what bass did you use on Epic?
The booklet indicates that more than one was used (5 string and fretless)...but I would also like to know this.
I used a 5 string fretted Warwick of some sort and an Ibanez Gary Willis fretless.
While we're on the subject, I always wondered why the recording of the bass wasn't in the "Making of Epic" video...
thanks! i liked your low-frequencies on that album.
I don't know why the fans generally don't like EPIC very much... for me that album sets a evolution to the sound of Borknagar... I don't know... I just feel Epic has a better production... yeah that's obvious... but on the musics of EPIC there's no gaps. everything is filling in the songs ... well not that I'm right... it's just how I perceive it. epic is as great as quintessence, taoc, empiricism in my oppinion
Yeah that bugged me too! I was hoping to see Asgeir hop off the kit and start rocking some bass tracks.
The bass tracks were done in a hurry so I probably just forgot to put up my camera.
Is that Lars Norberg's GW Sig bass?
Not a question but still worth saying anyway: for those of you who don't know Asgeir will be doing session drums on Code's new album.
Who are Code you ask: http://www.myspace.com/codeblackmetal
...yes this was an excuse to plug one of my favorite bands but still massive thanks to Asgeir for stepping up to the task.
which fans? Most people I've seen talk about the album have liked it alot. It's my favorite Borknagar album.
holy shit YOU'RE PLAYIN FOR CODE!? AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE THEM AND I LOVE ASGEIR!
But what happened to Lancelot?
By You, you mean Asgeir right?
well epic is pretty good, but the bass isnt something out of this world. everything else really stands out though.
How did you guess?
That was nice that he let you use it... What is it with all the Spiral Architect guys and being able to play just about any instrument invented???
Oyvind sings but can also play drums, guitar and bass
Asgeir, you can obviously drum, but now I see u can play bass as well, and I've heard you can play guitar well as well...
I'm sure both guitarists can play other things as well as Lars... My hat comes off to you guys!!!
EDIT: +rep for the photo and the cool Nevermore shirt...
Well, I'm originally a guitarist – and play more guitar than drums. Maybe I'll have my thrash album out next year.
Really??? I never knew that! Are you as good as Steinar and Andreas, and play drums cos you're much better than them at drums, or do you just sorta play guitar for fun now?
