“When I thought about recording another playthrough, I decided for the title track of our new album Akroasis.
As it is a very atmospheric song, the bass lines are probably the easiest one to play on the whole album.
This way I hope to motivate people to try playing the song themselves and to pay more attention to phrasing on bass.
In this video I play my fretless Ibanez BTB7 that people ask me about very often. I recorded 90% of the album with this bass.” – Linus Klausenitzer
