*Feeding the Abscess guitar tone has entered the room*
Suicide Silence IIRC
Plus I can bet several modern metal bands are using Recto or 5150 patches in their modelers.
The first person who gave real answer?
John Browne of Monuments has a few videos on YouTube of his Recto, dunno if he has recorded any albums with them though.
Car Bomb is the most CRUSH AND KILL band in existence and Greg has been using boosted rectos or modeled rectos his whole career
I gotta give this dude credit for a fairly effective troll session.
Its given me something to do.
Car Bomb is UNREAL. So heavy. And you can't say their tone isn't tight or modern. That stop/start shit they're on is bonkers.
I use a Multiwatt Triple and a Rivera Knucklehead. The Knucklehead provides the focus and 'tight' while the Recto, while not exactly set loose, provides the size. I'd had a couple people complement my tone that are prone to rig cork-sniffery.
@LeftOurEyes how did you hack my webcam?!
Best use of a Recto for heavy death metal riffage= JUNGLE ROT.
Fck, even Krisiun live with a Recto straight up and just a wah pedal, they sound absolutely massive but clear.
hell yeah, Jungle Rot doesn't get enough love. Good pummeling midwestern DM
Here's some of the amps that I own and what I base my opinion on:
A good Mesa Rectifier will stand side by side with any version of a Bogner Uberschall. And in many cases surpass it. I prefer a Rev C Dual, Rev F Triple, or a MW Triple Recto over any Uberschall version. I own these amps... not just tried them once or twice in a store... or read about them somewhere online and then regurgitate played out mis-information.
How about you? Let's see what you are basing your opinion on? Post up. Or... I think you know the rest.
There are a few amps that I love. Most are some form of hotrod Marshall. Like pre-peavey Budda (owned an SD45). Or Suhr PT100 or Hedgehog. I own a Multiwatt Recto and a Rivera Knucklehead. I have a shop near me that carries Carol-Ann, Friedman, Fuchs, Two-Rock and nearly every other boutique amp brand. They let me mix and match anything in the room and pin the amps. They're as curious as I am, and their clients are just as interested. I OWN the above two amps. And while the others I mentioned are great amps and have their sonic footprints, they suit the heavy thing better than the other boutique stuff I've played, save for the PT100. Its an absolute ravenous beast. I've been playing guitar for over 25 years. It isn't like I'm some beginner sans experience. I can make any amp work for my situation. But the ones I love and or own are the ones I find inspiring. Different animals altogether.
In addition to all the bands mentioned so far...
Killswitch Engage: As Daylight Dies
Sabaton: Carolus Rex
My neighbor's band with 6k subscribers on YouTube also uses Rectifiers and plays modern metal. Can they be mentioned here as a great example of a band using Rectifier? Don't think so.
Jungle Rot, Nightwish, Sabaton - modern metal?
Killswitch Engage used it mixed with SLO in studio. It was 2006 year. And they quickly switched to other manufacturers.
I mentioned two factors. If so pay attention to the second one.
My opinion based on Bogner Uberschall Rev.2, Bogner Uberschall Rev.Blue; Splawn QR; VHT Deliverance; VHT Ultralead; 5150; 6505; 6505+; Krank Krankenstein; Krank Revolution; Mesa Rectifier 3ch. Mesa Rectifier Rev.F; Mesa Rectifier Rev.G; Mesa MarkV; Egnaters. Marshalls and Mid-gain amps don't mention; Diezel Herbert.
And all rectifiers were the most disappointing amps.
lul, the second factor 100%
The question isn't whether or not 6k subs on youtube makes you a reliable source. Its whether or not the amp works for a modern metal tone. That my friend is up to the person using the amp. I also don't consider KsE a great example considering nearly every album and tour has had a different setup. They're also Metalcore. A genre that has since generally fallen out of favor save for a few acts. They being one of them. When we're talking about current 'modern' bands, we're talking about the bands currently defining the sounds. AAL, Periphery, Monuments, Opeth, Devin Townsend (who STILL uses Rectos and has UNREAL tone). Artists are going to switch around to what inspires them currently. That doesn't make one thing bad and another good. Just different. What most of us here are saying, is that a Recto has been a mainstay in modern metal since it became publicly available in what was it, 93? It was on albums even before that as Hetfield, Thayil, and several others had prototypes made available to them in the studio.
I've played a Bogner Uber Rev. 2. I'll take my Recto over it any day. An Orange Rockerverb is the only thing I'd consider coming off of my Recto for. And that's because its a different sound. The question is, is it MY sound. The Recto mixed with the Knucklehead gets me there every time.
