In my opinion, he should try sticking with the bassist and keeping a more steady beat. Everything seems to be played for no more than 20 seconds before there is another snare roll; What is the reason for this? Dave Lombardo got respect for his fills and double bassing, and so did Mike Portnoy (who I find juist as skilled as Lombardo), but they also knew when a steady beat was needed. Brann Dailor seems to almost be showing off.
I just read this through again, are you suggesting that Adler is better than Dailor!!??
personally i can't see that at all, playing a "steady beat" is fine but Dailors style is so much more interesting and really adds to the music. For me adler rinses out the old china/ride over double bass pattern a bit too much. but hey thats standard metal for you i guess.
