Just wondered?

i cant really pick out the bass parts....tho i assume they arent supposed to be some spectacular bass playing...only used to fill the gaps....not saying that rayner isnt good just should be rememberd for his legendary vocals and not for his legendary bass playing ;)

The bass is quite loud on 'Worlds...' - thats where all the bottom end is coming from. The problem most people have with hearing the bass sound is that it's a distorted bass sound, so people often mistake it for the guitars and hear them as one thing. Listen to the bass solo in lords and masters, then you'll know what to listen out for, just because it's not a really clangy cleanish bass sound doesnt mean it isn't there.

On 'Worlds...' the bass mostly plays a supporting role, as you can't have everything louder than everything else (or i might have to turn the guitars down :'( ), and Rayner has to be able to play and sing at once obv.

where is the bass solo in lords and masters i cant find it!!! maybe i am just mistaking it for a guitar :S

playing and singing at the same time is definately really hard i give my props to anybody who does it....and people who play lead and vocals rather than rhythm or bass, are truely amazing....Ihsahn, Alexi Laiho, Mikael Akerfeldt...etc....especially since they play VERY well and vocalize VERY well....

It's right at the end, before the last riff.

EDIT - 3.20 is when it is.

Hey man when i play live i don`t just play bass and sing the parts, I put on a show, that's what people came to see and thats what i want to be known for. Plus, have u ever played a bass, it's alot more physically tiring than guitar, granted the guys you mention are amazing, and i`m not saying that guitarists are weak lazy pussizes, but i put alot of effort and energy in to mithras,especially when playing live. Granted the bass parts are not as "technical" as the guitar parts but it adds a solid back bone that mithras needs so that it doesn`t sound like a random dirge of guitars, the fact that you have never noticed the bass shows how well its supporting roll is seen as it is prity loud relatively! Thanks for the confidence boost!

i for one can vouch for what a commanding force rayner is on stage, sitting right behind him and all. solid bass playing, awesome vocals and great showmanship. completely different, and a hell of a lot better, than your average death metal front man.

ooh yeah i listened to lords and masters and i heard it....yeah it has that distortion on it and i can imagine how horrible the music would sound without it....having no bottom end to it....plus the best part of mithras is turning up the volume bass and treble and laying on my bed (speakers right next to bed on the floor) and letting the blast beats double kick and the vibes from rayners bass vibrate my bed....its especially relaxing after work.... :lol:

now that i know what im listening for in the bass i can mostly hear it throughout worlds but not so much in legions....for the most part it follows along with the guitar but not exactly....
