Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures

The Dark Sentencer

This one showcases some very nice work by Zach Cooper in the choruses, where he lets loose and shows off some tasty fills. I don't think he repeats himself once with those fills, so it was a bit of a challenge to learn each one note for note, but I did my best and I think I'm pretty close.


Track 4 from "Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures". This is my favorite song off this new record, and there's a lot of amazing tunes to choose from! I'm not sure that I got all the fills down 100%, but either way Josh and Zach are doing some amazing things together on this song.

Queen Of The Dark

The 6th track of the 'Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures' album. This one has a great groove and feel throughout, nice and slow but still driving forward.

Love Protocol

Love Protocol is the 8th track of the 'Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures' album. I love how catchy this tune is, it always gets stuck in my head :)

Zach has a very cool distorted sound for this one, and he does a lot of little variations to the bass line and fills. 

The Pavilion

Fantastic song with a super catchy chorus and a great 6/8 groove from Josh Eppard. The bass line is amazing, lots of little fills that are mostly all different, showcasing Zach Cooper's creativity and skills. It was a ton of fun learning this one.

The Gutter

What a great track this is!

Listen carefully and pay attention to how many sections this song has... There's quite a few and a lot of them only come around once, which is pretty awesome.

As usual, Zach is solid, and hardly ever repeats himself. I love that you can tell there is no copying and pasting of Zach's bass parts in the studio.

Lucky Stars

I think Zach might be playing an upright bass here, so to get as close as I could to that sound on an electric, I used my new Fender Mustang which has flat-wound strings set up.
