Bass Player - September 2013 - Progressive Metal Bass
September 2013 - The State of Progressive Metal Bass
In an exclusive roundtable chat with three of the baddest bassists on the progressive metal circuit -- Liam Wilson of the Dillinger Escape Plan, Evan Brewer of The Faceless, and Adam "Nolly" Getgood of Periphery -- Bass Player takes the temperature of one of the hottest scenes in terms of electric bass guitar. Whether you're a shred-till-you're-dead or a meat-and-potatoes kind of player, there's loads to be learned from these three giants of the genre.

From David Bowie to Vintage Trouble, Queens of the Stone Age to Fall Out Boy, semi-hollows to stompboxes, we've got all basses covered in this issue. Dig in!
