Fastist Drummer?
Who is or who do you think is the fastest drummer alive right now? Also what is the fastest metal drummer too?

Sepifilth 2003-03-20 20:43

lars ulrich
i've tried to learn some of his songs, but they are just so fast and long. its amazing.
Very good drummer.


some other good drummers;
david silveria
danney carey (my personal favorites)

MeTalManiac555 2003-03-20 20:47

Are you serious about Lars man? I don't think that he is that great or fast, he is better than me but still, I think that there are people way way faster than him.

Sepifilth 2003-03-20 20:52

Yes I am serious.

He is one of the fastest drummers ive heard.
some of the stuff he plays is so easy (Master of puppets), but he is so famous for triplets, etc. he is amazing.

have you heard one?

The drumming on that near about 4:00 is amazing. That fast on a bass drum is pretty good.

Who do you think is better? I know their are some amazing drummers, but lars is definetly one of my favorites.

MeTalManiac555 2003-03-20 20:54

Yeah man I love "One" I know which part you are talkin about too, that's my favorite part, I don't really know who is the fastest, I just started playing drums and all so I don't know many drummers.

Sepifilth 2003-03-20 21:05

What kind of set you busting on?

I got;
Tama Vintage Red Superstar (All the drummers are envious of my AMAZING sounding bass drum, I have yet to hear anything better)
Stuff in it; Snare drum (standard), two mounted toms, an expansion set of pearl drums, and two floor toms, zildjian cymbals(hihats, crash, ride, splash china)

Acces; double bass pedal, double hihat trick (buying it soon actually), Lars Ulrich sig. Drumsticks

I need to expand it more.

But I really like Lars' drumming, its fresh, even though dated, I havent found a drummer I really like more. (Besides danny carey :D )

MeTalManiac555 2003-03-20 21:22

I have a 5 piece Tama Artstar ES, with the Lars sig. stick also, umm Starclassic snare, still have to get some cymbols and all though, which kind would you perfer for death metal?

artofnothing6 2003-03-20 21:30

if you dont believe lars is good, listen to battery. He reinvents the blast beat. Nuff said.

corroded 2003-03-20 22:24

dude sepifilth if you think lars plays fast triplets & all...youve got to check out jaska raatikainen (children of bodom)...the dude plays triplets at more than 200 bpm for the whole song !!!
other 'fastest' drummers:
dave lombardo
gene hoglan
sean reinart

fuck man wot am i typing...each & every death/black metal drummer is faster than lars

MeTalManiac555 2003-03-20 22:55

Yeah man, that's what I thought too, I like Lars though he is pretty good but not the best. His drum set is bad ass though, I love his damn Starclassic set, I think that it will be my next set, to get a 7 piece Starclassic set with the Lars Diamand Plated Snare.

corroded 2003-03-20 23:03

lars is no doubt a kickass drummer & his kit rulz...the one thing i like about lars' playing is the cymbal shots he hits anywhere in between a bar...and his kick-work is also cool...but that cant just say that he's the fastest out there

corroded 2003-03-20 23:04

and i also believe that metallica sound "metal" nowadays only because of lars

MeTalManiac555 2003-03-20 23:04

Yeah man, I totally agree with you on that.

MeTalManiac555 2003-03-20 23:06

I like all the old shit Metallica used to play, but the new stuff is too slow and kind of suck's but yeah Lar's is the one that makes it sound metal kind of because without him then they would sound pretty much like shit.

Dyldo 2003-03-21 00:18

Gene Holgan is the man.

SinThetIc 2003-03-21 14:58

yeah lars may be good...but he is still a lil bitch.... The drummer from Kreator is sick too... i dont know his name though.... but Lombardo is still god

Def 2003-03-21 15:16

Hellhammer, that mayhem guy, he's like a fucking octopuss

David Silveria? from Korn? What has he ever done thats impressive?

Sepifilth 2003-03-21 19:08

They are drummers that in my opinion I like.

Alot of his beats & grooves are quite nice, if not fast, very creative. Right now Im learning Divine on the drums, the intro is kickass. I love it

Not being a huge fan of death/black metal music I cant say that your true. But tell me some good bands of the genre and Ill download asap....

BassGenius2153 2003-03-22 19:21

Neal Pert from Rush may not be exactly metal but still yet its rock! Lars is very talented to but I'll stick with Neal Pert!:beer:
