Dominic “Forest” Lapointe: Beyond Creation’s “Elusive Reverence” Bass Playthrough

Technical Death Metal band Beyond Creation is getting ready to release their sophomore album, Earthborn Evolution, and bassist Dominic “Forest” Lapointe has dished up a bass playthrough of the first track from the album, “Elusive Reverence.”

The left-handed, six-string fretless player tears through the track with deceptive ease. Rather than lay on root notes or double the guitar, Lapointe lays down forward-thinking and melodic bass lines throughout the song. Make sure to check out the 1:31 mark for some flawless tapping action.

Thanks to Joseph Joel for the tip.
