David’s Drum Off: Everything In One Place

So that’s it, the list is over.  Hopefully you enjoyed it and hopefully (especially for you non-metalheads) I introduced you to some new players and even some new bands you may not have heard before.

Now the whole Top Ten list is in one place.  Check out the ones you may have missed, or just reread them all because you are that devoted to the art of drumming and the things I have to say about it.

#10. John Longstreth (Origin, Dim Mak, Gorguts)

#9. Kenneth Schalk (Candiria)

#8. John Merryman (Cephalic Carnage)

#7. Mario Duplantier (Gojira)

#6. Flo Mournier (Cryptopsy)

#5. Danny Walker (Intronaut, Exhumed, Murder Construct)

#4. Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson)

#3. Chris Pennie (Coheed and Cambria, ex-Dillinger Escape Plan)

#2. Blake Richardson (Between the Buried and Me)

#1. Tomas Haake (Meshuggah)

So what did you think?  Did I leave out your absolute most favoritest drummer of all time?  Do some of these guys not even deserve to be on any top ten list?  Do you care even a little bit more about the beat masters behind the kits known as drummers?  Are you just glad it’s over?  Leave your thoughts below.

I’ll leave you with this, quite possibly the greatest drum video of all time.  This guy is my hero.  Just wait until the verse kicks in.  Pure rockstar gold!
