    Howdie ye all!

    I am seeing Suffocation live this summer (@graspop metal meeting, are there gonna be any TB'rs there?). I read all sorts of crazy stuff about their bassplayer, Chris Richards, 4finger technique at blasphemous speeds and stuff like that :scowl: ...Is he worth checking out? If he really is that good then I'll be there, front row! (no matter how many überdeath metal dudes there'll be in my back)...
     

  2. he's very good, everyone in suffocation is. not as creative as digiorgio or langlois. but very good.

    Death metal shows are so annoying cause of all the longhaired sweaty dudes that think it's cool to rub all over people next to them.

    But if you're already going definately check him out cause he's great. All of Suffocation is great.

    Derek Boyer played in Decrepit Birth before he joined Suffocation, Decrepit Birth is very technical, so Boyer must be a technical player.

    But there is no way that he is as good as Richards (god of dm bassplaying), it sucks so bad that Cerrito and Richards are no more in the band because they are the best!

    But hell yes you should go watch the band, I know that they will kick ass.
     
  8. I saw them twice with Chris on bass and it totally kills.

    I saw them about a month ago with the new bassist. He kicks ass and was able to play pretty much everything Chris Richards did and uses his fingers
