Somebody remembers Leonard Haze ! ! !

Mix his fast-azz single bass strokes with Bonham's bounce & you've got some sweet single bass drummin' ! ! !

Sean Reinert - Cynic, Death, Aghora
Tomas Haake - Meshuggah
Martin Lopez - Opeth

Danny Carey - Tool
Gene Hoglan - Death
Anders Nodin - Early Opeth
Lars Ulrich - Metallica - ok ok ... In my opinion he's fully redeemed from his great effort on 'Call of Ktulu', and if he could acutally do it : 'Dyer's Eve'.
Dave Lombardo - Fantomas, Slayer

My top 3 would have to be the top three I've written, Carey is probably my favourite drummer of all time, but Tool is heavy, but not as straight ahead metal as the others (mind you I consider most of them Progressive Metal anyway...).

i like the pantera drummer, and mike portnoy a lot, he has amazing chops, and just to mention, i do like lars ulrich most of the time.

he seems to mess things up, then redeem himself. i mean, his tempo live is a roller coaster (listen to the count-ins on the S&M CD) yet his studio drumming is great. i mean, if you listen to St-Anger (and dont write it off right away, as its actually a good CD) there is good drumming, and the double-bass in the song St-Anger is simply fast.

just my view on his drumming.

Vinnie Paul, Lars Ullrich, Portnoy, the Appice boys. My fav overall (not metal) is Charlie Watts. That guy is a fricken rock.

I've been digging the band Alter Bridge and their drummer Scott Philips definitely brings the heat. Those guys know how to rock.
