Best Death Metal Drummers


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Martin Marthus Škaroupka - Cradle of Filth

As for me, he's inimitable drummer. He has high level of technical and speed.

What a razor sharp player dead on nice blasts in COF but speed and precision & taste with Inner FeAr

22 Marco Pitruzzella - Braindrill
23 Darren Cesca - Deeds of Flesh, Goratory, Arsis
24 Krzysztof Raczkowski - Vader
25 Ken Bedene - Aborted

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

Technical monster.

26 Trey Williams - Braindrill
27 Dirk Verbeuren - Soilwork
28 Shannon Lucas - The Black Dahlia Murder Shannon Lucas - The Black Dahlia Murder
29 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!

30 Alan Cassidy - The Black Dahlia Murder Alan Cassidy - The Black Dahlia Murder

Alan Is more faster than Shawn Cameron

Alan did an amazing job following Shannon :) TBDM for life

31 Alex Lopez - Suicide Silence
32 Aaron Kitcher - Infant Annihilator

...look up YouTube videos of this guy

33 Mauro Mercurio
34 Jean Dolabella - Sepultura
35 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

36 Chason Westmoreland - Abigail Williams, Hate Eternal, Oceano
37 Jaska Raatikainen Jaska Raatikainen
38 Kevin Talley - Dååth
39 Ole Öhman - Dissection
40 Sean Reinert Sean Reinert
