You like symphonic and classical music, listen to Death's Human album in order. The songs are written like different movements and the whole album flows really well. The song writing and musicianship is phenomenal. You probably won't like the growling.
I just get pickier. The way everything feels, the gears painstakingly perfect positioning, drum sizes, socks only (no shoes), stick everything, it all comes back to feel and comfort. I've spent so much time getting everything just right that I don't want to play anything else.
I'll second these. And I will also add:
Death - Human
Megadeth - Rust in Peace, Peace Sells...But Whose Buying?
Slayer - Reign in Blood
NWA - Straight Outta Compton
Lots of greatest hits and live albums too, but those don't count in my eyes.
Green sparkle for me. The color is 'Wheel of Fortune Million Dollar Space" green. It's a beautiful sparkle.
I have a yellowed white kit. It's gross. It will eventually be rewrapped black. I thought about the whitening treatment, but if I rewrap it black it will match my other kit.
Hadn't thought about this, and am kinda surprised. Being a metal guy, my volume was just as important. All of it. Meaning, everything was loud. Snare, kicks (especially), toms, and cymbals. Everything was pretty much an equal. The volume was 11 across the board. If I was loud, the crowd got on.
If all you want is ping, Sabian Pro ride. All it does is ping. Bell, ping. Bow, ping. Edge, ping. Wash? Nope, ping ping ping. Throw it down a flight of stairs, ping ping ping ping ping. It only pings, but it does it well.
If the guitar players aren't turning up, you are either too quiet or just right. It's a snarky answer with some truth. If they are turning up, you are too loud.
Watch the crowd. If they are enjoying themselves you are fine. If they cringe when you hit the snare, too loud. If you can hear them...
Whenever I see pictures of myself up to 5 years old, it horrifies me to think that my mom actually chose those ridiculous looking threads for me to wear.
I think those people need to be issued tickets for indecent exposure. I wonder how many pants saggers realize that saggy pants is prison...
Nothing. I'm currently happy with my present state as a drummer, and the journey I took for me to get to this point. Sure, there are things I wish I had learned earlier. No changing that though. It's just like anything, hindsight is 20/20. No point in worrying about it, going forward is the only...
Sounds like you are in the perfect position. No metal bands in Italy? Start one! That's how you get noticed, do something no one else in your area is doing. If you make enough noise, people will start to notice.
I'm a metal drummer in the US. Even though we probably have more metal bands per...
I've been thinking of doing this to my Pearl p902. Drum factory direct has what I need.
For the Camco pedal, get a micrometer and measure the hexagonal crossbar that the cam attaches to. Now go measure every DD crossbar you can. If you find a match, the top part is easy. The footplate...
Another skate park guy here. It was always after-hours. The park doubled as an all ages venue. Anyways we would set up on the top of the ramp, and the mosh pit would run up and down the ramp. It was nuts. You could really feel the ramp moving as they did.
I would be playing, some random dude...
70s music is great. Lots of really upbeat, happy music. I don't really see how people, especially drummers, don't like disco. It has tons of hooky beats and grooves. People like to dance to it. That screams drummer to me.
The clothes are horrid. Stuff of nightmares.
I use two. The left is pingy and the right is washy. I could switch this to two hats and one ride if I wanted, but I can't pick a ride and I really like this setup.
The picture kinda sucks. I'm not a photographer.
