We look at the evolution of blast beats in punk, metal and grindcore drumming! From the early history (DRI, Beastie Boys, Tony Williams, NYC Mayhem) to the Earache Records era of Napalm Death, Terrorizer and Morbid Angel, the 90s death metal bands like Origin and Cryptopsy, and the modern era of extreme metal drummers like Slipknot, Nile, Infant Annihilator who took blast beats to the next level. And drummers like George Kollias and techniques like the gravity blast.

  1. You added Slipknot to the list of these bands! Slipknot does have blast beats but not like Napalm Death or Suffocation or Devourment! Theres more blast beats then ever! The Underground Grind bands are bigger then ever!

  2. I always liked "air" between the notes. For me, "Digital Bath" from Deftones starts off with one of the hardest beats. It's that air between the hits that gets me. I would rather that then, "pop, pop, pop, pop, pop" and 6000 bpm.

  3. Itโ€™s interesting that you mentioned DRIโ€™s part in the creation of blast beats. Back in 1985 I was briefly the bass player for DEATH. And our drummer was Eric Brecht, the original drummer of DRI. If you check out our Death demo โ€˜Back From The Deadโ€™, or a live recording of us at Ruthieโ€™s Inn from 1985 you can hear Eric using blast beats constantly. Between those two bands I think a legitimate argument can be made for Eric Brecht being one of the earliest blast beat drummers. Although, as you pointed out, the Beastie Boyโ€™s drummer Kate Schellenbach beat DRI to the recording studio by about four months.

  4. Great video. Maybe I can add Sepultura, especially the Arise album – there are what I call "Helicopter" beats as they sounded like helicopter passing when blasted loud.

  5. Man ….the first time I heard mick Harris on scum and then Pete Sandoval on terrorizer world downfall changed everything……dead shall rise is still one if my favourite ever songs from terrorizer

  6. Before I even watch this vid the answer is Pete from Morbid Angel, yeah there where some others a few years earlier But Alters of Madness is on the Mount Rushmore for a blast beat album.. Fuckin Immortal Rites, Maze of Torment, Chapel of Ghouls .. Scott Burns Death Metal tuned drum room at Morrisound..Come On!! My Fav contemporary has to be Shawn from Carnifex, I've never seen anyone else do stick finger rolls as he's blasting the snare & double bass, it's wild to watch ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I think Cold Hate Warm Blood by Crytopsy before triggers and a much younger Flo Mounier is maybe their most special song. I still had the yellow Sony Walkman and had to rewind that song over and over. Much โค๏ธ.
