    Hey All,
    So in a couple months I have to play 3 pieces of music for my college, 2 I've picked (one modal swing and one blues) and now I have a 3rd choice of a "Contemporary style."
    I chose metal.
    So I guess the only thing is that I'd enjoy playing a song that either has a bass solo, or a great bass line to compliment the song, and my playing.

    So far, I've had a couple of thoughts, including:

    Into Eternity - Beginning of the End
    Necrophagist - Only Ash Remains
    Protest The Hero - Bone Marrow
    Something by Angra
    Something by Blind Guardian
    Something by Bodom
    Something by Ensiferum
    Something by Helloween

    Basically I guess something power metal, melodeath or generally melodic... I'm not sure, just wanted to hear some opinions!

    Of the stuff you listed, I'd pick PTH, that song is awesome...and it covers several different styles in one song. The Necrophagist song seems technically more difficult, so if you wanted to show off more, I'd pick that one.
