Bass with the most individual strings I've ever seen
 
The longest octave range bass I've ever see I dunno if any of you guys have ever heard Element of Surprise, but this guy can damn play. I just thought some of you might find that bass interesting.

Damnit, Walpurgis, if you just want to delete this post then it's fine. I didn't see your reply in the other post that said "Put all check this out bass stuff here"...so yeah, I fucked up, sorry.

Cheers,

If you didn't see it, then how did you know about it? :)

Nah, it's alright, I'm feeling lazy, so it can stay here. It doesn't bother me, it's just that there were times when there were like 8 threads with 2 replies in them about different basses. I was just trying to keep things organized.

Heh, that thing looks like it'd be fun to play.

Def 2002-10-15 04:52

yeah, fun to play but it also looks heavy as fuck :D haha

how many strings are on that motherfucker? twelve or something?

I don't know that band actually.

hey darkest hour dude, are you into sXe?

Tattered 2002-10-15 12:09

theres that same picture in the unique and interesting thread, or some other thread in the bass forum,but yeah i know that is one huge thing, must be hard to put your hand around it,

xDarkestHourx 2002-10-15 19:44

there are 9 on that one, I believe. and to answer your other question, yeah I'm an sXe guy. But the non-militant kind who believes in people's choice to choose what they put into their bodies and who can't stand Hate-edges or Jock Straightedges who wear their sport endorsed Nike shoes, sweatbands, have fat bald heads and try to dominate pits. I'm more into the Eighteen Visions, DS-13, American Nightmare side of sXe than the other stuff.

Def 2002-10-16 13:13

Ah, cool, I'm from the netherlands, the straight edge scene is verry much alive here and in germany,
Yesterday we had a gig in 'Leeuwarden' and there where lots of cool straight edge guys, I'm not a straight edger myself but they are really kind people to talk to.

Do you know Heaven Shall Burn, Caliban, Converge, xThrowdownx, xDiscipleA.D.x etc?
I love those bands!!

xDarkestHourx 2002-10-17 11:29

I've heard all of them but Caliban (which I have heard of, just not heard the music) and they're all bad as shit. "Jane Doe" from Converge is easily one of the greatest CDs I've ever heard. There's a band over in the UK that's pretty good, xCANAANx. Also you mentioned Throwdown, those bastards are gettin pretty damn big here. Third to last show I was at there were like 6 different Throwdown shirts in the room, it was great. Glassjaw and Carry On are great, too. It's good to see someone else into hardcore here besides me, heh.

Cheers,

Def 2002-10-17 14:03

Yeah man that's pretty cool, I think we're about the only ones here, well, your the only sXe guy here, that's for sure.

Try Caliban, they rule, if you can, try Shockwave and Caliban cd's, Caliban was my greatest discovery ever :)
German band, sXe and seen them twice, they absolutely kick ass, it's my ALL-time favorite band.

xCanaanx, I don't know them.. well, probably you also know xMaroonx and all those bands, maroon is pretty nice, actually.

do you also play bass? it's nice to get in contact with younger bands, maybe we can do a tour sometime man :)

xDarkestHourx 2002-10-18 16:38

heh, yeah I do play bass. All the hardcore stuff I have written is kind of on hiatus right now because I can't find a sufficient drummer to play with the stuff I've got down. The only band I'm in right now is "Dark Minions Of The Underworld", a joke-heavy metal band with songs like "Baby In A Bucket", "The Coffinmaker", and "I've got an itch on my wrist only a razor can scratch"...stuff we find hilarious but most others probably don't, heh. If you want a good Idea of all the fucked up stuff I've done 3 of the songs I've done by myself or with friends are on there. Sounds For The Deaf . There's a Motown classic we butchered, a song about my friend's brother's chronic masterbation problem, and a real fucked up one we did with a drum machine, an FX board to run our guitar and bass through, with my cat on vocals. Plus I live in the USA so it might be just a weee bit hard to get a tour in Europe, heh.

mrweijia 2002-10-18 18:06

wow

Def 2002-10-19 10:46

hey cool man, I'll download it when I'm at school (fast connection)
ah well, I bet we can get a tour going :P

just get really big there, or we'll get big and tour america?
shame about the drummer, but it's always a problem to get the right people together, I'm just one lucky bastard.

Rattlehead 2003-02-21 14:47

I'm probably an ignorant idot for asking this but I'm very confused.
What is strait edge? Is it hardcore? And does sXe stand for strait edge? I don't know any of the bands mentionned in this thread and this is strange because I usually know about half of the bands mentionned in conversations.

xDarkestHourx 2003-02-24 21:45

Straghtedge is, in it's loosest terms, defined as being someone who doesn't smoke, drink, do drugs, or have promiscuous sex. I take it a bit further and try to abstain from OTC medicine when I can. sXe started out as a hardcore punk thing in the 80's via Minor Threat but there are some straightedge guys like me who're more into grind/extreme metal. To be honest, a lot of sXe (stands for straightedge) music kinda blows because it gets too preachy/tuff-guy. Also, if you've ever seen a kid at a show with X's on his hands, that's kind of our mark. Kind of like corpse painting is to black metal kids, except we don't look like stupid fucks. Hope that covered everything for you.

Cheers,

I'm not going to get rid of the above posts, but try to sway it back towards the topic's intent guys.

Thanks.

I guess this makes me a strait edge person (except I listen to all kinds of music). What is OTC medicine?

walpurgis 2003-02-25 13:20

OTC = "Over-the-Counter"

Non-prescription medicines and pills.
