Tom Fountainhead is the new guy in Obscura. He had some pretty damn big shoes to fill after the departure of Christian Muenzner, who, for reference, also played lead guitar in Necrophagist.
So it’s relieving and encouraging to see that Tom has no problem tearing his way through an Obscura tune – even augmenting the solo with his own interpretation and inflection. I’m excited to see what this guy can do when a new album is in the works.
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.
