The Contenders: Page 4

61 Chad Szeliga - Breaking Benjamin, Black Label Society Chad Szeliga - Breaking Benjamin, Black Label Society Chad Szeliga is an American drummer and percussionist from Elyria, Ohio. He is best known as the former drummer for the band Breaking Benjamin.
62 Daniel Williams - The Devil Wears Prada
63 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?

64 Morgan Rose - Sevendust
65 Mike Smith - Suffocation
66 Trey Williams - Dying Fetus
67 Nicholas Barker - Dimmu Borgir, Brujeria
68 Neal Smith - Alice Cooper

"His drumming was ahead of its time his speed in his solos are amazing! The most underrated drummer of all time"!

70 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

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
