Who are the greatest metal drummers

As for my faves:

Igor Cavalera - Sepultura
Joey Jordison - Slipknot
Jesse Smith - Zao
Jason Roeder - Neurosis
Tomas Haake - Meshuggah
Paul Bostaph - Slayer (sorry Dave, you rock, but I just dig Paul better)

Sure Im 31, and cut my teeth on Maiden and the like, but early on Napalm Death and Bolt Thower turned me to more extreme stuff.   And its suited me much better.

Alex VanHalen is Metal? ???  I would think he'd be more of a Power Rock or Hard Rock drummer.

Yeah i agree with Dunbar and Castronovo but i really think Appice is a poor 'live' drummer but hes o.k in the studio.

Danny Cary of Tool
Vinnie Paul of Pantera- I heard that he was trained at Berklee, but I think it's BS. If anybody knows, pleas tell me.

Least Favorite: Whiney little Lars Ulrich. Even before the band became a group of grumpy old men, I just thought his playing was like banging on pots and pans. One volume all the time.

The Black Album has around 1400 drum edits.  
I saw Lars live once, his time sucks- all over the place.  You'd think after a couple of thousanbd gigs, he'd be pretty good....
