Today, as a follow up to the release of their first single and music video for “Breakthrough!” (watch here), Anamorph have revealed yet another track, entitled “Overcome”, alongside a brand new bass playthrough video. Bassist Griffin Daniels demonstrates his chops in the playthrough, which can be viewed now via Gear Gods: https://geargods.net/playthrough/anamorph-overcome-exclusive-bass-playthrough/.
Bassist Griffin Daniels says: “When it comes to bass, “Overcome” takes place all over the fretboard. Both my right and left hands put forward a massive amount of work throughout the entire song. Overall this is one of my favorite songs from the album, and there wasn’t another choice that could’ve fit bass better. From the pirate-like beginning, to the technical hectic side of the middle, and finally getting sent off with the big epic phrase at the end, this song is a whirlwind of techniques and musical feeling.”
The video was filmed in Umstead State Park in Raleigh, NC, and behind Griffin is the base of a tree that was once nearly 100 feet long, dating back at least a century. Rather than letting the tree rot after it fell, a park ranger hired artists at Smoky Mountain Art to use chainsaws to create the art seen now. Turned slightly orange by Australian timber oil, the old oak features 20 feet of carvings.
