Last time we saw a Nick Schendzielos bass video he was tearing up his Warwick dressed like a clown. Now the Cephalic Carnage and Job for a Cowboy bassist is back in a new shred-tastic video dressed like a Terminator-meets-Osama-Bin-Laden cyborg he's dubbed "Ol' Dirty Wizard," with a jam aptly named "Funking Dead Bass Shenanigans!"
Is there anything I can say that really needs to be said about Schendzielos' playing? The guy knows his way around five strings quite well and his right hand can keep up perfectly. It's crazy to watch! Schendzielos had to say about the video via the information section on the video:
"Happy Halloween! er uh, Thanksgiving! Check out the Ol' Dirty Wizard-1000's Cybernetic-Bassist shenanigans with some of your favorite archetypal themed scoring. Technically it's not the t-1000 model, it's the t-800, but you know it's for the best when providing weapons of war for groups who's radicalism may eventually bite you in the ass. Keep em one generation behind ya know?! Lot's of fun "easter eggs" in this thing. See if you can name them off in the comments yeah??"
As far as the easter egg appearances, I caught Prince, Rick James, David Lee Roth, Fred Durst, and Michael Jackson. There was one around the 2:46 mark that I couldn't identify, so leave a comment if you've got that one down! I guess the next time we'll be hearing Schendzielos play is on the new Job for a Cowboy record in 2014!
