Beyond Creation Part Ways With Bassist, But Leave Behind Sick Playthrough Clip

How about some tech-death? It’s not often that we post bass playthroughs, and it’s far less often that we get to post footage of a fretless bass player. Longtime Beyond Creation four (six)-stringer Dominic  “Forest” Lapointe provides both today, with his playthrough for the song “Earthborn Evolution” off the band’s latest Season of Mist release of the same title. Unfortunately, this is a bit of a swansong for Lapointe, who has just left the band, according to an announcement made on their Facebook page last night:

Unfortunately, we have to announce that Dominic ‘’Forest’’ Lapointe is no longer part of Beyond Creation for personal reasons. We would like to thank him for his great work and dedication to the band for the past four years. We had a lot of fun sharing the stage with him and recording two solid records! Dominic stays our friend and we keep a good relationship with him. We wish him the best of luck for all his bands and future projects.

-Simon, Kevin, Philippe

Huge bummer! Well, we’ll always have the recordings. Looking forward to whatever Lapointe gets up to next.
