If the NYC metal underground is a beehive, then Colin Marston’s Woodhaven studio is the queen’s lair. Bands from all over North America travel to Menegroth, the Thousand Caves, to partake of Marston’s signature clear, meaty tones, and to commune with this unassuming virtuoso—on guitar, bass and the “12-string Hell-Harp” also known as the Warr Guitar—who spends his spare time crafting avant-garde metal masterpieces of his own with Krallice, Dysrhythmia, Behold… the Arctopus and an elusive one-man band, Indricothere.
