Spawn of Possession: Erlend Caspersen Plays Through “Bodiless Sleeper”

One of the things I really love about YouTube is that everyone uses it, so it’s easy to find awesome bassists doing their thing. Case in point: Norwegian death metal bassist Erlend Caspersen has an account that he’s filled up with play alongs of the songs he plays.

Here’s his play through for Spawn of Possession’s “Bodiless Sleeper,” where he utilizes some awesome techniques to pull off incredible runs. The tempo also happens to be next to warp speed.
