Ben Ellis 2014

Guitar wizard Ben Ellis of UK melodic extreme metallers Bloodshot Dawn has proudly announced that he is now an official endorsee of Carillion Guitars.


Ben comments, “What an awesome way to start the year! Here is my custom Carillion ‘Raven’, based on their ‘Polaris 7’ model. This guitar looks and sounds absolutely unreal! Just look at that inlay! What. The. Fuck!?”

Ben continues, “For the past year or so I have been very fortunate to work with Carillion, testing prototypes, dreaming up outlandish guitars, and generally geeking out about all things guitar… So it’s a real pleasure to finally have one that I can keep at home. I’ve already taken this beast on our recent tours across the UK and Japan, and also recorded some of my solos on the ‘Demons’ album too!


Bloodshot Dawn released their second album ‘Demons’ late last year to critical acclaim. You can stream the album in full right here:
