Jens Bogren is a name you may not have heard, but whose work you surely have. Opeth’s Watershed, Symphony X’s Paradise Lost, Dimmu Borgir Eonian, a couple Babymetal albums – his hand has been on many a metal production, and every one has been better for it. I’m personally a big fan of Jens’ work, to the point where I hired him to mix and master my band’s single Purgatory, and it was a good decision.
So you can imagine my excitement when he decided to branch out and let us mere mortals have a taste of his production style with his first product through Bogren Digital – the Jens Bogren Signature Cab IR Pack.
As a big fan, a metal guitarist, and a daily user and major proponent of IRs – especially for those of us who don’t have anywhere to properly mic up a physical guitar cab – I just HAD to try them out. These are mix-ready type processed cabs, so the idea is that they can be dropped into a mix for different applications – 27 cabs in total – so I tried them out, both guitar by itself, and in a full metal mix. I wasn’t disappointed with the results, and if you’ve got ears, neither will you be!
