Bassist of the Year – 2012 Loudwire Music Awards

Although they can remain low-key, bassists are essential for holding down the rhythm section of a band. Despite a fewer amount of strings, there is something unique about watching or listening to a bassist shred with the same technical expertise as a guitarist. These low-end masters have helped define 2012 through their playing along with their songwriting abilities. Check out the nominees for Bassist of the Year and be sure to vote for your favorite in the poll below: ? Alex Webster, Cannibal Corpse Original Cannibal Corpse member and longtime songwriting force Alex Webster delivered disgusting bass lines within the band’s 12th studio album, ‘Torture.’ Along with his prowess behind a bass, Webster penned tracks such as ‘Scourge of Iron’ and ‘Intestinal Crank’ for the ‘Torture’ album. ? Dan Briggs, Between the Buried and Me If you like your metal bassists to dance around lead parts and create complex polyrhythms, Dan Briggs delivers like few can. His lines can be heard throughout Between the Buried and Me ‘s ‘Parallax II: Future Sequence,’ proving to be one of metal’s most valuable rhythm musicians. ? D.D. Verni, Overkill Along with the thrash-tastic parts showcased by Overkill ‘s D.D. Verni, the bassist is also the primary songwriter for the band. Creating the foundation for every track on Overkill’s must-hear 2012 album, ‘The Electric Age,’ there would be no ‘Come and Get It’ or ‘Electric Rattlesnake’ without the legendary bassist. ? Eric Bass, Shinedown Your name is Eric Bass and you play the bass?! Get right outta town! In fact, the Shinedown bassist has also contributed backing vocals and piano for the band since 2008. Bass also boasts writing credits for tracks such as ‘Unity’ and ‘Enemies’ from Shinedown’s 2012 album, ‘Amaryllis.’ ? Flea, Red Hot Chili Peppers There are few bassists more talented and beloved than Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The band released ‘Look Around’ and ‘Brendan’s Death Song’ as singles this year, and although the band share writing credits for such tracks, there is no denying the massive contribution Flea has brought to the band. ? Frank Bello, Anthrax Anthrax bassist Frank Bello has led a stellar year in 2012. Along with headlining the second stage at this year’s Mayhem Festival, Bello took part in both the Los Angeles and New York City ‘Metal Masters’ clinics. ? Lemmy Kilmister, Motorhead Is it of popular opinion that Lemmy Kilmister is, in fact, God. Looking past his divine birth, Lemmy is one hell of a bassist and frontman. Motorhead were one of the 2012 Mayhem Festival’s marquee acts, and the band rocked it like no others can. ? Nikki Sixx, Motley Crue As one of the most beloved hard rock bassists in history, Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx saw success with the release of the single ‘Sex’ this year. Sixx also helped make Las Vegas history as Motley Crue completed a residency at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, a move that is quickly being adopted by bands such as Guns N’ Roses. ? Steve Harris, Iron Maiden / Solo Legendary Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris embarked on the incredible ‘Maiden England’ tour in 2012, along with releasing his debut solo album, ‘British Lion.’ Harris is showing no signs of slowing down, and his presence has been heavily felt in 2012. ? Wolfgang Van Halen, Tremonti / Van Halen As the son of Eddie Van Halen, there are some monstrous expectations placed above your head when you choose to pursue music. Wolfgang Van Halen has been doing his father proud as a member of Van Halen, but stepping in at the last minute as the touring bassist for Mark Tremonti’s solo project was truly remarkable. Voting for the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards closes on Jan. 15 at 11:59 PM EST. Fans can vote once per hour, so keep coming back to make sure your favorite bassist wins!

Between the Buried and Me Release Six-Minute Album Teaser for ‘The Parallax II’

Metal Blade We may have mentioned this a few times in some recent posts, but Between the Buried and Me ‘s upcoming album ‘The Parallax II: Future Sequence’ is insanely awesome. The record comes out Tuesday, Oct. 9, and BTBAM fans everywhere have been pulling their hair out waiting for it to drop, so to tide you over for the next few days, the band have posted teasers for every single song on ‘The Parallax II.’ Between the Buried and Me have been gifting their fans with an incredible amount of content from the yet-released album, including guitar demonstrations of ‘Telos’ from both Paul Waggoner and Dustie Waring. ‘Telos’ has been out for a few months now and BTBAM have released a music video for ‘Astral Body,’ but there are 10 more tracks which have yet to see the eternal darkness of space, which give ‘The Parallax II’ a total run time of over 72 minutes. Every track that BTBAM have teased in this new six-minute compilation is fairly well represented, but with every little bit Between the Buried and Me have chosen to tease fans with, there are dozens of licks, melodies, harmonies and nuances still left to be discovered on Oct. 9. Keep the lyric, ‘Goodbye to Everything’ in mind, because it’s a theme that is revisited many times throughout the band’s sonic space odyssey. Without further ado, treat your ears to some unreleased material from ‘The Parallax II: Future Sequence,’ and stay anxious for the album’s release.

Between the Buried and Me Guitarists Unveil Close-Up Performances of New Song ‘Telos’

Metal Blade Experimental metallers Between the Buried and Me are approaching the release of their sixth studio album, ‘The Parallax II: Future Sequence.’ The band has already treated fans to the 10-minute epic ‘Telos’ along with the album’s kickstart track ‘Astral Body,’ but now Loudwire is proud to exclusively host never-before-seen, close-up footage of BTBAM guitarists Paul Waggoner and Dustie Waring demonstrating the dual guitar mastery from ‘Telos.’ In our recent interview with Paul Waggoner, the guitarist described ‘Telos’ as “the meat” of the band’s upcoming 72-minute album, and once the record comes out, fans will surely gain an understanding of what Waggoner means. ‘The Parallax II’ is the full-length follow-up to their 2011 EP, ‘The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues,’ which begins the storyline continued within ‘Future Sequence.’ “The two main characters of the story take on a journey through space and time with the unenviable task of having to cure the flaws of humanity by any means necessary,” begins Waggoner. “While the EP served mostly as an introduction to the characters, ‘Future Sequence’ contains the action of the story. The lyrics are written in the stream of consciousness style, which really helps to capture the perspective and emotion of the characters. We really enjoyed the challenge of writing this record, and I think we were all pleasantly surprised with how well the music and lyrics jived with one another.” Between the Buried and Me’s latest masterwork, ‘The Parallax II: Future Sequence,’ will blast fans into the infinity of space on Oct. 9. To hold you over until the album’s release, check out this exclusive footage of Paul Waggoner and Dustie Waring jamming on ‘Telos.’ Paul Waggoner ‘Telos’ Guitar Demonstration Dustie Waring ‘Telos’ Guitar Demonstration
