Winter Of Sam
Sam Bean has played bass in a lot of spooky bands—the Antichrist Imperium, the Senseless, the Berzerker, and Mithras among them—but Werewolves may be his most demanding yet, he tells us

My first bass was made out of balsa wood and didn’t even have a brand. I bought it for spare pocket money and played the absolute hell out of it. I stored it in the Berzerker’s basement when I moved from Australia to England, and it was destroyed in a flood along with the piece‘of‘crap amp I played it through.

I started playing bass near the end of high school. I idolized all the evil metal bassist‘vocalists, people like Glen Benton from Deicide or Jan Chris de Koeijer from Gorefest... All the badass singers seemed to come with a bass attached to them. I was also teaching myself drums and guitar at the same time, so I was having a crack at everything.
