24 Dirk Verbeuren - Soilwork
25 Darren Cesca - Deeds of Flesh, Goratory, Arsis
26 Shannon Lucas - The Black Dahlia Murder
27 Ken Bedene - Aborted

Insane speed and power. Technique is flawless and is one of the cleanest players in death metal

28 Donald Tardy - Obituary

He may not be the fastest drummer around, but he always knows how to hold a beat, which makes the riffs even more awesome. Hail Obituary

Obituary are true pioneers in aggressive metal

This guy is fantastic! Keeps beats that are both not overly technical but brutal at the same time! Definitely deserves a higher spot!

29 Krzysztof Raczkowski - Vader
30 Alex Lopez - Suicide Silence
31 Alan Cassidy - The Black Dahlia Murder

Alan Is more faster than Shawn Cameron

32 Aaron Kitcher - Infant Annihilator

...look up YouTube videos of this guy

33 Jean Dolabella - Sepultura
34 John Longstreth - Origin

There is absolutely no way any ass from an 'old-school' death metal band, or any deathcore band should be above Longstreth. There is no one who combines that type of speed with that technicality. He's the most complete dm drummer.

Longstreth should be 36 places higher

Longstreth combines that speed with technicality. He tops Kolias, Hoglan...anyone.
Longstreth is the number ONE death metal drummer...hands down. - Xenosapien
