No one seemed to mention one of the most versatile drummers walking the planet- Sean Reinert. For shame, people. For shame.
Wil Calhoun (Ex- Living Colour) is a jazz drummer now. Best hands I've heard.
Joey's not bad for what he does. He's just not up to the leval that most of the DM, BM, etc. drummers are on. And lots of people hate him cuz of his band. (not accusing anyone here)
Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater and, having just downloaded a few rush songs, Neil Peart.
gene hoglan, flo mournier, trym.
how does everyone feel about children of bodoms drummer
I'm not a drummer but here goes:
virgil donati (planet x)
sean reinert (death,cynic,aghora) the best in my opinion
gene hoglan-i won't even try
danny carey (tool)
Nick Barker (cradle of filth,dimmu borgir)
that guy from meshuggah
mike portnoy (dream theater,transatlantic,liquid tension)
neil peart (rush)
carter beauford (dave matthews band)
henry ranta (soilwork)
dennis chambers (niacin?)
richard christy (death,iced earth,burning inside)
Personally, I like him alot. At first, I didn't. I thought he kinda sucked. But then I listened and he isn't sloppy, in pretty creative, and kinda fast. He's got a style diffenent from the bands I was used to. But I've grown to like it!
I've got a question about neil peart. Why does everyone like him so much? I've listened to some of his stuff, even a drum solo, and wasn't impressed in the least. Did I miss something?
thats cool cause i thought he was quite an underated drummer its good to see someone else with similar viewpoints
Trym- for his crazy fills
Martin lopez- his great amounts of funk
The drummer of the Berserker- unrivalled speed
Flo Mournier- technicallity
Remember Confessor? The drummer in that was fucking cool. He was like a human octupus. Very odd time signatures.
Pete Sandoval from Morbid Angel
Neal Pert from Rush
It's impossible to say who is best because there is so many different drummers that can't be compared..
But here are my fave drummers.. in no order..
Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy)
John Longstreth (Origin)
Derek Roddy (Hate Eternal, Internecine, Nile, Malevolent Creation, Aurora Borealis and so on)
Tony Laureano (Nile, Internecine)
Pete Sandoval (Morbid Angel)
And many many many more..
Hahah I still have that video, that little kid is unbelievable.
He is fucking amazing.
My fave has to be Sean reinert. He played on the Human album by Death and on Cynic and another project called Gordian Knot. He's the fauckin' man, from the fastest death style thru to really moving jazzy stuff in 'Knot. I rate him far above Portnoy, although Portnoy is very good, (I agree that he can be slightly mechanical, but if you're playing that perfectly you're never gonna quite sound human) but the originality of Reinert is amazing (and I'm not even gonna talking about his hi-hat work!)
Then I make it a dead heat between Hoglan, Christy, and Portnoy.
I noticed that most of the drummers mentioned have been death metal, but have any of you guys heard any Dennis Chambers? His Latin American rythms are a total mindfuck!
Yes, they are. And how about Terry Bozio? (or whatever, I can't spell)
-thomas haake(probably the best!)
i also vote for neil peart but to me he is not a metal drummer!
How could I have forgotten Igor. Stupid me.
