Re: Modern Metal songs with the "best" Drums

Atheist and Gorguts deserve a shout out. Their classic albums were ahead of their time and their reunion albums blow other bands out of the water. Voivod too, even tho it is less complex, it serves...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

I was just watching some footage of Meshuggah (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tD6nG2Debc)playing live and it reminded me of this thread. I see five dudes on working their butts off on stage...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

Electronic music doesn't impress me unless it's made by people actually playing instruments. I'd go see Massive Attack live because it's a group composed of musicians who've honed their craft instead...

Re: Toronto International Film Festival Featuring Drum Movie

Yo I love J.K. Simmons. Didn't realize he was still working. Thanks for the heads up, this might be worth looking into.

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

Small cymbals fly all around for me too, but never off the stand! I don't use wingnuts or felt on my ride anymore, tho. It's easier to hit the bell. Everything else is lightly tightened down, so I...

Re: Self taught drummer.. how do I take my drumming to the next level

The best way to do this: get a teacher. I know it's intimidating, but you will cut down the time it takes you to learn something by yourself by a huge margin. At this point, it seems you're already...

Re: Problems with double bass groove(s)

Try slowing down and starting over with your double bass work, only now incorporate your hands. Find something more comfortable and slower than 120 and go from there. It takes a while, I'm still not...

Re: Always sounding bad when practicing

No! Don't quit! Keep working at it. Tell your brother he's an idiot who should support you, not bring you down. Even the greatest drummers sounded "bad" at some point in their lives. You don't hear...

Re: 2014 Vater Drummies

Eh, I think the list is too bare bones. 4 drummers per category is ridiculous when there are so many equally skilled drummers that were excluded for... some reason. And Dave Grohl won best...

Re: Crush Limited Mahogany or Crush AXM?

I'd go for the Mahogany because I like 6 piece kits, and you can always buy a great snare somewhere else. And I like mahogany's deep low end. I've never played one in person but Crush is certainly an...

Re: Which college will be the best choice for drummer doing rock muisc in LA?

Re: Crap

Yuck dude, that sucks. Coincidentally, I split the front of my index finger last night, so I feel your pain. "The show must go on" couldn't be more accurate haha.

Threads about one cymbal usually ask for something that will mix with their current cymbals. A set can be one-and-done, where individual cymbals seem to demand a thread every single time someone...

Re: I feel like I'm in a bit of a pickle.

I agree with this. Use his kit for band practice, play gigs with your own. If it's otherwise neglected, you could try getting some new heads for you to use.

I've been in a similar situation (tho...

Re: Double Bass Drum Tone Uneven

I think it's more about having a clear beater sound (as opposed to muddy, pummeling fury) and less about uneven foot strength.

It's totally natural to have a difference in sound. Think about...

Re: Sonor Ascent vs Dw Design

Battery is something you put in the back of a remote control. In which case, I recommend AAs, they always get the job done.

Re: Signs you're getting better at the drums

Hahaha! Boy do I know this feeling. I used to think Danny Carey was the greatest drummer ever, now I can play half of Tool's discography. That's how I know I got better.

Re: 20x14 Bass drum for hardcore playing - my point!

Not to mention it's difficult to find "in between" sizes. So many companies make 22x18 bass drums with standard toms and a 14" snare that it takes more work to find different sizes and features (I...
