any heavy- metal bands with outstanding bass lines?
i must have inspiration to write my own songs...
If you want groovy bass lines, they are hard to come by in metal. As far as my metal bass playing goes these are some of my favorite influences- Fear Factory, Death, Killswitch Engage, Tool, old Korn, Meshugga (polyrhythms).
I write all the super heavy stuff on my band, on bass. The cooler, more expressive, basslines that I use are usually written as an accompaniment to the guitar/vocals.
I lov the bass in Aces High (Iron Maiden)
Aghora, Cynic, anything with Steve Digiorgio on it, Symphony X, that's just a small start.
I'm disappointed Black Sabbath has not been mentioned.... remember... he said "outstanding" bass lines
Too right. I doubt anyone else will agree, but Cradle Of Filth's bass work deserves some credit too. Check out "Summer Dying Fast" (the original version) and "Malice Through The Looking Glass".
Yep, especially the new realese
Neurosis , Mastodon , Strapping Young Lad and Dillenger Escape Plan.
Check out Iron Maiden. Steve Harris has some tastey bass lines.
As someone already said Steve Harris is the man. John Myung's playing in Dream Theater (earlier stuff) is incredible. Also, I think that Eddie Jackson's playing in Queensryche is HIGHLY underrated. I'm not sure you can class them as heavy metal, but check out some early Kansas for some great lines to some progressive music. Especially tunes like Song for America, The Wall, and Paradox.
Any song by Spiral Architect conatins some of the craziest, and IMO, some of the most unique bass lines I've ever heard.
fear factory (undercurrent), Mastodon, Megadeth (five magics man! My last words is also sweet.), Opeth, Otep (yes they are different), Symphony X, Iron Maiden, Necrophagist, some Exodus...
Best of all though would have to be Black Sabbath, Geezer Butler is God!!!
a band around my parts is also pretty sweet. check them out at caveatmusic.com i recently picked up there EP, can't stop listening!
Big +1....Geezer, cool...
How come that nobody´s metioned Helloween!!!!
Also you should check out Annihilator´s Never Neverland
