I know this is a big :dgaf: for most of us here, but thought it might interest some. I love Wes' playing, particularly his ability to seriously cop Dime's vibe, which is no easy feat. Just a shame he's never been in a band I can dig musically.

The stream of marketing bullshit coming out of his mouth from 2:00 is hilarious. :lol:

I used to like this guy's playing but apparently he's just a djenter now?

Dude it's a video made by Seymour Duncan, what did you expect? This is a company that have had like two amazing pickups for the best part of 40 years, and the rest is all garbage variations of said two pickups that they have to try and peddle to us :lol: If it's not a JB or a Distortion I'm seriously not interested.

Re- Wes' playing - He's never come across as someone who has a strong musical identity of his own, so if he's djenting now I guess it's just because that's the flavour of band he's currently the hired-gun for? He kinda walks that line of techy metally djenty Keith Merrow-core, and hyper-technical death metal a la The Faceless. I honestly don't know why he isn't huge though, guy's a monster player.

I really liked his stuff in black crown initiate. As for what was said earlier I totally agree that most Duncan stuff is just variations of the JB and Distortion and not necessarily any better.

I personally dig the "I just smoked a pound of weed, you can fuck right off" vibe he has but I can never defend a fellow grey if he sold out and now plays puberty fuel music.

tbh I actually think the video sounds pretty good, obviously its post processed to all fuck.

That aside, did anyone else notice that all of the speech seemed odly in time with the music and find it reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallly fucking weird?!

Also I get the impression that may have been Duncan Jrs first ever swear word

:edgasm:

I once saw the words a chick spoke to me at lunch as a beautiful arrangment of musical notes spoken by an Angle but eventually came to know that awkward shreak of a she-devil in a whole different light. I hope Wes isnt a evil seductress waiting to rob us of our souls, he needs better legs to do that.

Happy to see all the success Wes has had. Nice guy, one of us and had a lot of shitty drama in his life, rebooted and became a relevant musician. Wish he still came around but glad for him all the same.

Was really hoping it was going to be essentially a 7 string l500xl without the plastic tabs, but nooooo, Wes needed his mids to be "agressive". :pissed:

Does look pretty neat, though.

WH is legit in my book, dude's a Marine. I don't particularly enjoy the genres and acts he's involved with, not to my tastes, but he only got involved with the whole djent thing after coming back from active duty in Iraq, so generally speaking I wouldn't give him shit about being involved with the djent kid crowd. :lol:
