Early 2020 saw the announcement of Bobby Keller's new solo project (in collaboration with drummer and engineer Ben Johnson), and with it came his first single Reign in Fire, a furious and sonically diverse instrumental piece that puts his virtuosic abilities on full display.
Having shouldered lead guitar duties with Florida metallers Meka Nism since 2010 - performing alongside Evanescence, Gojira, Hellyeah and more in the process - it's clear to see how Keller has honed his razor-sharp chops.
If you're keen to see said chops in action, today's your lucky day, as he's filmed a red-hot playthrough of Reign in Fire exclusively for Guitar World. From ethereal clean lines to monstrous down-tuned riffs and face-melting solo sections, Keller blazes through the track with brutal efficiency.
He wields two ESP electric guitars for this one - an Eclipse and a LTD H-1001FR - because let's face it, one guitar is is simply not enough. Each is fitted with a set of EMG 57/66 pickups, and runs through a Driftwood Mini Nightmare 45w amp. His signal chain also includes a Lonely Ghost Delay/Reverb/Boost Pedal.
"I really wanted to get up close and personal with my style of guitar playing on one of my favorite songs that I have written to date," Keller says.
