MetalSucks.net have put together their Top 25 Modern Metal Drummers and the top 10 in the list consists of GOJIRA‘s Mario Duplaniet, MASTODON‘s Brann Dailor and LAMB OF GOD‘s Chris Adler – check out the top 10 below:
#1: SCOTT HULL (AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED)
#2: MARIO DUPLANTIER (GOJIRA):
It can’t be easy being the drummer of one of the heaviest, best and critically acclaimed metal bands on Planet Earth. Especially not when your brother is the frontman and guitarist, two roles that usually attract more attention from the masses than drummers do. But perhaps there’s nothing like a good old fashioned case of sibling rivalry to motivate a fire under one’s ass; not only has Mario Duplantier managed to make his presence in the band felt in an incredibly tangible way, but he’s become a bonafide standout superstar within Gojira’s ranks and he’s absolutely, without question, one of the greatest drummers in modern metal. #3: Danny Walker (Intronaut, Exhumed, Jesu, etc)
#4: BRANN DAILOR (MASTODON):
From around the twenty-five second mark in “March of the Fire Ants” (off of 2002′s Remission), it becomes very clear that we are dealing with a different approach to drum chops.
