Tomas Haake, Gene Hoglan, and Martin Lopez are my top 3. Martin lopez is probably miles away from the other 2 in technique but his creativity,class, and style make him easily one of the best.

ken schalk and danny carey for me, they have the chops and the amazing coordination and tecnicality, and ken schalk brings some nice jazz grooving to the table as well. But yes props are due to folks like Holgan and Reinert

No one has included Matt McDonough from Mudvayne!

Admittedly some drummers listed may be 'better', but he definately deserves to be on the list!! :D

Would anybody call Virgil Donati metal?
Not necessarily, but he could play it with maximum intensity if he had a gig.

Jukka Nevalainen - Nightwish
Snowy Shaw - Dream Evil
Casey Grillo - Kamelot
Richard Christy (formerly of Iced Earth)
George Kollias - Nile (not very technical, but listen to the guy's feet)
Thomas Stauch (formerly of Blind Guardian)

These guys aren't the absolute best, but then again, who can actually say they're the absolute best?

What? Huh? DId he, did he actually say? Snowy Shaw of Dream Evil? Ok I know everyone's tastes are respectable, but i can't help but viewing Dream Evil as a big joke. I suppose Snowy Shaw has some talent but if you listen to just the drums it'll sound no different than most funny dungeons and dragons bands, well there are a few good ones, like Demons and WIzards and Raphsody.

That's actually the whole point of Dream Evil. They pretty much are making fun of the whole power metal scene.

Re: tell me who is the best metal drummer!

Theres some good names so far but I cant believe no one has mentioned Igor Cavalera.
Also "metal" could mean alot of things. Scott Travis and Derek Roddy both play metal but you're not gonna get Judas Priest and Hate Eternal on the same bill if you get what I mean. They cant all be compared.
But you can ignore that as long as you know about IGOR.
