necrophagist is out of my league and i should add that i dont have a 5 string =]


i found out that opeth is pretty fun

I didn't think death metal was meant to be fun...

I haven't played anything except Master of puppets by Metallica
They're death metal arent they?

not death, but definately heavy .. Electric Wizard. check their third album, Dopethrone. Funeralopolis should fill your needs. its a different line-up nowadays but still heavy and sluggish.

also look into Sleep (Jerusalem/Dopesmoker) and Om. Pelican has also had their bass heavy moments. check the song Mammoth. its exactly what it says. pure massive drone heavy riffs.

+1. And anything by Death, or anything that has Steve DiGorgio playing on it.

I really hope that was sarcasm

to TS with four strings you could try some morbid angel

Try some cannibal corpse. I think hammer smashed face was already suggested, which is a good one, but most of his stuff is pretty cool. One of the newer songs, something about revenge, has a tap bassline which is kind of cool. Anyone know the name of the song Im talking about? Its off Kill.

The Philosopher - Death. Amazing basslines in there.

I disagree Slipknot is more technical than Necrophagist and more brutal than Suffocation, that's why I do hardcore dances to it with my 14 year old friends.

I concur. Pretty much any Death songs are great to play.

Try Atheist and Cynic, both bands have very good bass work, but might be a little complex depending on your skill level.


i commend you sir...very good post

you deserve a cookie

Atheist and Cynic rule the death metal bass lines. period.

might wanna try some Lamb of God. they are not death metal, and i dont care for them, but they do have some cool basslines
