta give Jeff Kiesel some props… he definitely listens to what people want. Hopefully we'll see a CS7 soon as well.

    As you may be aware, I may have somewhat been a tad, a wee, a little, just a tiny bit obnoxious with my heckling of Drew over the last year about his cycling. We finally got out for our first ride together today and did this: And I have to say, Drew is a damn strong rider. :yesway: Honestly...

    Seems that everybody is going for the 25W beast. I was also going to get that, but something else came up :) Good thing that I cant play for shit, otherwise people would be asking me if I am a Petrucci fan all the time, with that Axe FX II XL in the loop :)
  17. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Ive been looking at new 2x12's and the mesa is running about 650. Marshall 1936 700$+(what a joke on the marshall) Are these cabs for rockstars and well off people to buy or are they really worth the money?
  18. MG.ORG Status Updates
    Probably not bringing it back. If you got weird PM notifications, just ignore them - it's not my software, nothing I can do about it. Under a dozen people actually used it anyway.
  19. General Music Discussion
    Great show. Really impressed with the vocalists of testament and exodus for still being able to hit those notes. Anyone else catching them on their tour? Took one casual fan and one person who didn't know the bands and we all loved the show. My only complaint..... why didn't theu play electric...

    I just thought I'd point this out. Wig makers must make a fucking killing. I didn't even realize how many of them must be wearing wigs until reading Yngwie's autobiography, where the issue was brought to light in text. Big name bands like Crue probably have as many wig techs as guitar techs on...
