I’m very happy to be working with the Torpedo Live rack and team. It is a great product and I would tell any recording or live guitarist to own one. If one struggles with micing up guitar cabs be it live or in the studio, this is the rack you have been looking for. Very consistent !
Guitarist and lead composer of the progressive metal band Nevermore, Jeff Loomis is a pure self-taught guitarist who really started playing guitar at the age of 15. A year later (!), he was auditioned to join the members of the group Megadeth but was finally refused because of his too young age, not without receiving encouragement to continue his career from Dave Mustaine.
Influenced by Yngwie Malmsteen, Marty Friedman, Jason Becker and a few others of the same ilk, he joined the band Nevermore, for the recording of the album “This Godless Endeavor”. A few years later, he produced his first solo album, “Zero Order Phase” while revealing true qualities of pedagogues that made the happiness of countless apprentices metal guitarists. The first CD was followed by another : “Plains of Oblivion” in 2012 .
After the separation from Nevermore, Jeff Loomis creates a new instrumental metal band alongside Keith Merrow (Demisery), Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse) and Alex Rüdinger (The Faceless, Ordinance) called Conquering Dystopia. Their self-titled first self-produced album was released on March 10, 2014.
