Vlad is rad! I really dig his creativity and what he brings to their songs. Got my tickets too!Opps, someone beat me to it, but I've been listening to Jinjer a lot lately.
Their drummer, Vlad Ulasevich plays a very unique set up with no rack toms upfront, all his cymbals very low and tilted away from him, and he is completely ambidextrous. I love how he can grom from agro to jazzy, and back.
I've seen them twice, and have a ticket to see them again in September.
I started practicing seriously at 30 years old. Two years later I'm doing blast beats at 190 consistently. 240 is a couple of years away, when I'm 36! (hopefully)One thing I find really cool about most of these drummers is they aren't spring chickens. Metal isn't just a young man's game. And it just goes to show that with drums age is only a number, not a limitation.
Check out his playing on Marty Friedman's "Dragon's Kiss" album. The mix is awful but the drumming is really good.And while he's not been in a metal band in some time, if you were into metal drumming in the late 80's/early 90's, then you studied what Deen Castronovo was doing at the time,
I used to have that album until all my cassettes got worn out.Check out his playing on Marty Friedman's "Dragon's Kiss" album. The mix is awful but the drumming is really good.
