Suffocation Bassist Derek Boyer Talks ‘Pinnacle of Bedlam,’ Unique Playing Technique + More
As one of the most brutal, technical and unique bassists in metal, Derek Boyer has played for legendary death metal bands Dying Fetus, Decrepit Birth and, of course, Suffocation. With his bizarre style of twisted bass lines and playing his instrument vertically while resting the body of his bass on the floor, Boyer is also one of metal's most entertaining live performers.
