Great bassist! Great music!

82 Chris Kael (Five Finger Death Punch)

Great bassist, awesome at fingerpicking. A much better player than Matt, and he's an awesome guy too. His beard is sick.

83 Mike D'Antonio (Killswitch Engage)

Not really that innovative or great on some of their songs, but he does his job well, and gives a backbone to the rest of the band.

An amazing bassist from NEW DElhi, India. Third Eye Destruction as a band is very innovative. Theit riffs are technical + groovy + a pinch of psy. I love their music.

89 Glenn Five (Anvil)

G5 played some incredible bass guitar on Anvil's best albums. Along with Rob Reiner, Glenn Five formed the most powerful rhythm section ever. Songs like "Ball Of Fire", "Bombs Away", and "New Orleans Voodoo" it's hard to ignore this man and his bass guitar. Great bass lines. Great heavy metal!
