Sean Long/ While She Sleeps
""If you want to dive into an array of angry sonic dimensions, in my eyes the 57-66 in unbeatable in doing so. It was a key to the tone I'd been searching for since I was young as fuck. Thinking I'd never find a glass sharp gain on fire, but with the clarity of any professional musical idol I could think of! Inside my Ibanez FR, its the perfect clarity of metal and bliss.""
Sean Long plays guitar for While She Sleeps. He's been playing guitar for round about 9 years now and its safe to say that "Heavy" or "alternate" music caught his attention at a very young age. Listening to bands such as Rage Against The Machine, Slipknot, Blink 182, Rancid and Thrice. These were the baseline bands which would give him guidance. As time progressed bands like Darkest Hour and Killswitch Engage started to become of interest and by this point he had already started playing guitar. The tones some of these guys had were unreal and he really couldn't understand what they had or did that would create such tones. It always interested him as to how these bands created these tones. This is how he fell upon EMG pickups. He's have never played a different type of pickup since.
