BARING TEETH – Scott Addison Bass Playthroughs

In case you’re not aware of Baring Teeth, prepare yourself to exit your comfort zone. Consult this chart in case you’re not convinced:



They’re not Bon Jovi, that’s for sure. It’s a very different sound, which might be refreshing if you live in a world where everything is starting to sound the same, and every metal band is slowly fusing into one glob. So, essentially, if you live on planet Earth.

Maybe it’s a symptom of the drug addiction that is metal – always looking for that next craziest thing. Maybe I’m just a jaded old hipster who’s seen it all, and lots of stuff coming out these days sounds nearly identical, but even if something is shitty, if it’s got something approaching a personality, I’d far rather hear that.

Lucky for me, Baring Teeth isn’t shitty, they’re awesome, and they have gobs of personality. A few weeks back we premiered a couple of their guitar playthroughs, and now we’ve got these baller bass playthroughs to match.

Scott’s using an MTD Kingston 6 string bass with an Aguilar OBP-3SK Onboard Bass Preamp. Mesa Boogie 400+ amp with a Mesa Boogie PowerHouse 1000 1×15″ + 4×10″ cab, and an MXR M80 Bass D.I.+ Pedal and an Empress Compressor Pedal.

So enjoy “Dripping Sun” and “Ghost Chorus Among Old Ruins”:

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
