    I just watched his solo and at about 3:20 he is insane.

    I was just wondering what you guys think of him as a drummer?

    Where does he rank? (The idea of rank is childish, i know, but I'd like to see more stuff like this)

    ...so throw some names/bands at me!

    He's good but not among the elite.

    Although Flo is excellent, as a matter of personal taste I think Pete Sandoval, Richard Christy, Trym Torson, Hellhammer, and Proscriptor are the best metal drummers.

    I think hyperspeed and drum solo showiness are masturbatory and not really a good indicator of skill. I prefer to look at things like the beats and fills used and how they complement a song.

    does the guy from behemoth trigger his drums?? if not, he is probably #1 for me

    gene hoglan (death, other bands) would also be in my top 3

    He does, but using drum triggers has nothing to do with how well you play.

    Flo is a really good drummer and the first metal drummer to ever really impress me with drumming skills. I also really like Derek Roddy and Hellhammer those three are drummers that really stand out for me.

    He's good, but he's no Lars Ulrich.




    (I'm joking, for the challenged among you).

    Flo is the only talented crew member aboard the "SS Cryptopsy".

    Dave Mackintosh (who was in Bal-Sagoth, now in Dragonforce) is also pretty good. All these metal drummers are good but the only few who really stand out to me is Portnoy and Rullo. imo.

    This sounds like something Zephyrus would say. :)

    Mounier is okay to me, but I prefer other drummers to him.

    Recently i've realized Flo can be sloppy at times, but i still love the way he plays. He's definitely good but no Gene Hoglan :worship:

    another great death drummer was richard christy, who is doing comedy now

    brann dailor is another pretty good drummer for mastodon

    mike smith is another good one (though underrated) for suffocation

    Sean Reinert is much better than Gene Hoglan.

    Agreed.


    I've said it before and I'll say it again, Chris Pennie (Dillinger Escape Plan) is my fave metal drummer. His technique is flawless, his technicality is insane, and he's creative as fuck.
