    Anyone hear of this guy? Apparently he plays bass guitar and sings, and that's the band!:eek:

    Me thinks me'll contact him about getting his EP.
  2. I think that there is only one guy playing in old man's child plus a drummer who does not belong to the band.

    There are actually tons of one man metal bands... Burzum, Ildjarn, and Leviathan to name a few....

    Xasthur to add another!!

    Plus, my avatar is Joe Preston from Thrones, which is mostly just him playing HEEEAAVVY Bass, and programmed drums.
  5. i think this is just him playing bass and singing though, rather than doing all the instruments himself. sounds interesting...

    Dammit how did i forget Xasthur. Man California has been pumping out some amazing black metal bands- Weakling, Leviathan, Xasthur. Too bad Weakling is gone, they are one of my favorite black metal bands. Leviathan on the hand is insanely amazing.

    Yes, that's really what caught my eye. I've heard of people recording all the instruments for their own songs, cool within itself, but the fact that this could be a one-cut project is where the feat seems to rest, just playing the bass, singing at the same time, and calling it a song without dubbing in guitars, keys, drums, or whatever. I definately want to check this guy out further.

    [add: I think "one man metal band" was somewhat of a misleading discriptor. It probably should be "one man, one cut metal band."]

    He plays a hamer slammer bass. A girl I used to date had one, and it was fantastic.
