Some drummers use Heel/toe. Not all of them though.

I heard that their drummer uses drum triggers. It's another way to cheat. Of course you could also say that it's another way to make life easy for yourself. But you've got to suffer for it, man.


Not true.... I use triggers for my death metal band. It is not cheating at all. It just defines the bass drum sound. When you are playing without triggers in a fast and heavy band, the bass drums get lost in the mix. Triggers are a way of solidifying your sound.

Fear factory is not that fast. You should check out some REAL fast drummers. Berzerker (of course), Nile, Hate Eternal, Morbid Angel... i could go on forever but i dont feel like it. Vinnie on Damage Plan is pretty good now too.

I have to disagree with you all. Triggers are not completely cheating, but they do allow a drummer to play sloppy, and not be called on it. It allows him to barely tap the bass drum, and still get a perfect sound. This of course allows him to play faster, even though he may not be doing it 100% right..Some will say thats cheating, some wont. Either way Decapitated and Vital Remains have the best drummers ever...

Forgot to mention, triggers are also used so that in a live show setting, people dont have to spend a lot of time on mic'ing the drums, trying to get good sounds.

I'd just like to point out that you can use triggers to sound faster/better than you are.

1. You can play soft or hard however you want, as long as you trigger the sampler, it'll play a good hit.

2. You can add samples containing 2 hits instead of one, thus enabling you to only play half the speed.

I'm not saying people do though.

Yup, that is why some will call it cheating, because there are naturals who play just as good with no triggers

No, i mean if a guy played on a regular kit, his left and right kicks might not sound even, even if there are on time. The triggers allow perfect sound, also allowing you to play faster than you really are.
