Gear Gods has hosted a new playthrough video feature on Vancouver, British Columbia-based progressive/death metal act NECK OF THE WOODS.
The new Gear Gods article showcases NECK OF THE WOODS guitarists Dave Carr and Travis Hein deploying the scorching "Nailbiter," which hails from the band's recently-released debut full-length, The Passenger. With multiple camera angles capturing the slick, dueling axemanship, the video is paired with a breakdown of their PRS guitars, Orange stacks, and effects setups.
NECK OF THE WOODS' blend of progressive, groove-laden, technical death metal is delivered through nine crushing tracks on The Passenger, drawing comparisons to the likes of Misery Signals, Opeth, Darkest Hour, Between The Buried And Me, Gojira, and more. The album was recorded at Rain City Recorders by Stu McKillop, produced by Stu McKillop and NECK OF THE WOODS. The Passenger was released through Basick Records in mid-September as the band toured across Canada in support of the album.
