Default Re: Jurgen "Ventor" Reil

I actually had the oppurtunity to meet Jurgen at the concert I went to (check my sig). He's a nice guy and so is the rest of the band; all of them are very down-to-earth. I asked him about a few techniques on double bassing (Enemy of God has crazy double bassing). He basically practices endurance at a slow pace, and then speeds it up gradually; he can go somewhere in the range of 230 - 240 bpm. He's also really tall (probably around 6'4" or 6'5"), so he said he can reach the toms very easily.

Passion is poison laced with pleasure, bittersweet. One of many faces, that hides deep beneath.
