Best Hard Rock-Metal Drummers


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Yogi Watts - Demon Hunter

Number 12 for metal in my opinion

42Scott Travis - Judas PriestMark Scott Travis is a Grammy Award winning American rock musician, best known as the drummer for the English heavy metal band Judas Priest and the American heavy metal band Racer X.
43Hellhammer - Dimmu Borgir
44Arejay Hale - Halestorm

Sometimes I hear the words "drum solo" at concerts and I groan, wishing it was over. I mean, the drummers who do those solos are good, but they are boring to watch. So when I went to see Halestorm last year and I heard there was going to be a drum solo, my initial thoughts weren't positive. Well, I would like to apologize to Arejay Hale and all of Halestorm if they ever see this. His drum solo was so awesome it blew my mind.

Two words: Criminally Underrated. Watch their "Love Bites" video amongst the live performances and tell me this cat ain't top 20, at least!
