some metal band nearby messaged me on myspace and asked me to play drums for them. drums aren't my main thing, they're just a hobby, but i figured why not? i'd be helping them out til they could find someone better, and maybe make some money gigging in the process, since i don't work. i might go jam with them on friday, but i wanted to post a youtube video of me playing so they could see if i had the right style or not. i was wondering what something good was that i could play on drums to impress them. i'm not like really good, but i never had a problem with "Smells Like Teen Spirit" when i first learned it, and i can play Pearl Jam, Creed and other rock stuff by ear, since that's all easy. their influences were like Skid Row, Pearl Jam, Pantera, Iron Maiden, and other metalish stuff like that. nothing real crazy. so, any suggestions?

Bat Country is supposed to be pretty impressive, although I don't recall what it actually sounds like.

Lots of people, especially metal heads , don't like Avenged Sevenfold, but you have to give The Rev his props because he is really good at drumming. Learn some drums from A7X songs, and you'll be in for sure.

Judas Priest - Painkiller would be really impressive. But you probably can't drum that. Very hard stuff.
Some power metal if you are good with double bass?
