Top Ten Best Thrash Metal Bassistsryanrimmel
The Top Ten
He was the best bassist Metallica had. Just listen to Orion, For Him The Bell Tolls, and his bass solo (that he did in one take), Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth).
Ellefson is better than Burton by a hair. However, if Burton played as long as Ellefson, he might be better.
Better by a long mile than anyone else!
Only david can be the basplayer for dave... technically are at the same level, he is the sound of Megadeth heaviness, and who can keep the pace or beat for riffs in the hands of Mustaine, Poland, Friedmann, Broderick, etc? Only Ellefson!
Listen to his work on Punishment for Decadence and RIP. Amazing. Also, I have a sneaking suspicion that Tom Angelripper from Sodom ain't nothing special, because in every Sodom album he's mixed really low. Especially for a trio band, you'd expect more from the bass.
