Interests
Favorite bands :
I'll give most things a chance at least once, if I don't like it then you'll know, but I've become a lot more openminded of late. My bread and butter is progressive rock and metal, and my 15 (in no order) influential albums should offer some insight. Fear of a Blank Planet - Porcupine Tree, Blackwater Park - Opeth, And Justice for All - Metallica, Colors - Between the Buried and Me, Ashes Against the Grain - Agalloch, Mezzanine - Massive Attack, Octavarium - Dream Theater, Going for the One - Yes, The Blackening - Machine Head, Lateralus - Tool, A Fragile Hope - Devil Sold His Soul, The Adversary/angL/After - Ihsahn, In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson, From Fathoms - Gifts from Enola, Dopethrone - Electric Wizard
Favorite guitarists :
Pretty much the guitarists from the albums and bands I've listed above, as well as a fair few others who I can't be bothered to list. Tosin Abasi is shit hot however. I tend not to be too into technical ability over songwriting, I much prefer melody and tastefulness. Steve Morse is a good balance for me, mainly because he throws in lots of stylish fills and stuff like that, for true shredders Jason Becker is the man
Favorite bassists :
Flea, Cliff Burton, John Myung, Steve DiGiorgio, Les Claypool, Martin Mendez, Johan DeFarfalla, Chris Squire, Greg Lake, Lars Norberg, Jeroen Paul Thesseling, Chris Wolstenholme, Justin Chancellor, Dan Briggs, Steve Bailey, Martin Motnik, Colin Edwin and many others.
Favorite books :
I don't read as much as I should, but I'm a big fan of Clive Barker, Steven Erikson, Anne Rice, Philip Pullman, JRR Tolkien, Trudi Canavan, Stephen King, Friedrich Nietzsche, Dostoevsky, Edgar Allan Poe, HP Lovecraft and lots of others.
Favorite tv :
I barely watch TV
Favorite movies :
Too many to list or remember. My favourite movie of late is Requiem for a Dream

About Dopey_Trout
I'm Dechlan, lived in Edinburgh all my life, love my guitars first and foremost, I don't know what I'd do without them. My friends and brothers (and sisters) from other mothers come a close second of course. I'm not on this to much any more but feel free to drop me a line or whatever :)
