No way! Metal bassists don't use all the open strings. It ain't jazz!
I never realized there were so many strings on a bass!!
Back in the days of rec.music.makers.bass there was a tale of a band not allowed to take breaks, Gloria, and a urinal. I couldn't find it the last time I searched, but I bet it's still out there
This. I generally try to avoid playing open strings. It makes those rare times I do that much more special.
I recommend that the guy in the video go STRINGLESS and see if that improves his "metal" technique...I suspect it will at least improve his sound...
You will see many very stupid things on the internet. This is one of them.
What's the best open string for metal?
Definition of open string
: a string in stairs having its upper edge cut to fit underneath the steps, and its ends overlapping the edge
that's Heavy Metal - overlapping the edge
Funny thread. Thanks to the OP and to those who responded with serious replies.

And some of them can be pretty badass. But not for metal bass parts.
