Back during Zeppelins time they were considered heavy metal..So I would go with John Bonham but if not him...Chris Adler by far!

Derek Roddy and Reno Killerich has the fastest feet in Metal. Reno now drums for Dimmu Borgir.

definitly its Kai Hahto from WINTERSUN. he is fast, musical, and percise. and he has alot of musical background.

also Bobby Jarzombek is a really awsome drummer. he is extremlly talented as well adn very percise.

Dave lambardo also is very great. (even though im nto a fan of slayer.)

Well Tool is progressive metal so I guess my vote goes to Carrey, but there are so many drummers to name and so many different types of metal. I would also have to mention Jason Rullo, Gene Holgan, Dirk Verbeuden, David Haley of Psycroptic ( which I have just discovered, truly one of the most impressive Death metal drummers to date ), Chris Alder, and on...and on and on :D

It still amazes me that Brann Dailor from mastadon gets so little press on this site. My favorite metal drummers would be:

Brann Dailor
Thomas Haake
Danny Carey
Igor Cavelera
Vinnie Paul
Also love Chris Kontos' playing on the first Machine Head album and Dave McClain's on the second.
Abe Cunningham (Though not a metal drummer he does play in a metal band of sorts)

Re: tell me who is the best metal drummer!

Well well an old thread with an old type of question which can of course not really be answered, but here are my favs(in order)

1.Thomas Haake(hardly anyone could ever fathom what meshuggah does)
2.Hannes Grossmann(drummer for Necrophagist, insane creativity and speed, the songs are completely composed, NO hit of a cymbal is coincidence)
3.Martin Lopez(brings the best style I have ever heard)
4.Derek Roddy(techniqually maybe the best and fastest but I dont really like his bands)
5.Richard Christy, sorry dont know how to write it(drummer for "Death" , so much details and amazing cymbal work in his playing)

In my opinion, the best metal drummers are in order from best down are:

Danny Carry (if you consider tool metal) - Tool
Chris Adler - Lamb of God
Pete Hammoura, Derek Roddy, or George Kollias - Nile
Blake Richardson - Between The Buried And Me
Mark Castillo - Bury Your Dead
Zach Gibson - The Black Dahlia Murder
Mike Justian - Unearth
Aaron Gillespie - Underoath

Jordan Mancino (As I Lay Dying) is one of the best rising metal drummers out there his double bass speeds surpass joey jordison (slipknot) and chirs alder (lamb of god). to me hes the fastest double bass player out there.

Re: tell me who is the best metal drummer!

your forgetting the malevolent creation drummer. that guys insane at double bass, even though i dont like his non stop double bass. its still pretty amazing at what he can do
 
Re: tell me who is the best metal drummer!

At the end of the day, you can have all the speed in the world, but when you think best all-around metal drummers I tend to think Tomas Haake (MESHUGGAH) and Gene Hoglan (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) are the best of the best.

Wrong again; try looking at Mike Mangini...
