Check out Todd Biddwell of the thrash metal band RUIN showing off his bass rig. Todd uses and abuses EMG pickups, Ampeg B5R, and 80's SVT 4 x 10 Ampeg Bass Cab.
Ruin have captivated audiences with their reflective and compelling lyrics along with their devastating musical precision. RUIN was founded by brothers Rich and Craig Carey (who perform vocals/guitars and drums, respectively), who were later joined by guitarist Kevin Whitman and bassist Todd Bidwell, rounding out the current line-up. RUIN has released three full length albums independently: Hands of Enmity in 2007, Human Moral Deception in 2009, and of course, Rite of Passage. To date, RUIN has supported reputable metal artists such as Strapping Young Lad, Stuck Mojo, Goatwhore and Fear Factory.
