NOVELISTS: Get Blindsided With This Exclusive Guitar Playthrough For “Eyes Wide Shut” (With ON-SCREEN TABS!)

Paris-based metal act Novelists are back again, this time with a new guitar playthrough for their new single “Eyes Wide Shut”! The French group are known for their super modern metal style and on-screen tabs in their playthroughs so that fans can jam along, and this new track has all of that and more. Guitarist Florestan Durand lays it down in style, so grab a guitar and see if you can keep up (good luck!), only right here, on Gear Gods!

Durand had this to say about the track:

“‘Eyes Wide Shut’ represents the new step that 2019 will be for Novelists, this new album will be the beginning of our next chapter as a band.”

This tune has everything you’d want in a progressive metal track: chunky yet clear riffage, ambient cleans, and enough melodic content to tie all the heavy moments together. As for the gear used on this track, it consists of Durand’s signature model Von Stein guitar, the Nova 6, which is loaded with Bare Knuckle Nailbombs. He runs that through the trusty and true Axe-FX II for his tones here. Good on ya, mate!
