Hello! I've been wanting to try and connect with some bassists who play black metal for awhile now. I feel the genre is somewhat ignorant to us when compared to our 6 string counterparts. While I don't currently play in a black metal band, I jam on stuff by myself and attempt to write a song or two. I'd really like to hear from guys who are active in the genre. It would be tremendous to learn some new techniques to get a more genuinely black metal sound. Obviously much of black metal basslines are just quarter notes and simple stuff, I'd like to learn about the more serious and technical aspects involved. Maybe not technical, but just the stuff you've learned which has helped you along the way. Thanks and I guess I may as well list some of my fave bands! Burzum Windir Drudkh Enslaved Darkthrone Temnozor Graveland Ildra Dissection (Blackened death but whatever) Nocternity ...many others NOTE* I do realize a thread of the same name exists, though its been inactive for a long while and didn't really deal with actual playing.
