    A pickup for die-hard metal players who want all the distortion in the world...and more.

  5. Seymour Duncan Hot Rails ·
    For those who want powerful pickup in single-coil size - without that annoying 60-cycle hum.

  7. Carvin X-100B ·
    This is the right amp for me. Versatile enough, good sound that is big but not too agressive. I believe this is good choice for rock or even blues players who also want a good clean sound.

  8. Falling Into Infinity by Dream Theater ·
    More straight-forward album from DT.some of the songs sound a bit too ordinary but on the other hand they are played well and with style.i liked the production:very "natural" sounds,not too hi-fi.derek sherinian does good work with keyboards but...(more)

  9. Liquid Tension Experiment by Liquid Tension Experiment ·
    To be honest i expected this to be little better.obviously the playing is high quality but even though there are many great moments (the middle section of "paradigm shift","state of grace" or the ending of "universal mind"),there is too much (po...(more)

  10. Passion and Warfare by Steve Vai ·

  11. Scenes from a Memory by Dream Theater ·
    DT is back to the style little closer to the "Images&Words" again. More complicated songs compared to the previous record. There are many clever "hooks" in this album and once again the songs sound better if you listen them couple of times. Howe...(more)

  12. A Change of Seasons by Dream Theater ·
    "Change of seasons" is very impressive piece: everything from really heavy 7-string guitar playing to the beautiful melodies and tricky time-changes. The cover songs are good too even though they sound a bit "academic". However the title track a...(more)

  13. Once in a Livetime by Dream Theater ·
    DT is one of the few bands that have the possibility to play any of their songs live: great players and only good songs in their recordings. Only problem this record has is the fact that the singer has problems in some of the songs like "voices...(more)

  14. Rising Force by Yngwie Malmsteen ·
    Very good guitar playing and pretty good songwriting too. My only major complaint is that i would like to hear less those super-fast guitar licks and more memorable melodies, because songs like "icarus dream" prove that Yngwie is capable of doin...(more)

  15. Load by Metallica ·
    I dont think this album is as good as the classics like "Master Of Puppets" but still i can listen this more "rock"-style album. The songs vary from OK to boring. I can listen this for example as background music when driving a car. Few of the s...(more)

  16. Master of Puppets by Metallica ·
    My favorite metal album: great songs that are inventive, agressive and even progressive at the same time.

  17. Metallica (Black Album) by Metallica ·
    Strong songwriting and very good production make this good album even though this record doesnt have as much clever tempo-changes and complex riffs as their previous records. In my opinion the guitar players do better work on this album compared...(more)

  18. Ride the Lightning by Metallica ·
    Despite the average production and vocals this is a very good effort from Metallica: many of their classic songs like "fade to black", "for whom the bell tolls" and "creeping death" can be found from RTL. One of the best metal albums in my opini...(more)

  19. Plays Metallica by Apocalyptica ·
    Very interesting idea from these Sibelius-academy students. The bad thing is that they dont have a possibility to use all the tools of standard metal-lineup. With that in mind, these guys do a good work and it sounds like they have a right attit...(more)

  20. Together by Julian Bream & John Williams ·
    Beautiful playing from the true masters of classical guitar. The song choices are very good and the playing cant be better than this...
