Chris Pennie is my favorite, but I don't think many people would consider him to be a metal drummer.

I have to say Danny Carry is the best metal drummer of all time, if you don't agree just listen to ticks and leaches, just listen to all insane stuff he is doing, when u can find someone who can play it better than him then they will be the best metal drummer.

IMHO that's one of the easier pieces I've heard out of Danny. There's a lot of notes, but none of it is actually that hard. A lot of it is just broken up accented singles with double bass underneath. I'd pick Lateralus, The Grudge or Triad as much harder songs to play accurately from that particular album.

Seriously, you must hear Morgen Agren on Fredrik Thordendal's "Sol Niger Within". Danny Carey is great, but learning to play his parts is a question of transcribing and practicing. The stuff Morgen is doing on that Thordendal record... well... yes. There's a few bits I can't even get my head around where the pulse is sufficiently to be able to transcribe!

Mike Portnoy( Dream Theater)
Jordan Mancino (As I Lay Dying) one of the fastest double bass players in my opinion
Chris Adler (Lamb of God)
Jason Bittner (Shadows Fall)
Travis Smith (Trivium)
Bobby Jarzobek
Joe Sottile (Children of Bodom)

And if you think Joey Jordison is good i laugh the the band has three percusionist jordison is a everyday decent drummer.and yes i have seen his solo

I really like his style. Its not all just rolling double bass, but he only uses it when its needed. I hate it when drummers play rolling double bass throughout the song, but I have to admit that the drummer for Malevolent Creation is an absolute beast. He does some of the craziest stuff.

Default Re: tell me who is the best metal drummer!

Now this is my kind of thread. It goes without saying there is no "best drummer" of metal or any genre. However that said I do have my personal favorites.

Derek Roddy, One of the most skilled death metal drummers out there. He is very diverse ranging from death metal to funk. He is one of the fastest death metal drummers out there, YES FASTER THAN JOEY JORDISON. Great player, and a very nice person. I'm on his forum. www.derekroddy.com

George Kolias- Current drummer of Nile and Sickening Horror. He is very skilled as well following in the same vein of Derek Roddy. One of the fastest double bass parts used in a musical context is on Nile's lastest work "Annihilation of the Wicked" which is clocked at 256bpm 16th note singles. However it's not just his speed that is amazing he is a great over all drummer. Also a very nice guy.

Richard Christy- A very great drummer as well, not as fast as the above to but very skilled. His playing with Death on "Sound of Perserverance" is absolutily jaw dropping. He also played with Iced Earth, Controlled Denied. One of my major influences and member of my all time favorite band.

Gene Hoglan- He played on Symbolic by Death, a very pivotal point in death metal history. He is fast and technical yet can work the pocket with such ease and skill. His current work with Strapping Young Lad, although not as technical as Death is much more "pocket" orenited.

i've read through a little bit of this forum, and i want to thank everyone who mentioned jason bittner from shadows fall. he, in my opinion is the best. and those who mentioned joey jordison...ill admit, hes pretty good, but i just cant stand slipknot. to me, the band is mostly show. and their lyrics are just terrible. i do listen to metal and all related, but to a certain point. slipknot could be great...if they would just focus on the music. anyways, yeah, bittner to me is the best.

John Otto- metal? he gets my no. 1 vote. i could rave about him, but i'd be here for ages
Chris Adler- precision and sense of musicality have left me jaw-dropped
Matt McDonough- not the most dynamic drummer in terms of volume, but still a tremedously clean drummer, who rarely draws attention to himself out of the music's context

I guess it depends on the individual and the music he/she(/it) listens to. I like very much metal music, like A7X, Roadrunner United, Trivium and so on. But I very often find the instrumental music from Arch Enemy very very good. When it comes to drummers, I would say that Joey Jordison is one of the best (in my opinion) and the fastest guys on the planet. Also, I think Pantera could be proud of their drummer too, or A7X, or Shadows Fall.
Honestly, I like J. Jordison and The Rev most.
By the way, does any of you guys know what could be The Rev's actual name?

Hmmm best metal drummer thats a tough one.

If where talking speed and technique or just personal prefence then I reckon the best metal drummers are top 5:

1. Gene Hogland - check out Death: Symbolic the album, you'll know what I mean!!!
2. Tomas Haake - bloody fast drummer and plays technical odd time signatures
3. Raymond Harrera - plays fast double bass but also has chops to match with his feet!!!
4. Igor Cavalera - awesome single stroke rolls and fills, with a wicked latin groove influence: plays for Sepultura of course
5. Peter Wildoer - unique style, fast technical etc etc: plays for Darkane.

Also, if hes not actually bull shitting, the drummer from Necrophagist Hannes Grossmann, listen to Epitaph and you'll know what I'm talking about, INSANE drums of that album, took 8 months aparently to record though ha ha ha ha

mmm best metal drummer, rather than do a list if i had to pick one, technically, i would have to pick Gene Hoglan, the guy has a good history stretching back 20 years, he is just as accomplished at doing fast (Darkness Decends anyone, the guy was like 17-18 when this came out truely one of the BEST metal albums of all time) his double bass grooves on the albums he did with Death are again outstanding, and if anyone can point to a better use of the sticks than on these Death albums i would love to here them, he is fantastic live, a machine that seems to not tire. I cant think of metal album whose technicaliy would be beyond Gene if he were to play for them........but how many drummers could come up with Genes parts let alone execute them.........so has far as metal drumming goes....he is the one.

I'd definitely go with Mike Portnoy. He's just in a league of his own. His technique is awesome. His creativity is even more awesome. And he plays in odd time signatures like he's gonna win something for it (which he has). He doesn't have the fastest feet ever, but he's not exactly lacking in that region either, not to mention fast feet doesn't necessarily make you good.

I've also seen Chris Adler alot in here who on Lamb of God's cds plays like the Lamb of God. But I bought the Modern Drummer 2005 festival DVD (which he's on) and his technique, and execution live isn't quite what it is in the studio. Still his creativity is far above par. Not to mention he has the best outlook on playing his instument I've ever seen. He hasn't even been playing that long either. He started when he was in college. So he's on my list too.

The drummer from Rhapsody though (i don't know his name) has probably the fastest feet I've ever seen (outside of the fastest feet competition). So he's also on there.

The drummer from Blind Guardian also is on my list for feet. He's not just quick, but he has stamina like nothing. There's songs where he goes almost nonstop for the whole song, and their songs are averagely 6-8 minutes.

The Reverend (from A7X) is also big with me. He's probably my favorite next to Portnoy. The way he works his playing into the music is fantastic and I'm almost in love with his fills. He is definitely the drummer that has had the greatest impact on my playing. (next to Dave Weckl)

I've got some more id write about but I've gotta get going.
