Clearly more strings = more hardcore.

I wonder if these guys have heard of bass guitars, I hear they get some pretty low notes.

Dropped past A.. that's nuts. Back in the day when i was in a band, we used to tune to drop B# because we wanted "crunchy" music and even with that i needed mega thick strings to stop them flopping everywhere.

8 String Test. Seriously, just buy a bass and let someone else shred.

Yes, how are you liking the newest album? Or really, the past 2 albums. I enjoy the punkier sound, nice change.

Have you heard Fenriz' side project Isengard? I love that shit.

How about Metal without guitars? A friend showed me this band sometime again and I don't know why, I think they are so out there, they are great.
