Eyvind Axelsen

Diskord bassist on death metal upright bass, and embracing the unfamiliar

Exclusive video interview with FBPO’s Jon Liebman
Date February 21, 2022

Diskord is a nontraditional metal trio, so it’s fitting that Eyvind Axelsen would be a nontraditional bassist. You might describe his group as a Norwegian death metal band with hints of prog, jazz, and experimental drifting thrown into the sonic maelstrom. Axelsen certainly isn’t afraid to do his own thing, taking an adventurous approach to metal bass that at times has him conjuring up low notes on electric upright. His innovative playing can be heard on several of the band’s albums, including their most recent, Degenerations, released in the summer of 2021.
