There are so many out there but a few stick out in my mind.

Hoglan
Richard Christy
Lombardo

Benante
Sandoval
Zonder

I'll also add that Nick Barker is also amazing in that particular genre.

Nobody forgot anything.   The folks that rank Hoglan up there mentioned him.  The rest of us didnt.   Nothing forgotten.

Adrian Erlandsson - The most melodic extreme drummer

Dave Lombardo - Can anybody dispute 'The Daddy'?

Thomas Lejon - Prog metal master.

Dirk Bruinenberg - Chops galore.

Mike Portnoy - His drum sound is the best I've ever heard and his playing is just jaw dropping, my personal favourite.

I'm not a huge metal fan but the guy from Disturbed plays very smart. The first tune on the second album he does a very interesting rhythmic illusion by playing all his down beat on the 'e' of each beat while playin a slightly syncopated bass drum line....really cool groove.

Kenny "Rhino" Earl...did an album with the group "Manowar" in the early 90s. Some of the most solid, powerful, and fastest playing I've heard (his double bass will knock your socks off, and he played two HUGE bass drums, 26 or 28"). Here's a link to a clip of a drum solo off that album:

http://www.angelfire.com/wi3/drums/Achilles_Drums.wav

disclaimer: It's not really in time like a lot of drum solos (Scott Travis for example) because it's part of a 28 minute song based on the trojan war in ancient greek history. The drum solo is supposed to be the god of fire hammering out some magical armor for achilles or something, so a syncopated funk groove wouldn't really jive here. I have heard some of his other stuff though, and he's definitely got groove.

Vinnie Paul: to me this guy is absolutely awesome. Perhaps the ultimate metal guy.

Scott Travis: like Vinnie, rock solid, has a touch few can match and tons of power. I guess he's not as creative in his parts as he could be though.

Nicko McBrain: I really really like his style. Way too much of an influence in me actually. The guy to me revolutionized Maiden's style and does some pretty neat things than distance him from the rest of the NWOBHM drummers.

Igor Cavalera: very creative, added power and touch to thrash drumming.

Honorable mentions to Cozy Powell, Bobby Rondinelli and more.

And I've got to defend Lars a bit. His records show a solid drummer. He's been way overrated, and way underrated too. He did some good stuff with Metallica, and good god I'de wish to sound like he does on the Black Album.

I'm not mentioning Paice, Van Halen or Bonham as I think they don't play metal. They're tremendous of course.
It's still Rock'n'Roll to me.

I have heard some of his other stuff though, and he's definitely got groove.

At some point in his Manowar stint he was given Scott Colombus' stainless steel kit (by Scott himself). After this (I kid you not) he burned his old set. This is all actually on tape, I've heard it was very ceremonious.
Anyways, I believe that set had 26" kicks. Perhaps 24" but I thought they were larger

And that was the useless fact of the day  :P

Hey all,

 Dave Lombardo-Slayer
 Scott Rockenfield-QueensRyche
 Tommy Lee-Motley Crue
 Lars Ulrich

 I have been a Lars fan for going on twenty years and no matter how many people "bash" him (bad pun) he is STILL the one drummer who got me into metal/hard rock in the first place and my opinion of him has not changed and never will. Sorry to go on like that. :)
