Bless the folks at Drumeo, and drum media culture in general: is there any other discipline that literally supports every single kind of underground music without judgment? Just a few weeks ago they had on Scale the Summit drummer J.C. Bryant, and this week they’ve got a mini-lesson from Revocation’s new drummer/absolute monster Ash Pearson.

And after hearing Great is Our Sin and watching this, those are becoming more clear.
