Top 10 Songs with the Greatest Metal Drumming Performances
The Top Ten
Mind-blowing, technical, extremely fast and skillful Drumming by the greatest drummer Heavy Metal has ever seen: Scott Travis. He is the best, no comparison. And Painkiller is the greatest performance in both Rock and Heavy Metal for Drumming, Guitar works and undoubtedly Vocals[Rob's a Monster! :)]. So, Painkiller wins without a doubt.
Gr8st drum solo ever, its made with a perfect riff by downning and tipton and awesome tenor singing by rob... Scott kick starts the song with a hype
Imagine drumming the 13 minute extended version, pain all around.
Mad drum intro by Scott Travis
Thomas Haake is not a drummer. He is an alien from another planet. He came to earth to enlighten all drummers from this world and show them the true meaning of limb autonomy.
If you can play this, then you are not human...
Polyrhythms, enough said.
Oneof the best drummer in the world
Brilliant double bass in 3 parts of the song
The song itself has such great lyrics
The hardest song to drum played by the best drummer ever!
Holy crap... that roll at the beginning... let's see anyone other than Portnoy try to get half that speed. Mind-blowing
Really good fill in at the beginning, Portnoy is technically one of the greatest drummers ever!
Oh... My... God. I wanna see any of the posers out there who call themselves "prog metal"... "bands" do that alternating roll.
P.S. when you watch DT videos on youtube watch out for imsorry110 (reddrums110).
Not THAT impressive for #4 position. Overall an average drum tabs, with an over-focus on speed & aggression rather than technicality which is a crucial criteria for this list. It's pretty easy to play once you learn double bass & pick-up the speed.
War Ensemble has double bass nearly all the way through, crazy stuff, and Raining Blood is even faster on drums. Slipknot's Joey Jordison is great too, but I don't know why they picked Before I Forget down there, that's a pretty slow Knot song.
This has the best drum work in history of metal. It always sends shivers down my spine every time I played this song.
The word Lombardo will appear on dictionary when this guy retires.
Masterpiece from the master Dave Lombardo
128 time signatures. I love it's base a 2 number.
A7X has better drumming than a song with 128 Time Signatures in just 6 minutes? LOLOLOLOLOL
Freakish drumming by Danny Carey!
George Kollias - isn't he the most insane drummer ever?
(technical death metal).
Nick Menza, though slightly underrated can really drum even in fast songs like this!
Compare it to anything, >>anything<< looses every time :P
Epic and skillful drumming (Mike Mangini). Awesome intro - fast and long (50 seconds).
Francesco Paoli is a sick sick sick drummer (technical death metal).
Really fast intense metal drumming by Lars Ulrich!
Mike Portnoy's drumming rhythms are really groovy in this.
What an intro! It makes me smile every time I hear it. Rob Reiner is the best!
Beastly drummer, that one foot action. One of those metal drummers who never went to double kick through principle. m/
And Dyers Eve isn't a "drum performance", unless you count drum programming. He can't even play it live. Silly Lars
What the hell?! Why is this song at 16th? This is genius amazing single bass and tom work
Very fast and technical abilities professionally shown by Niko Mcbrian
Mike Mangini - unmistakable musicality and technical skills.
