4Ben Gordon (Parkway Drive)

5Jerod Boyd (Miss May I)
Such an awesome drummer. Listen to Masses of A Dying Breed, Forgive and Forget, Hey Mister, or Apologies Are For The Weak. His drumming speaks for itself.


Jerod boyd is an amazing drummer. He deserves a lot more credit than he gets. By far the best drummer in metalcore today.
His drumming is unbelievably fun to listen to. It really stands out in the music, which is what separates a good drummer from a mediocre one.

6James Sullivan (Avenged Sevenfold)
He did such an awesome job during A7X's metalcore days. Listen to Forgotten Faces, Turn the Other Way, Remenissions, Chapter Four, The Art of Subconscious Illusion, anything on Sounding the Seventh Trumpet or Waking the Fallen. R.I. P Jimmy.
