Barker is real good, IMO. He played for Cradle years ago and has been with Dimmu for quite some time.. I'll tell ya what, he's QUICK. Real quick. And he's got a suprisingly cool groove in his playing, which isn't too common in most of today's metal drummers who think speed is everything..

Butting in on the Jordison thing, I think he's good. But he's not the best. There is no best, its as easy as that. We create in our mind who is best.. but in reality, there are too many genres, too many drummers, to really know who is the best. I'm not too big a fan of Slipknot, but I certainly acknowledge that Jordison is a good drummer. I dig Richard Christy over him any day. I absolutely LOVE his stuff with Death on the Sound of Perseverance. Its really good stuff. Gene Hoglan is another great metal drummer.. Don't know if we can drag him in, but Mike Portnoy never ceases to amaze me either (Prog Metal...? =P).

And as for Latin, how bout eram, eras, erat, eramus, eratis, erant? =P

John's a good drummer for sure, powerful and he seems to have his own unique sound. However much you try and emulate it's difficult to come across with his own sound, a very good drummer with a good knowledge of cross-genre playing. I don't think he used double bass before Mezmerize, but he seems to do it very well. I personally preferred it when he used single, as it was 'his thing' but it works. No complaints, I like him a lot.

good call whoever mentioned blake richardson (between the buried and me, glass casket) that guy is sick as a sick thing. the way he matches a sucession of beats to each riff in glass casket is fantastic, and his style is perfect on btbams alaska.
also: vinny vinh needs respect for the mathmatical tightness of reflux's live show along with the speed and perfectly planned drumming, but somehow keeping an organic feel
video
video2
also worth checking out if you like v. technical guitar playing
i think for mathcore style 50 different time signatures per song, the guy from ion dissonance has the edge on dillinger escape plan.

+ the obvious ones (carey, haake, cunningham(maybe not that tech but just a really good feel) etc)

There are plenty of better drummers in metal than all 3 of those. Those are just "mainstream" metal drummers. Listen to Chris Pennie from The Dillinger Escape Plan.

Just attended two clinics - same day - same place: PASIC

Jason Bittner and Jimmy DeGrasso.

So these are for me the Greatest at the Moment. Did both great Clinics and speedwise and technically absolutely on Top. I just think, would make absolutely no sense in Metal to play better or even faster.....

You know, for all the great drummers mentioned, ie Hoglan, Christy, Reinert, Roddy etc...
There is drummer that is being completely overlooked, IMO. His name is Steve Flynn, and he drummed with the band Atheist. His style is really unique, check out "Unquestionable Presence"

Riggghhhhhhhhhhhhhht. Which Iced Earth drummer?

There have been about 10, but I think you're referring to Richard Christy. Either way, I'm inclined to disagree. And speed isn't everything.

Vitek from Decapitated is technical and very powerful. I was lucky enough to drink sum beers with them last week when they came through Cleveland. Those guys are the most down to earth guys you could meet.

here's their newest sh*t

Bernhard, you REALLY have to check out Morgen Agren on Fredrik Thordendal's "Sol Niger Within" album. It's devestating stuff.

Yes Finn, I have nice friendly contact with Morgen. I included him on Drummerworld. He wanted to send me some new material, but didn't arrive yet.

i have a great version of Chicken - drumwise. But groovewise I prefer Maceo Parker, or Jaco with Kenwood Dennard or Peter Erskine.....or even the version of Dave Weckl - video from the Drummers Collective Day in New York....

I've never been the biggest fan of his fusion stuff, but you have *have* to hear "Bouncing in a bottomless pit" from that Thordendal album. It's seriously the most astonishing piece of metal drumming I think I've ever heard...

Joey Jordison is my favorite metal drummer, not the best but he plays drums perfect for wat band he is in. I like some of the fills he comes up with too.

Has anyone listened to Dan Foord from the Band "Sikth"
I like his style and technique etc.

In my opinion ,i think Bobby Jarzombek would be up there with the best of them

Yes, dan foord from sikth is very good, I think the production on their album is dissappointing though. The "Let the transmitting begin..." ep had a much crisper yet rawer and definately more metal sound. For example the first version of "hold my finger " I far prefer. I think they've changed labels now though as they weren't happy with the album, hopefully their next album is good and soon.

3 miles a day is definitely not impressive. It's good that he exercises, though.

I'm shocked. I never realized that was the same guy. yes very tallented indvidual however. I think cradle of filth is less to be desired for. Dimmu Borgir is better by leaps and bounds. I think its the cheese factor of black metal. Not to mention he is a very large individual wich is kind of uncommon that is if your not counting Gene.

maybe on cd but live he really makes the band exciting, cause I saw them with the other singer and it was boring, Lord Worm is exciting to watch cause the stuff he does is hillarious, his little quotes in between songs are the best! But just watching Flo play is enough excitement, he is a machine! I really want to see Roddy play though, I think he is really good too.

Unfortunately I don't hear much metal, but when I think of best fast and hard drummers, Joey Jordison always comes to mind. I hear of drummers that are "much better" but I think Joey has a very good technique with double bass beats and very quick rolls involving all parts of the drumset...

Hmm, tough to say best in terms of drumming, but I believe all of these guys totally OWN in their own right. Sure some aren't as fast as others, but they all helped form the sound of their respective band while having extreme skill:

Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden)
Jason Rullo (SymphonyX)
Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy)
Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, LTE)
Richard Christy (Death, Iced Earth)
Vinny Appice (Dio)
Dave Lombardo (Slayer)
Neil Peart (Rush)
Gene Hoglan (SYL, Death)

For example, Flo Mounier may be the "Lombardo gone mad", but for the time they were out, and for the agression Mr. Lombardo crafted in Slayer and their albums, I wouldn't necesarily say Flo's "better" than Lombardo... And NO I'm not just saying Portnoy and Peart because I have to, I love both of those bands and couldn't really imagine them with any other drummers.
