Chat With The Lord Of Metallic Darkness Ola Englund

Ola Englund has grown to become one of the more known players of metal and yet he has only been in Six Feet Under for about a year (and just recently joined The Haunted). Ola's start was with his band Feared and through posting videos directly onto YouTube that made people go "daaaammmnnn that sounds awesome!" Between a combination of brutal skills, great tone and treating each fan like they were a personal friend, Ola's reputation has grown to a height that must border on absurdity for someone who used to be an accountant. We decided to sit down with him and talk about the important issues.


What's your favorite beer?

The one in my hand or the one closest to my hand! Seriously I just drink whatever I can get. I enjoy lagers the most, when I go to the general store to pickup beer I usually buy Stella Artois or Heiniken because that's what they have there. Or if I want to cheap out for real there is a beer called Sofiero.

Do you tune by ear or use a tuner?

Both, if I have a tuner, I use the tuner. If I don't have a tuner, I'll use my ears.


Metal 8-String Bridge Pickup Comparsion

Keith Merrow recently got together with Wes Hauch of the Faceless to produce this killer 8-string pickup comparsion. Merrow recently has been having a great streak of success partnering up with Jeff Loomis on the album Conquering Dystopia. While many bands attempt Indiegogo efforts nowadays to fund their album - the Loomis and Merrow effort instantly skyrocketed thanks to loyal fans who truly want to hear what these two are capable of. To date it has raised over $30,000 and the funds have helped them bring on some professional heavyweights and promises to be one brutal album. 



Fender has just announced the release of their Wilko Johonson Telecaster, as a European exclusive. Many know Wilko as the one of the members of the English band Dr. Feelgood, which had a prominent impact on the up and coming punk movement. Wilko has long been associated with a Telecaster and a tone and playing style that produces a slashing sound and features quite a bit of treble.
