Nothing this dude does is impressive.

I think this is very cool. He needs to cannonball into the whole metal/hardcore scene and take out all the poseur drummers. Playing a blast beat doesn't mean you're good at the drums, f a g g o t s.

This jerk is truly one of the most overrated drummers in the history of popular music. So self important that this shit bag actually refers to himself in the third person. I'm sure these drum tracks are the most "importnoy" of his stupid career. Dudes who work in the drum department at Guitar Center and wear 1,000 buttons and name tags are fckING STOKED!
