Top Ten Best Metal Drummers

The Contenders: Page 9

161 Eloy Casagrande

He's a beast! I just don't understand why he's not already in this list. He's fast, very technical and powerful!

What this kid does is AMAZING

Way to underrated

162 Minato Masafumi (Dead End)
163 Andols Herrick

I can't believe a lot of these hacks are ahead of him!

164 Brent Smedley (Iced Earth)

Way to low on this list. You may not know his name but simply put he is the best of the best!

165 Tipu (Warfaze)
166 Desmond Kensel

High on Fire drummer.

167 Justin Foley (Killswitch Engage)
168 John Fred Young (Black Stone Cherry)
169 Dasa Zebta
170 Alex Holzwarth (Rhapsody of Fire)

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

171 Sebas Sampieri (Artema)
172 Gustavo Choairy (Ocranna)
173 Sujk (Deluhi, Arkhelism, Undivide)

I think, he is the best drummer from JAPAN after Yoshiki (X-JAPAN). You must watch and listen his show!

174 Robb Reiner Robb Reiner

I've seen many of the drummers on this list live. Bill Ward, Vinnie Paul, Mickey Dee, Nicko McBrain, Neil Peart, Scott Travis, Igor Cavalera, Vinnie Appice, Tommy Aldridge etc. They are all amazing! But my vote goes to Rob Reiner. Nobody plays like him in Metal. He has so much going on in every Anvil song. Some might say he's playing too much. I keep coming back for more. Rob is a true drumming inspiration!

He is one of the best metal drummers in the history.

Best Metal drummer since 1981 till today

175 Tommy Clufetos

He toured with Black Sabbath on their reunion tour in 2013, and is just ridiculous. Look him up you won't be dissapointed

176 Donald Tardy (Obituary)
177 Trey Williams (Dying Fetus)
178 Peter Criss Peter Criss George Peter John Criscuola, better known by his stage name Peter Criss, is an American musician and actor, best known as a co-founder, the original drummer, and an occasional vocalist of the hard rock band Kiss.

Was the monster drummer on the best selling live album ever "Alive"

179 Eric Singer Eric Singer Eric Singer is an American hard rock and heavy metal drummer, best known as a member of Kiss, portraying The Catman originally played by Peter Criss.

Drummer for Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Lita Ford, now Kiss. Not so much an originator as a highly adaptable one.

180 Chris Fehn (Slipknot)

In slipknot he's playing percussion not drummer
