Expert Review

Slayer guitarist Kerry King and guitar manufacturer B.C. Rich have spent more than two decades working together to bring metalheads great options for their own axes. The Metal Master Warlock is just one of the fruits of their labor, complete with the distinct B.C. Rich jagged body shape that screams metal before you even hear a single note. A basswood body and maple neck provide the right timbre for the kind of growling tone that has made Slayer one of the defining metal bands of all-time. The guitar’s bolt-on neck construction ensures players can easily make adjustments to their instrument for years to come.

Despite what you may think, the guitar’s BDSM pickups don’t stand for anything too overtly dominating, rather it stands for Broad Dynamic Sonically Matched, capturing a wide (or broad) range of frequencies and then matched in pairs in both the neck and bridge positions to guarantee a well-balanced spectrum of tone. So come to think of it, they DO produce a sound that can be as punishing as the name might infer. In fact, if there’s one thing that this axe excels at, it’s pure aggression, and there are not many things more aggressive-looking than the beveled edge around the contours of the guitar. It’s a surefire way to turn heads onstage before you even hit your first note.Rating: 4/5
