Posted on July 31st, 2015 by MDuffy

With her parents fighting in the house, she runs outside to get away from the chaos, eventually finding that she can focus her power through some sort of psychic ability.

Miss May I Drops Video for ‘I.H.E.’

Posted on July 29th, 2015 by MDuffy

Miss May I I.H.E.

Ohio metallers Miss May I went super heavy in both theme and music for their new video for the track “I.H.E.”

The clip focuses on a teenaged boy who is building a coffin with a harsh authority figure. As they drag it into the woods, the teen can’t take it anymore and turns on his abuser, tackling him and depositing the body in the previously empty coffin.

The intense visual is also complimented by Miss May I’s trademark brutal sound and skittish camera angles.

Currently on the Vans Warped Tour, Miss May I has an album entitled Deathless coming out Aug. 7, but in the meantime, check out the “I.H.E.” video after the jump. (more…)

Charvel Super Stock SD1 Electric Guitar Review by Sweetwater Sound

Posted on July 23rd, 2015 by MDuffy

Sweetwater Sound Charvel
Don Carr of Sweetwater Sound recently took a hard look at a Charvel Super Stock SD1 in Sunset Orange Flake and came away pretty impressed.

“Everything about this guitar exudes attitude,” wrote Carr. “The Floyd Rose trem is a must-have for guitarists who put their trem arms to serious use, allowing for huge dive bombs and squeals while maintaining your tuning stability. You get a fat-sounding pair of Seymour Duncan humbuckers, a JB at the bridge and ’59 at the neck. And the absence of a tone circuit helps these pickups pack even more bite.

“The maple neck and fretboard have a great feel for faster, more expressive playing. The neck carve is not too thin, not too fat, with a compound radius fretboard that flattens out as you play up the neck. Between the compound radius and the big frets, you can execute huge bends without worrying about fretting out.”

Carr also produced a video that shows just how much this guitar screams.
