Let’s Watch Animals As Leaders Tosin Abasi Jam for 17 Minutes on this Obscure Guitar

We have this “Jam Sessions” tag that I can slap on news posts for categorization, but it doesn’t come up too often. This is a site that mainly covers metal, hardcore, and other heavier styles of music where musicians don’t often get together in a room and improv. So I usually wind up applying that tag to videos that barely meet the criteria.


That said, here’s Tosin Abasi from Animals As Leaders actually jamming. True he’s not playing with anyone, but it’s nice to see regardless. That guitar he’s playing on is a “Liuteria GNG Brea Dr.V signature Absynth Amaranth” which is just about the fanciest-sounding name for a guitar I’ve ever heard. It probably owns an ascot.

  • Something seems really off about this video. Everything looks warped and distorted, doesn’t it?
