    ..and now i'm going to start playing fast metal. It's a stupid feeling, feels like i started play bass today. What do you guys think of him, robin (dont remember the last name)?
    I loved CoF for about 2/3 years ago, then i hated them and now like them again.

  8. *screams a Dani lyric*
    WOO!

    good stuff...

    I think it'd be fun to play that type of music...except a pick would be pretty much required to get that sharp-tone that CoF goes for.(i.e "Sleepless")

    They made some descent albums, then started repeating themself. They then to be a terrible live band..
    The bassplayer quoted "Bass shouldn't be heared, it should be felt" :eyebrow:

    Anyway, I suggest "Cruelty and the beast" if you want to start listening, defenitly their best album. Pay attention to the lyricks too, because they are pretty impressive :)

    Yes, Tyr is great, although he didn't play on the last album, the drummer plays the bass on their last album I believe..
     
  12. JH,dude...don't even start,not in a good mood.

    I say required to play a pick not because I think fingers are slower,or whatever but it provides the "sharp" tone that cuts through well,especially in this genre. Listen to "Sleepless" and you'll get what im talking about.
