    THE FUTURE PAST TOUR - The Setlist Contest!

    A big question to me is whether they want to keep the SiT part and the Senjutsu part separate. Personally, I don't think it's worth it, but perhaps they are happy with the idea of "worlds" within a set, which allows for more elaborate theatrics, I guess. If they decide to do this kind of...

    The Future Past tour 2023

    For my spot it was 575 PLN (roughly 120 euros) per ticket, both nights. GA tickets are available for around 71 euros.

    The Future Past tour 2023

    It just seems too unorthodox for a band that has been repeating certain patterns for decades. They opened previous history and album tours with respective openers and there were very few exceptions. They may play DoFP but I don’t see them opening with it. Who knows, though, maybe I’ll be...

    The Future Past tour 2023

    Great, great news! I've always wished I could attend the first gig of a tour and now it's possible. Unless they add more dates before June 13... I think they will open with CSiT and I have nothing against slower speed or slightly simplified drumbeats. They might be stubborn enough to do it...

    Guitar Pedals

    In my experience, all tube amps have been extremely loud when used without attenuation. My EVH 5150 LBX at 3.75W was just crazy. I mean - for me the usable range on the volume knob spanned like a millimeter. Even Marshall DSL1 was super loud. But maybe I'm too sensitive, because I prefer playing...

    Guitar Pedals

    Yes, it is that simple. You plug your guitar into the interface and either open the standalone app and just play or open your DAW, create an audio track put the plugin on the track and record. The cool thing about recording this way is that you can change the sound after you tracked. You just...

    Guitar Pedals

    That's debatable, I guess. In my experience, IRs gave better results than me miking the cab with an SM57. High quality impulses, such as Ownhammer or Bogren Digital, are relatively cheap and get you access to a variety of cabs, mics and mic mixes. Perfect for home recording. I recommend checking...

    Guitar Pedals

    If you're aiming at home recording and you really want a tube amp, I'd advise to go for head + cab (unless the combo can send raw signal), so you could use something like Two Notes C.A.B./Captor or Suhr Reactive Load and record with IRs. Much more convenient than miking IMHO. I've tried a lot...

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    Warsaw was great, loved the show. The band seemed happy and full of life, the overall performance was great. Bruce was just phenomenal, he's unbelievable... What a voice STILL. The stage design looked spectacular and the 3 new songs + The Sign of the Cross are the highlights for me. The latter...

    Maiden studio album shoot-out, Part 4

    That's actually pretty tough. The X Factor is a fantastic, often underrated album. The Final Frontier - while not a top 3 reunion album - still represents my favourite incarnation of Maiden and has a lot of great stuff in it. I'm voting TFF but TXF is pretty close.

    Maiden studio album shoot-out, Part 3

    I love the 80s stuff like most of us, but modern Maiden is my favourite and BNW is probably top 3 albums material for me. So BNW easily.
