201 Hannes Van Dahl (Sabaton, Ex-Evergrey)
202 Scott Rockenfield (Queensryche) V 1 Comment
203 John Macaluso (Ark)
204 Alex Rüdinger (The Faceless)

One of the most creative technical metal drummers. Very powerful hits and he plays ambidextrously! It's just fascinating to watch him playing.

205 John Boecklin (DevilDriver)

Just listen to "I've been sober" and the rest of Pray for Villains album and you know what I mean

207 Johan Koleberg (Therion)
208 Federico Gatti (Ancient Bards)

210 Jörg Michael (Stratovarius)

He's been called the "human metronome". That should tell us something.

211 Guillaume Morero (Darkenhöld, Continuum) V 1 Comment
212 Phil Rudd (AC/DC) Phil Rudd (AC/DC) Phillip Hugh Norman Rudd is a New Zealand-based Australian drummer, best known for his membership in Australian hard rock band AC/DC from 1975 through 1983, and again from 1994 to 2015. Upon the 1977 departure of bass guitarist Mark Evans from AC/DC, Rudd became the only Australian-born member of the more.

This guy's all about playing for the the song & keeping the time and not getting in the way/showing off when it's not necessary.That's why AC/DC's songs BREATHE!

213 Phil Meyer (Waterdown, Schrappmesser, Storm and Stress)
214 Luke Holland

This guy is outstanding, his work with "The Word Alive" is so good. He mixes a lot of styles of music in his drumming. He is young too, with plenty of knowledge already compacted into his head. He is definitely one of the best in metal, hands down. Check him out and you will see what I mean. He is my favorite and hard to dislike.

215 Phil Anselmo Phil Anselmo Philip Hansen "Phil" Anselmo is an American musician who is best known as the former lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Pantera. He currently is the vocalist of heavy metal bands Down and Superjoint Ritual.

This guy is incredible! He can hit and smash anything!

216 Anthony Jude Pero (Twisted Sister, Adrenaline Mob)
217 A.J. Pero (Twisted Sister)
218 Kai (the GazettE)

He is simply amazing. Listen to the drums for 'Ibitsu', 'RED' and 'Shiver', the beats are just perfection. Heavier numbers like 'Derangement' show off his skills with the bass pedals. Just amazing.

219 Alex Grind (Despised Icon)

Because he is the best go listen to their song called mvp

220 Braeden Poirier (A Faint Memory)

This guys has great fills and pretty good double bass, and he's just a kid. Check out their Facebook page, it's pretty goof
