Hello, Im down here in the deep south, and been palying metal just about all my life. Been playing bass for over 30yrs. I have always played in a 3 piece band that started playing covers and progressed to orginals. In fact, our song SHIP OF DREAMS placed #7 in the billboard top 10 orginal unsigned bands back in 1987. I have always used a 4001/3 to play the bass parts and also live. No other bass will carry a 3 pc band like a ric. Heck I even have played Kiss songs on my ric, It all sounded great. For metal, there is only one bass and that is a ric.:-)

Ah, the black metal my band plays, while influenced a bit by Mayhem, is much more in the vein of say, Emperor, Immortal, Tvangeste and Naglfar. We do mainly original stuff, though we are thinking about covering an Emperor song.

Don't worry, most people even my age (19) haven't heard of them. They're "black metal" bands, and black metal is not an especially well known genre. At least, it's not in the US.
