The dark, soaring bass and cello notes work together in a gorgeous, epic way to bring forth some of the heaviest and most beautiful proggy Philadelphia metal these ears have ever heard, as well as some of the most impressive bass riffing.
“I read heavily from the books of Burton and Butler when it comes to my bass playing,” says Bob Stokes of the band. I love playing it like a guitar. I love washed out tremolo picked leads and holding down big, colossal bass chords. Especially a low B chord doubled up with a second bass, dark fuzzy distortion and out of 50-year-old tube amp. That’s the sound we were trying to capture.”
