Rigged: ALKALOID – Linus Klausenitzer’s Bass Gear

To call Alkaloid a tech-death supergroup is a vast understatement. With current and former members of Obscura, Spawn of Possession, Aborted, Dark Fortress, Necrophagist, God Dethroned, Blotted Science and Noneuclid, it’s more like a pantheon.

They successfully crowdfunded their new album The Malkuth Grimoire and it is now available directly from them on their website. It always gives me a glimmer of hope to see an independent band have success like that, so kudos to them.

Bassist Linus Klausenitzer is also a member of Obscura, and that alone should tell you something about his skill level. That, coupled with the fact that he often plays a 7 string fretless should give you an idea of what kind of masochistic nutjob we’re talking about.

Here’s Linus’ gear in his own words:

The Alkaloid debut album The Malkuth Grimoire is available on their website now.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. 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.
