Sure, I like metal, and I play metal primarily, but lately I've been thinking . . . it would be so cool if I could add some kind of craziness, you know? Some ring modulator, some wah, some distortion mixed with synth, go nuts with a Subdecay Prometheus or something. I've been listening to lots of Muse and stuff like that, and in addition to the righteous grooves, some of the sounds are just so freakin' cool . . . I want to make some of that noise, man! Guess I'm just getting bored with metal, which is like 'How fast and how technical can I play?' Yeah, I respect it. But, with the exception of a few bands, there's not much room in metal for experimentation effects-wise. Guess I'm just getting bored, or perhaps I'm whinning. Regardless, my boredom with metal lately has led me on a learning path. Working on expanding my musical vocabulary, leanring more about theory, building my fill-repetoire. Whatever . . .
