Personally i think that Fredrik Andersson from Amon Amarth is the best overall. some of his best songs areValhal Awaits Me, Twilight Of The Thunder Gods or Cry Of The Blackbirds. but the others Like Joey or Michael Thomas and dirk are really good as well. if you think that another drummer is better than the others here then please add them.

Wait one bloody second- 12 people actually think that Lars is the best metal drummer? Furthermore, 12 people think that Lars is better then the almighty Flo Mournier? Lars is fucking sub-par, he's just in a famous band... Oh and also fucking John Longstreth of Origin. Antithesis has inhuman drumming.

Where's Dave Lombardo, Igor Cavalera, Paul Bostaph, Richard Christy, Gene Hoglan, etc.... Lars is one of the choices? And what the fuck is a Bullet for my Valentine?

Testament? He just was in 1997 with the album "Demonic" (one of the worst), nothing more. I would said better: Death and Strapping Young Lad, and now Fear Factory!! yeah =)

I'm gonna go with Gene Hoglan. Rob Reiner of Anvil, Brann Dailor, Mickey Dee, Tomas Haake of Meshuggah, Mike Magini, Hellhammer, Rick Allen of Def Leppard, Neil Peart, Joey Jordison, and I really like Reidar "Horgh" Horghagen's work with Immortal.

It'll have to be Neil Peart for me.

Sure, Rush isn't generally considered "metal" now, but they have a lot of work that could classify as metal.

even hough I find Slipknot to be cap Joey Jordison is a great overall drummer and one of the best around. It is not without reason he drummed for Slayer, Metallica and Satyricon a couple of times live as substitute.

Oh but i am not denying his skills. I even love Slipknot, it's just I don't see why put him in this list. Kinda like that drummer from BFMV.

Why shouldn't he be on the list though? I can't think of any legitimate reason why he shouldn't be...

Anyone with a shred of clue about drumming will know that Joey Jordison is a great drummer. You've probably never heard more than one song by SLipknot. Or you have no clue about what drumming is.

Also, that poll list in the first post is ridiculous. More than a half of these drummers have never been in the vicinity of great. Dirk Verbeuren, Lars Ulrich, Fredrik Andersson, Michael Thomas, John Boecklin. Seriously? Those are here and Dave Lombardo isn't?

By the way, Lars Ulrich is the one drummer who has become worse and worse over the years. His drumming on And Justice for All was excellent. Now compare it to his drumming on Death Magnetic... Or watch a live version of Dyers' Eve recorded in the recent years. Where's double bass??? Pathetic...

Look at the drumset..

Most metal drum I can feel its good is metallica master of puppet album, most song drums so good especially song disposable heroes, you even can feel drum music in..

I can see how impressiom it is when looking joey jordison drum set, very gigantic.

Lars performing good show with drum both visionally, and skillfully.

But yeah the jordison drum set is so hugeee...
