    I always loved the NV, its a shame they stopped making it under ESP (you can still find a grassrots one built to Kerry's spec). I'd buy one of the Kerry sigs in a heartbeat if ESP re-released them.

    I think they already tried... But accidentally got Chris Canella instead.

    The minute B.C. Rich can no longer and/or don't want to make Kerry custom shop guitars built to his specs, he'll probably switch to ESP. That's the main reason he left B.C. Rich in the first place in the 1990's. The story goes, as Kerry said in a interview, someone at B.C. Rich called him up wanting to build him a guitar. Kerry requested that it be a neck-thru, like all his other B.C. Riches. The guy says, "umm, we're not really doing that right now" and Kerry says, "well, call me when you can". And the guy never called back. Really weird that someone from B.C. Rich saying that they can't make a neck-thru guitar. :scratch: They actually did build the guitar he requested but they sold it to a store. At the time, B.C. Rich were going out of business so they didn't care what they did to who. That did not make Kerry happy with the company and he just went with ESP at the time.

    For boosts, Pat uses a Keeley-modded Metal Zone and Rob uses a Maxon

    Also, Pat uses a Triple Rec and I believe Rob switched to a Mark V

    That certainly seems to be the case live, but Pat does a lot of the recording (rhythm and lead) on his gear in the studio. From the documentaries that I have seen over the years, it seems like the person that writes the song generally records the parts. That helps them move along as quickly as possible. And seeing as how Pat does a lot of the writing, I am guessing we are hearing him (and his gear) more often than not.

    This band has seriously gotten better with age. Their last few albums are incredible. Awesome player too.

    Yeah I think they split duties more in the past (Kill seemed to have been shared fairly equally), but it looks like on Torture and a Skeletal Domain, Pat tracked most of the rhythm guitars.

    ive seen the studio video of frantic disembowelment probably a hundred times and the power chord bit in the middle still doesnt strike me as something that should be possible

    Frantic Disembowelment is so, so sick.

    :lol: From a Metal Injection interview with Alex:

    Kit: Oh, that’s totally fine by me. Speaking of songs that sprint, when was the last time you played “Frantic Disembowelment” in a live set?

    Alex: We played it only once live. George never got the vocals down. Believe it or not, out of everybody in the band (laughs), we busted our asses off, and then he was like ‘Ah man, I’m having trouble with the vocal lines’, so we just never ended up doing it live. And one night, when we toured with Kataklysm, Napalm Death, Goatwhore, and…who else was there…Macabre? Anyways, it was 2004, and in Pittsburgh George had some kind of lung infection. He had to go to the hospital and everything. So we played the show anyways without a singer, and were like ‘why don’t we play it tonight since George won’t do it? This is our only chance.’ So that was the only time we played it live. It went pretty well, but my forearms were definitely Popeyed out by the end. It’s a lot of work. There are a lot of hard chops in that one.

    And while we are at it, here is a sick cover.

    I thought some of you guys may like this. I believe this is Pat O'Brien's second U.S. custom shop Jackson V. The end points look like the ones Jeff Loomis has on his Schecter V. :cool:

    Interesting guitar. The body looks very thick, much thicker than a standard Jackson V shape..

    That's cool he's gone up to 26.5" scale. The Fishman's a bit of a surprise but with the amount of people switching over not really. What's the difference between a Double Rhoads and a King V?
