Heaven Shall Burn fans know and appreciate the massive doublebass grounding that Christian Bass gives to the music. Since 2013 he has been a member of the German Melodic Death giants, after having filled in several times as substitute drummer as early as 2006.
Born in 1977, he thought himself to play. Luckily his older brother already had a drumkit set up in the basement when little Christian discovered his love for the instrument. 1992, at the age of 15, he played his first live show, at 18 he signed a deal with label Nuclear Blast, resulting in several album releases by his band Night In Gales.
But one group wasn‘t enough for the dedicated musician, so he also became a member of Deadsoil, Der Weg Einer Freiheit (until 2011), White Eyes and Bloodred Bacteria. Several other outfits, among them Dew-Scented, Deadlock and Born From Pain, chose his skills when they needed a substitute drummer for live shows and recordings.
Since 1994, Christian has played nearly 500 gigs and worked in the studio for a diverse array of groups and projects. Trained as a graphic designer, he is currently working as a teacher for media technics and the German language.
Christian Bass is always interested in new musical projects, studiowork etc.
