Andy Lutz (War//Plague-vocals and guitar)
SPB: Do you use any special equipment to emphasize your vocals when playing live?
Lutz: Generally, I just use a Shure SM58 microphone. I like to throw some subtle effects on vocals, like maybe a little delay, and then have some bourbon to warm them up, but that's about it. My vocal style has been an ever-evolving process over the years, but I'm influenced by people like Tom G. Warrior, Max Cavalera and Jaz Coleman, just to name a few. I try to focus on attack, range and see where I can push myself.
For my guitar rig, I play a Gibson SG Gothic with a modified Mesa Triple Rectifier and a Mesa cab. No pedals. That's it, keep it loud, simple and aggressive.
