Fresh from the release of their latest album, Hijacking the Zeitgeist, US progressive metal four piece EXIST have launched a competition to win a brand new Ormsby guitar. The band has teamed up with the Australia-based guitar company to give away an Ormsby Hype GTI Royal Blue 7 String guitar from their collection. To be in with a chance of winning, fans are invited to show off their shredding skills by submitting a guitar solo for EXIST’s recent album track, Thief of Joy. More information and competition guidelines can be found HERE.

EXIST’s Max Phelps comments: “I’ve been playing Ormsby Guitars for the last two years and really love how they cover all of the bases for the variety of bands I play in (Exist, Death To All, Cynic). Since the majority of our listeners are likely musicians, we thought it would be cool to do something that would engage our fellow guitar nerds while simultaneously spreading awareness of both our new music and these amazing guitars from Australia. We’re looking forward to seeing all of the different perspectives and approaches on this portion of our song!”

Hijacking the Zeitgeist, which is out now via Prosthetic Records sees the EXIST expanding upon their extreme metal technicality and atmospherics with a more concise approach to songwriting, resulting in the most direct and emphatic album of their 14 year career.
