TESTAMENT bassist STEVE DiGiorgio has just posted on his Youtube Channel a bass playthrough video for DEATH‘s “Zero Tolerance,” which can be seen below.
Steve on the playthrough video: “I’m looking like a forest… Traipsing thru the forest… Found a 5-string fretless ESP Forest… Played that bass to a DEATH song in the forest… Bass amp — EBS Reidmar 750 & Neoline 8×10 speaker cab. This playthrough is the ‘bass only’ version from the Death To All video up on Gene‘s channel.”
“I’m playing the bass line I recorded on the preproduction version that you can hear on the Symbolic reissue that has the bonus tracks. In 1994 I went to Florida with a dislocated finger to work with Chuck & Gene on the new songs that would become the Symbolic album. I didn’t make the final studio session because of the timing of the birth of my daughter. But as things would happen…I returned again, and again.
