Take two brothers from Russia and two friends with Bengali ancestry, add some inspiration from Nirvana and Tool and the result would be SLANT, the Los Angeles based quartet known for their intricate, melodic sound. Slant's debut album, Athing Line, was released July, 2005, and since, the band has appeared on the The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, been featured on MTV Desi and are currently touring the Southwest. Album is available in stores everywhere, and on iTunes, Napster, and Rhapsody.

Technical Question No. 1 [May. 20th, 2006|01:34 pm]
Hard Rock/ Metal Guitarists/Bassists
I was wondering if I were to replace my pickups, what would be a good choice? I want something that can get really distorted, but when the gain is turned down sounds really good clean too. Any suggestions?

The setup on the guitar I'm looking to fix up is:

Neck: Humbucker

Middle: Single Coil

Bridge: Humbucker

I was looking at some Dimarzio pickups online... but I dunno. So just looking for some input ^_^
