If you were one of those that cried foul over "Stay Frosty" not being quite heavy enough for your tastes, then check out the below clip of another new track, "China Town." So far, this is easily the heaviest thing we've heard from A Different Kind of Truth, bordering on straight-ahead metal.
NAMM-related new-product news is still arriving daily, including VHT's introduction of the VHT Special 12/20RT amp. The new model is pedal-friendly and has selectable power ranges — plus all-tube spring reverb and tremolo. The street price starts at $649.99.
Guitar World visited the Peavey booth at last week's 2012 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California, to check out the Peavey AT-200 guitar with Antares Auto-Tune built in.

Notice how out of tune the guitar is before the Auto-Tune feature is engaged.
