Default Re: Jon Dolmayan

One thing I don't understand is why people say to take a listen to I-E-A-I-A-I-O if you want to hear his drumming for real. Because there really isn't anything special to the drumming in that track. Not that I don't like the song. But if you want to show others his drumming ... IMO his best playing is on Mezmerize

Show the groove section of B.Y.O.B. for sure.
And then the section in Revenga, with the offbeat hi hat and that figure on the ride ... a very cool part.
And then Question has some nice work in the odd time parts ... how he orchestrates both the 9/16 and 3/4 sections before the chorus is very well done! My two favorite SOAD songs are Question and Aerials for sure.
Dreamer easy in the chair that really fits you.
