Yeah! nightmare kick ass! The world, shian, raison detre, Gianism Shichi and alumina are great! I have no idea what the rest of their songs are called coz windows media player named them all in apanese on my MP3 player!!! is there a paticular song you want the settings for, their discography varies quite a bit. Is it 'the world' you're talkig about? laugh.gif Yomi's an ass kickin singer!

And I would KILL for hitsugis and Sakitos guitars!!!!!!!! blink.gif blink.gif blink.gif




The one Sakitos playing in the video for the world is nicer than this one though! I love the red staned white ash top on hitsugis Haooomaru!

I think most of the time its just distortion, maybe with some reverb etc. They sometimes have more guitar tracks running at once then their are guitarists so sometimes its hard to distinguish between them (like the phantom acoustic player in shian biggrin.gif ) , so theirs probable a lot of studio editing on the albums, check out some live vids of whatever song on youtube it might be easier to hear what ort of distortion/effects are being used. But usually they have those 'phantom' gitars playing in the backround.

And if your talking about raison detre I have absolutly no idea, sounds like they recorded it from an amp in an elastic bucket!? laugh.gif or maybe its flange. mellow.gif



EDIT: Im really bored so I thought Id post some links for those that have never heard of them:

Gianism shichi

If you want to get their exact sound hisugi uses a DIEZEL VH4 Head and sakito uses a VHT Deliverance D120H head. But they're quite expesive tongue.gif

idk how they can come up with such simple solos that just sound so kickass. and + i need to get a job b4 i start buying pedals. The world or Tokyo shounen are probably my favorite
