I guess I've already answered this in the death metal thread, but I think Mike Smith of Suffocation is a beast. Simple and solid on Effigy of the Forgotten, more fluid and technical on Pierced from Within, you can really hear how he grows through the discography. I think he was 16 or 17 on the debut.

I'll give it up for Gene Hoglan as well. A legendary patriarch of death metal drumming.

Since someone already resurrected this I'm just wondering if anyone else is a fan of Dirk Verbeuren.

I'm not a massive death metal fan, but the guy is a monster.

I couldn't find a clear video of his hands alternating between standard and hammer blasts at high speed but that that's quite difficult to do cleanly. He does it a lot on Aborted's albums.

Matt Greiner from August Burns Red--dudes insane, enough said
and
"Yogi" Watts from Demon Hunter--very fluid, intense but also reserved when need be

Mario Duplantier from Gojira is my favourite drummer by far. Thomas Hakkes is prety dope too. I think Mario is too underrated for how well he plays, he deserves more credit.

As long as it's favorites and not who we think is 'best', I'll say Jukka Nevalainen (Nightwish) and The Rev (A7X).

Christoph Schneider of Rammstein is my favorite Metal guy.

I'm not really into Metal anymore, but when I was teen ager I was obsessed with Rammstein. Schneider's drumming is simple, but so driving and effective. If anyone doubts his drumming ability, listen to his pre-Rammstein work, and their newest album Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da. He really cuts loose on the songs from that album.

+1 to that Dave Lombardo, Vinnie Paul are all close but in the end its Charlie, and a hell of a nice guy to boot.

Nothing, NOBODY, will ever match Ben Koller.

I'll link one of the rare (maybe the only one I've found) videos where he makes a mistake:

Travis Orbin, drummer for Sky Eats Airplane and early Periphery stuff. He's mostly a session drummer now and has has over 100 youtube videos of his work. Crazy, imaginative double bass and polyrhythms that are out of this world. Listening to him makes me want to give up LOL yet at the same time inspires me to improve and tighten my drumming.

It's also a blast figuring out and playing anything James cassells does.

Also, check out Travis Orbins drum set up! One of the strangest setups I've ever seen.

I'm a big fan of Shannon Lucas in the metal world. Watching these guys play un-edited is what does it for me.

Honestly, Justin Foley from Killswitch Engage for me. He just plays so musically, not all speed and flash. I get the feeling that he could play any style of music you threw at him not just the genera his band is.

Justin is great. I saw him, well 2 weeks ago with KSE, but 2 summers ago with Unearth. He sounded great playing Unearth's stuff. I really like his style too.

Mine's gotta be Jon Karel of The Number Twelve Looks Like You. I feel he is definitely one of the more musical and exressive metal drummers, and his incorporation of polyrhythms, diff time signatures, and diff. styles into metal are unique and inspiring (to me at least).

Here's one of his songs:

Here's some of his more soloistic stuff:

Matt Garstka- the new drummer for the insane tech-prog group, "Animals as Leaders". This guy is really great at playing forcefully, yet relaxed. Nice approach, nice feel. Check it:

Not a fan of that "Cymbal" sound, they sound more like trash cans....kinda like how I feel about most Giant Beats I've heard.
He's got some skills though that's for sure.

All of my absolute favorite drummers to have played in the metal genre didn't limit themselves to it so anyway they're Donati, Agren, Lang, Coluita, Carey, Reinert, Jarzombek and Seth Davis who played with Exhorder. I could probably list about a dozen others I hold in a special regard / as above anyone else I'm aware of but those are the names that immediately come to mind.
