Hungryfreak;2176081 said:That's a nice kit you've got there and some nice skills to boot. I really need to actually practice my drums... May I ask how long you've been playing?
Gowienczyk;2176145 said:Never listened to them, personally.
Ultimatum;2176146 said:Thanks. I've been playing set for about 2 years, IIRC. Pad for 2 and a half.I guess I've progressed rapidly, but I need to go back and work on rudiments again and the finer points of technique. Up until recently, it wasn't uncommon for me to clock 3-5 hours on set in a day.
Gowienczyk;2176111 said:Art Rock is a generalization/umbrella term for any rock that takes a artistic route, experiments, etc. It has no set sound, so it is not a genre.
Hungryfreak;2176165 said:I'm still at the process of picking up the instrument, myself, technically. I refuse to take lessons and hardly practice... Im thinking of setting up something for myself, though, starting with spring break.

instantdeath999;2177049 said:Question for the drummers on the board.I have a friend who has become obsessed with grindcore, particularly the pig squealing brand. I like grind enough, however, he's convinced the best drummers on earth are in grind bands because of the speed, and the best drummer to ever live is from Berzerker. Just to make sure I know what I am talking about, blast beats are not technically advanced, correct?
Ultimatum;2177417 said:For the most part, no they are not technically advanced. It doesn't take too much technique to build them up at all and it's pretty easy to play anything underneath straight 8ths/16ths. The only point where technique really comes into play is when you reach ungodly speeds, like 8ths at 270+BPM.

instantdeath999;2177547 said:How good would you say the drummer for Berzerker is? I've never heard them, and can't at the moment, but it's literally all he talks about, and knowing his music taste, I have my doubts.
Ultimatum;2177597 said:One more thing, I can't tell from the quality, but judging on where he's holding the stick, I think he might just be doing a gravity blast, using the rim for leverage.And As I Lay Dying's drummer has some pretty slow feet when compared to machines like Kollias, Roddy, Mangini, Minneman, and Sandoval. And just about all those drummers can play in other styles as well, except Kollias, I've never seen a video of him playing anything outside of DM.
instantdeath999;2177596 said:Phhh, according to my friend, the fastest drummer ever is synonymous with the best drummer ever
