NE-O occupies a niche in heavy music that ventures far into melodic beauty territory. Dan’s drum arrangement also has the same attention to the composition. About the track, Dan had this to say:
“I spent a lot of time writing drums for this track in particular, it’s a long crescendo build up to the 7/8 rhythmic riff, and it kind of takes off from there.”
Dan’s using the entire K series of Zildjian cymbals, and they compliment the track excellently. You can Dan’s gear list in the info section of the video.
