    Might I say that the bass you built to Steve sounds awsome? Very nice indeed!

    I'm sure SDG is a given

    I like Jeroen Paul Thesseling, I'm a huge Obscura Fan, But Most of you already know about him aswell.

    Not really metal, but here's a great bass player from my country (Thiago do Espirito Santo from Brazil):





    Also, killer guitarist and drummer BTW :)

    No idea if hes been mentioned since I really can't be bothered trawling through all these pages, but has anyone mentioned Greg Christian? His basswork on Urotsukidoji from testament's "Low" record is fucking phenominal!

    in the album Symphony Masses: Ho Drakon Ho Megas from the earlie death metal days of therion, a guy named Andreas Wallan Wahl played some really wicked basslines..
    and a example in black metal, a genre that dont have so many good bassist, you guys should give a listen to the Necromantia album, Scarlet Evil Witching Black, the whole cd was record only with bass and sounds nice

    Surprised nobody's mentioned him thus far (and if anybody did, then I missed it), but Jeroen Paul Thesseling of Obscura plays a six string fretless (he's a Warwick endorsee too :kickass:). The dude is a Dutch bassist who used to play in Pestilence, and he kicks major ass.

    Now that I've mentioned Obscura may I just add that they released an album named Cosmogenesis on Relapse Records recently and the album just... eats posers and shits razors!! It's one of the best technical death albums I've heard in a long time. Check them out at myspace.com/realmofobscura (my fav tune is "Universe Momentum")

    BTW first post :loco:

    Well indeed you missed the part where we've been talking about him and latest Obscura album.
    He's amazing and "Cosmogenesis" is absolutely AWESOME! Can't wait to have in my hands and ears :)

    That was really random for Naglfar to pop in, One of my favorite bands.

    Anyways...


    One underrated bassist is Jon Vesano


    Jeff Paulick is a very young and up and coming bass player.

    Some of the best Bass/vocal performances I've seen, he's like the metal version of geddy lee.

    Dan Briggs from BTBAM is great although whether they are metal or not can be debated. Ryan Martinie from Mudvayne is another excellent metal (on LD 50 anyway, which is their most impressive album overall) bassist who has been mentioned in this thread I think.

    Joe Lester from Intronaut and Arthur von Nagel from Cormorant both have very good, very fitting melodic parts.

    Excellent choice! The Aurora Veil is still impressive. Jeroen is great too, but I wanna hear him playing something more original than Obscura... it's too damn death-necro-cynic IMO.

    I'll put my two favorites in, specifically in terms of playing ability.

    Mike Flores- Origin

    Jeff Hughell- Brain Drill

    It's too bad the current death metal albums are mixed so the bass is drowned out by the drums. Someone mentioned Sound of Perseverance, I always think of Human by Death being the album that does the most justice to the bass work in terms of the sound that comes through. I would like to hear more albums mixed like this.
