Ashdown has announced the launch of a new Geezer Butler signature EQ/distortion stompbox, the Pedal Of Doom. 

The new pedal uses the preamp from Butler’s Ashdown Head Of Doom as its basis but was reportedly inspired by the evolving tone of the 'Sabbath classic Hand Of Doom (from the metal icons' second album Paranoid,) in which Butler’s tone steps-up from the slower, grooving intro into the more frenetic, distorted sections.
