News: GearGods Premiere VVON DOGMA I (ex-Unexpect) Bassist's 9 String Frankenstein Playthrough

Share:

Unleashing their debut EP "Communion" this past October, extreme bassist Frederick Filiatrault aka ChaotH of Montreal's VVON DOGMA I has teamed up with GearGods.net for the premiere of his latest playthrough with his 9 string Frankenstein bass for the track "The Mask".

“Most music featuring extended range instruments is all about technique. I wanted to bring the 9 string bass forward, but focus on songwriting more than fretboard theatrics.” says Frederick Filiatrault aka ChaotH.


Inspired by artists as diverse as Radiohead, Meshuggah, Deftones, James Blake, Jean Baudin, Die Antwoord, Clint Mansell, Igorrr, Arvo Part and Hans Zimmer,  VVON DOGMA I was created by lynchpin Frederick Filiatrault aka ChaotH whom was driven to form the group when his previous band Unexpect parted ways. 

Experimenting with elements of prog, djent, funk, and electronic sampling plus featuring his Frankenstein 9 string bass, VVON DOGMA I's debut EP"Communion" is a true trip for lovers of outside the box thinking. Full of bashing low ends to its pummeling and dominating 9 string bass accompanied by the ripping of an 8 string guitar along with some morbid electronic samples for good measure.

“I wanted to feature my freak instrument of a nine-string bass. It is often a Frankenstein of bits and pieces of writing. But I also want people to know it's not about shredding or anything. I wanted to see how I could apply this weird playing style in a musically accessible venue. My art is song writing plus arranging and the 9 string is only one aspect of it. I find it definitely adds an interesting flavor. Hopefully people will see it for what it is as a whole.”
