Rigged: Extinction Level Event – Gear Gods Exclusive

Extinction Level Event is over the top, and they don’t care. Overkill is a word that is meaningless to them, the boundaries of “good taste” don’t apply, and “balanced” is a nuance I doubt they care for. With no fewer than 3 bass players in the band and not a guitar to be seen, “tradition” was left in their wake long, long (okay they’ve only been a band for a couple months so not that damn long) ago.

I’m sure you’re at least curious to hear what they’re all about, even if you think you won’t like it on some misguided principle. You’re probably (because you’re on this site right now) most curious what their rigs are like and how they manage a triply bass attack. Well, lucky for you we’ve got you covered with this Gear Gods exclusive rundown of their studio gear:

I like that they not only take you through each integral part of their sound, but also give you a bit of what it sounds like. They go in-depth about both their recorded tones AND their live sounds, which is something I’m always asking bands, with mixed results.

Here’s a Q&A with the bassists that will answer some of your other burning questions as well:

And last but not least, here’s a teaser featuring songs from their forthcoming EP, The Catalyst:

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.
