To clarify, I'm looking for metal bands that basically use the bass guitar as the main instrument.

The only examples I can think of are Talbot and Necromantia, doom/sludge metal and black metal (respectively).

I'm not sure if they're *quite* metal enough, but I really enjoy Death Therapy (ex-Becoming The Archetype's singer's solo project). It's very groovy and industrial-y, but very enjoyable.

You should check out Twin Lords:

https://twinlords.bandcamp.com

No guitars, just a bassist/vocalist and a drummer. Pretty hard to classify, sounds something like progressive powerviolence I guess, with some cool melodies that remind me of mid-period Death. Very unique and an entrancing atmosphere.

Cause For Effect? It's grind/jazz fusion but it's just bass and drums

Herscher are amazing. I've been listening to the s/t album for a month straight, which is also free on bandcamp. Enjoy.

Neoandertals was going to be my main rec, I fucking LOVE that band. Geryon is another good one, guitar-less prog death featuring members of Krallice.
