The Top Ten
This kid has always been my favorite metal drummer in the entire planet. Trust me I saw him grow into the incredible unstoppable bomb droppable G that he is. Been killing ya'll softly since the late 90's and no one knew till now. you other drummers can't touch him. Thugmetal is a lifestyle and certain type of heart. you gotta live it to shoot it. And believe me this kid has. He will always be my copilot on the Slaughter Jet! Headbang if ya Gangbang
Homie is just hitting the sticks hard. So heavy and diverse. It blows me away to see a drummer nail every different sound. And I love how Austin will sit down and actually talk to you. Like you known him all you lives... Do not underestimate this guy...
I heard in Chimaira was playing but the only original band member left was mark hunter, I wasn't guna go. So I went. I watched them play, Austin blew my made my night even better. Hands down an awesome drummer very talented and awesome dude
Austin the one of the best, very unique beats and cymbal patterns. Been watching him Since the Bleed the Sky days hope for the best for him. Now he's been in Chimaira and now DevilDriver. The dude is a BEAST
An extremely underrated drummer in a, sadly, underrated band. Pure awesomeness.
Dude is a living metronome and double bass beat - insanity
Simply the best extreme drummer
Seen him live crazy skills
He did very amazing work with nile.. Nobody can play like kolias does... He is the fastest drummer alive... He did very amazing work with nile hear songs like Kafir, Lashed To Slave Sticks, The Fiends Who Steals The Magick Of The Deacesed, Annhilation Of The Wicked, cast down the heretic
When it comes to extreme metal drumming, this guy is the definition. Single foot blast at 295bpm? No problem. Just listen to "Kafir" and you'll agree
Lets be hoest, dave rules, but technically kollias is simply the best, for me followed by inferno and vitek.
Unreal speed and yet never gets sloppy.
He's a great drummer, and doesn't need to rely on triggers for his kick drum strokes to be audible. Great humble dude, and is really versatile.
"What can I say? The man is featured on half of my all time extreme metal albums - from Cradle of Filth, to Dimmu Borgir, to Old Man's Child. Unique, fast and above all sheer creativity.
His drumming in principle of evil made flesh is my favourite drumming on a metal album ever.
His the reason old Cradle of Filth sounded so dark and brutal back then, I wish he never left.
His drumming in lock up is insane.
He is the best thrash metal drummer alive he did very amazing work with slayer... He is the drummer who began playing with the fast style without him there won, t be most of the death metal drummers... And most of the drummers nowadays all of them are influnced by dave lambardo
Greatest drummer ever he should be number 1 he invented the blast beat
The best of the best...Dave is a thrash metal god
Dave is once of best drummer of all time
The best drummer ever. Not only for being extremly fast and the most technical one. But his feeling for groove and being able to play some kind of shuffle on the Hi-Hat while blasting is intense as hell! And those Ride patterns... Damn!
I don't like him as a person but he's a great drummer.
His drumming is so fast and sick!
Just listen to Pagan Fears
He's a top 3 material when it comes to extreme metal drumming
Come on, if you ask for a reason you haven't been paying attention to Meshuggah in the last 30 years.
Black metal legend, brutal, insane
Shannon is such a great drummer and a fantastic guy. He is very underrated most of the time. His work with TBDM and battlecross is one of a kind. Sucks that he isn't with them anymore but good to see he went back to school. Shannon rocks!
Very amazing drummer he did good jop with both All That Remains and The Black Dahlia Murder...
Doesn't get any better than him
Very amazing drummer not actually extreme metal drummer
But pantera are thrash metal bands mixed with some groove metal..
Wow I didn't know pantera was more than one band. Jeez, nooreldeen, work on your English
I don't think he counts for extreme metal
Joey in the top 10 and Flo Mounier at #31 makes me wonder who votes on these metal lists...
Slipknot isn't extreme metal. They're nu metal.
The most overrated drummer alive.
Very amazing drummer he is very underrated seriously
Very amazing drummer really... Words can, t describe the greatness of this drummer hear his drummer with black dahlia murder in songs like "Into The Everblack"
And you can try his drumming with abigail williams he is E P I C I can, t believe that nobody knows about him expect few..
No matter where he stands in the ranking, each one of them should be equally rated as the greatest.
Extremely underrated from the public eye. Not only is he crazy good at drums, he's halarious on the Howard Stern Show
Listen to his drumming is like going into a trip
Excellent drummer! Crazy work with SepticFlesh!
Decent drummer but not extreme metal so get him off the list
I can't believe that this guy and Jan Axel are low in this list
