The Trooper (Iron Maiden) - Nicko McBrain
Valhalla Awaits (Amon Amarth) - Fredrik Andersson
Laid To Rest (Lamb of God) - Chris Adler

All are pretty fast and I do practice slower stuff like Led Zeppelin, but I love playing metal.

1. Invaders Of The Heart - Cheap Trick
2. Lipstick Vogue - Elvis Costello
3. It's Late - Queen
4. Take Five - Dave Brubeck
5. Hound Dog - Elvis Presley

Yeah, all of the Mike Protnoys of the world are technically gifted but totally bereft of any soul whatsoever (they seem to drum to me like jocks least from what women have told me). I'll take an Alan Gratzer over those guys any day.

I love drumming to way to many songs to pull 5 out but Pull Harder on the Strings of Your Martyr by Trivium is without a doubt my favourite. However i love drumming to any trivium song. it really puts me in the mood and dypes me up. Lamb of God is also fun to drum to.
