Best Rock Drummers « see full list

Awaji Yukihiro


first time I saw his playing, I felt like I watching a God of drummers. he is so awesome, so amazing, and incredible! oh God
He was a drummer of japanese bands ZI:KILL and DIE IN CRIES (KYO of D'ERLANGER's own band). They disbanded in 1998. tetsu had a hard time meeting yukihiro due to yukihiro had no mobile phone at that time. He replaced sakura (because of heroin possession) then become the drummer. He has a unique style of hitting the drums and he is a very fast drummer but he also created lots of drumming in slow songs. He is also a programmer.


He's such an amazing drummer, the drum sections in some of the new songs are absolutely fantastic. He's always so quiet and hidden behind his drums that I'd swear that everyone ignores him but he's an amazing drummer. Anytime I see him play, it's so fantastic and amazing.
he is faster and better than Kai of Gazette, Gazette are the newer bands of japanese visula kei and yukihiro played in numerous bands like ZI:KILL, DIE IN CRIES and of course L'Arc~en~Ciel.


a very skillful drummer. his power, rhythm and melody make his drumming stand out and sounds very different from other most typical drummers.


He puts everything when performing... When Yukihiro plays, you can never say that the song was dull
Good stamina, full talented drummer, unique beat, ear catching, he look so awesome on live concert with fully drum set, just like he hit them all..
Yukihiro's beats are hard to mimic creating one of the factors why l'arc en ciel's music is unique


He can make song. His music is cool! And his voice is very very Rock!
Please listen his performance. For example, "rink it down".
This song is so nice.
yukihiro is the best, simply, because he can always surprise you with his passion when he is playing

He is the best drummer ever and he always play with his plain face and I always scream when I see him smile because he rarely smile on the stage... LOVE YOU YUKIHIRO-SAN ^^ L'Arc~en~Ciel must proud to have you
