The Top TenXW

1Andols Herrick (Chimaira)

2 words.. Pure-talent.. But also where are drummers like Gene holgan, Martin Lopez, Igor Cavalera, Paul Mazurkiewicz, Mario Duplantier (he should be the 1st spot in lesser known metal drummers) can, t believe I didn't find him in this list.. But this is a prove that MetalFoREver1228 doesn't know many good drummers and doesn't know many good bands... But he will be one of the most successful users on this site soon.. - nooreldeen
