For me, part of the draw of tech death has always been the spectacle. Hearing the music is one thing, but actually seeing it performed brings the experience to a whole new level. That visual element casts the music in a whole new light: being able to actually see the amount of skill and effort the performance takes makes it that much easier to appreciate. Plus, it looks cool when people go fast.

With that, I’d like to present you a bass playthrough of Seismic’s “Combordité interne,” performed by Toilet friend/crazy bass guy Dave Tremblay. Longtime readers will be familiar with his work by way of vod and Melopœia (among several others), and though he shares composition duties with guitarist Alexandre Corriveau, Seismic is a bit more traditional than the aforementioned projects. This is by no means a complaint, however; “Combordité interne” is a beast of a track. It dispenses with the noodling so characteristic of the genre and goes straight for the throat with low, beefy riffs and tap-heavy bass. Despite the flashiness of the performance, it doesn’t feel excessive or unnecessary, and having the bass move independently of the guitars adds another layer of depth and complexity.

Head on over to Seismic’s Bandcamp and acquire the track for yourself, and keep up with them on Facebook.

            Whoa, so I just went back and checked your post history like a creeper and realized that the first “MATT DAMON” comment you ever made was to me on this article:

            http://www.toiletovhell.com/washington-think-tank-with-w-is-it-worth-it/

            Note: It’s crazy to see how many different people commented on the ToH back in the early days. Lots of crossover with the Metalsucks crowd in those first few weeks/months. Interesting shit. The story that one dude told about touring and having his buddy OD mid-tour was pretty legit.

            Some of the posts lately have less than 5-10 comments, except for that QR/Mastodon post which has like a bazillion comments and page views.

          • Howard Dean

            Yeah, I’ve seen that. Nowadays it really needs to be a delicate or hot button topic to bring the commenters out in droves.

          • my guess is that much of the sidebar conversation moved to the Digital Replacement of Real Life.

          • Howard Dean

            That sux. Digital Replacement of Real Life is super dumb and un-rad.

          • wrong!! how else would we know what a second cousin over in Georgia thinks about her recent visit to Applebee’s (and how her experience was ruined because the were out of her favorite seasoned fries)?

          • Howard Dean

            “I mean, I go to Applebee’s because I want to have a good meal. Get dressed up. Drink a tall boy or two. Get a lil’ wild when Toby Keith comes on the jukebox and flirt with some of the boys from the mill. But then they blindside you by discontinuing the Southwestern Baked Potato Ranch steak fries. I tell you what, AppleBUMS, Uncle Sam’s got YOUR name at the top of his list!!!!1”

    I think it’s that bottom end rumble I dig most about this. Need more crunchy tech death.

    My hands are tired from just watching that. Looking forward to more material from these guys.

  • Holy shit this is insane. I need more.
