Dominic “Forest” Lapointe: Teramobil’s “Molecular Spectrometry” Playthrough

Dominic “Forest” Lapointe‘s playing never ceases to amaze me. Today’s featured video is the bassist’s latest face-melting playthrough for the song “Molecular Spectrometry” from his instrumental technical metal band Teramobil.

Not one to simply play roots, Lapointe’s lines are a great example of a bass player taking the lead while still supporting the song. He rips through the track with blazing two-handed tapping, crunchy chordal strumming, and a dash of slap that will blow your hair back.
