How many ESPs will you see at Aftershock?

Question: how many ESPs will you see at Aftershock? Answer: a lot. Held this coming weekend (October 22/23) at Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA, the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival will be a good time for all who attend. If you’re going, keep your eye open for the following ESP players (and maybe more). 


SLAYER
These godlike being of thrash metal include frontman Tom Araya, who uses his own ESP Signature Series bass, and guitarist Gary Holt, who also has ESP and LTD Signature guitars (and uses them all).

ANTHRAX

PARKWAY DRIVE
Already huge in their home country of Australia, Parkway Drive is becoming an international sensation. Guitarists Jeff Ling and Luke Kilpatrick play on ESP E-II signature models that are based on the Horizon and M Series.

Both Dan Brown and Kyle Yocum, who hold down guitar duties for the Aussie band, are ESP players, respectively with the ESP E-II Eclipse and LTD TE-401FM.

Coming straight out of the Inland Empire in Southern California, Suicide Silence include two great ESP players: guitarist Mark Heylmun, who’s recently been playing a V guitar from the ESP Custom Shop, and bassist Danny Kenny, who plays an LTD F-415FM.

WHITECHAPEL
As the only band with four members who all have their own LTD Signature Series models, Whitechapel stands alone. Check out the signature instruments of guitarists Ben Savage, Zach Householder, and Alex Wade, and bassist Gabe Crisp.
