Peep this killer drum playthrough of “Elimination Process” by Andrew Minarik of Canadian metalheads Threat Signal, it is heavy as balls –
Threat Signal have had more member changes than I’ve had hot dinners, however this doesn’t seem to have slowed them down at all. “Elimination Process” is the opening track off the band’s new album Disconnect, and after an intro that lures you into a false sense of security, it comes straight out of the blocks swinging hard. Andrew, who was the studio drummer on the new album, shows that he is the man for the job after numerous drummers have left the throne cold.
Full marks to Andrew who manages to completely nail angry drummer face at regular intervals throughout the track. His playing technique is also on point as he manages to make a pretty complicated playthrough look very effortless and easy. He also looks like he is having – wait for it – a good time! A lot of the time drummers will do a playthrough video with a look on their face like their cat has just been run over, but not Andrew, he’s happy to be here and happy to be playing drums. So happy, in fact, he has ripped the shirt fully off his own back. I know it’s not metal to smile guys, but come on, lighten up!
There’s groove all over this bad boy and some extremely meaty vocals, I don’t know about you but I will be checking the rest of the album out. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think about them!
