Top Ten Best Progressive Metal Drummers

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Matt Garstka (Animals as Leaders)

This dude is seriously a beast. Very underrated cannot even believe he's not on this list... Rhythm Drummer named him #7 last year. He's the current drummer for Animals As Leaders.

22Ryan Van Poederooyen (The Devin Townsend Project)
23Marco Minnemann
24Dan Carle

After the burial has some of the most technically demanding music in prog metal today, and Dan carle absolutely nails every single solitary part to the point just short of perfection. Dan is a robot and gives no care.

25Ryan Seaman (Falling In Reverse)

He is very under rated because Ronnie and Jackie take up all of the attention not being mean here Ronnie and Jacky are my idols but Ryan should not be over looked Ronnie and Jackie well deserve the attention they get but Ryan is being over looked to much look up Ryan seaman drum solo and come back and vote

26Anup Sastry (Skyharbor, Jeff Loomis, Intervals)

Take a look at any of his solo work. One of the most creative, musically acute drummers of our generation. Leagues above the competition in terms of skill and versatility while also having incredible compositional skills. Check out his EPs or his YouTube channel to see what I'm talking about. A truely masterful drummer,

27Daniel Liljekvist
28Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson)William Scott "Bill" Bruford is an English retired drummer, percussionist, composer, producer, and record label owner.

You guys realize that this is a list about "progressive" drummers, right? How about actually including a REAL progressive drummer..
