Destroyer, guitarist of Polish Death Metal pioneers HATE picked up a couple of Vortex guitars for recent North American Tour, sharing stage with SEPULTURA, MELECHESH, NEVERMORE, ROTTING CHRIST, BELPHEGOR and many others.
As posted on the band's website "My new guitars give me one hundred percent satisfaction when it comes to sound, quality and design, and even more if it comes to comfort and playability. Playing so much live I need reliable instruments. After our meeting in Fernandes headquarters in Hollywood I knew that this was the best choice for me. I am glad being the part of Fernandes family" - Destroyer.
