Metal-Bass mit Linus Klausenitzer
Bass Stage – Darkglass
September 27 @ 14:45
Metal needs innovation: it’s the best timing to make bass more interesting again.
This workshop is not only for bassists but for everyone who wants to arrange interesting bass lines. Linus Klausenitzer will present classic bass sounds, equipment tips and musical potential for the future metal scene.
Known for his significant 6/7 string fretless bass sound Darkglass Elektronics artist Linus Klausenitzer gained international fame. With German’s biggest active Death Metal band OBSCURA he has toured intensely all around the world since 2011. His second band Alkaloid was the first German Death Metal band to ever perform in Egypt.
Linus Klausenitzer is also known for his bass masterclasses (“Wacken Music Camp”, “Popakademie” and many more). As a studio artist he recorded with musicians like Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson, Joe Satriani, Kreator, etc.), Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy, Nevermore), and Marty Friedman (Megadeth).
“I have always been very critical about distortion pedals on bass. They often kill the attack and hide the character of a player. But Darkglass Elektronic worked on solutions for exactly those problems and created pedals that made my concerns completely obsolete. I am proud to represent their innovative products.”- Linus Klausenitzer

At the „Wacken Music Camp“ teenagers have the opportunity to work on their own music being supported by experienced musicians and producers of the scene (musicians from Saxon, Subway To Sally and many others). Known for his significant 6/7 string fretless bass sound Linus Klausenitzer gained international fame. With his Death Metal band Obscura he has toured intensely all around the world.
As a son of two musicians, Linus Klausenitzer was faced with music at a very young age. Before he found his passion in playing the bass when he was 15 years old, he learned to play piano and trumpet. After graduating at a musical secondary school, he studied at the music college in Regensburg and graduated from a study course in popmusic at the conservatory in Hamburg. Having gained experience in bands of several genres, the German bass player found his main place in the genre that he has always loved most: Metal Music.

After having toured through Japan, Australia & New Zealand Obscura brought the Diluvium World tour through 4 different continents in less than one year.
For the very first time, German progressive and technical death metal virtuosos OBSCURA hit Australia and New Zealand:
“It’s a huge privilege that we have fans all over the world. This way we are able to visit those beautiful places that are very inspiring. This opportunities help us not to fall in a touring routine. Thanks to everyone for showing up and making the Diluvium World tour such a success!” – Linus Klausenitzer
“For my playing I need heaviness and a full tone for higher frequencies. Due to the strong magnetism the output of Ernie Ball Cobalt strings is magnificent. Their sound and quality fit my needs perfectly.” – Linus Klausenitzer
Ernie Ball, the world’s leading manufacturer of strings and accessories, has been making high-quality electric guitar and bass strings since 1962. World-class players like Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Slash, Jimmy Page, and Buddy Guy have all played Ernie Ball strings to create their unique sound.
Cobalt strings provide an extended dynamic range, incredible harmonic response, increased low end, and crisp, clear highs.
Cobalt provides a stronger magnetic relationship between pickups and strings than any other alloy previously available. Cobalt Slinky bass guitar strings are also soft and silky to the touch, making string bending a breeze.
