The Top Ten
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...
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
One of the most diverse and impeccable drummers I've ever heard. Saw him play live while chimaira a few months back and he blew my mind. This guy deserves to be on the top ten.
To watch Austin play live is such a treat! Great Drummer!V 27 Comments
An extremely underrated drummer in a, sadly, underrated band. Pure awesomeness.
Simply the best extreme drummerV 2 Comments
Unreal speed and yet never gets sloppy.
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.
Kolias is a machine!...V 1 Comment
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 - nooreldeen
The best of the best...Dave is a thrash metal god
Dave is once of best drummer of all timeV 1 Comment
Black metal legend, brutal, insane
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.
Very amazing drummer he did good jop with both All That Remains and The Black Dahlia Murder... - nooreldeen
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 not actually extreme metal drummer
But pantera are thrash metal bands mixed with some groove metal.. - nooreldeen
