I grew up in the 70's and 80's listening to what I have and always believed was Heavy Metal at the time. Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden even Led Zeppelin to name a few. When I see reviews today of guitars and amps I always here the question "Can you do metal with that?" Some say these pickups, amp or guitar will get you close to metal some not. What I havenít realized for a while is that my definition of metal and the current definition of Metal, I think, are different. When I think metal I think Plexi/JCM800 maybe with an overdrive pedal, the British sound if you will. So, when I look at a demo of the HX/DA or 65amps Empire it seems to me you could do metal with it no problem, at least the metal that I know. Am I the only one that thinks this way?
