Patoma Music has developed a range of diamond-encrusted guitar picks that apparently will “elevate guitarists playing at any level” thanks to their unique performance.

Outside of the journalism realm, you can find him writing angular riffs in progressive metal band, Prognosis, in which he slings an 8-string Strandberg Boden Original, churning that low string through a variety of tunings. He's also a published author and is currently penning his debut novel which chucks fantasy, mythology and humanity into a great big melting pot.
