So, i hold the bass fairly high up, its just more comfortable. Out of curiousity, who are some death/black metal bassists who play up high. I know alit of guys in tech bands like cynic and necrophagist do but anyone else
guitar solo - "meh, every song got one"
bass solo - "OMGZ0R U IS PRO MENZ"

I think Alex Webster does, but then again its been years since i've seen a cannibal corpse video. If you mean you're after bassists who wear their bass very high and still manage to thrash around, while possibly not to your musical tastes, Dan Briggs does that (arguebly :p ) very well.

bassist from rise to remain holds his bass up very high almost near his chin

Arif Mirabdolbaghi has his bass up quite high. Not exactly death metal, but it's the closet I could think of.

Exactly or still looks cool atleast. I know webster does but i think its more of an average height. But look at ihsahn from emperor (he plays guitar but ya know) he plays way up and is still a badass

Most "advanced" players do it because it is more comfortable and lets you play better, after a point you look rather silly though.

Joe Lester, Lars Norberg, Arthur von Nagel, Jeroen Thesseling, Tony Choy, Roger Patterson (I've seen rehearsal videos and such), Eric Langlois, Forest Lapointe, Erlend Caspersen, Steve DiGiorgio...

It's all about the abalone. You can't play metal without it. Mother of pearl? MOTO? GTFO!

@LoweRider and 09phillt: ...What?!

@CurbstompBass: That's not all true. It's all based on comfortable, has nothing to do with skill. It's like saying all "advanced" guitarists hold their guitar high up. I've seen many, many very talented guitarist hold it at their waist.
PROUD VEGETARIAN!
