Default Jaska Raatikainen

Jaska Raatikainen
He is not here and I thought I would put him up. He is the drummer for an amazing finnish metal band named Children of Bodom. I would highly reccommend anyone who listens to heavier music to listen to Children of Bodom! For most of Children of Bodoms songs he does blast beats. When he plays the drums and does fills he doesnt hesitate at all and does the fill in an instant he is very percise and fast. Listen to to them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At all costs! Say what you think about him and not who you think is better. Thanks
Here he is!

He's a talented drummer, and since he uses Pearl and Meinl I happen to think he has excellent taste in hardware.

i personally love metal and all sub genres of metal i mostly into metalcore/ hardcore/ moshcore and the only reason i ever listen to children of bodom is for the drums im not a fan of anything else about that band i think hes a great drummer but should not be with that band ....... if you want good metal drumming check out ion dissonance or despised icon ....its not steady machine gun DB or blast beats but good technical drumming

I love children of bodom, the riffs they come up with are inspired. Jaaska is a very talented drummer and contributes to te band greatly,. a lot of it is standard metal beats; but there are wuite a few really cool fills in the songs
