    Matt also played on Destroyer 666's first demo, didn't he?

    Grahame from Infernal Method is definitely great although I don't quite see what sets him apart from the pack?

    Matt Skitz is probably still my favourite though. And there's a fella named Shaun who played for Ne Plus Ultra who is totally off his guts, although he hasn't played in any metal bands since he left NPU.

    The drummer from Alarum (forgotten his name, argh) is a fantastic progressive drummer too.

    But yep, Virgin Donati's the shit. :)

    The drummer from Black Steel Damien Petrelli... his skills aren't showcased in BS, but his own band Syzygy are a prog instrumental band in which he comes into his own.

    Fuck you all. For metal I'd say Dave Haley. He pull of some of the tightest fastest drumming ever - everytime.

    I didn't even know Virgil was an Aussie!!!!

    Good point dude, forgot all about David Haley, that guy's a total nutter too. And he looks so laid-back and relaxed while he's drumming, heh.
