These purveyors of punishing ’90s-style hardcore chisel their heavy sound with downtuned 7-strings and lighter hues of delay and modulation.

Lead guitarist Isaac Hale slays audiences every night with this Ibanez RGDIX7MPB. The 24-fret, 26.5"-scale instrument has an ash body with a poplar burl top, DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbuckers, and Gotoh MG-T locking tuners. The band previously tuned their 7-strings to G–D–G–C–F–A–D, but have since moved to drop-A tuning: A–E–A–D–G–B–E.
