There are times I wish I was Mike Mangini or Charlie Benante. But I'm not. Nevertheless, despite being so far out of my regular playing zone, I just couldn't resist a go at this phenomenal template from the prolific Cody! It was a challenge to say the least! Overall, the track reminds me of a Tony MacAlpine album I used to listen to.

I had to mark out the sections in Reaper then I recorded other loops first so I was properly warmed up. I had one run-through before recording. Then went nuts. I've no idea how these proper metal drummers can keep this stuff up for two hours.

There was no way I was going to manage more than a couple of attempts before my arms went on strike! It did take one punch-in and then a few corrective edits at mix-down to tidy up the worst bits.

Thank you Cody for sending me waaaaay out of my comfort zone. This was awesome fun to record - I've not enjoyed myself so much in ages.


No reverb on HD drum

a drummer i can suggest you to take a look in metal (if you didnt took already), in Nicko Macbrain, he is the best!

Bizarrely, I have actually met Nicko (I used to write for a drumming magazine in the UK). He is a great rock drummer who always plays with enormous power and plays the right thing.

He's also very, very funny!

Thanks, Kenny! You know how much I love Dream Theater, etc., but to be able to play like those guys is another story entirely!

DannyKDannyK You should let it rip more often! This is fantastic!

Thank you, Danny! It's a funny style for me. I do have a rough idea of what to play. It's just getting, in particular, my feet to be able to do it! Hence all the mad tom stuff - it makes up for the fact I can't do it with my double pedal which is how the proper thrash guys would do it! :)
