  • TOOL - Chocolate Chip Trip - Live


    A MESSAGE TO THE YOUTUBE TEAM: The audio track is unique (not reused) and has been created by me, based on my own recordings and partially on bootleg recordings not available anywhere on Youtube.
    The video is a unique (not reused) cut of several bootleg videos that I have personally processed and put together (stabilization, color correction, synchronization).


    This is a unique mix of distant arena mics and close drum kit mics at one of the recent Fear Inoculum Tour dates (11/09/19 in Detroit).

    As always, all videos have been re-stabilized and re-cut to give you the best available angles. By no means this is an ideal recording, but it's decent enough to give you a glimpse of how mindblowing this tour is.

  • Danny Carey vs Mike Portnoy - Part 2


    Leave a comment for your favourite drummer, Mike or Danny?

    Your comments should reflect your personal opinion only. Everyone has the right to an opinion and this is a place you can express that.

    Please do not comment about the footage used. If you are not familiar with Danny Carry's work then please don't comment it goes with Mike Portnoy.
    It is very hard to find good clean official footage of Danny Carey playing.

    This is not a best of, or a show case of what either drummer can do. The other option is to have still photos playing to a song... very lame

    There is no bias from ratemydrums regarding either player. Both videos are of Danny and Mike playing with there respective bands, both have about the same time and both contain drummers playing to backing tracks and live footage.

    More drum battles coming soon!

    Share and be inspired

    The question a lot of you are asking is Is it right to compare two great artists?

    There are two ways of looking at it; the first way is drummer A vs. drummer B and asking who is best or who would win a competition?
    I believe this is wrong as neither drummer asked to be judged or entered into a competition. This is NOT what I am trying to do. I will say it again; this is not a competition and not what I am trying to do.

    The other way of looking at it is one of advanced appreciation. Let me explain what I mean. Take a drummer like Danny Carey; do you enjoy his music on its own without anything to compare it to? Yes, I do. Now take a drummer like Mike Portnoy, can you enjoy his music on its own without any comparison? Yes, I also do.

    But if I want to know how much I enjoy either piece or either drummer I need something to compare it against.

    Our first natural comparison is with ourselves. I like Danny Carey, and will pay money to see Danny because he is better than me. Fair statement? I don't see Danny Carey lining up to see my clinics.

    Why do most of us appreciate Danny's drummer more then say Larry Mullins Jr's drummer? Because it is further from where we are. A lot of us can play what Larry plays so we think of him as a good or great drummer, but with Danny being so far pasted us we often think of him as extremely superior or a master.

    To take an appreciation to a more advanced level you need to compare with another higher standard. There should only be a small variation between your personal appreciation of two players like Danny and Mike, or Vinnie or Buddy.

    Who you like might change from day to day and that's fine, today you might like Danny more, tomorrow you're in a mood for Mike

    How do you know what Tool song or Elton John song you like best? Compare it to another Tool or Elton song right?

    What I am doing is not wrong. I am exercising my rights to free speech and I am offering you an opportunity to join me and share your opinion. There are no winners or losers, only good comments and bad comments. And I can guarantee you that at some point you have made a judgment call on a drummer based on another drummer.

    If you don't like it -- Don't comment

    as compared to or as one of two choices; in contrast with: traveling by plane versus traveling by train. Abbreviation: v., vs

    Here we have one of the most unique kits ever to come through the doors at Drumazon! We are extremely proud to present the first ever VK Drums 7empest Aluminium Drum Kit complete with a Cast Bronze 7empest Snare Drum and optional Paiste Cymbals. VK Drums are well known for their incredible metal shell drums which are often offered with their iconic laser engravings, the 7empest is a masterclass in everything Alan Van Kleef and VK drums have come to stand for.
    To capture the details of this incredible set we have taken over 40 images and made a video to help give you a real feel for the enormity that is the 7EMPEST.

    From Monad the 7empest was born.

