Metal tones and arch enemy.
Well, since this is a place to talk about guitars and music I just wanted to say I am excited about going to see Arch Enemy on March 10th. It will be pretty cool. It's been a while since I went to see a heavy band.
I heard the new album for the first time in it's entirety this weekend, sad I know, it's not very new but, none of my friends are into metal and I can't buy everything immediately.
Those boys can play, I'm glad Christopher is back, his playing helps the melody of the music. But, I still can't get into Angela's vocals too much, they just don't do it for me. All of that makes me more excited to see them than I would have been. I wasn't a huge AE before (due to the vocals) but they're growing on me. I know people around hear like to rag a little on ESP and Seymour Duncan but, I'm sorry, Michael Amott has the best metal tones I have ever heard. Don't know what people think of Randall though.
This all makes me think though, why do bands seem to prefer Duncans and Solo artists prefer DiMarzios? Just look at the number of real continually functioning bands on the DiMarzio site, and then compare that to the Duncan site. Then do the same for solo acts. The findings are interesting. I know it could be that SD simply has more endorsers than DiMarzio but, it's interesting to me what do you think?
