    He worked with Death and Cynic, and I really enjoyed his playing style. I loved his fretless sound, and the man also played a chapman stick. Obviously he had some jazz training, and I would love to know what happened to him.

    Oh, and if this thread degrades, it can become a "what ever happened to..." thread...

    I just got his first Gordian Knot CD, and it's damned good. I need to get his newer one too.
     
  5. He also wrote "A Dictionary of Bass Grooves" which is very accurate and expansive book.

    I have read that he was working in the studio where cynic recorded there album. And after there bassist left to play with ateist he joined the band.
    He seems like a jazz guy but there's a big leap from jazz to death metal, i wonder why he decided to play with them.
    I think he should add a bio section to his site...
    He plays stick on the nowegian band Spiral Architect's album

    The leap between jazz and death metal is smaller than you think. A lot of great metalbassists have some form of roots in Jazz.
     
  10. True!!! A very underrated musical style... and don't get me started in the similitudes between Death Metal and classical music...
