Phil Dubois - Revocation - The Blackest Reaches - Exclusive SDM Play-Through
Monday, 27 October 2014 16:09

A few words from Phil: "I was really excited to start tracking "Deathless", because aside from the huge amount of time I spent preparing for the record, this was the first time I got to record using my brand new custom Pearl Reference kit. I stuck with my usual 10", 12", 14", 16" tom sizes, but I had each one made an inch shallower, and I was blown away by how punchy they sound!"

"My secret weapon was my new 14" x 6.5" brass reference snare. Words cannot describe how good that things sounds. It's by far the nicest piece of gear I've ever owned. I was adamant about getting an organic drum sound for 'Deathless' which Zeuss was totally into as well, and aside from the kick drum being sound-replaced, everything else is completely natural. It's by far the best drum sound I've ever gotten on a record and I couldn't be happier with it!

Phil's Other Gear: Meinl cymbals (from left to right) 17" Byzance crash, 17" Mb20 crash, 14" Mb10 hi hats, 10" Sound caster custom splash, 12" Byzance splash, 14" Classics custom extreme metal hi-hats, 18" Mb20 crash, 20" Mb20 heavy bell ride, 18" Classics custom extreme metal china, Axis pedals, Evans drum heads, and Vic Firth Sticks.

Daniel Koppy - Reaping Asmodeia - Cannibal Corpse Drum Cover + Upcoming Tour Dates
Monday, 20 October 2014 16:50

From Daniel: "A couple things I would like to share about this video... I decided to only have in front of me a very minimal set up for this track. There is not one single tom hit in this song, fill or riff-wise, so I figured there was no point to have them in the tracking/filming. Also, I played all the thrash beat riffing in a straight noting-type feel, as opposed to the way Paul Mazurkiewicz of Caninibal Corpse plays. He does a very unique/strange approach to his thrash beats, where his lead hand is playing in a triplet feel. Almost making it a sort of strange polyrhythm type feel to all of his thrash beats. It was a bit more of a challenge doing the straight noting, so why not right!?! Hope you enjoy and please check out all my other videos, especially from my band Reaping Asmodeia. Also, we wanted the drums to have a very real, yet punchy and natural sound. Thus, no sound replacement was used on the audio."
