Top Ten Most Underrated Metal Drummers


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Daniel Williams - The Devil Wears Prada
62 Shawn Drover - Megadeth Shawn Drover - Megadeth Shawn Drover is a Canadian musician, best known for his work with the American thrash metal band Megadeth.

Shawn should be in the top 5 because he can kick some ass. Just listen to his playing on the last few Megadeth's albums, he just doesn't sit there. In my book he should be 1st or 2nd and he's a great live drummer, he keeps Dave happy and he even said that Shawn was the best drummer he has played with! That's really got to count for something, don't you think?

63 Morgan Rose - Sevendust
64 Mike Smith - Suffocation
65 Trey Williams - Dying Fetus
66 Nicholas Barker - Dimmu Borgir, Brujeria
67 Tom Hunting - Exodus Tom Hunting - Exodus
68 Joey Jordison - Slipknot Joey Jordison - Slipknot Joey Jordison, is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer best known for his work as the former drummer and co-songwriter for the heavy metal band Slipknot as well as guitarist in the Horror-punk band Murderdolls.

I wouldn't exactly say that Joey is underrated, but he's still a kick ass drummer. - MetalFoREVer1228

Dave is the father of the double bass drumming! He's amazing, he's the best metal drummer ever! Yes, even better than Lars, The Rev and Joey Jordison - Nintendonix

Many deathcore drummers are very underrated, mainly because deathcore is such a hated genre. But guys like Daniel are some of the fastest drummers I know about. Listen to Samael the Destroyer by Oceano. That has some of the best drumming I've ever heard - MetalFoREVer1228
