Freakin metal folks out with Prometheus

    So I'm rehearsing with this goth metal cover band the other day. We're doing Lacuna Coil's cover of Depeche Mode's "Heaven's a Lie." I'm using a bit of distortion for some edge and growl over one channel on my amp that has lows boosted to compensate for distortion related low-loss. In the second verse, where things quiet down a bit, I stomp on a Prometheus Subdecay set to a moderate sweep from low to high. They just FREAKED OUT. They LOVED IT! They were like, 'Wow, that's really how that song is supposed to sound!"

    Goes to show that apart from a bit (and I mean 'a bit') of distortion, not many metal folks are used to bass players who use effects or step outside of the box here and there. Very cool experience.

    And BTW - Subdecay Prometheus ROCKS!! Very versatile pedal for what it was designed for, IMO.

    Are you meaning "Enjoy the Silence"?

    Either way, the Prometheus is a very cool pedal indeed. Cool to hear how you are using it.

    Yes, Enjoy the Silence. My bad!
     
  4. It is a great pedal!
    I used it to good effect in my envelope filter hating band recently - it worked just like I wanted, nice burping, jumping tone that fit the song perfectly. Not over the top like some filter pedals. Mostly I like that the emphases is on "filter" and not "envelope" :D

    I find it works best for me if I put it before dirt/od pedals.
     
  6. I usually keep one synthy dirt (Prunes & Custard) before it and one nastier Fuzz (Attack Goat) after it.
