Bass Cover #190: THE GATHERING - King For A Day
covers · 09. June 2024
The Gathering's debut album “Always...” was an important milestone in the history of doom metal and “King For A Day” was probably the first doom metal video I've seen back in the '90s ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbzog5cwNkI ). Still love this song and it was a big surprise for me to see that no one ever did any covers for it. There are no tabs online either, so I made my own. Are they accurate? It's a good question. Let's say they're more accurate than no tabs at all :) It's the...

Bass Cover #189: TIAMAT - Gaia
covers · 01. June 2024
One of the best and most influential Tiamat songs, plain and simple.

Bass Cover #188: UDO LINDENBERG - Niemals dran gezweifelt
covers · 27. May 2024
The last lifebuoy-song for now is “Niemals dran gezweifelt” (“Never doubted it”) by Udo Lindenberg. For non-Germans – Udo Lindenberg is an extremely popular and famous pop/rock singer who started his career back in the very beginning of the '70s. He's like... I don't know... James Brown of Germany if I may say so. I've never been a fan but in 2020 I watched his biopic “Lindenberg! Mach dein Ding” (“Lindenberg! Do Your Thing”) and I loved the moved and also I loved the song...

Bass Cover #187: DIE TOTEN HOSEN - Steh auf, wenn du am Boden bist
covers · 13. May 2024
I remember I had to drive somewhere and I didn't feel so well. I was depressed and uncertain of my future. And suddenly I heard this song on the radio. “Steh auf, wenn du am Boden bist” (“Stand up when you're on the floor”) by Die Toten Hosen (an extremely popular German pop punk band) is just a typical “come on, cheer up, everything's not that bad” song, I know it but for some reason that was exactly what I needed back then. It was like a message from a close friend in the musical...

Bass Cover #186: POISON - Ride The Wind
covers · 23. April 2024
With “Ride The Wind” by Poison I'd like to open a short yet special set of bass covers. Maybe with only 3 or 4 songs. And these will be the songs that... well, basically helped me to survive. I guess everyone here had a moment or two in life when everything seemed to be absolutely hopeless and dark. I cannot call myself a very lucky guy but I was always lucky enough to hear the right song at the right moment. You know, that true magic moment when you're absolutely destroyed and suddenly...

Bass Cover #185: W.A.S.P. - High On The Flames
covers · 13. April 2024
Okay, after two months dedicated to moving across the country I tried to play again and found out I have to practice a lot again just to get back somehow. You know, painting walls, dragging heavy stuff, driving huge vans, etc isn't really what my hands needed all this time. So, I just decided to start with a long-promised cover for “High On The Flames” by W.A.S.P.

Bass Cover #184: KISS - All American Man
covers · 24. February 2024
It's time to cover another “Alive II” studio track and this time it's “All American Man”. Maybe not a hit but still a good Paul's song with a fun bass part. Try it!

Bass Cover #183: FLOWING TEARS - Sistersum
covers · 22. January 2024
At the beginning of this century, Flowing Tears was one of my favorite German goth metal/dark rock bands. They had two things about them – very nice melodies and an outstanding original voice of Stefanie Duchêne (now in Behind Your Fear).

Bass Cover #182: MONO INC. - Boatman
covers · 15. January 2024
A perfect example of making a truly epic and touching song with only three notes! In my opinion, it's a great dark rock track which is actually a collaboration between the band MONO INC and the singer of VNV NATION Ronan Harris.

Bass Cover #181: ACE FREHLEY - Bronx Boy
covers · 08. January 2024
Finally, caught the right mood for “Bronx Boy” by one and only Space Ace. Awesome song, and I think it's worth mentioning that Ace recorded the bass part for it himself. Enjoy!
