Ephel Duath is like this. EDIT: Ephel Duath is a cross between jazz and metal, I just listen to War From A Harlot's Mouth and they sound like straight up deathcore. Diablo Swing Orchestra is a cross between metal and swing. The Gloominous Doom is a death metal and ska.
It's possible the songs he showed me are the only examples of the fusion. It was a couple of years back, and as I said it was only a few tracks and I didn't like them lol.
Diablo Swing Orchestra is awesome, Balrog Boogie and Ragdoll Physics blow my mind every time
War From A Harlot's Mouth. Some manner of death metal (or something deathy) crossed with smooth jazz. Only heard a few songs because a friend was showing me and I did not care for it at all. Essentially it went from ridiculously heavy to jazz, then back to heavy.
I'd sell it, no point in keeping a guitar you don't want just for it's rarity (unless you have plans on selling it for lots in the distant future). The money from that Jackson could get you a good guitar that you'd rather play. It would get you up from the Schecter price range to the proper ESP stuff.
I use 10-52 when playing in drop d and e standard. 12-56 for drop c. Never tuned lower than that, but seriously, anything less than 11 for drop b is silly business, either that or you have the hands of an 11 year old girl... with some sort of degenerative muscle disease.
The vast majority are needless, but a good overdrive, a noise gate, and a wah (and maybe a delay) are somewhat necessary.
I really want to agree with the noise gate, but I haven't found one yet that doesn't screw my tone, if I did find one I would however use it for sure. Wah I shall some day get, but I much prefer to play rhythm so haven't really needed one at this stage.
I don't know the regions, but the accent of the local villagers in Hot Fuzz is god damn hilarious, I can't take anything they say seriously. The worst is that cockney lower class accent. Can't stand it, I live in the area of Australia that has the most English immigrants and I come across it all the time. I'm so sick of it, that if I meet an attractive girl and she has that accent. Instant deal breaker.
Two identical EMG's on a guitar is pretty common. ESP do it on a few guitars as well. Should still sound fine, and each pick up should still sound a little different due to position. No idea why it would sound terrible.
I'm looking at joining as an officer myself. The benefits are awesome, the pay is quite good (especially when you consider the benefits). Though I'm looking for a career, not a free university degree. Plus bitches be loving the uniform.
Also try looking at the Japanese website. Much bigger choice of guitars to be had there. I'm not sure if it's true, but it seems that they only offer what's popular to the USA, but the Japanese site runs nearly everything.
Not sure what kind of price range that is really, being in Aus. But Schecter do pretty well priced guitars. Dean are also worth looking at (but make sure you see the guitar in person, as their QC is dodgey at times).
I use the "Not Even Slinky" strings on drop c tuning, so over tension sure as hell ain't a problem. It shouldn't affect your speed too much, I personally find that I slow down a little if my strings don't have enough tension, as the string just gives way to the pick stroke a little much for me, but certainly nothing huge and that's just a personal thing, not a rule.
I used to love the **** out of those books. They lead me to some truly great fantasy series, and because of that series I was reading the Wheel of Time and LotR instead of Harry Potter during my school years.
If you've been a member here since 2005 and you still bought Behringer, you must really not read anything but the pit very often haha. However, I'd be surprised if you couldn't just get some parts from another company, maybe even replace all four so they match.
Oh, didn't know they'd made the jump. I assume it has only been since In Waves? What noise gate do you use btw? I'm in the market for one at the moment (learning some songs from In Waves funnily enough). I'll be waiting for that new sound clip too, as I'm looking at those two amps myself, also looking at the Diamond Nitrox, but it's hard to get info on.
I like the second one better, whichever that is haha. Hard to rate tone for me though, as it's all preference really. I preferred the second just because it sounded that little bit more tight and evil. Had a certain amount of aggression the other just didn't have.
A friend of mine picked up a Warpig (or it may have been a Nailbomb) a few months ago and he absolutely loves it. Makes everything sound super mean, so much so he has to turn the gain back on his amp whenever he uses the Bareknuckle equipped guitar. I'm looking at getting some in the near future myself, they seem really awesome.
On my drop c guitar I use 12-56 strings. I use 10-52's for drop d tuning and I was finding that gauge far too floppy for drop c. I find it's roughly the same tension using these thicker strings, but they feel extremely beefy under the fingers.
