    I'm pretty sure the bass isn't real, but I wanna know, is this even physically possible to do finger style?

    I don't mean Anything Bad by this, but why would it not be possible to do finger style? I know a Few metal guys that play ONLY fingers and they have learned to use 3 and 4 fingers on their right hand to be able to hit triples, and even Quads. I think it is TOTALLY possible! ;):bassist:

    Well said indeed. Idk it's just so complex and fast paced. Everything has to be spot on or it would sound totally off. It doesn't matter though, I'm pretty sure the drums and bass are programmed if I remember correctly. My friend researched the guy. He's a single dude out in Russia that plays an 8 string guitar

    The drums totally sound electronic, or really compressed.
    If the bass is programmed, that's pretty good because it doesn't seem very obvious to me.

    I thought the same but my friend from what he said found an article saying the bass and drums were fake. Which is kinda believable because if you listen the tone changes drastically at parts (could be different takes for different vibes) and you never hear a touch of fret chatter or anything you would hear from real bass playing, it's all perfect notes with bass tone.

    Sounds a little like slap bass at parts.
