Sick Drummer Magazine - Top 25 Drumming Albums of 2013
Thursday, 30 January 2014 17:18

Our team has gone back and forth over a few different lists and have decided on these 25 records. They are not in any particular order of most to least favorite, but simply in a list. We do not like to say one is better than another, but feel these 25 performances were the best of what there was to choose from last year. Sure, there were other great records! We can't list them all, but these just happened to be our favorites. 
Thanks to all the amazing drummers for giving us such great works to enjoy and share.

Blake Richardson of Between The Buried and Me - Drum Solo - NAMM 2014 TAMA 40th Anniversary Party
Wednesday, 29 January 2014 20:30
This footage of Blake Richardson of Between The Buried and Me, was taken during the TAMA Drums 40th Anniversary Party, which was attended by the entire Hoshino family. Players included: Billy Cobham, Lenny White, Charlie Benante, Spanky McCurdy, Simon Phillips, and Mike Portnoy, all with insanely talented bands playing with them.
The evening started off with a video history of the brand from the early 1970's, leading up to today. The room was amazing, equipt with ultra-huge LCD display screens on either side of the stage and the sound was immense. We would like to thank Aaron Vishria for making sure Sick Drummer Magazine had VIP access for covering this stellar evening of drumming. 
Each group played for about ten minutes and there were video appearances in between from some who could not attend. Stewart Copeland of The Police was even on scene for a quick speech, and was his usual entertaining self. Closing the event was a five-kit drum circle that featured Rayford Griffin, John Blackwell, Billy Rymer, Blake and Ronald Bruner Jr.
Between The Buried and Me is gearing up for a February/March 2014 Tour with Intronaut, Deafheaven and The Kindred. Tour dates and other information can be found on their facebook page here:
Winter NAMM 2014 took place in Anaheim, California, January 23rd - 26th and was one of the best shows we have experienced in recent years.

Jason Bittner - Derek Roddy - Gus Rios - Jeff Hanneman Tribute - NAMM 2014 GoPro Booth
Wednesday, 29 January 2014 17:37
This video tribute to Jeff Hanneman was something Anton was able to put together after meeting with the GoPro Camera staff and seeing their booth on the first day of the show. We had a great time meeting and talking with them and would again like to thank them for their cooperation.

Here you will see Jason Bittner (Shadows Fall, Burning Human) on drums, Derek Roddy (Serpent's Rise, ex: Hate Eternal, ex: Malevolent Creation) on guitar and Gus Rios (Malevolent Creation, Upon Infliction) on guitar as well. The guys literally heard our idea and talked about what to play on the way over to the booth. No practice, no adjusting the gear, just sitting down and jamming out 'Angel of Death' by Slayer. The sound inside the booth was absolutely amazing, raw, filthy and heavy. Thanks to the guys for meeting up with SDM for this unique, and very fun experience.
Jut so happens that Gus and I were both wearing a Hanneman tribute shirt on the same day, which has come to be bittersweet, after now knowing there was no mention of Jeff Hanneman during the Grammy Awards in their "In Memoriam" segment. This video goes out to the memory of Jeff, and to all his family and friends.
Keep up with the guys here:
