Best Groove Metal Drummers


The Top TenXW

1Chris Adler (Lamb of God)Christopher James Adler is an American drummer, best known as a member of the groove metal band Lamb of God.

Are you kidding me -_-? Chris adler should be at the top.. Nobody can play like him he is a BEAST - nooreldeen

I'm not a fanboy but the beats of his drum kit are awesome.

Chris adler plays double bass very well!

2Vinnie Paul (Pantera)Vincent Paul Abbott, also known as "Vinnie Paul", is an American professional drummer and producer who is best known for being a former member, and co-founder, of the heavy metal band Pantera.

The best in my humble opinion. He fits into the Pantera equation so perfectly you sometimes forget he's there, but he is, permeating and accenting the sound masterfully.

3Jeremy Spencer (Five Finger Death Punch)

Jeremy is by far the best drummer of today. He' such an energetic player and his footwork is amazing!

Jeremy lays down some amazing grooves. Awesome tempos and skill. - MetalFoREVer1228

4Andols Herrick (Chimaira)

Nothing more to say, best one.

5Mario Duplantier (Gojira)Mario Duplantier is a French musician and artist best known as the drummer of technical death metal band Gojira.

I love Vinnie Paul and Chris Adler, but Mario is just better!

6Dave McClain (Machine Head)
7Igor Cavalera (Sepultura, Cavalera Conspiracy)Igor Graziano Cavalera is a Brazilian musician. He is best known as the former drummer for Brazilian heavy metal band Sepultura, which he co-founded with his brother Max in 1984. Max left the band in 1996, and Cavalera himself would depart ten years later, making him the last original member of Sepultura more.

He's good, this is the best drummer in the world!

8John Boecklin (DevilDriver)
9Zyon Cavalera (Soulfly)

He plays very similar to his uncle Igor. Gotta respect this kid. - MetalFoREVer1228
