Musician Demonstrates the Most Popular Metal Guitar Effects While Giving Each a Humorous Tagline

Most Used Effects in Metal

Guitarist and music producer Nik Nocturnal aka Nik Popovic amusingly demonstrated what each of the most popular guitar effects in metal sounded like while simultaneously describing each one with a silly name or tagline on overlay. For example, the harmonizer effect became “No Brad, we don’t need a second guitarist”, the tremolo was called “The Lazy Picker” and the Wah -“Dude, it makes every solo better”.
