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

The pedal playground for Cole Crutchfield begins with the Morley Steve Vai Mini Bad Horsie 2 Wah, and from there things get louder with a Mesa/Boogie Grid Slammer and Way Huge Swollen Pickle. After that you get the EHX Freeze, ISP Technologies Decimator II G-String, TC Electronic Hall of Fame, and a pair of Boss modulation pedals—a CH-1 Super Chorus and BF-3 Flanger. Everything is given life thanks to the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus and is in tune thanks to the Boss TU-2.
