The Top Ten

1 Clandestine Stars

2018.

Bassist - Linus Klausenitzer
This song is so tidy that I didn't expect to hear a bass solo. But it was incredible to hear a

bass solo right before the guitar solo. The transition is awesome. - Metal_Treasure

2 Anticosmic Overload

2009.
Bassist - Jeroen Paul Thesseling
He plays a 6-string fretless bass (there's video on YT where you can see him play).
According to many (mostly metal bassists), this is the song that made fretless bass in metal cool again, after a long period of oblivion. - Metal_Treasure

3 Akroasis

2016.
Bassist - Linus Klausenitzer (there's a video on YT where you can see him play it).
Play the sample - the bass is there. - Metal_Treasure

4 Septuagint

2011.
Bassist - Jeroen Paul Thesseling.
One of the most beautiful Obscura songs, partly thanks to the fretless bass. - Metal_Treasure

5 Orbital Elements

2009.
Bassist - Jeroen Paul Thesseling
This is a soft instrumental and it's easy to hear the fretless bass. Play the song sample to hear part of it. Fretless bass sound is very beautiful. - Metal_Treasure

6 Ten Sepiroth

2016.
Bassist - Linus Klausenitzer

Play the sample to hear part of the bass line.

10 Aevum

2011.
Bassist - Jeroen Paul Thesseling
It's not easy to play fretless bass at 260 BPM... (BPM - beats per minute). It's not easy even on standard, fretted one. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

Bassist - Linus Klausenitzer
Play the sample and be convinced (bass is audible) - Metal_Treasure
