What gear do you use?

Recommended Posts

Let's talk about current gears. I have Ibanez K5 with Ibanez PD7 connected to Warvick Profet 5.1 with Warvick WCA 411 Pro 8 ohms. I've been happy with these since it was pretty low on budget but got still the deep and low bass sound that I yearn. And It's quite flexible also. Been thinking about getting few more effects and maybe a WCA 115 Pro for deeper tones, if I can find one for cheap. For home use and one punk band where I used to play I used combo that was made by Loco, no further information. It got nice vintage sound in it. How 'bout you?

Re: What gear do you use? I had a black Harmony (I think) 4 string that I covered with Cradle of Filth stickers and gave to my cousin. I later got a 5 string Peavey Millennium and I really like it. My original guitar/bass rig was a Peavey Rock Star II head one a 6 X 8 Peavey cab. I've still got the cab but traded the head to a former band member for the work he did on my parents PC some years ago. My current bassist has a good rig but I can't recall what he's got off the top of my head. I do know he's got some Ibanez 5 string but he's going to get a Schecter 5 string in the future. He's also got an old Rat pedal that he's going to start using from time to time.

Re: What gear do you use? Since the bass is my second instrument I've never really put much thought into what I bought. I can't say what I think is the best but I'm sure it's probably Schecter made.

Re: What gear do you use? They suck. They've been playing the same song for 30-40 years now. There's no genetic variation in what they do. If I wanted to listen to music like that I'd still listen to Iced Earth, or start listening to AC/DC.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
