That's always a great brand. The only real competitor in bread and butter heavy metal guitar market is ESP and Schechter.
Gibson, Fender, PRS, Gretsch, Rickenbacker, and Parker Fly just don't have the viral popularity that Ibby, ESP, and Schechter have in the newer metal. I am sure Ernie Ball makes a great metal guitar, but they aren't in that field so much so they are not serious competition so I don't see the blasphemy there.
