Bass Cover #166: VOPLI VIDOPLIASSOVA - Марш Сiчових Стрiльцiв
covers · 20. March 2023
Vopli Vidopliassova (in Ukrainian - “Воплi Вiдоплясова” or just “ВВ” - pronounced as “VV”) is a very famous band in Ukraine. I believe you can hardly find a Ukrainian who doesn't know about these guys. Initially, they started from some sort of a weird avaunt-garde punk and finally came to an explosive mix of Ukrainian folk music and song-oriented pop punk. Actually, I guess Vopli was the first band with songs in Ukrainian I've ever heard.

Bass Cover #165: LORD OF THE LOST - Blood & Glitter
covers · 06. March 2023
Lord Of The Lost will present Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest with this song and I thought it was a good chance to play it. Especially since I actually liked “Blood & Glitter” very much. It's a cool song and it has a good chance to win if you ask me. Good luck to these guys!

Bass Cover #164: SARKE - Mausoleum
covers · 27. February 2023
When I discovered this Norwegian band I just couldn't believe I didn't find it earlier because in my eyes it was a f*cking jewel! Probably, it's possible to name Sarke a supergroup since it partly consists of people well-known for their work in other bands, like Thomas “Sarke” Bergil (Khod, Tulus) and Nocturno Culto (Darkthrone, ex-Satyricon). Their style is an interesting mix of thrash, black and sometimes even punk with lots of musical elements entwined together and always great riffs.

Bass Cover #163: KISS - A World Without Heroes
covers · 21. February 2023
It's time for another song from that very special KISS album you either love or hate - “Music From The Elder”. “A World Without Heroes” is one of my favorite tracks from there... though I'm having a hard time choosing my favorite “Elder” songs. The whole album is just fantastic!

Bass Cover #162: AVATAR - Colossus
covers · 13. February 2023
Avatar is a great band I discovered just recently for myself. I really can't tell you their style, there are way too many of them mixed in this Swedish caldron: groove metal, goth metal, industrial... eh, screw that, just check these guys out! Especially live!

Bass Cover #161: HIM - Wicked Game
covers · 23. January 2023
HIM cover version of Chris Isaak's “Wicked Game” was a massive success in the end of the 90's, everybody loved it, goth or not. At the same time, this song is extremely simple to play, just B - A - E over and over again, so it's perfect for rocking. Pay attention, cover bands!

Bass Cover #160: PAUL STANLEY - Wake Up Screaming
covers · 16. January 2023
Even though I'm not a big modern rock fan I really liked about 75% of Paul's “Live To Win” album. I mean all those digital drums and programming can go to hell but the songs themselves were quite good. If you ask me, “Wake Up Screaming” is one of the best songs of the album. It has an interesting chord progression and the bass part in the bridge sounds a little bit like “I Was Made For Lovin' You”.

Bass Cover #159: MARILYN MANSON - Apple Of Sodom
covers · 01. January 2023
In 1996 I doubt there was anyone cooler in rock music than Marilyn Manson. I was obsessed with him and his band back then... “Apple Of Sodom” was never a part of an album because it was recorded especially to be included in the soundtrack to David Lynch's “Lost Highway” movie.

Bass Cover #158: MANOWAR - Army Of Immortals
covers · 26. December 2022
It's time to play some Manowar again! “Army Of Immortals” was recorded for the “Hail To England” album in 1984 and it was one of those perfect Manowar albums with no filler songs at all.

Bass Cover #157: W.A.S.P. - Widowmaker
covers · 19. December 2022
Finally, it's time for one of my favorite W.A.S.P. songs, ironically from an album I don't really like - “The Last Command”. Anyway, the song is amazing and I love the bass intro!
