Hashmoder's "STABBING BASSLINE" Stamp Of AprovalOver The Shoulder is one incredible track (by Ministry) that was way ahead of its time.  Rolling, pounding synth bassline — sequenced with 16TH-notes across the 4/4 bar/measure timescale.  Industrial clinging & clanging sounds.  It was this track which first exposed me to industrial music after watching the music video.  I was like What the ‘F’ …and… What kind of music is that?

To me, I loved those industrial hard-edged sounds over a dance groove.  I was glad to be introduced to the industrial genre not only because it was new and harder core with metal/guitar elements but also because it had electronic drum machines, synthesizers, stuttering voice/word samples, machine grinds, and overly-precessed vocals.

Therefore… Over The Shoulder gets my Stabbing Basslines stamp of approval.

A new music sub-category was added to this blog today…
Stabbing Basslines is now listed in the Categories navigation-menu on the right-sidebar.  All tracks in this category will have STABBING BASSLINE stamp-of-approval image next to their titles.  I just LOVE any kind of track that has stabbing and rolling bassline(s) coming from synthesizers and any other kind of bass instrument. Such basslines DRIVE the music tracks along their spinal-chords, punching and grooving their way through the sound-wave paths of polyrhythms.  So it is in this section where carefully-selected tracks with stabbing-basslines will be categorized under.
