The Top TenXW
The best drum intro, you could just go through each and every song in this list except honor thy father, no other comes close to this song truly a great song with a great drum intro - amitcornelius1
Scott Travis the king of drumming with Dave Lombardo alongside him painkiller really shows off his true talent on the drums. Priest forever
Little words to Describe this drum intro.. :-
Faster than a lazer bullet
Louder than an atom bomb
Chromium plated boiling metal
Brighter than a thousand suns - nooreldeen
Its like the drummer is an octopus - SweetChaos
The confusing "off beat" effect once you first hear it is pretty cool. It�'s also as powerful as the song requires.
I love judas priest but this is way better
Painkiller intro is actually pretty simple
Alex is almost as awesome as Eddie, sometimes.
Alex Van Halen shreds in drums! - rock2metal
The late, great Cozy Powell, this guy is truly a drum legend and this needs to be in the top 10. Not only is the intro great; it has Deep Purple's Ritchie Blackmore on guitar and Ronnie James Dio. These guys together was one of heavy metals greatest yet underrated moments.
Idiots and ignorants rule, almost all of you dumb kids never heard this song and the amazing intro by mr cozy powell one of the best drummers of all time
It's awesome - it's double bass. Can you imagine, Ian Paice played double bass in 1971! Go beat Deep Purple...
Lars Ulrich of Metallica attended one of the Deep Purple shows in Copenhagen, Denmark (he was 9-10) and was mesmerized by this double bass on Fireball (he saw that for the first time). - Metal_Treasure
Ian Paice is a tour de force behind the kit. With a little help from an air handler being switched on, he takes off like a jet engine and never lets up. This is clearly the best drum intro ever!V1 Comment
Danny Carey is one of the best drummers when it comes to rhythms, and the intro to Ticks & Leeches is one of the highlights of his skill. - MKBeast
50 seconds of tight flawless drumming! Insane double bass - click on the sample button bellow to hear a section of this intro.
This is probably the longest drum intro ever and for me it's the best but I don't mind Painkiller at #1 (it's classic) and this at #2.
A merciless and very mean intro by Mike Mangini.
Metallica made a cover, but I think the original drumming is better - rock2metal
The reason I started drumming in the first place, great double bass intro, with smooth tom usage.
An awesome opening to an even greater album "Blood Mountain" ;) Brann is amazing
One of the craziest intros - long and fast. No wonder - Anvil were one of the pioneers of speed and thrash metal. Should be in the top 10. - Metal_Treasure
Sounds like a short drum solo - it's awesome. Mike Mangini - great job! - Metal_Treasure
Now I understand most of the hatred towards this band but I feel like Mat Nicholls' drumming is underappreciated and if you don't believe me, listen to the intro to this song and feel the emotion
