    I love the more prevalent classic rock influence in Paul and Dustie's playing this time around. It's stupid how versatile they've gotten. :shred:

    I noticed that as well. Man they jump genres of music and fuse it with metal so well. :|

    Based on their interviews and videos, I have to think the classic rock influence is primarily Paul's. He strikes me as a guy that listens to Skynyrd, CCR, and probably The Allman Brothers.

    Definitely agreed, but I think they both incorporate it quite a bit. I've heard/read in several interviews that both of them idolize Warren Hayes (Allman Brothers) and try to emulate his tone. Just listen to Dustie's solo around 10:50 of the Fidelitorium version of Parallax. Tasty.
    On a separate but related note, Dustie posted a video on Instagram a few days ago of him busting out some sweet southern licks with some country band here in Nashville after Bonnaroo.
    Anyway, the main point is both of these guitarists are so damn good. Did anyone ever see this? :lol:

    Ha! I had no idea. I just figured based on the few videos/interviews and reading Paul's NFL column. You can't be from the south and that into sports without being into it. Skynyrd is a tailgating tradition in the south. Nothing like hearing thousands of sports fans drunkenly screaming "Turn it Up", when Sweet Home Alabama comes on (which is a guaranteed to happen).

    Ha ha. I hadn't seen this. I love (hate) Dustie's Nu Metal riff. I was waiting for Tommy to rap over it.

    Substream's site posted Paul doing a playthrough of parts of Famine Wolf.

    Looks like this new album is the lowest rated on rateyourmusic since the 2002 self titled. I've still yet to give this album a proper spin.

    Could that be because it hasn't been released yet?

    Not to be the guy who quotes his own post, but I'd never paid attention to Paul's signature Ibanez before this video. Holy balls is that thing gorgeous. I'd never considered buying a signature guitar before, but am looking at this. I have a major milestone birthday this year I could exploit for such a toy. But at 2700 bones, it may end up going unfulfilled.

    This album will definitely be in my top 3 albums of this year. It's mindblowingly good, even more cleans than Parallax I think? But they're so damn catchy. The album is a serious grower though, first few times I listened to it I wasn't that convinced but now I can't stop listening to it. :hbang:

    Man that dude is sick. Paul and Dustie have to be one of the greatest duos ever.

    I was thinking the same thing a couple of weeks ago. They're my favorite duo since Murray/Smith. That's a long standing record to topple.

    While the Waggoner/Waring train is choo-choo-choo-in', here's a cool interview they did with Mesa a while back. They discuss tones and inspiration. Top notch gear nerdery.



    I've been patiently listening to Coma Ecliptic and I have to say it might end up being my favorite release of theirs. Way too early to say, but it could happen.
