    Me too. I seem to be listening to 'In Their Darkened Shrines' almost every other day.

    My person favourites would be:
    • Inferno - 'Behemoth - Zos Kia Cultus: Here and Beyond'
    • Pete Sandoval - 'Morbid Angel - Gateways To Annihilation'
    • Tomas Haake - 'Meshuggah - Destroy. Erase. Improve'
    • Doc - 'Vader - Revelations'
    • Dirge Rep - 'Enslaved - Mardraum; Monumension; Below The Lights'
    • Hellhammer - 'Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors; Winds - Reflection of The I'
    • Gert Monden - 'In-Quest - Destination : Pyroclasm; Operation : Citadel; Epileptic'

    Me.

    Not really. Proscriptor is much more distinct than either.

    ...as well as the Lifesblood EP :cool:

    it's a choice of one out of four for me (can't be fucked deciding)...
    Gene Hoglan, Trym Torson, Brann Dailor or Igor Cavelera.

    Horgh was only on 4 Immortal albums so far (At The Heart Of Winter, Blizzard Beasts, Damned In Black & Sons Of Northern Darkness), and they've released four albums without him. just to be pedantic :hotjump:

    Must mention Vitek too actually, cos he must be regarded as a noteworthy drummer if Vader asked him to deputise for Doc a few years back when he injured himself, which they did :D

    Hehe, ja. But Horgh has such awesome style. His drumming on Damned in Black is just......perfect.

    Brann Daylor Today is the Day/Mastodon- I worship his set

    Gene Hoglan Dark Angel/Testament/SYL

    Lombardo and Cavalera are also excellent choices- and probably the two most influential drummers i know of in metal. Who cant love Igor?

    All of these guys are technically excellent, and play with emotion and their own eccentricities.

    Jesus Christ, I can't believe I forgot Sean Reinert... thanks!

    Also I would like to mention Hellhammer on De Mysteriis... his finest performance ever... fucking brilliant production and atmosphere...nothing matched since..

    Drummers that over trigger everything is just annoying.. I understand the use of them sometimes, but when kickdrums sound like typewriters, its just stupid...

    Flo in Cryptopsy's old stuff. Lost the name of the cd.
    Also Nick Barker "on Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia" and Old Man's Child's "In Defiance of Existence." I love NB's technicality on everything.

    I know buddy, but I said it in reference to his Immortal drumming... he has been in several other groups which he does not really try all that well in... not to mention his horrific choice to join Hypocracy...
