Ilja John Lappin: Bass Playthrough of The Hirsch Effekt’s “Bezoar”

I’ll admit I hadn’t heard of The Hirsch Effekt before watching this, but this video has put bassist Ilja John Lappin on my radar. His playthrough of “Bezoar” has an intensity that will put you on the edge of your seat.

The song falls somewhere between technical death metal and prog-rock with a Latin-American-tinged interlude. Its intro is sure to get your attention as Lappin’s right hand becomes a blur during the flurry of notes.
