BLEED FROM WITHIN Twist And Turn In This Exclusive Guitar Playthrough Of “BED OF SNAKES” (Featuring ADAM NOLLY GETGOOD)

Glasgow-based metal act BLEED FROM WITHIN are back and better than ever, this time with an exclusive playthrough from guitarist Craig ‘Goonzi’ Gowan of their track “Bed of Snakes” off their 2018 release ERA. And if that weren’t enough, the song features the one and only Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood tearing things up on guitar just a little bit into the track. We might also mention that both dudes are sporting some gorgeous Carillion guitars (specs below), so this is definitely one to please both your eyes and ears. Watch and be amazed, only right here, on Gear Gods!


The track is a great blend of technical and melodic elements; combining the band’s darker, harmonic sensibilities with fast-paced riffs and grooves. Goonzi’s playing is absolutely on point here, and the parts span almost the entire fretboard at times, which the dude is able to cover with ease.
