Guitarist with Scour, Bassist with Cattle Decapitation
Scour is a highly anticipated metal supergroup featuring Down & ex- Pantera singer Phil Anselmo, Pig Destroyer’s John Jarvis, Cattle Decapitation’s Derek Engemann, Animosity’s Chase Fraser, and Strong Intention’s Jesse Schobel. This black metal band is in the mold of the 90’s tremolo-picked Scandinavian scene, featuring very short songs with intense tempos.
Derek Engemann is best known as the bassist in Cattle Decapitation, but he plays guitar on the Scour project. Derek had this to say after touring with the Amptweaker TightMetal Pro:
“The Tight Metal Pro is the absolute perfect pedal for a traveling musician, especially for fly-in gigs. It’s reassuring to know that I can have my same tone on any amp that I plug it into. The effects loop/ lead boost is an awesome feature as well, in that I’m able to have all my lead tone pedals connected with just one button. When I switch it back, there’s no awkward decaying delay or feedback, which makes our breaks and stops super tight.”
“And the Bass TightMetal JR is quite the little beast….. the noise gate is a huge feature!“–Derek Engemann
