Top Ten Best Metal Drummers

The Contenders: Page 9

161 Gustavo Choairy (Ocranna)
162 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

163 Nic Pettersen (Northlane)
164 Luke Holland (The Word Alive)

I love him. Incredibly talented drummer. He's not a kid who just playing around with the drumstick, throw it spin it, he got an unbelievable techniques. He's so flawless. And yes he's so cute when he's smiling.

He's relatively new, but holy crap, this guy is the real deal. I don't know why I have to add him.

165 Jay Weinberg (The Reveling) Jay Weinberg (The Reveling) Jay Weinberg is an American drummer and the son of drummer Max Weinberg. He has played with the punk band the Reveling and toured in 2009 as a drummer with Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, substituting for his father.

I like this drummer better than Joey Jordison and Jay looks like he actually like playing the drums in Slipknot unlike Joey Jordison from 2004 through 2013.

New Slipknot Drummer, He should do good!

166 Namtar (Carach Angren)

I've been scrolling through this list waiting to see Namtar, but apparently this has become a popularity contest. I mean Lars Ulrich? Seriously? Also fast drumming doesn't necessarily mean good drumming. Get it together

167 Brian Tichy (Whitesnake)

Great drummer this days!

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

One of the innovators in the blast beat drumming technique

171 Justin Foley (Killswitch Engage)
172 John Fred Young (Black Stone Cherry)
173 Dasa Zebta
174 Sebas Sampieri (Artema)
175 Sujk (Deluhi, Arkhelism, Undivide)

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

176 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

180 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.
