Top 10 Best Power Metal DrummersMetal_Treasure Power Metal drummers are underrated and I only can guess why:
1) maybe because it's not a very heavy subgenre and fans don't pay much attention to their drummers
2) maybe because vocals and not drums are the leading element in power metal.
But I have to say that without a good drummer power metal songs would fall apart because power metal is very fast, often as fast as thrash metal. I would say that vocals and drums are equally important in power metal. Guitars are important in all metal.
The Top Ten
His experience in Annihilator (thrash metal) shows on the faster Primal Fear songs. He is very fast, technical and creative.
"Riding The Eagle" - I like especially the fills before and after the solo, the way he pairs his beats with the solo and adds to the solo intensity, and drumming on the entire song.
"All For One"- his solo at 3:55-4:30 reminds me of machine guns sound and creates the climax of the song meaning.
"Strike" - the entire song. - Metal_Treasure
Simply the best!
