There are many guitarists out there that have such a signature sound that, when you hear it you know just who is playing. Deftones guitarist Stephen Carpenter is one of those guitarists. His style is undeniable and it works across many different bands and their material. So, with that in mind, here are a few of the jams Stephen has lent his playing to over the years.
Will Haven- El Sol (from Muerte):
Chimaira- Rizzo (from Pass Out Of Existence):
Linkin Park- By Myslf (from Reanimation):
Non-Phixion- The CIA Is Trying To Kill Me (from The Future Is Now):
Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton is preparing to release his debut solo album March 1, 2019. This is an album that Mark has been working on for a while. In a recent interview Mark went on to say “This album wasn’t a concerted effort to start something outside Lamb of God,” he explains. “Music is always in my head, and until I write and record it, it’s stuck there. But once I record it, it’s out. It’s a catharsis, more for my own sanity.” So needless to say, this album is full of variety and riffs galore. The album features Mark playing all the guitars with guest accompaniment from the likes of Roy Mayorga, David Ellefson, Ray Luzier, Paolo Gregoletto, Alex Bent, Mike Inez, Jean-Paul Gaster, Steve Gorman, Marc Ford, Yanni Papadopoulos, and Chris Brooks rounding out the band. Anesthetic sure seems like a beast of an album. Two songs have been released already “The Truth Is Dead” featuring Arch Enemy’s Alissa White- Gluz and Mark’s Lamb of God mate Randy Blyth, and “Cross Off” which features the late Chester Bennington of Linkin Park.