    During 2019 Alan Van Kleef was contacted and then commissioned by Danny Carey to create a drum kit and snare drum for him. Danny was recommended to speak to Alan via long time friend and VK snare owner John Tempesta. After many discussions Alan went about creating the Monad drum set for Danny. The 8 piece double bass drum kit was made from 2mm thick rolled and riveted Aircraft Grade Aluminum Shells. All the drums are fitted with Alan's 20mm VKast Aluminium hoops throughout. The accompanying Monad snare drum for the kit is a 5mm B12 Cast Bell Bronze shell which has matching bronze VKast hoops. Danny Carey's 7 sided logo is laser engraved on every drum and appears 7 times on each shell. Inside each bass drum is a 7 sided microphone mount designed to centrally hold the Heil PR48 bass drum microphone which is Danny's preferred bass drum microphone. Stainless steel extended tube lugs are fitted throughout the kit and finally the VK signature vent holes appear on every drum. Once completed Alan delivered the drum kit and snare drum personally to Danny at download festival back in June 2019.

    7empest Snare Drum

    Shortly after the Monad kit was completed, it was announced that a complete replica snare drum called The 7empest would be made available as part of a limited collection of 33 individual drums. The 7empest snare is identical to the Monad snare apart from one detail, the 7empest has Sigillum Dei Aemeth engravings instead of the 7 sided Danny Carey logo. The 7empest snare is a 14 x 8 VKast Bronze 5mm shell with matching VKast hoops. The snare also offers stainless steel extended tube lugs, engraved snare throw, butt, VKey and a set of 3 Sigillum Dei Aemeth laser marked enochian chimes. The limited package also comes with a certificate and white gloves.

    7empest Drum Kit

    Around the same time as the 7empest snare was announced we found out that Alan was also underway making the first ever 7empest Drum Set. Like the snare drum, the 7empest drum kit is a replica of the Monad set in every way with the one exception being the Sigillum Dei Aemeth laser engravings instead of the 7 sided logo. For the 7empest kit Alan decided to finish the shells in a stunning Black Powder coat whilst leaving the VKast hoops in their natural Aluminum colour which creates an incredibly striking look!

    Every detail even down to the sizes of this kit are exactly the same is the Monad set, the kit has Aluminium 2mm shells, the same 7 sided mic mounts and XLR plugs ready for Heil PR48 mics, 20mm VKast Hoops, Stainless Steel extended tube lugs and a 7empest 14 x 8 Cast Bronze Snare Drum. Finally every drum has a metal ID tag inside detailing drum size, shell material, date of manufacture (February 2020) and serial no. (7empest Kit No.001)

  • Vuoi suonare come DANNY CAREY dei Tool? 5 elementi che devi conoscere!


    Quello di oggi è uno dei batteristi, più richiesti nei commenti in questo canale.
    Quando si parla di Tool ci sono dei veri e propri fanatici di questa band, che ha creato con la sua musica una sorta di Religione. Vi dico subito che io non sono un fanatico e che anzi nemmeno mi piacevano! Quindi oggi avrete il parere da una persona che imparato ad amarli ascoltandoli e studiandoli!

    Vi voglio parlare del drumming di Danny Carey, incredibile batterista dei Tool e cercherò di spolparlo e capire i sui trucchi e il suo stile per tutti quelli che vogliono suonare come lui. Per fare questo esaminerò 5 suoi brani partendo dagli albori ed arrivando fino ad i suoi ultimi lavori. Qui mi viene facile perché i Tool hanno in effetti fatto uscire proprio 5 album di cui l’ultimo attesissimo, dopo 13 anni, Fear Inocoloum.

    Penso che il drumming di Danny Carey sia un batterismo molto pensato, pieno di accortezze si ma anche molto logico e pulito. Non irriproducibile!
    Inoltre è uno di quei batteristi di cui riconosci il suono anche in mezzo ad altri mille, che purtroppo oggi sono molto uniformati.
    Adesso vedo gli album dei Tool Come una miniera di lanci e groove super musicali , da cui poter attingere!

    In questo video analizzerò brevemente molti groove e fill, tra cui:
    Sober, Stinkfist, Pushit, Eulogy, Jambi, The Grudge, Pneuma.
    Per poter estrapolare 5 elementi del drumming di Danny Carey che dei assolutamente conoscere!
