Video: Watch Troy Sanders of Mastodon Face His Brother in an Orange Amps Bass-Off
Unlike producer and former The Week in Metal host Glenn Fricker (the new host is way less crotchety), I respect the plight of the noble bassist. However, even I will admit that all bassists are not equal, and that sometimes the wheat must be separated from the chaff via mankind’s oldest tradition: a televised bass-off.
So it’s only natural that brothers Troy and Kyle “Battlefield Earth” Sanders, of Mastodon and Hellyeah respectively, should face off in such a manly fashion. As you’ll see below, the two face each other in the Orange Amps Classic, each playing a different Orange set-up and utilizing the best of their skills that they could be bothered to summon at the time. The results of this epic contest may surprise you, but no more than realizing that Troy Sanders’ brother plays bass in Hellyeah.
Watch this incredible contest of bassists below and know which Sanders brother is the greater bassist, or something.
