The ’90s were a time of cross-pollination in heavy music with the likes of Nine Inch Nails and Ministry melding industrial and metal textures to great popularity. Stabbing Westward were another successful, if less visible act in the same vein. Founding member Christopher Hall is seen here with the Ibanez Talman, another product of that decade. The band was riding their breakthrough release Wither Blister Burn & Peel when this ad ran in Guitar World, March 1997.
