Travis Miguel/ Atreyu

Different artists have various styles and Atreyu's guitarist Travis Miguel in this case, definitely has a different hip edge. Rather than the melodic pop or classical music, Atreyu focuses on alternative metal, hardcore punk, or how some people refer to it, symphonic black metal (Scandinavian Metal). No, this group is not from Scandinavia, but in actuality originated from Orange County. Atreyu started off with a big bang in 2002 when they came out with their debut album Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses. After this victorious and rather successful album, Atreyu decided to head home in 2003 and write and record their second album, The Curse. Was this album as successful as the first had been? Definitely.

Lead Sails and a Paper Anchor was released on August 28, 2007, and debuted at number 8 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 43,000 copies and they have been touring strong ever since.

Travis Miguel's signature ESP LTD guitar, the TM-600, is a double-cutaway style similar to ESP's Viper shape but with a harder edge and less tapering around the body and features the EMG-81 and EMG-85.
