Top 10 best drummers

6. srpna 2017 v 15:54 | lmetalgirl |  Hudba
Everyone knows that the insane black metal tempos aren´t made for ordinary drummers. I know one really weak drummer: he has problems with drumming on 120 bpm (beats per minute). Now imagine 180, 195, 200 bpm tempos
(sometimes even more) which are often used in black metal. I´ve chosen the best of the best. The black metal drummers. It´s just my opinion. You don´t have to agree with that. As you can see, they´re not in a special order, because I think they all have similar drumming skills.

Kai Johnny Mosaker aka Trym Torson (ex-Emperor)

Age: 43
I don´t like him much, but I have to admit he´s good.

Gylve "Fenriz" Nagell (Darkthrone)

Age: 45
His drumming skills are amazing. Although he CAN play live, he doesn´t want to. What a pity.

Ivo "Namtar" Wijers (Carach Angren)

Age: 31
Playing in a symphonic black metal band doesn´t mean just blast beats, but some artistic decorations in the rhytm. Namtar can do this. He draws the melody by drumming.

Jan Axel "Hellhammer" Blomberg (Mayhem)

Age: 48
When he had become the drummer of Mayhem, the other members were surprised what a drum machine he was. He still is in spite of his age. Maybe he´s not the best, but he´s got unique style of drumming.

Einar "Kvitrafn" Selvik (ex-Gorgoroth)

Age: 37/38

Just the thing he was a member of Gorgoroth means he´s a good drummer. He´s not now really active on black metal scene, he´s working on his folk project Wardruna: it was used as soundtrack of a TV show Vikings.

Elefterios "Phobos" Santorinios (ex-Gorgoroth)

Age: 30
Another ex-drummer of Gorgoroth. What´s the difference between him and Kvitrafn? He doesn´t look so exhausted. When I saw the video of Kala Brahman, he was just giving looks like: "This is too easy. I´m soooo bored."

Fredrik Widigs (Marduk)

Age: 29
The youngest drummer on this list is drum machine himself. Marduk has always been a band with fast songs. That doesn´t mean just couple of blast beats and that´s the end of the song (that´s grindcore). The sound of Marduk should evoke machine guns, so drumming at the same speed for 5 minutes is quite difficult. Now imagine doing this for the full (1 hour long) gig. Respect.

Lars Thomas Ulf Broddesson (ex-Marduk)

Age: 35
I could put on this list every Marduk drummer (Af Gravf, Frederik Andersson, Emil Dragutinovic), but it wouldn´t be top 10 Smějící I decided to tell you something about Lars. I think he had some problems with spine, so he couldn´t continue with Marduk. However, he did a good work.

Nils "Dominator" Fjellström (Dark Funeral)

Age: 36
He looks like he´s from a video game. Not by his image, but his drumming style. At first when I saw the video of him playing, I thought he would die of exhaustion in a few seconds. No, he did something totally different. He started drumming much faster. He just can´t be a human Smějící se. Especially when he drums in armor. If I should put the drummers on this list in order, he would be probably on the 1st or 2nd place.

Kjetil-Vidar "Frost" Haraldstad (Satyricon)

Age: 44
Many people think he´s the best. Maybe he really is. But there are some really good drummers like Dominator or Lars. Frost is a living proof that he can play not one gig, but even two in a day. He did it great on Brutal Assault 2016 where he played for Satyricon and 1349. Big respect for him!
