My new toy

Yup, I bought myself a new toy, kids. A Line 6 Spider IV 75 Watt amp.

Here she is:

75 Loud watts of output into a custom 12" Celestion Speaker - hundreds of built-in presets, 64 user locations to store your own sounds, and I also bought the FBV Mk II Express pedal control board so I can switch thru 4 of the presets at at time.

Can't wait to really play this thing loud and test it out!!!

I am also looking into replacing the stock pickups on my Schecter Omen 6 with some GFS Mean 90's, which are a humbucker-sized version of a vintage P-90 pickup. This may drastically change the sound of that guitar, but I want something with a bit more clarity and "spank", as opposed to the loud, but kind of dull sound I get now.

Any opinions on pickups, let me know whatcha think.


Light at the End of the Tunnel

I finally decided to release an album I was holding on to, in hopes that I could find a singer to add some vocals, but alas, n'er did I twixt to findth yon vo'clist.

Sorry for the Shakespearean dramatic text, but I really needed to post some "new" material for the masses, since I haven't done anything productive in a LOOOONNNNGGGGG time.

So here it is. I actually just finished posting the songs to the Internet Archive, so the derivation files may not be complete for another few hours from now (5:00 PM EST), so wait a while, then zoom on over and download the tunes.

Here's a copy of the details as posted at the Archive Page:

"Light at the End of the Tunnel" almost didn't see the light of day (hah! pun!). I actually had this music done back in September of 2009, but decided to hold off to see if I could find a vocalist to add some vocals to the songs. Well, that didn't work out, so I decided to finally release the songs as they are. At that particular time, I was listening heavily to "post-rock" and "post-metal" bands like Pelican, Isis, Kayo Dot, Gifts From Enola, Sigur Ros, and Mono. So I decided to try my hand at some similar music. Not that it turned out that way, but the influence is there. Hope you like.

The whole album was written and performed with the guitars tuned to Open C/D (C,G,C,G,C,D), except for the last song, which is in Standard E tuning."

So here's a pic of the Cover:

And the link:

Like I said above, the Internet Archive is busy creative Derivative Files (MP3, OGG Vorbis, ZIP of whole album, etc.), so it might be a few hours (or even a day or so) before we're fully ready for download.

Check it out when you have the chance.
