...I have ever seen. Its sad when younger people consider today's drummer as having talent. This is talent, technique and entertainment. At first its a bit slow but...just watch.

Whoa....yeah, thats awesome.

For some reason, my first thought was how the human mind for innovation and performance peaks in the 20's and early 30's, after that its all downhill.

Not even in the same planet as the guy in my OP, IMO.

I played drums in my younger years, have been following drummers and this little guy I think its the most amazing drummer Ive heard in recent years. of course my favorite still is Buddy Rich. Man, that guy was faster than the speed of light!

As soon as I saw "amazing drummer" I knew someone would bring up Danny Carry. Never fails lol. He's good, but no where near as talented as a lot of the guys competing. His parts fit tool songs amazing, but thats different then writing music on the drums.

Chaman apparently you've never heard of the band Death (They invented Death metal BTW). The drummer is amazing and if you can't see that you're a moron. It isn't about the double bass. It's about the fact that it sounds like he has 4 arms on parts of that album.

No its an opinion, my opinion. Recurring to calling others with a different opinion, morons, is a clear sign of vast amounts on immaturity. Do you even know what that is?

Have you ever played the instrument? It sounds like he has 4 extremities, no more no less. If you have to bring insolent words to this thread by all means go listen to your Death Metal crap some more. I have no respect for any of your opinions. You are an ignorant little insignificant insect. I remember when you tried to even discuss neurological medical issues with me, because you used to work in a hospital....damn. That went well for you, huh?

That little kid showed more talent in those few minutes than that crap you tried to pass as music. Ask anyone with REAL music sense or anyone who have ever played. Go play doctor some more and go to bed early, kid.

I can name a few people who I think are great and were influential. Babby Dodds, Chick Webb, Kenny Clarke, Roy Haynes, Buddy Miles, and Sid Catlett. The drummer in the original post was okay, but compared to those who came before him, he doesn't hold a candle.

My user name gives away the Peart/Rush appreciation and it is Rush that got me to pick up the sticks years ago.

I'm with you, Endersshadow...nice to see some love for Death. Chuck changed lineups almost every album but the two on which Gene Hoglan were involved ('Individual Thought Patterns' & 'Symbolic') are just phenomenal. The 32nd note kicks and triplets in 'Crystal Mountain' and 'Sacred Serenity'...goodnight. That album blew me away in college and I spent many, many hours trying to get that stuff down solid...it's still a challenge every time I saddle up. To think Gene didn't even pick up playing until age 13 and is completely self-taught makes it all the more impressive. Have you seen his DVD entitled 'The Atomic Clock'? It's a great look into some of his technique if you are interested and gives some insight into how he constructs the pieces with so much more than just speed in mind. Not to mention he's a humble, approachable guy. He went on to do some work with Strapping Young Lad and most recently with Death Angel.

Richard Christy came in for The Sound of Perseverance and I really thought his work was killer too, namely 'Bite the Pain' and 'Scavenger of Human Sorrow'. Maybe not quite the same technicality of Gene, but it's about so much more than that.

The arguments over 'greatest', 'fastest', blah, blah, blah just bore me...music is so subjective...if you like it, that's what matters most. The Danny Carey comments are always there...it's just a matter of how many replies before it comes up. I'll take the minimalistic yet oh-so-groove-oriented, soulful Jerry Gaskill of King's X anyday.

Nice to see someone who has heard of Death. Symbolic is a great album too. I didn't realize he was the drummer for SYL. Has he been the drummer for all of their albums? I have their first two albums.

I think that a lot of music elitists automatically think fast and heavy playing = crappy and over-hyped retard with a foot spasm. It's just not the case. You can play fast and heavy while stile retaining a huge amount of technicality.

I think a musician should be able to respect and appreciate all types of music. I love death metal but i also like a lot of the others that have been mentioned in this thread as well, you got to love some Buddy Rich. With that being said there's a lot of the tech death metal drummers who are schooled musicians and can play a lot of other styles then the typical blast beat and double kick.

Here's a little jam with Derek Roddy and Marco Minnemann
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1thRCrBgoF0

I love Minnemann's groove, he's also played with a bunch of other great musicians his stuff with Paul Gilbert and Guthrie Govan is badass too

I've played the drums for 23 years or so and Chaman I'll agree I've never seen anything like Buddy Rich. Used to watch him on Carson decades ago. Shannon Larkin is good, I've seen him play with Wrathchild locally about 20 years ago however the drummers in Death can play circles around him. Gene Hoglan and Sean Reinart get much more coverage in Modern Drummer. Open your mind and you might learn something. It's cool that little kid can beat some skins in the street but he is not of the same caliber.

SIKE... but my influences sure are the most amazing. I swear, the drumming community has always been the worst when it comes to building each other up. Go to any drumming message board, you could post a drum solo by a world class player, and you'll still see hoards of armchair expert keyboard warriors trying to point out nonexistant flaws, saying it's not "musical", acting like they can do better, and still hating on Travis Barker like it's the cool thing to do. My influences range all over from Longineu Parsons, Lester Estelle, Thomas Pridgin, Dennis Chambers, Jojo Mayer, Stanton Moore, Jon Bonham, Morgan Rose...just to name a few. Then you got your crazy drum/machine sounding guys like Thomas Lang, Virgil Donati, and death metal guys, who I am absolutely awed by, but can't say they've influenced me much at all. I've been a single pedal guy for so long but eventually thinking about playing around with double.... or not... one thing is for sure, the double pedal is abused wayyy too much these days.

However, this kid Luke Holland deserves all the attention they get and more, homeboy's young and has legit skills.

Don't need to know music theory to see how everybody just about blows the dude whenever his name is mentioned. He is a good drummer....no doubt about that.

Is that a joke or are you serious? Spinal Architect songs have about 15 time signatures in each of them.

And besides that, when dudes who play drums for a living, write about drums for a living, and craft drums for a living vote someone drummer of the year like 15 times and make him the youngest inductee into the Drumming Hall of Fame, yeah he deserves it. If you understood any music theory you would look at his sheet music and understand.

I was messing with you. But really...IDGAF about Portnoys technical playing ability. It sounds like ass to me half the time when I hear a song he played in. You can keep your music theory to yourself and I'll continue listening to what I like and not have to break it down and theorize every note.
