any opinions on him?
and also, on the video "Reality" by the berzerker, there is a clip of a drumstick going up and down. is this playing the "gaylords" blast? (mentioned in a different topic)
after watching the berzerker dvd, it seems that the drummer blasts normally, and the video for reality was made before they got this drummer (i think, i may be wrong) and just wondered if this was the gravity blast.
Cheers

thought i'd add this as i can't reply.........
i mean the actual "banned" video for reality. i've seen that rehersal video, and yeha he blasts normally. i mean the actual video they did for reality, it's hidden on the dvd, (can be found by pressing 7,enter,7,enter,5,enter,3,enter on the main menu) and it's also on the website.

based on what ive seen/heard...

the videos ive seen he blasts normally. he has a fast snare hand, his other hand doesnt seem to keep up that well tho. and his feet aren't fast. the video i saw of him playing (i think) reality, at rehearsal, he was just doing sustained rolls on the snare, no "gravity blasts".

i think he is a little overated considering all he does is a normal 2 foot blast with slower right hand a lot of the time. i've never heard him bass drum fast. the gabba bass drum sound he uses makes it sound more impressive - i dont like the sound, though it suits what they are doing.

to be fair, i've not seen any evidence of gravity blasts. on their last album it's clearly programmed / semi programmed / edited drums, as there's a blastbeat going on and cymbals being hit over the top constantly without any stop in the blastbeat. unless their drummer has 4 arms i don't see how anyone could believe it was real (then again that totally isn't the point of the berzerker so who cares really :D)

from what i've seen i have my doubts that their drummer could break the world hand speed singles record, as none of their material is that fast consistently and his right hand seems weaker than his snare hand. that might explain why their "fastest drummer" claim was never authenticated? who knows..
