not picking "holes" but as ive been a drummer for 16 years nearly 2 tips

1) relax you wrists, your using your arms way too much, in gig situation you use more energy than whats needed

2) loosen the sticks they're being strangled let them to do the work especially on cymbals etc

& just practice dont know who else you listen to or how long you've benn playing etc but listen to different drummers & steal stuff I do

Dont be so formulaic. Embelish things on a whim, its very easy to copy what is on the record.

if you are a drummer you gotta give some respect to the death metal drummers as they are some of the most skilled drummers in the world :D

check out this guys drumming:

Kinda makes you feel like your head is gonna explode, and I don't mean that as a good thing. Don't you think any talent these guys have is completely overshadowed by that ridiculous "singing?"

actually i dont, im a big death metal fan and i cant see any other vocal style fit this kind of music. Its very aggressive and just wouldnt work with clean vocals as good, ok maybe if Freddie sang on it :D

vocals aside these guys are incredibly talented musicians and anyone who knows anything about playing an instrument would know that.

oh and i checked your profile info and they are actually from south carolina! lol

I think you mean 'fastest', and not skilled.

Steve Gadd, Buddy Rich - now there is skill!

Death metal drummers are over-rated, like Yngwie Malmsteen is among guitarists.
