Should be number 1
Let's get this classic up on the top 10 - MetalFoREVer1228
The drums make this song even more epic than it already is. - RiverVibeZ
Most popular doesn't always mean the best. Compare this intro (now #1) with 'Haunted' by Annihilator (now #17) and you will feel the difference between the most popular and the best. - Metal_Treasure
Such a widely popular drum intro. - MetalFoREVer1228
How can legendary song like this be this low? - DejanKalinic
Cozy Powell was a god - TheStargazer
This should be number one. It's Cozy Powell, I mean Cozy Fking Powell
Timeless classic.R.I.P. Cozy Powel. - Metal_Treasure
My favorite drum track from Slipknot and one of the fastest I know - Danielsun182
Everything about this intro is epic. One of my favorite drum parts from The Rev. - MetalFoREVer1228
Jimmy made this so amazing, it's absolutely beautiful!
I can listen to that intro over and over again - Lem
The best song ever. go a7x...
This isn't anything special. Just a bunch of snare hits. Same with No More Sorrow.
Based on this, Ov Fire, and Dead Memories being here, I can conclude that I don't think some of you know what drum intros are. - MetalFoREVer1228
My favorite Dream Theater song. And Mike Portnoy's epic drumming is the reason that its my favorite. - MetalFoREVer1228
Should be one. It is like Mike Portnoy is an octopus. - IronSabbathPriest
I wish Mike Portnoy stayed in Avenged Sevenfold. No offense to Arin Ilejay, but Mike is utterly amazing. - Lem
Once again, Mike Portnoy dominates the drums. - MetalFoREVer1228
I love this song's drumming more than every other song's drumming. - Feirceraven
Mike Mango is a boring drummer. I wished, Portnoy was still there with the band.
The best and longest drum intro I've ever heard - 50 seconds of tight flawless drumming.
Mike Mangini is one of a kind drummer. Thumbs up! You can hear a section of the intro from the sample below. - Metal_Treasure
Seriously a very technical intro courtesy of Tim Yeung. - MetalFoREVer1228
Epic intro. Jason Costa is just a hell of a drummer - MetalFoREVer1228
Mike Mangini - top notch metal drumming. Just an awesome intro! - Metal_Treasure
Joey does some great blasting for this one. - MetalFoREVer1228
Sheer delight. Long live Randy Black! - Metal_Treasure
No offense to whoever added this, but Black Veil Brides are NOT metal and shouldn't be misinterpreted as such, and if you consider them metal, well... I don't know what to tell you - MetalFoREVer1228
