Hi guys, I've recently started listening to a lot of heavier metal and thrash including Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, along with newer stuff like Killswitch Engage, Trivium, FFDP and Skeleton Witch etc. Although I like the growly pick tone that a lot of the bass players have in these bands I was wondering if you could recommend any particular players who really stand out and drive the band. The reason I have asked about the "Steve Harris of Thrash Metal" is that I am interested in bass players who are really at the heart of the band and define the whole sound by the way their bass comes through. I've already started listening to some Alex Webster clips but who else would you suggest I check out? PS: Although I love the music I'm too old to get the squabbles about what is metal core/post-metal core/screamo/djent/black metal/death metal etc. I might not be able to define thrash but I know it when I hear it!
