Re: The Reverend
I see..............Personally, I think his fills are ok, but just ok. I'm still waiting for the song where "The Reverand" can bare all his skill, so as to really impress his fans (thought that does not include me). Dave Lombardo shocked his fans with the Slayer song "Silent Scream"; at the time, no one had gone over 200bpm for the sheer amount of time Lombardo did in that song. I think it is a skill when a drummer can create great fills out of nowhere, and can make them interesting. One thing I don't understand is that, if the guitarists don't hold back, why should "The Reverand" ? The drums are just as audible as the guitars and vocals (the bass is the only instrument that cannot be heard very clearly), so I think he should let loose.
Passion is poison laced with pleasure, bittersweet. One of many faces, that hides deep beneath.
