Rory Alsop
(moderator)

Lead guitarist and petrolhead with Scottish Industrial rock trio Metaltech (and our alter-ego folk band Acoustech)

  • headlined the inaugural Orkney Rock Festival in 2014
  • nominated for Best Metal Act at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards 2011 (came 2nd)
  • nominated for Best Group and Best Loud Track at the Scottish New Music Awards 2011

Been gigging for 25 years, taught guitar on and off. Played a lot of the Scottish music festivals (Rock Ness, Wickerman, Belladrum etc), supported bands like Alec Empire, KMFDM, Angelspit, Psydoll. Headlined all over Scotland.

Play classical, rock, blues, metal, spanish, slide...

On stage usually use Ibanez (7 string RG7321 and Joe Satriani signature models), or a 1989 Charvel Predator with a Dimebucker pickup through a Line 6 HD500 and a DigiTech Whammy, sometimes with a CryBaby. For the songs requiring fire I use a BC Rich Warlock with pyro attachments!

Generally DI'ed straight into the venue backline, or where we need to amplify - generally Marshall heads through Laney 4x10s.

  • Sonar and Cubase are my preferred audio platforms.
