    NGD: Reverend Charger

    Been wanting a new more "rock" oriented six for a little and I fell in love with these Reverend guitars. This one's got enough tele in it to have the "classic" look, but it weird and unique enough to be it's own thing. The contours, neck finish, jumbo frets, etc. make it a lot more comfortable...

    I don't know if this belongs in the Skyrim thread or not, but I figured I'd start a new thread since it's pretty much a separate game. For those who don't know, a bunch of volunteers have been creating Oblivion in the Skyrim engine and it's looking like it's starting to get close.

    Mixtest (Sludgy HM2 goodness)

    It's been a while since I've posted anything to the recording forum and my recent heavy mixes have mostly been done in a vacuum. Since I'm getting a new heavy band together I figured it would be a good idea to get some advice on my mixes. It's not mastered at all yet, just the mix for now...

    NPD: Adventure Audio Fuzz Peaks

    I've been sort of in the market for a new fuzz and stumbled across this in my local guitar center's used section. I haven't heard much about it so I wasn't expecting anything crazy but I tried it out and absolutely loved it. It's apparently based of a black russian muff, but it's got a gate on...

    Electro Harmonix MIG 50

    So EHX are apparently reissuing the Sovtek MIG 50. It seems too good to be true, but EHX have confirmed that its MIA and retails for $575 which is amazing. I'm a little skeptical that there's gotta be a catch somewhere, but if not it'll definitely be my next amp purchase.

    The Dear Hunter-Act IV

    The Dear Hunter Holy .... that song :holy::holy::bowdown: I've been a little disappointed by The Dear Hunter's post-Act III albums, but this song goes right back to the sounds I loved. It's got some fantastic callbacks to previous themes and it returns to the long, expansive prog songwriting...

    NPD: Black Arts Toneworks Black Forest

    Just picked this pedal up and so far I'm loving it. I am trying to strip back my pedalboard to the bare essentials and this definitely helps. With the gain all the way back, the depth knob in the 1st position and cutting some bass it can do a tubescreamer like clean boost (though a little...

    Any feedback for mix/song writing? (FFO: Chon, TTNG, clean tapping)

    I've been writing some math rock type stuff recently. I've been trying to work on my mixes for it. It is totally the opposite of metal, being all clean guitars and light airy tones, so a lot of what I might normally do doesn't really apply. If anyone has any feedback on the mix or the song...

    NPD: Earthquaker Afterneath

    Just got this in today. So far it is amazing. While it can cover basically all the same roles as a normal reverb pedal, it definitely retains a unique sound throughout them that makes it difficult to compare to a normal reverb, because instead of trying to emulate a spring reverb or a hall, it...

    Sumac (Members of Isis, Russian Circles, Baptists)

    I just heard about this band and am super excited. It's Aaron Turner from Isis, Russian Circles bassist Brian Cook, and Baptists drummer Nick Yacyshyn, which is a lineup that sounds almost too good to be true. They just posted an album teaser:

    Any Fans of TTNG/This Town Needs Guns Here?

    I don't see a lot about TTNG or math rock in general here, but I feel like a lot of people here would enjoy it despite the fact that it isn't remotely heavy as it heavily utilizes complicated tapping parts and odd time signatures. For anyone who already is a fan, they started playing a new...

    Not Remotely Metal Mix (ffo: Coheed & Cambria, TTNG)

    My band is almost ready to release an EP. If anyone has any feedback on the mix it would be greatly appreciated before we officially release it. We were able to record live drums this time which I'm super excited about, but it's also my first time really working with live drums, so if anyone...
