Re: Ibanez 8 string in action

I thought that song was played on a seven string?

Re: Ibanez 8 string in action

BTW... off topic rant.
I hate it when videos are shot/produced by people who don'y play instruments.

I don't want to see cheesy quickly changing shots and people in the crowd.. I want to see Haake beat the crap out of his drums and I want to see the guitarists. I do not want to see the singer (even I could do better than him).

I saw them live in Vancouver and, though the singer's voice is tolerable on the album, his stage presence is so irritating. While the other guys look insane, he looks like a pretty boy who is bored.

I wish they got a singer with a darker, heavier and less abrasive voice.
I love Meshuggah, but the singer is not up to par.

(hehe sounds like I'm looking for a job as a vocalist).....

Mårten Hagström uses a 7 while Fredrik Thordendal is on the 8 string. I believe you are correct in saying the song can be played entirely on a 7 but it you watch Fredrik closely you can see him accent with the 8.

his voice great and is a further element that separates Meshuggah from those all-the-same-sh!t death/scum/doom/vomit metal bands. at least he doesn't reach out.

Re: Ibanez 8 string in action

That 8 string looks nice , but its pretty useless because you already have A bassist for those low dark tones. I think the 8 string should be used for a low D string and a high A string to be used to the full 8 string experience.

I believe that he's perfect for Meshuggah. I also think that the ever guys in Meshuggah believe that he's perfect for them as he's in the band since 1987 (OMG it's 20 years!!!!).

Looks like you would lose the job to this pretty boy!
