JAMES NORBERT IVANYI – “Malevolent” Playthrough

One of the very first editorials I ever wrote for Gear Gods was a piece about single coil pickups in metal. Generally I prefer humbuckers, but sometimes I come across an excellent case for using a single coil sound. James Norbert Ivanyi is usually that exception.


Or you could say he’s a case for getting really really really ridiculously good at the guitar and then the kind of pickups you play don’t matter. Either way, here’s his most blistering song off his album The Matter Circumvention, which you should seriously consider picking up immediately. If you need more convincing, press play now.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
