Megadeth drummer Dirk Verbeuren wrote and recorded a completely original song only on the drums using Toontrack’s Superior Drummer 3, and we invited you to record your own song over it to enter our annual Drumception contest.
Dirk himself has painstakingly sorted through all the entries, and here are the winners! THANK YOU to everyone who entered, and we look forward to doing this again next year.
Dirk had such a hard time choosing from all the amazing entries we got that he wanted to name several honorable mentions as well. Here were some of his favorites that didn’t quite make the cut:
Dale Gilmore (“Riffs & Soul”):
We invited some well-known guitarists from the metal world to record their own versions of Dirk’s track as well, ineligible for the contest but still fun to listen to:
Brandon Ellis (The Black Dahlia Murder):
Reba Meyers (Code Orange):
Will Putney (Fit For An Autopsy):
Alex Skolnick (Testament):
Brendon Small (Galaktikon/Dethklok):
