    Online metal, hardcore, prog collab

    Looking to collab with someone online combining influences from stuff like sludge metal, hardcore, math rock, prog, fusion, death metal and noise rock. I'm no songwriting expert but my favourite stuff I've written tends to come from working with unusual rhythms, chord progressions, moods, etc...

    The Black Dahlia Murder will continue!

    So Trevor's death raised a lot of questions about what was next for these guys and looks like TBDM will continue, Ryan Knight is back and Brian will take up vocals. Great article and personally excited to hear this. No one will ever replace Trevor but Ellis and Knight tearing it up together is...

    Anybody wanna record a solo over a song I'm struggling to complete?

    Just looking for inspiration and help with a track that I'm stumped on, I can't seem to figure out what to put in the clean/bass spot. I kinda imagine a Plini/intervals/Sithu style shred... But I also kinda suck at guitar 😅😩 Here is the track (unfinished) for a general idea. Anyone and...

    EVH 5150 III 50 w Stealth Preamp tubes

    Experimenting with different pre tubes. Have used Electro Harmonix 7025 and just ordered JJ EC803 High Performance. Recommend placement valves 1-4? Looking for something to push the Blue Channel (I prefer not to use overdrive) and to tame the compressed vibe of the Red channel. Thanks!

    Tips for monitor to use with Revv G20

    Hey! I've been using a Line 6 Helix LT and Neural DSP plugins exclusively for jamming, practicing and recording guitar for some years now. And honestly it works more than well enough for me, but I've been thinking for a little while that I miss having a tube amp and a cab when im just messing...

    hey guys!

    What constitutes a great metal recording tone?

    I recently started exploring the Lasse Lammert presets for Axe FX and noticed his tones are incredibly dry and thick. Generally I have been dialing in and playing with tones that felt way more wet and spongy in comparison, with way more air and sustain. I am having trouble playing convincingly...

    Eminence The Governor or CV-75?

    Hi guys! I've made a test comparison of Eminence The Governor and Eminence CV-75 on Engl Powerball 2 with Engl 2x12 cab. I think these ones are perfect alternatives to Celestion Vintage 30 if not better. What's your opinion?

    What is your favorite combo for active neck/bridge humbucker pickups? Looking for recommendations

    Hi there! I am kinda new to this active pickups thing. So far I am happy with the ones I got for my 6 string CGCFAD guitar (EMG 81&85). I've seen there is also a 7 string version but I think I want something different for my 7 string. What I play is heavy chugging riffs on my bridge pickup...

    If Rammstein wore corpse paint it might sound like this.

    Some more industrial metal action. Starts off chill and gets more angry and fun as it goes. A sort of depressed section. Then back to anger. Our vocalist wrote the lyrics about his lack of self control in some situations, especially while being far from home for extended periods of time due to...

    Can I use a metal brick instead of my bridge as my electrical ground?

    Hey, so I'm building a djentstick out of a 2 by 4. Yeah, I know, I'm hopping on this trend about seven years too late, but whatever. Anyway, I planned nearly everything out, except for one problem. The way I have arranged the parts and cavities means that it will be difficult or impossible for...

    Need some recommendations for epic Choir VSTi

    So I`m currently doing some power metal and I need some choir on the background, for choruses especially, but it should be still powerful, not muffled. I tried some free options I have with my plugins (free stuff), and they just sound wrong, like a bunch of amateurs at school concert, whereas I...
