This guy got the best bass lines for a death metal band! - nooreldeen

No one else comes close to this guy in death metal bass.

I was excpecting for him to be number 1 he's the best death metal bassist OF ALL TIME his bass solo to hammer smashed face looked super complicated ecpecially since I don't play bass but I'm considering learning

2 Steve DiGiorgio (Death) Steve DiGiorgio (Death)

He even played fretless bass on 'Individual Thought Patterns' by Death and 'Defiant Imagination' by Quo Vadis. Amazing. - Metal_Treasure

Listen to the bass riff during the interlude to "The Philosopher". Jesus

Steve counts as death metal. He's played with Death and Sadus.

Anyone picking Alex Webster over this guy is retarded... Death, Sadus, Quo Vadis, etc. enough said
