Ibanez instrument 'influenced Cradle guitarist's sound'
Former Cradle of Filth axeman James McIlroy has explained that an Ibanez guitar helped to influence his sound as he moved away from the famous band and towards his own group Chaosanct.
"Picking up the old Ibanez Universe I had one day led to a whole load of ideas and really got me away from Cradle, forcing me to play differently again," he remarked.
Ibanez is one of the most popular electric guitar manufacturers among metal bands and the popularity of the Universe during the 1990s was influenced by the likes of Korn, Fear Factory and Meshuggah.
Legendary virtuoso Steve Vai, one of the company's signature artists, still uses Universe models to this day.Posted on 15 Apr 2009 11:22 to category : Band / Celebrity News
