Two notes Audio Engineering, the world leading innovator and manufacturer of load boxes, attenuators, digital load boxes, and digital cabinet emulators, has just announced their first Artist Series release for 2023 with Cesar Soto, Monte Pittman, and Paul D’Amour of Ministry.
When you think of no-holds-barred genre-defining “Industrial Metal”, no one - we repeat No One-is more revered than genre-pioneers Ministry. Their music is founded on a bedrock of machine-like precision. They’re synonymous with the pinnacle in cutting-edge guitar sonics. They’re fuelled by a mantra of never being pigeon-holed by any conventional paradigm. It’s no wonder their nefarious blend of musicality and performance-centric prowess has resulted in 6 Grammy nominations and mainstage performances at the likes of Lollapalooza, Big Day Out, and Wacken Open Air. When Twonotes heard - from none-other-than David Gnozzi (MixbusTv) - axe smiths Cesar Soto, Monte Pittmanand Paul D’Amour were interested in an official Artist Series DynIR release, it’s an understatement to say they jumped at the chance

First up, there’s Ceasar’s Wizard® straight 4x12 outfitted with Celestion® Creamback65s and a Marshall® 4x12 with raunchy punch-fuelled Greenbacks. Add to this, Monte’s WeberSpeakers® Silver Bell-equipped Emperor® 4x12 and mighty Orange® 4x12 with V30s, and the match is set for a six-string assault of meteoric caliber.
