Claustrofobia guitarist Marcus D’angelo featured in new episode of Jackson Guitars “Behind The Riff”

Jackson Guitars has uploaded a new episode of “Behind The Riff” , in which former Claustrofobia guitarist, Marcus D’Angelo, takes you through the story of a riff from the band’s song “The Encrypted”, second track of the new album ‘Unleeched’

“So it’s a huge pleasure to be able, through Jackson’s official media, to explain with examples how I developed my way of playing Metal with this Brazilian and South American flavor, not only bringing the experience of mixing rhythms but also applying it in a hybrid way without losing the essence and true metal spirit. So the bottom line is not only about bringing the Brazilian Metal style to the world but representing and expressing the Metal from the tropics in general”, says Marcus D’Angelo.

Jackson began back in the late 1970s, when heavy music experienced a flamboyant and virtuosic resurgence in popularity and a small Southern California guitar repair shop became the epicenter of a new level of shred-approved excellence. Ever since then, Jackson guitars have been universally lauded as the metal guitars

About the lasting partnership with, Marcus D’Angelo says: I truly have an amazing relationship with Jackson Guitars since 1994, these masterpieces complete me in all the ways and in addition to being the best guitars for my proposal, the brand’s ethical position represents me a lot: Attitude, Truthfulness and Loyalty”.

It is also possible to hear the tracks from the new album “Neuro Massacre” and “Força Além da Força”, on Jackson’s official playlist on Spotify. The latter is a surprising version of the song “Strength Beyond Strength”, by Pantera, which was adapted into Portuguese by ClaustrofobiaLISTEN HERE.
