    Be glad for that packing style, UPS/FedEx destroy shit all the time, better to be overpacked than open the box and have a broken amp, :D

    How does it sound ? :O

    I feel like the guy that packed my amp should be literally rewarded with a generous tip lol or a raise of some sort

    I have one of those myself, for the grand price of hook a brother up free. My 5150 was dead in the shop, he was trying to get rid of it, I did him a favor by taking it off his hands. Cool amp. :metal:

    I heard from solid source that guitarist demands ENGL Powerball head for his live performance these days.

    GUITAR WORLD: This is the band’s 15th anniversary. How does it feel to have been around for so long under the Decapitated banner?

    VOGG: It's awesome!!! I mean for me, it's half of my life, and this band was always No. 1 for me. I'm happy to have Decapitated again and be on stage after what happened in 2007. Now it is like a new beginning, and I have a totally new lineup for this band, but it is still better to be under the Decapitated banner than under any different name.

    How difficult was it for you to decide to carry on the band without Vitek?

    That was one of the hardest decisions in my life. Vitek was my brother and my best friend. He was such a nice guy and one of the best drummers I have ever seen. To play with him was a pure pleasure and something very, very special. After the accident, I was devastated and I couldn't imagine to even play music again and play with somebody else. Right now, I play with Kerim “Krimh” Lechner, and he is very good, but for me, it's still weird to play without Vitek. But I need to accept this, accept what happened. I think Kerim was the best choice for what I wanted to do – to play again.

    Have the fans been supportive of your choosing to continue the band?

    To be honest, the fans gave a lot of support to me right after the accident. They were a huge help for Covan’s family as well, through making benefit shows and placing donations for him and for Vitek's wife and daughter. There were so many shows over the world, and for all this, I want to thank again those people who helped us in those days. My decision about coming back to the stage was supported even more by my girlfriend and my closer family; also Vitek's wife.

    What was your gear set-up like for the recording of Carnival Is Forever?

    This is everything I used for this album: 6-string Dean ML Custom Shop, 6-string Gibson Shred V, ESP 7-string Custom Shop Seth (Behemoth) signature model. Amps: Crate Excalibur, a very old solid-state amp, probably older than me :). A Bogner Ubershall for rhythm guitars. Solos I did on an Eiesel Herbert. For clean guitars, I used a VHT Pitbull with a Marshall Valvestate. Cabinets: Mesa Boogie and Ashdown. Strings: Ernie Ball .12 to .56 and .10 to .52. Cables: Laboga. Effects: DD3 Boss, Whammy - Digitech, Bad Horsie - Vai pedal, Eventide effects pre-amp. Intune picks. EMG pickups.

    Do you have a piece of gear you would consider your “secret weapon”?

    Not really, but this Crate Excalibur head is for sure something I didn't expect I would use for the new record. I had so many cool heads to use, but Crate had the biggest balls … heh heh. This head is about 30 years old but still can kick ass.

    I'm confused, if they used an Uberschall for rhythms, Herbert for leads, and a a Pitbull/Valvestate for cleans, where exactly does the Excalibur fit in?

    Congrats either way though, if this sounds anything like the VH150 or any of the variants, thats right up my alley tone-wise. :yesway:

    As promised

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, there are two mesas and one mesa one engl cab. Both with two mics. Mesa cab is 100% left in the PA and Engl is 100% right.
    He uses ABY switch to control the sound like on Post Organic song, left-right-left-right...

    BUT, I'm sure this is not what he uses on rehearsals and more important gigs. These mesas were on stage all the time.

    This is almost as bad as david vincents pizza/towel picture. That's a hell of a beer gut and very close to dropping his shorts. :lol:

    I am the shipping manager in a guitar store, and every package that I send out of here, be it the store's or my own stuff, gets packed just like that, maybe even more. UPS/Fedex tend to destroy a lot of stuff. Security! :agreed: Decapitated rules... But I remember reading that interview and wondering the same thing. Nice score!
