    My band wrote a song that ends with a solo section for each guitarist and bass. This is something I don't see very often in metal songs so it's been difficult too find some inspiration. Luckily bass players like Dominic Forest Lapointe (Beyond Creation, Augury) exist but other than "Omnipresent Perception" and a few of his solos in Earthborne Evolution there isn't much bass soloing going on in metal. If you know of metal songs with solo sections that include a bass solo please post them here.

    Before you all start suggesting Alex Webster solos I ask that you only suggest solos that are longer and not just the riff played by the bassist and no one else. I only have 4 more measures to write for the end of this 16 measure solo and need all the help I can get! :bassist:

    What about some Metallica?
    Orion - there's a lot in there that you might not realize is actually bass on first listen:


    Call of Ktulu - not really a bass solo, but lots of cool leads:

    Iron Maiden with Steve Harris. Stranger in a Strange Land always did it for me!
