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!

Bass Cover #156: MOONLIGHT - Meren-Re (Rapsod)
covers · 05. December 2022
Still feeling very much melancholic so let's go on with the European doom/goth/dark stuff. The band Moonlight from Poland was very possibly the first goth/progressive band I've heard back in 2002, I guess. First, it was the video for “Meren-Re (Rapsod)” that made me fall in love with the band's vibe and the singer Maja Konarska whose voice sounded so tender and original. Some would say it was like The Gathering were born in Poland.

Bass Cover #155: PARADISE LOST - Christendom
covers · 28. November 2022
The mood is darker lately, so I'm back to the doom stuff. Here's another one of my favorite songs from the classic album “Icon” by Paradise Lost.

Bass Cover #154: KISS - Firehouse
covers · 21. November 2022
Time to play something from the first KISS album. “Firehouse” is probably my favorite song from that album, especially live. The studio version is too slow for my taste but it's still fun to play.

Bass Cover #153: VINNIE VINCENT INVASION - That Time Of Year
covers · 14. November 2022
If you speak with a KISS fan about KISS-related bands you can't help mentioning Vinnie Vincent. With a funny grimace, usually, because oh well... it's Vinnie. Vinnie Vincent was one of the most brilliant guitar players out there! We're talking Marty-Friedman-brilliant or even better because Vinnie could also sing and write amazing riffs and songs. This man used to have it all in one human body and it went straight to hell just because of oh so many reasons.

Bass Cover #152: RUSLANA - Znayu Ya
covers · 07. November 2022
Znayu Ya (or “Знаю я”, i.e. “I Know”) was one of the most popular songs by Ukrainian folk pop singer Ruslana. You might actually know her since she won the “Eurovision” contest in 2004 with her song “Wild Dances”. Anyways, she was extremely popular in Ukraine back in 2003-2006, and “Znayu Ya” was one of her trademark hits back then.
