Hey guys i've noticed that out of all the death metal bands I listen to I think suffocation has the most brutal live sound i've ever heard, any ideas on what these guys use other than the amps? After watching MANY live vids and searching i've found out that since their self tilted record they have used triple xxx's for their studio even though they sound WAY better live. Like that right there to me sounds AMAZING and I see they were using 6505's (6505+ or 6505?) and I know that terrence uses dimarzio super distortions in his guitars and guy uses SD distortions. Any info on the super distortion? It doesn't really seem like a pickup used for tech death but terrence makes it work so it makes me wonder. Also they MUST be using a boost/overdrive of some sort I mean does a 6505 sound that tight and brutal on its own? I've only played for like 2 years or so and my playing is kind of like me playing as fast as possible while throwing in a groovier riff or less heavy riff (kinda like opeth) in while trying to practice or make up stuff and I really really HATE my current amp for what I try to play, it just doesn't have enough gain and isn't tight and clear enough to play what I want. So any info on gear they use would be helpful as their basically my favorite band along with death, obscura and opeth.
