I'm in a "progressive metal" band, in the loosest sense of the term progressive metal. We're about as prog as Iron Maiden right now, but I'm trying to move in that direction. I play an Ibanez BTB1006E into a Crate head and a 4x10 Peavey cab, with no effects. Ideally, I'd run a Mesa Big Block into a Bergantino 610, but that's way too expensive for me right now.
I also sing. My philosophy is that screaming adds a layer of emphasis and anger to a part, and it loses that when it's always done, somewhat. Plus it hurts my throat to do it too much, so I try and restrict it to specific parts that need the emphasis. One of my influences in that regard is Benjamin Burnley of Breaking Benjamin.
