Steve Digiorgio - has played/recorded with Sadus, Death, Autopsy, Tetsament and many others, right now he's playing in Sebastian Bach's band, of all things, well worth your time.

I really like the old bassplayer for Incubus, Dirk Lance. I recommend listening to the album, "S.C.I.E.N.C.E." It isn't metal. It's kind of hard rock with influences from funk, electronic music, alternative, rock, and some metal.

Most of the metal bands I like that have 5-string bass players, you can't even hear the bass most of the time (a general problem with modern metal).

Slightly off topic, but I read on Blabbermouth the other day that Sean Malone (ex-Cynic/OSI) is putting out a theory/instructional bass book through Hal Leonard. The blurb made a point of mentioning that it was very bass-specific but it would be cool to own nonetheless.

There are so many 5-string bass players to list that I like, recently, my favorite 5-string bass player has been Tony Franklin from Tony MacAlpine's Premonition and Evolution, he is awesome.

Dirk Lance is good and so is Steve DiGiorgio and just about every one that was listed so far.

I thought he either already did, or he's been (publically) working on it for some time now...?

Either way, the man kicks ass. This is good news.

i play a 5-string, but I suck. :/
