a musician, usually a guitarist, addicted to ridiculously high amounts of gain/overdrive on their amp and always in the pursuit of more ball-shaking, pinch squealing, brutally chunky and thick, ear splitting, face melting, body crushing action, that is distortion
Any guitarist who has had an amp and turned it all the way to 10 wishing it would go to 11!!! Van Halen, Dimebag Darrell, Angus Young, Me!!! Amps such as Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier, Bogner Uberschall, ENGL Fireball, EVH 5150, Krank Krankenstein+, Soldano SLO 100, Peavey 6505, Bugera 6262
Alex: Eddie's been fuckin with his amp and now it sounds better than ever!!
Eddie: ALL IT NEEDED WAS MORE VESPENE GAS, I'M A GAINIAC!!!
