The ten players (and one cartoon character) featured in Bass Player's April 2010 Golden Age of Metal article represent the beginning of the revolution in metal bass. Here’s a list of other bassists and bands to check out, with an admitted bias toward those you may not yet know about. Even this list is incomplete (no murderous threats due to omission, please, unless it’s a song lyric)—but it’s a place to start. Use the interwebs to go forth and listen.
