    Opinions on the 1980's Ibanez RoadStar II Series?

    Let me preface this by saying that I haven't bought a six-stringed guitar in almost a decade, and am way out-of-the-loop on six-strings. Recently, I was offered a 1986 Ibanez RoadStar II RG450BK, but I haven't gotten a chance to toy around with it yet, and haven't made the purchase. Does anyone...

    Post Rock Thread

    Searched, and couldn't find any dedicated post rock thread, so I figured, hell, there's gotta be more fans of post rock than me on this board. What's the best post rock out there right now (other than the obvious Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Ros, etc.)? I'm a big fan...

    Need advice to safely repair my tube amp's standby switch

    Okay, long story short, when I was in my old band, I left my live rig at our drummer's house (our practice space), and came back one day to find that his older brother had broken my standby switch, and my amp no longer turns on because of this. I know that tube amps are dangerous to work on...

    Ice Hockey | "The Way It Is Now" (FFO: Alta, Lord Snow, Converge)

    The Way It Is Now So, I'm not particularly into the genre (I guess when people call metal "screamo," it's a real thing, and I never explored it except bands that these guys listen to, only really liked Alta), but these guys are a local group that I'm rather fond of. A friend of mine used to be...

    Kings' Restless Hearts EP, melodic hardcore FFO: TGI, FTFD, MisSigs

    Kings These guys are good friends of mine, from my hometown. They recently released their first EP, and it's available as a "name your price" download. If you guys are active in the Illinois/Iowa hardcore scene, you might have seen them. They're great on record, and live, and they're all great...

    Can I change the drum samples in the EZDrummer VST?

    So, I've been using FL Studio 10 Producer Edition for quite some time, usually to experiment with electronic music, or sometimes to play through PODFarm quietly. Of late, I've also been using the EZDrummer VST in hopes of recording a few songs all on my own. However, I can't stand some of the...

    A question about Veil of Maya's effects?

    Do you guys have any idea what sort of effects were used in the intros of these songs? I'm working on a song in a similar vein as a live intro for my band, and I'm really trying to get an effect similar to this for it.

    DI Recording Tips [FL Studio/POD Farm/Djent/Prog/Deathcore]

    Okay, so my band is getting prepared to begin recording a self-produced EP. I know enough from my days working the soundboard in a theatre to mix my tracks once their recorded, but does anyone have any tips for a good DI tone? I'm tracking through an M-Audio Fast Track USB for guitars, basses...

    Getting used to my 8-string

    I don't know what it is, but I've had my Septor Elite 828 for about 2 months now, and I just can't seem to feel at home on it, when compared to my Interceptor 725. I'm used to the longer scale and 8th string now, but it seems that my playing is just less fluid, and writing material doesn't come...

    My band is recording our first EP...

    Okay, so I'm 18, and I play bass in a somewhat generic, ABR style, metalcore band (I like the music, it's not what I primarily listen to or write, but I really do enjoy it, so what? :P). In a month or so, we're going into the studio for the first time to record an EP. Is there any advice for...

    NGD: Agile Septor Elite DNC 828

    Well, when custom orders for Agiles opened up in October, I had the money, I wanted an 8-string, I love Agile, and I didn't have a lot of other options, so I figured I'd make one. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that my order shipped on Tuesday, rather than in April as projected, and ecstatic...

    Obey The Brave (New band with Alex Erian of Despised Icon - New song)

    So, Alex Erian is in a new band, with some former members of Blind Witness, called Obey the Brave. They're a metalcore band, but they seem to be on the more hardcore end of metalcore than anything. Anyway, they're awesome, and it's great to see Alex in a band once again :hbang:

    I Set My Friends On Fire's New Album

    ಠ_ಠ What happened? They have more in common with grindcore and deathcore than dance music now. I actually like this. A lot. Please note: A friend of mine is really into their first album, and I really wasn't, but he showed me this, because he thought I would enjoy it. I do :metal:

    Tonal Effects of Retubing?

    So, I've had the Jet City JCA20H head (3x 12AX7's in the preamp, 2x EL84's in the power amp) for about a year now, and the tubes are about gone. I need to retube and rebias the amp, and was wondering if there was a way to retube it with a specific brand of other tubes, or switch the tubes out...

    Music in this vein?

    I know I'm not giving you a lot to go on, but all I really have right now in this vein is the maudlin of the Well Interludes and Darkest Hour's acoustic instrumentals. My dog just died, and I'm just looking for really soothing, beautiful, instrumental acoustic pieces (I'm just not in the mood...

    Reflux - Tech Metal Supergroup From The Past

    So, an old, but GREAT, technical metalcore band I found, released on Prosthetic Records in 2004, they're called Reflux. They feature Tosin Abasi (Animals As Leaders/TRAM) on guitar, Evan Brewer (The Faceless/ex-Animosity) on bass, Ash Avildsen (Sumerian Records founder) on vocals, and Vinnie...

    New Job For A Cowboy Song: 'Misery Reformatory' Streaming

    I didn't see a thread for this already, so I figured I'd post it (a little late, I found it almost a week ago). I'm really liking the new sound. Musically, a little TBDM sounding, and vocally, Jonny's sounding more like he did on the Fleshwrought record, which I think is awesome. And dat solo...

    Download Two Free EPs by Valiant!

    Not my band, but they're locals from a few miles out in Rockford, which has a pretty healthy hardcore scene, as opposed to the dying deathcore scene in the Quad Cities. They've posted both of their EPs, The All Seeing Eye, and Spectator for free on Facebook: Download Our EP, "The All Seeing...
