New Killswitch Engage Cover

Yo guys! Covered a new KSE song, The Call, last week. Pretty damn catchy song with neat blast beats and stuff. I hope you guys like it!

This is the first drum cover I have watched. I think your snare has a crappy tone. I like the shot changes. I think your a bit loud in the mix. I didn't notive any real mistakes, seemed like you kept time very well and had a lot of fun with it.

I would (and this is just an opinion) clean up around where your recording. Make your back drop have only you and the drums in there. Also, A camera angle adjustment could make it much more interesting. Maybe try shooting from above and behind the set, and maybe try to get some shots of the foot action going on, especially when its a dominate part of the rhythm. Maybe a shot under the cymbals but above the toms? Idk. have fun with it try new things.

Your pretty damn good.

Solid cover, bro. I have yet to listen to KSE's new album, but that was definitely a solid cover and deserves more views. I don't have much to say for improvements, except that I guess I will agree with caw1 that your snare could have a little better tone; but I didn't mind it that much.

I don't think there was any sloppy playing here at all. You've got good feet, and the parts at 0:43, 1:20, and 2:27 looked taxing as all hell, but you played through them up to speed and with a consistent rhythm. I'm no drummer, so I might be overlooking some mistakes, but from what I can see you nailed it completely man. 5/5

EDIT: I see a chimp spanner cover on your youtube profile.. oooooh aaaaah....

At first, huge thanks for the feedback! I've been strugling with the snare sound for a half year now. Never been 100% satisfied on the sound. Kinda agree with you about the tone.

The recording place where I used to play was really messy. I was way too lazy to clean it up Gonna think about different angles for the next video. Been using this setup for pretty long time now.

Thank you once more!

Thank you man! Yea, those blast beats drove me a bit exhausted. Had to kinda rush them through.

I'm glad to hear you liked the The Mirror cover! Chimp Spanner is always lovely to play along
