Favorite drum riff/passage of all time??

This is a hard one!!

Mine would have to be Tjoldalv's rhythm from 3:42 - 4:28 of Dimmu Borgir's "Mourning Palace" (Enthrone Darkness Triumphant). This is one of my favorite black metal passages of all time, anyway, but the drums in particular are what gets me. They're just so fluid..... SOOOOOOOOOO powerful.

Tjoldalv is one of my favorite drummers on the face of the Earth (would make my all-time Top 5 list, for sure).

A VERY closer runner-up would have to be Children of Bodom's Jaska Raatikainen during the first verse of "Downfall" (album - Hatebreeder, 0:52 - 1:12). I love the sound of the double-kick drum, and he uses it in this song better than anyone I've ever heard, despite being only 22 years old!
