            Actually it is! He (Tim Waterson) uses a Heel-Toe movement with one-piece footboards. I made the mistake of plunking down $59 for the Ballistic Bass Drums video which shows this technique. There was also an article in Drum magazine a few months back by Tim demonstating it. It does work, but others are right, it has no practical value except to show off.

              So you don't like Mike Portnoy's style? Interesting.

                not to say i don't like his style...he just rarley displays his own stye.he's more of a parrott.don't get me wrong i'd love to be able to copy,note for note(teadious to me)the grat drummers...but i'm always more impressed by the guy who wrote the intro for "the weapon" or "can't stand losing you" then the countless guys who can emulate it....peace ,love,and crashes

                  Bummer...it won't open for me. It says something about a bad path or not having permission to access. Have I been banned? Or is that band

                    - Not to get ****ing offensive, but are you guys serious? In death metal, the time is essentially kept with kicks. Getting that sort of speed is not really hard, but its rather indescribable to get.. you just get it... but it's really not hard to get, speed just takes time. In death metal, it is not showing off, it is the standard, and likewise, its practical applications are limitless. Death metal is an incredibaly advanced form of music, and throughout its pretty well recognized as being ****ing fast and challenging ass music, and without double kick its rythymic fury would have never taken off. It's understandable to be at first turned off by it if you're ears are more accustomed to soft, gentle consonance, but the extreme of that sort of music involves no drumming. The extreme of lightspeed, harsh dissonance is all about raging kicks. Like we don't think ultralight cymals and brushes have their uses? Like **** they don't, but not typically in our music. All instruments, played every way have their use. Your statement was foul.

                      ops i didnt knew that death metal was music.

                      thanx bro.....


                      btw portnoy plays prog metal which is not fast as the tempo of the doublebassing posted..... the problem with porntoy is that he have bad feel and sounds too repetitive. i just like him in images&words, he rules there!

                        Fast is good I guess but playing it time would help this double bass guy the most. Man his time sucks maybe he should buy a metronone. Timing and feel is the key to a good drum track not speed. Thats my 2 cents.

                          True. If anyone's interested, check out Nuclear Blasts Festival 2000 dvd. Though sometimes the sound and images aren't sync'd up, sometimes you do get to see the drummers do some cool things.

                            If you're serious, you're very unlearned. I don't blame people for thinking of death metal as noise, they simply haven't really heard it. I could reccomend to you the thousands of bands that display death metal's supremacy, but to keep it limited as **** (so you might actually check it out), go check out some Nile. Nile is one of the best representations of death metal at its finest. Email me at [email protected] and I can send you some mp3s. You're seriously missing something if you don't think death metal is musical.

                              that clip sounds horrible. Maybe its only application would be in death metal.


                              BTW Portnoy is the man. There probably isnt one guy on this board who could touch his ability.
