Ironically, they didn't boo Queens of the Stoneage.


that is freakin awesome

well, they do have a kinda emo pedigree, ie at the drive-in.

and no, you're right, they sound nothing like led zeppelin. but i hear people comparing them. which blows.

oh, and skydogzoso1986... ive listened to plenty of led zeppelin. they were awful. true story.

I personally think Frances the Mute is better. The tunes overall are just more awesome. Just because the songs are longer, doesn't make the CD less accessible, it just means you have to put some effort into listening to the songs.

I agree Francis the Mute is a better album but the in-escapable fact of the matter is that their first album is more broadly appealing....sigh

Anyone know what kind of guitar Omar plays? It thought it was an Ibanez but I've never seen any other Ibanez like it.

why do you need all that? it's no use, it's just for getting things too complicated. it's ok if you use 2-5 effects, but 200? it's just like john petrucci, it just ****s up your sound imo

NO, because he's not using ALL of them at the same time. Take Cassandra Gemini as an example, the song starts with some heavy distortotion, then it gets heavier, then it breaks down to a jazzy part, then it goes heavier again. All of those pedals come in handy when you want to have a very eclessiastic collection of sounds in one song.

yeah, that can be true, it can be handy if you know when to use what effect and how, but 200 is a lot you know!

Ok where did the number 200 come in lol. You posted 200 in your first post, then replied to it saying 200 is a lot. It's like you replied to someone else that said he has 200 effects, but it was actually yourself .

I see like 15.

Oh and look behind him. Mmmmmmmmm...........orange amps .........drool

Thumbs up

Hey thanks! Sweet guitar. And pedals.... and the Orange amp... and those tight pants

What kind of pickup is that? Is there a website that has all Omar's gear on it? That would make things easy on me


The general consensus seems to be that Omar's guitar is impossible to buy
Think I could get an Ibanez, and change the pickups and stuff?
