I mean, shouldn't we be making things easier for ourselves and easier on our body so that we can be more creative? I mean in reality, there isn't much in the death metal genre you can do to be creative. There is only one death metal band that I've heard that blew every other death metal drummer I've heard, out of the water. I suggest you take a look at Yattering, they disbanded i think, but that drummer was awesome. His name is Zabek. I should post a song or a music video they had for one of their songs.
Think about the percussion he has with his left foot, though. He can open up new doors because he can roll his left foot around and hit his alternate bass drum or work with his high hats. I think single foot blasting is quite useful.
