Schecter Unveils Three Artist Signings from Metal'sDarker Recesses -
Schecter Guitar Research has announced three pivotalplayers in the metal arena with new Schecter Signature Seriesguitars to be released: Kenny Hickey (Type O Negative, Danzig,Seventh Void), Tommy Victor (Prong, Ministry, Danzig) and Marco"Maus" Biazzi (Lacuna Coil): three distinct players with differentstyles and tone, but with one ingredient in common: SchecterGuitars.
Kenny Hickey's well defined baritone sound was the heart of TypeO Negative, Gothic-metal homages to man's darkest corners, whilethe bite of his tone found with Seventh Void and his touring stintswith Danzig proved that regardless of the set-up, his tone was anorganic extension. His Schecter Kenny Hickey Signature C-1 EXwill allow players to harness the tools of his sound and maybe evenconjure some "green light" spirits up.
Tommy Victor is a legend of the stop/start riff fraternity,something that befitted his band Prong's New York City chaoticroots. Albums like "Prove You Wrong", "Cleansing" and their latest"Carved In Stone" highlight his clean clock-like riffs, while hisroadwork with Danzig further embraced his ability to play a deepgroove and Ministry showcased his pile-driving methodology. TheSchecter Tommy Victor Signature will allow guitarists to now employhis various playing styles in one unit.
Lacuna Coil's Marco "Maus" Biazzi, like Kenny Hickey, explores adarker sound but harnesses the sweep of European-style metalfamiliar to his Italian heritage. His intricate playing,weaving between the throbbing melodies and Christina Scabbia'svocals, landed the band on a much larger stage with the success of"Comalies" in 2004. With the recent release "Dark Adrenaline", Mauscontinues to paint sonic melodies while wielding off flourishingleads. The Schecter Maus Signature C-7 model will help furtherestablish his reputation in and out of the metal world.
