Yeah, I was actually thinking his picking technique looked odd as well. Can't argue with the results though...Do tech death bands only hire bassists who either play fretless or a million strings? :lol:
Great player, and that's some pretty odd picking technique he has. I don't really dig the music too much, but it's always good to watch someone who can play darn well!
:agreed: I love his style of playing. Its so great to actually hear the bass, and he is playing the most awesome stuff. I'm bummed that he isn't in the band anymore, but they found another guy who plays fretless.Yeah they have gotten a new bassist recently. This guy is nuts though, and its his playing that got me into Beyond Creation.
See I like that in particular about the bass. I think its pretty awesome.I just learned about these dudes recently when sniffing around Spotify's related artist section for Soreption.
They own so hard. Evidently, fretless bass in tech death is becoming a "thing". I haven't decided if I like it yet, but this is indeed pretty sick.
The higher register WERRMPS and PWOMMPS could be controlled with a multiband compressor and kept lower in the mix for my tastes. It's like, one second I'm nodding along vigorously to a sick groove section, then out of nowhere there's a bass swell all like SWERRRMPY SWERRRMP. :scratch:
It's one of the reasons I loved Obscura when I first heard them, randomly hearing Jeroen's bass go WWWOOOOOMMMMM when he was doing a fretless slide. That sound is the very reason I'm looking to get a fretless at some pointSee I like that in particular about the bass. I think its pretty awesome.
