The Top Ten
Ridiculous double bass and blast beats. Definitely the fastest - MetalFoREVer1228
I bet you this guy can run with 1 leg.
In the edge of human physical limits...
Him and Aaron Kitcher from Infant Annihilator are absolute beasts... Inhuman Drumming. - blasphemianV 7 Comments
His work on Mechanize is amazing! and quite probably not even his best
He is the offically the fastest till now (he reached 1200 bpm in a minute but without moving hands and it didn, t sound cool)
But actually for me kolias is the fastest drummer.. And also where is inferno from behemoth.. Hear a drum solo for inferno of behemoth and you may think that he is the fastest drummer alive.. And by the way Joey Jordison is faster than paul Mazurkiewicz, Gene Holgan, Nick Augusto... But joey jordison ain't technical as Paul Or Holgan.. Even Jordison is my favourite drummer - nooreldeen
Its already been proved he's the fastest drummer ever (second fastest more accurately) - zxm
WFD-World's Fastest Drummer Champ Mike 'the man' Mangini is the only one on this list actually certified by the WFD as the World's Fastest Drummer. Mike held 5 WFD World Records at his peak. WFD is the legit certification and scoring of World's Fastest Drummer, Extreme Sport Drumming events as seen at www.WorldsFastestDrummer.com
For all you Slipknot fanboys who think he's the fastest, you are so wrong. People who say this have never heard of George Kollias or Nile. Listen to almost any Nile song on and after Annihilation of the Wicked, or any of his solo work and you will see what I'm talking about.
Joey jordison is the fastest
This dude rocks it on the drums
He Is the fastest! Look up a Joey jordinson eyeless drum cam on YouTube and you'll find outV 10 Comments
Inferno is the best and the fastest and my favorite drummer. Number one
One of the fastest and most technical drummers ever number 1 for meV 3 Comments
Lombardo shouldn't ever be below #5. I mean seriously! Without him, all death metal drummers would NOT exist! Drummers set the pace for the band's songs, and Lombardo without a doubt did that perfectly. So before voting for a death metal drummer, THINK to yourself - who really started fast drumming? - ThatStrangeKid42
Dave is a pioneer and revolutionary in speed metal. He forged the way for the rest to follow.
Dave invented this style of drumming! He needs to be number one! He is number one!
I bet non of you guys even heard him play if he is in 8th place, I am positive that he didn't leave DragonForce he would be in first place, because there is no news about him anymore, and I am the one who made the comment about him having reasons to live at 17.5 notes per second for base drumming
Listen to his double bass he should be in first place are you guys crazy listen to fallen world, revolution deathsquad, hero's of our time, and reasons to live but reasons to live has 17.5 notes per SECOND
Just Through the Fire and Flames, listen then you will know. JUST DO IT!
Faster then George Kollias
He should be No2!
Just listen to The Violation or Warpledge. 'enough said.
The violation. enough saidV 1 Comment
Seems like nobody here knows flo mounier or the tech death godfathers cryptopsy. flo's speed and technique is on the same level as kollias'
I think Flo should at least be second if not tied for first with Kollias!
When I first listened to Cryptopsy it blew me away, some of the fastest drumming I've ever heard.
Flo should definitely be in the top 3 if not top 2. Excellent drummer and guy.V 1 Comment
The guy triggers his drums, but it was shown that the he can actually play his stuff on acoustic drums, even though he didn't do it perfectly it's still impressive, since he makes the other drummers here look slow.
If we're talking pure speed, I don't understand how people like Gene Hoglan can be before this guy. Now if we're talking "heavy"...
In a literal sense he should be #1 on this list putting him this low is outright stupid
He suppose to be number 1 the fastest drummerV 4 Comments
I love the Rev (no homo) and he's one of my idols, but he's not about speed. The Rev puts more technique into his drumming as opposed to speed, which is why I think he's the all-around best drummer who ever lived (I could care less if he's overrated). - MetalFoREVer1228
Jimmy we love you! You are THE BEST drummer in the world
Jimmy is my idol and he was and will always be the best

Alex has shown in recent years not only is he a great talent, he is so adaptable to all forms of music and excels at them all.
