Once you get used to them you can understand them quite well. People diss you for being a metal head? So what, what do they know?
Also, if you want a sick drummer who is like 1000x better than Joey, look at the band Divine Heresy. Tim Yeung is amazing.
The metal/thrash drummers I am most
Anders Johanssen (sic?)
EDIT: how could I forget Vinnie Paul oops. Just listening to pantera this morning.
