I don't know about most drummers I guess, but I definately felt "left out" on some occations, talking to drummers of other genres if they know I'm mainly a metal drummer. But I guess that's the name of the game when you specialize in a style that to a lot of people out there is considered extreme. But I don't care, I got my own crowd if I want to discuss metal and metal drumming. I do respect other peoples/drummers music style though, it's just that nothing I've ever heard has given me the same chills and amazement as a great metal song. I'm mostly into the more melodic side of metal though, thrash/heavy/progressive. A quick link for the guys here not mainly into metal, some very groovy playing here (for metal) . Might not be what you consider a typical metal song though, but it is definately worth a listen. Shows that it isn't all about screaming vocals and aggressiveness. I quickly lose interest too if that is the main focus.
