Dominic “Forest” Lapointe: Teramobil’s “Temporaly Recompressed Pulse” Playthrough

Here’s another jaw-dropping playthrough by Dominic “Forest” Lapointe. The bassist burns it up on Teramobil’s “Temporaly Recompressed Pulse” with lightning fast riffs and creative two-handed tapping. The track comes from the band’s Multispectral Supercontinuum EP, but Lapointe tells us Teramobil is working on a full album.

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...

Evan Brewer: Entheos “Primal” Playthrough

Ever since Evan Brewer joined Entheos at the beginning of the year, I’ve been eager to check the band out. The technical death metal band’s Primal EP dropped this month and proved the wait was worth it. Brewer joins drummer Navene Koperweis, guitarist Frank Costa, and vocalist Chaney Crabb to lay down some brutally heavy beats. Here’s a clip of...

Alex Canion: Voyager’s “The Domination Game” Playthrough

Here’s another one for heavy music fans. Alex Canion sent us this playthrough of “The Domination Game” from his band Voyager’s album, V, and it’s got some serious weight to it. Canion uses slap and fingerstyle to pull a fat, gritty sound out of his bass that fills out the low end of the mix. Besides the finger-busting riffs, it’s...

Mark Michell: Scale The Summit’s “The Dark Horse” Playthrough

Here’s another great metal playthrough by Scale the Summit’s Mark Michell. The bassist tears through “The Dark Horse” from the band’s album The Migration at EMG Pickups TV studios. The song’s creative rhythmic variations tied with Michell’s tone make for a great bass part. Be sure to check out the bass break at the 3:48 mark.

Mike Poggione and Tyler McDaniel: Serocs “And When The Sky Was Opened” Playthrough

Here’s another great metal playthrough featuring bassist Mike Poggione and guitarist Tyler McDaniel of Serocs demonstrating the song “And When The Sky Was Opened.” The clip comes from the Blakhart Guitar booth at the 2015 Winter NAMM show. Poggione is rocking a 7-string bass and some wicked right hand technique to tear through the 7-minute song.

Alberto Rigoni: “Chron” Playthrough

Italian prog bassist Alberto Rigoni sent in this great playthrough of “Chron” from his latest album, Overloaded. Rigoni puts on a nice, fuzzy tone to work through the odd-metered song before cooling things off to take a solo at the 3:12 mark. For those of you looking to play along yourself, Rigoni has supplied a detailed PDF with notation and...

Marco Morandi: Integral’s “Realm Of Atlantis” Playthrough

We featured the SiC Instruments Madness 6-string fretless as a bass of the week in December, and it was a fan favorite. Luthier Simon Calabrese followed up by sending us this video of Integral’s Marco Morandi using the bass to play through their song “Realm of Atlantis.” The song is straight tech metal, but takes a breather at the 4:24...

Alex Webster: Conquering Dystopia’s “Kufra at Dusk” Playthrough

I love bass playthroughs. So when death metal king Alex Webster posted a new video, I dropped everything to watch it. The clip shows Webster tearing through “Kufra at Dusk” from metal supergroup Conquering Dystopia’s debut album last year. From killer tone to monster riffs, this has it all. Buckle up.

Erlend Caspersen: Abhorrent’s “Reward System Malfunction” Playthrough

Prepare yourself: Erlend Caspersen sent us this playthrough of his band Abhorrent’s song “Reward System Malfunction,” and it’s scary good. The song comes from their upcoming album Intransigence, and while the band has a vocalist, this playthrough removes the vocals to focus on the instruments. Caspersen navigates the song with incredible agility moving between lightning fast fingerstyle and slap.

Gallien Krueger has released the latest in their artist series of videos, and this one is a doozie. Aristocrats bassist and all around bass monster Bryan Beller plays through the song “Living the Dream” from the trio’s latest album, Culture Clash. Sometimes blissful and sometimes frantic, the song pays homage to the ups and downs of a touring musician. Beller...
