Hey guys I am curious to see who you all consider the most brootalz (or kvlt lol) extreme metal drummer is.

Personally I am a huge fan of drummers like Lord Marco, Trym and Zach Gibson.

Who do you guys think is the best in extreme metal??? I feel that drummers in this arena are far beyond what any other genre has to offer.

I'd say Gene Hoglan. His stuff with Strapping Young Lad was brutal but tastefully done.
#4
hellhammer and inferno are my personal favs.

frost and faust (early emperor) also are nice.

Lern2drum.

Anyway, not that 'extreme' but Kai Hahto has an astounding technique, and Mario Duplantir just for the fact that he hit's the hell out of his drums and it shows on his records, which is a rarity these days. Especially in double bass/blast work.

I'm waiting for a lot of George Kollias' in here but i'd strongly disagree. He is the Alexi Laiho of the drum world.

Pinto "Menthor".

He is a portuguese drummer, who plays/played in the bands "Epping Forest", "Morbius", "Corpus Christii", "Necrosadist" and "Lvcifyre".

He also was the teacher of my band's drummer...

Tomas Corn > Flo Mounier.

Well, he was, shame he had to give up the sticks.

Flo is awful sloppy, he makes it quite clear, especially in earlier Cryptopsy that he can't actually blast that fast.

I love Hellhammer in some Mayhem and most Arcturus. Him and Inferno (I think thats his stage name) from behemoth are my favourites. So the usual favourites of a non-drum-playing metal musician

I'd probably say Martin Lopez and Hellhammer are my two favourites. I also love Faust's work, it's just full of power.

Corny Althammer.

His name alone is enough to send any man into a coma induced by the shrinking of the testes.

Gene Hoglan is an obvious choice. His work with SYL is fantastic, but he was just as good with Death. Sean Reinert's drumming on Focus also deserves a mention, imo.

Ventor (Kreator) is one of my favorite metal drummers, I love how he can create patterns and fills that are just as memorable as the riffs but lay down those thrash beats when needed. Also, Igor Cavalera, for similar reasons. Though all in all, I think Vinny Daze (Demolition Hammer) just might be my favorite thrash drummer.

I also feel tempted to say Danny Carey, but of course, he doesn't belong in here.
If I took this cigarette and put it out on you...


...would you love me?

Vinny Daze is a drummer who suits the music perfectly. He does nothing more or less than just add the special touch that make you think 'wow'. Not flashy, or showboating in any way, just exactly what DH needs. The drum world needs more drummers like that.

I love the drumming on Flying Whales, even though it's far from being an extreme metal track.
Sean Reinert for his technical ability, but also being able to scale back and make it tasteful. Gene Hoglan is a very tight player, his double bass playing is ridiculous, and he's a pretty good replacement from Herrera in Fear Factory.

Watching him live was unreal. I basically spent all of their set with my eyes fixed on him.

And he has that drum face that's like 'OHHH GOD, SHOULD HAVE GONE TO THE TOILET BEFORE WE CAME ON STAGE'

If you're looking for interesting drummers, Extreme Metal, or even Metal for that matter is the wrong place to be looking for. Sure there are plenty of excelent drummers, but for the most part, it's probably one of the most stale of all genre's in terms of interesting drum work.

In all fairness now, when I saw him last year he was untriggered and (I never usually say this) perfectly accurate. No joke. Perfectly. That includes the ridiculously quick non-gravity blasting, like in Cold Hate Warm Blood.

I meant back in the earlier days on the records. I'm not at all familiar with newer Cryptopsy so i can't speak for that.

Yeah, his snare used to slowly disappear after a while, but he's perfected it all now. Right now he's up there as one of the most able drummers in metuhl.

Darren Cesca.



its funny you should mention him.. I live in va beach and Noah (arsis bass player) works at the guitar stoer here, and he told me and my friend that darren was the worst part of the album.. made his parts to technical and was an asshole.. Not to mention his bass drums were awful ><
#33
Does anyone besides me find the lack of Tomas Haake in this thread disturbing? He's awesomely talented without being boring, imo.

Yeah, he does come off as an asshole but he is a great player. I have to disagree that he was the worst part of WATN (you can clearly see the drumming on that album was excellent... well IMO). I personally like his bass drum work.

Guy from Acid Bath is great.
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.
