I've noticed after watching many documenteries about the history of metal, that there has been a series of metal bassists that use a slap technique. I quite like slap bass and I really want to know if there are any modern metal bands that still incorporate slap bass in their music?

I know that Periphery, TesseracT, and Monuments utilize slap bass for sure. There's probably many others too but that's what comes off the top of my head!

Well, Fieldy from Korn is a biggie. But, also what the others mentioned, especially SikTh.

Infectious Grooves and Suicidal Tendencies.

If you're into death metal, Cerebral Bore seem to use slap a fair amount!

Well... pretty much everybody I came to mention, has been mentioned. Protest The Hero, Periphery, Korn, Mudvayne, occasionally Between the Buried and Me and Scale the Summit.

At first I thought thread was titled "stop bass in modern metal."

Insert your own joke here.
