    Belated NGD: A Very Black (Metal) Baritone

    I was recently fortunate enough to acquire Simon Sludge’s LTD Black Metal MH-7HT - this thing is currently set up in drop-E and is absolutely crushing! The pickup was replaced with an Instrumental Pickups SFTY4-7 pickup, and the volume knob was swapped with a Tesi low-profile kill switch. It...

    EPIC NGD: ESP LTD Phoenix Black Metal (Fishman Fluence Modern)

    Sooo I got a new guitar, yay! Last week my new LTD Phoenix Black Metal arrived. Since I got it it's easily becoming one of my favorite guitars. It looks cool, it's simple and elegant, the features are sick, it plays great and most importantly: it sounds great! The Fishman Moderns don't sound...

    Bareknuckle Aftermath vs. Seymour Duncan (Nazgûl/Black Winter)

    Hello everyone! I finally created an account after lurking on the forums for what must have been 10 years in order to ask for your help and advice. I would like to upgrade the pickups, as well as most of the hardware on my Ibanez Iron Label RGIR27FE since the stock EMG 707'S have been very...

    Black Metal in 7/4

    Some time ago I did a cover of the Mayhem song 'Impious Devious Leper Lord' which goes in 3/4 for pretty much the entire song and it got me thinking of writing black metal in other time signatures than 4/4, which I bet a good 95% of all bm is written in. I think it works well and gives a cool...

    Low Gain Black Metal

    So I wrote this riff a week or two ago and created a lesson for it. The basic premise is the black metal riffs you can write without using a ton of gain and having a blastbeat going over it. Other types of riffs, like this one, can sound just cool, but in a very different way.

    NAD: EVH 5150 6L6 50 watt

    I got this beast a couple of weeks ago. Brought it used along with the matching 2x12 cabinet, and it just sounds awesome. The rig is about 5 years old, but I don't think the previous owner played it that much, because it still sounds full with plenty of high end. I have been going through a...

    New song by my band: Vile Retribution - Mirrored In Violence (Black / Death Metal)

    New music! We spend a lot of time on discussion gear, technique etc, but really it is all about creating music. So finally my band is ready with a bunch of songs that will be released later this year as an EP. I have co-written, produced and mixed the song, and I also perform all guitars...

    Picking chords for black metal

    Hi guys, so I did another lesson. This time on picking individual notes of chords which is a way I really like to play since there is so many variations and rhytmic ideas that you can bake into a riff that way. Check if out and just ask if you want me to do a lesson on something specific!

    Malevich - Our Hollow (blackened / grind / sludge / post metal)

    No association with the band other than that I'm playing with them in a couple weeks. Seriously this album absolutely rips front to back. And they put on a seriously good live show. I'd say if you're a fan of any kind of extreme metal then seeing them on thier upcoming tour would be a good idea...

    NGD - LTD EC Black Metal

    [Sorry for shitty phone pics] I must say I didn't expect much from this guitar, but I got to admit it plays waaay better then I expected. The matte finish is impeccable, the fretwork is properly done and holds tuning pretty well. I recently moved to Norway and had to leave my guitars back in the...

    Oh look, it's another pickup thread

    Well here we are again.... Some one's asking about pickups again. For those of you who say my latest post in my RGI alu neck build thread, you'll know I'm still undecided on pickups for my build. I find it's easier to work with bullet points so I'll go ahead and list em': Guitar spec: -...
