Martin "Axe" Axenrot
Hi everyone! Axe is a great drummer in Opeth. Does anyone have any idea of Axe's set-up? Sabian.com doesnt have his info, but he is on there as an endorsee. Please help with any info on his cymbals set-up, i know his drum set-up. Thanks! :)

Axe's performance on the new Opeth song released from their upcoming album Heritage is absolutely STUNNING.

Re: Martin "Axe" Axenrot
wow his work on the new song is awesome. leagues better then watershed. This is actually on the same level if not better then Martin Lopez's drumming on their previous stuff.

I think part of it is due to the fact the production on this album is going to be fantastic, to the point where I think they recorded the drums and bass together live actually...

I usually preferred Lopez' playing as well, but his drumming on Watershed was still fantastic. I think I agree with you on this, this is truly great, beyond anything else I've ever heard him do.

Re: Martin "Axe" Axenrot
Yeah, he's gotten quite a bit better as he's eased into Opeth. Even comparing the Albert Hall performance to Roundhouse Tapes, he sounds much more sure of himself and comfortable, and seems to have gotten a better feel for the music. Comparing the two different live versions of Bleak is a great example...he absolutely BUTCHERED the intro groove on roundhouses, but actually pulled it off fairly well at Albert Hall. I saw them shortly after Axe officially replaced Lopez and found myself cringing at parts (Windowpane, especially), but it does seem like he's improved. Should be interesting to hear him again on the new tour.

I wasn't a huge fan of his playing on Watershed, TBH. It wasn't bad, and he's got chops, but his playing "felt" like a typical metal drummer, and his repetitive fills got a little monotonous (e.g.: burden).

Re: Martin "Axe" Axenrot
Hello everyone, I am rarely ever posting anything on these threads, but I had to do it now. I obtained the new album "Heritage" by Opeth, and wanted to encourage any drummer and fan of drumming regardless the style and expression to give a listen to this album, and especially pay attention to the song called "The lines in my hand". I think Axe has really shown his maturity as an instrumentalist, but also he serves these songs with utmost respect for the rest of the instruments, and still stays pretty busy playing. I just wanted to say: "Excellent work, Axe!" Still, just only my honest opinion!

Best regards!
