New Slash Album On The Way!

Slash has announced the release of new album, World On Fire, which will land in your speakers on September 15. It’ll be the second Slash album to feature Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, and as Slash told Kerrang recently, “All I can tell you is that it’s a really ****ing great record. I’m very proud of it, but I don’t want to get into, ‘Oh, dude, it’s epic,’ or ‘It’s the heaviest thing ever.’ It’s very rock and roll, and, as always, it’s very diverse in feel, and I’m just super, super proud of everything that we collectively put into making the thing.

Reinventing The Steel: Dimebag Darrell’s SH-13 Dimebucker

SH13_dime

Pantera and Damageplan’s Dimebag Darrell was one of a kind. At a time when many players were using rack systems or tube heads to achieve warm, smooth tones, he blasted out of Texas with a jagged, aggressive sound based on a solid state amplifier, an EQ and a hell of a lot of attitude. As he refined his equipment needs, Dimebag put the results of his discoveries and preferences into various pieces of signature gear. And the SH-13 Dimebucker was a key part of his search for the ultimate metal tone. Continue reading
