Hi guys.
Sorry I haven't been around much the last few months.........But, this was the reason.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmMNNWKRoNk&feature=sub

I've been very busy and just now getting my life back to normal...from editing video and audio for the last 4 months!!!

Just wanted to put up this press release and say hello to you all.

Hope all is good and drumming is progressing!

Cheers,
D.


A short teaser for Derek Roddy's instructional video "Blast Beats Evolved". For more information on this video, visit HudsonMusic.com!

With Blast Beats Evolved, extreme metal master Derek Roddy has created the definitive educational document on contemporary extreme drumming and modern metal styles. Drawing on his experience both as a world-reknowned metal drummer, his critically-acclaimed work outside the metal world, and his background in drum education and clinics, Derek provides the perfect balance of performance and instruction to help you advance your understanding and technical skills for this music.

Metal styles and techniques such as skank beats, traditional blast beats, bomb blasts, hammer blasts, freehand blasts, accent blasting, hand/foot combinations, rolls and fills are covered in extensive detail, with multiple examples for each topic.

Going beyond the beats and fills, Derek provides a complete conditioning program to improve your overall command of the drumkit. COvering areas that include balance exercises, a system for equaling the feet, improving your endurance and moving around the kit, Derek touches on areas that will assist all drummers - not just metal players.

This incredible package also contains 5 solo jams, 7 Serpents Rise songs, a detailed discussion of the equipment and setup used, interviews, and outtakes.

Blast Beats Evolved provides an unprecidented look at the state of modern metal drumming today, along with an extensive program to improve your personal approach to the drums.

Running Time - 2 hours 49 minutes

Hey Derek, I have never played metal or double bass but your drumming and music has helped inspire me a lot. I am always getting cool ideas from you and taking them in different directions - Well, like I said, I don't play blast beats or metal but I will definitely get your dvd!

Thanks man!

Can you or someone here help me with this?

I'm trying to figure out some of your playing on a Youtube Namm 2009 (friday) clip. The grooves are at 1:24 and then 1:47. I play some things close to this but like on the second one your right hand on the hat is hard to figure and could sure use some help with transcribing. Thanks.

Jiva

I just got through watching the session (all eight parts) you and Eric Moore had in Moscow, man you cats were really cookin'! I really dug that cymbal you had mounted by your left bass, working it with the pedal. Very solid. Stay up.

Anyway, love your drumming and keep up the awesome, totally inspiring playing. Arthur
Cheers brother...
You know ....on the head thing....I just use what is available...in all the correct sizes. So, I don't really have a preference between coated and clears. As long as they match! Haha.

Ha...thanks.
Well, it's no secrete.....I got here by playing....A LOT! No specific exercises or anything like that....I just played a lot of drums....and kept an open mind about what I wanted to achieve with-in this style of music.

Hi Jiva...wish I could help you on that.....I haven't seen that vid in awhile and as much as I'd like to say "I knew what I was doing"....mostly, I have no idea! Haha.
Sometimes stuff just comes out....you know?
You peaked my curiosity....I have to go look now! Haha.

Very cool sound out of that thing. I've got a buddy who's got an extra single pedal and want's to setup a cowbell to it, but I'm going to have to show him that clip. He'll drop a deuce in his pants the size of a brick.

Hey Derek,

I'm excited man I just ordered the book you wrote The Evolution of Blast Beats and I am freaking stoked! I never knew about you until I bought my MD Festival 08 dvd's and you blew my mind away! I have started drumming pretty late (started at 23) but you as well as all the drummers on those dvd's inspired me even further to pursue drumming so thanks man! I had to say that, you take it easy now.

Hi Mr. Roddy, I don't listen to metal at all, or play any, but I have a lot of respect for you and your playing. It's not easy to make that stuff musical, but I think you've pulled it off, with your own musical voice aswell.
Cheers, Phil :)

You will LOVE the book. The CD that it comes with is kinda helpful, but having all those various blasts written out is enormously useful.

Also, some of his speed/endurance exercises are pretty excellent. I just did an hour of the 4/8/12/16/singles and seriously at the end of the hour I was already more comfortable doing single stroke double bass rolls than when I started.

Hey there....well that's a loaded question! Haha.

What I've done to my drum sound personally...is get away from sounding "metal". haha.

There are a lot of variables with this topic but, the reason modern day metal drums sound the way they do isn't because of the drumtuning or EQ....it's because of sound replacing!
(You'll have to do some research about this on your own....way to much info to type here.)

That said...there are a few things that can get you close with a natural kit.
Back in the "old days"....we used a variety of things to get that bright, punchy sound....that lead to all the modern drum samples used.

First...kick drum.
To get that tight, bright sound...you just need to EQ the crap out of it.
Add top end in the 6 - 8K range...this gives you the snap.
Cut some mids...you'll have to play with this to see where the drum will sound best to you. Mids....give you your "tone" and "type" of sound. That's a personal preference issue.
Last low end....and contrary to popular belief.....you filter anything below 100-80 Hz.
This will clean up the muddiness that low end give.... when a lot of notes are being played.
The actual amount of notes....is what creates that "rumble" we associate with metal music...not low end.
Snare...nothing special really. Just compress the snot out of it and, have a nice drum.
Toms....same as kicks.
Over heads....I like to filter all low end....up to about 400Hz for metal stuff. This removes most Tom and kick bleed...giving you a cleaner overhead sound.
Of course all of this depends on the type of sound you're going for but...for metal...as a general rule....this works.

Now, head choices....don't think that matters as much but, most metal players use 2 ply heads (I do not..I like the tone of singles).
Emp and pinstripes really do the trick but, remember.....drums just sound like drums.

All of this processed stuff you hear in these drum sounds on record ....usually aren't the actual drums being used. or they are eq'd very heavily......in other words...there is no way to get a metal drum sound...unless you record your drums.

Drums are drums and the principle of all drums are the same...from a audible point of view.

Hope that helps...
cheers,
D.

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has commented on the book, DVD or my playing.
Drummers are just the coolest bunch of musicians out there.

Ultimately, I'll be able to continue to grow from the influence of ALL YOU GUYS!

I dream of the day of becoming the drummer I want to be.....much like all of you....I'm sure.

Cheers everyone.

Drummers are just the coolest bunch of musicians out there.

Ultimately, I'll be able to continue to grow from the influence of ALL YOU GUYS!

I dream of the day of becoming the drummer I want to be.....much like all of you....I'm sure.

Cheers everyone.

I feel honored to be in contact with you.

I've been doing some of your endurance exercises and I have to say I see improvement every day. I just started taking some of the speed advice found in this thread and it's helping me as well. I'll be picking up the evolution of blast beats next month, I'm really excited about the countless hours I'm going to throw at this.
