Top Ten Best Metal Drummers
The Contenders: Page 8
Human machine with heart and control, I watched his playing in 2004 with Skylark in Japan, sickness! This guy kick ass with Annihilator too but he's not so mentioned in drummer world.
Double Bass Master... Especially On The Song My Fears Have Become Phobias... Listen To it To believe
144? Really?! Spug is an absolutely fantastic drummer in technical skill, energy, and overall presence. He flawlessly handles some extremely complex rhythms with precision and power. Easily top 10 or even top 5 in my book at the very least. Give "Perversion of a Truth," "Mercy, Severity," and "Beyond the Pale" a listen for a taste.
He's percussion in slipknot not drumming
Will hunt is badd ass! He's a local legend in Orlando Florida. He was in a new band when ours was the tops in town.I remember when they would steal our beers,lil bastards! He is evanescence drummer. I'd also throw in Tim Diduro or Timbo...also local legend and badd ass drummer. Played with slaughter and skid row I believe...
A challenger appears! Listen to the drumming on "Stigmata" and "My Funeral" especially (both from the Angelus Exuro Pro Eturnus album), in fact, watch the video for the latter as well.
What the hell? Inferno is the best drummer
Inferno is like the Duracell bunny, goes on and on. He just kills it!
I'm a fan of him.
Long live the behemoth
Black metal- it don't get too much better than this.
He is just the best...
He's just a beast, enough said.
This guy is a technical genius. He has everything a top drummer needs and more. The least drummers play so perfectly and intuitive and innovative like Dirk does. He also has some very good insight videos on how to get better at what he's best at.
Are you serious? Dirk at the 197 place? He's one of the 10 best drummer in metal. What's that "top" fake?
Extremely creative behind the kit
We all know how great the old school guys are, and we appreciate that they've paved the way, but Matt Halpern is the best drummer of this generation, he is the present and the future of metal drumming. Gotta give credit where credit is due, he's the man.
Let's be honest. Nobody on this list can play like Matt. He is light years ahead of almost everybody on here.
222? This list is a joke. I do like The Rev's writing though he is nowhere near Matt Halpern. - Iannnmg
Why isn't he on here... Best drummer in the world right now nevermind metal
Longtime drummer for Katatonia. In my opinion a great drummer.
I can't believe a lot of these hacks are ahead of him!
Way to low on this list. You may not know his name but simply put he is the best of the best!
High on Fire drummer.
Alex's drumming is a perfect mix of speed, intensity and technique. On top of that, his double bass kicks are just out of this world
