Underappreciated monster drummers!

Who is the best (in your opinion) drummer out there that never gets the credit they deserve.

*Warning: death to anyone who says Neil Peart or Mike Portnoy. They're monsters, but they're anything but underappreciated!

The one that came to mind tonight is Thomas "Thomen" Stauch. I've long been a Blind Guardian fan, but until tonight I've really never paid that close attention to his drumming. That man is a machine, a veritable computer! He's inhuman! You gotta have something extra upstairs to be able to keep up with the strange rhythms that guy comes up with.

You know Stauch left BG last year, right? He joined up with the guitarist and singer from relatively unknown, but awesome, power metal band Persuader to form Savage Circus. SC plays music remeniscent of early-mid 90's BG. Traveller/Somewhere/Imaginations era BG. Pick up their debut "Dreamland Manor"

Anyway, here's the answer to the thread. These guys pretty much can't be beat. Each of them is Portnoy's equal, and probably surpasses him.

Flo Mounier - Cryptopsy. He mans the kit for Cryptopsy, the Canadian technical Death Metal band. He's insane. Seriously, listen to his drumming on the record "None So Vile." Absolutely perfect.

David Haley - Psycroptic. He plays technical DM also, but his style differs from Flo's in that he is the most creative drummer on earth when it comes to symbol use. His stuff is mind blowing.

Martin Lopez - Opeth. He used to play for Amon Amarth, where his uber-impressive chops won him a job with Opeth. All you need to do is listen to the song "Deliverance," at about the 10 minute mark. You'll hear this ludicrously tight, heavy and syncopated section that involves double bass blasts, odd timing and repetitions of five and such. This is while the band is playing a counter melody to it, mind you. So he's playing this difficult off-time thing, but listen even closer. You'll hear him banging on a cymbol, keeping the band in 4/4 time! This HAS to require a thrid arm. Seriously, listen to this passage! Until I saw him play it on a DVD, and live in Lawrence, I was convinced he was a 3 armed drumming freak. Martin Lopez only has two arms, ladies and gents.

Tomas Corn - Lykathea Aflame. No one knows about this Czech band, or their album "Elvenfris" which in 2000 practically invented a new style of Death Metal. I can't describe this album in words; same with his playing.

Hellhammer - Mayhem. Yes, that Mayhem. The crazy one with the church burnings and murder. Hellhammer is the only original member of the band not in jail or dead. He was the only sane one. And he had to have had a clear head to play with his speed and technicality.

Yeah, I heard that. I haven't heard Savage Circus yet, but I plan to look them up. I know they are playing Atlanta's ProgPower USA festival this year.

That's going to be a good show. Too bad Nevermore dropped off because of complications with the Disturbed tour they're booked on.

The best one, in my opinion, was two or three years ago when they Gamma Ray, Angra, Edguy and Blind Guardian all at the same festival! That one was like Wacken in the US! I regret that I wasn't able to get tickets for it, because they sold out just a couple days after they went on sale.

By "machine," of course, you mean "blow-up doll," right? However, there were some very good, underrated drummers in the hair metal genre. Bobby Blotzer from Ratt was quite good (actually that band had a number of seriously underrated musicians -- Juan Croucier, Warren DeMartini), and Freddy Curry from Cinderella ain't half bad. I've never been all that impressed with Alex Van Halen on their studio work (except maybe "Hot For Teacher," and the intro to "Everybody Wants Some"), but he quite impressed me live.
