lamb of god


Haha.
No.
Bass follows guitar in pretty much all of their songs.
I wouldn't call Lamb of God "easy"

Lamb of God isn't too easy, as John Campbell follows the guitar lines pretty much. Pretty fast stuff - not too technical, but you gotta have a fast left hand and pretty solid picking technique.


In terms of real metal bands, however:

Black Sabbath
Most Iced Earth
Slayer
Judas Priest
Amon Amarth
Dimmu Borgir
Motorhead

dude, most sabbath songs are outrageous on bass...might be slow, but its complicated

dragonforce ain't bad, just don't play 16th notes like he does, play 1-2 notes per measure.

(flame vest) Godmack isnt bad, pink floyd is easy, maiden if you like triplets, bodom is fair

Ibanez Soundgear 300 DX
Digitech BP 80

i was mocking his taste in music.

i am fully aware of how the bass does that. it doesnt qualify as hard, but not nessacrarily simple.

in other words, i was being an asshole

Tho lamb of god, a7x, and KSE arent metal Metalcore, and pop metal basically.

Though if i wanna go to Dragonforce in march/april when they come here, i have to put up with 3 of those types of bands (KSE being one of em)

^ Not Metal?!?!?!?! I dont think so I ****ing hate lamb of god and bascically everything listed in this discussion...

....but All those bands you listen are definitely metal and not metalcore maybe pop metal but metal core is like Between the Buried and Me or Glass Casket. Now those are 2 good bands.

But to Each his own so Im not insulting anyone's taste in music I would never do that.

As far as easy metal bands they've all been listen.
#18
Killswitch.Engage and Lamb of God are most assuredly metalcore, as are Trivium are every other "metal" band that trendy kiddies these days adore.

judging by how you hate all bands listed in this discussion so far, i doubt you have any taste in metal. dont tell us how its classified. I'm pretty much positive i know more about metal then you, but you know more about [insert crazybassists favorite genre here] then me. but lets keep this discusion on topic, aye?

Anthrax has some easy bass lines, and if you're looking into some "harder than easy" stuff, then look into some Pantera bass lines. Rex is an animal

Threadstarter said easy, not psycho balls hard.
Slayer is easy when your just jacking around but when you try and play it in a band it's hard to try and sync everything.
Most Maiden is at least intermediate to advanced.
Lamb of God would go under psycho balls
System of a Down is farely simple
Metallica's only easy songs were after Cliff died (RIP)
Judas Priest is annoyingly easy
GNR is semi-easy and sounds better than any of the other easy bands
My last one will be Van Halen because i'm tired of typing

Lamb of god is not pyscho balls hard.
playing in a band doesnt effect the simplicity of your playing, it oly demands you feel the music more.
I agree on maiden, but some stuff (run to the hills) and the trooper are balls easy.

van halen isnt metal.

praise the lord by dying fetus is one psycho balls hard though scales they used in song are simple and straight forward but the tempo of the song really makes it tough
