Farewell, Professor! – A Tribute to Neil Peart

A couple of weeks ago, the music world was hit with the devastating news that drumming icon Neil Peart had passed away at the age of 67. After processing the news and re-visiting some Rush records, I wanted to write my own tribute to Neil Peart who influenced so many fans and musicians.

Best Metal Albums of the 2010s

We just ended a decade. I thought it was a good time to revisit some of my favorite albums of the past 10 years.

Gear Summary of 2019

I know most of my readers are into gear. So, here’s a summary of what I was up to in 2019.

David Ellefson – More Life with Deth (Book Review)

He’s not afraid to tell you what the thought in the past and what he thinks now. He tells you what made him happy; and he also tells you what frustrated him with no filter. It created an interesting book, but without the attacks that you sometimes see in memoirs.

What’s Next for Chris Adler?

Even though we’ve heard from both parties at this point, it’s still not very clear what actually happened. These things end up being public at some point; but for now, we don’t really know what led to this decision. My goal with this article is to share my own thoughts on Chris Adler’s drumming, his contribution to Lamb of God, and what we might expect in the future.

Andy Gillion – Neverafter (Album Review)

For fans of instrumental metal with lots of melody and orchestrations, this is a great listen. You get to hear some vocals as a bonus too!

The Thinking Man’s Metal Blog

There are two reasons why I started this web site:
  1. I enjoy discovering insights about a band, a particular album or a song, or a certain musical event. I believe the more you know what went into a certain musical piece, the richer your listening experience will be. I hope to contribute to your experience by sharing what I’ve discovered along the way.
  2. Unfortunately many rock and metal sites these days focus on click-bait articles and try to generate interest by taking quotes out of context and using false information. Whether they do these intentionally or not is up for debate, but the fact is there are not many sites that focus on accuracy of their information.
    Megadepth is a blog that focuses on hard rock and heavy metal bands and musicians. But unlike many other sites/blogs that do quick posts without the proper research, I dedicate my time to in-depth articles. I always add my opinion in the articles, but you will know that I base them on facts; not rumors.

Thoughts on Amp Modeling

Not only is today’s technology capable of handling many different variables, it’s also becoming harder to be aware of updates when they come frequently. But I’m already at a level where I know enough to get a tone I like and keep a set up that is flexible, easy to use, and that offers a big variety of tones. I’ve also been lucky enough to get my hands on a few different modelers. This is why I thought this was a good moment to reflect on this topic.
