Top 10 Underrated or Lesser-Known Songs with Interesting DrummingMetal_Treasure
The Top Ten
A pretty complex beat for its time (1971). It's almost a melody. Progressive metal drumming often uses complex beats but prog metal emerged much later. I've said it many times before and I'll say it again: Deep Purple as a whole as well as each and every member of the band were much ahead of their time. Respect!
drummer: Ian Paice
(a very underrated drummer compared to his counterparts from Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and The Who - John Bonham, Bill Ward and Keith Moon, respectively). - Metal_Treasure
Thanks for mentioning this song. Ian's drumming is absolutely epic! - Gg2000
This is the most specific list on this website, congrats.
2:08-3:33 (drumming and multi-layered vocals in this section make it the best part of the song, in my opinion).
drummer: Frederik Ehmke - Metal_Treasure
It's time for something extreme (extreme progressive metal). The song is over 11 minutes long and there are several interesting things but I'd like to mention those delicious, complex and proggy drum beats (mostly in the intro - play the sample) and a cool drumming moment at 5:30-6:10. There are also blast beats in the song and so on.
drummer: Daniel Presland
(he was crowned as the Fastest Feet in Australia in 2006 because he was the Australian finalist for the World's Fastest Drummer Competition) - Metal_Treasure
Parts of the song have some really cool drum beats. I adore this song.
There's a video clip to this song on YT (recommended). - Metal_Treasure
The drum solo at 3:55-4:30 reminds me of machine guns sound and creates the climax of the song and its meaning.
drummer: Randy Black
(he is ambidextrous - there aren't many ambidextrous drummers) - Metal_Treasure
Play the sample to hear part of the drumming - Metal_Treasure
Just play the sample
drummer: Thomas "The Omen" Stauch - Metal_Treasure
The section from 2:15-3:15 exemplifies the beauty of the double bass sound and drumming as well as Randy's ability to make drums a lead instrument for a whole minute. It sounds awesome to me. Play this section loud and focus on drums.
It isn't a complex beat and in general isn't hard to play but the tempo makes it hard to play. Randy's stamina is impressive.
Although the entire song is really good, I often replay only the mentioned section of one minute.
drummer: Randy Black - Metal_Treasure
Drumming to the entire song is pretty impressive for its speed but there are 3 different cool drum fills that were the main reason to include this song:
1:00-1:05 (the sample features it), 1:40-1:45 and 2:25-2:30.
I would buy the drummer a beer.
drummer: Felix Bohnke - Metal_Treasure
The Beatles cover.
Coroner added cool double bass drumming that I like a lot (5:20 onwards). - Metal_Treasure
Drummer: Cozy Powell (also known for his work in Rainbow) - Metal_Treasure
The album cover is a little obscure, but they put bongos in this guilty pleasure dancehall song. I secretly love it even though I say I hate it. Now that’s what I call bad love.
