I think it works great. It fits the style to me. But then again, the vocals usually mean the least to me when it comes to the music. I am also aware there are not many people like me.




And on that note in 50 minutes, That Drummer Guy LIVE! is on InfernalRockRadio. I am showing off my interview with RED FANG Drummer John Sherman, and 4 hours of the best Metal and Rock you will hear on the radio!

Thanks man. That is the thing about doing something like I do, unless people comment, I don't know who is checking it out. I mean I do get ratings from the stations it's on, and I see hit counts from Podomatic and now Spreaker, but It never shows where people are tuning in from or who or anything, so comments is the only thing I got going for me until the show gets picked up in more places.

I'm glad you tune in. :rocker:

The new Panopticon is stellar! the song I played this week is easily their best song to date.

Week 89

Listening to this one now. Gonna type my thoughts as I get to the songs.

KXM- Gunfight - Decent tune but not quite heavy enough for me
Prong- Remove, Separate Self - Didn't really dig this
Eluveitie- Vianna - This was really cool. I've never listened to these guys, and I honestly probably wouldn't listen to it very often, but it's nice to hear stuff like this once in a while.
Alestorm- Wooden Leg! - Not my favourite song from the album, but the whole album is a masterpiece
Unisonic- Exceptional - One of the best songs off a very disappointing record. Kiske's vocals are sooooo good though.
Noveria- Fallen from Grace - Singer is pretty good. Wasn't really digging the music though. The guitars sound a bit too downtuned for this style. Gets more interesting once the leads come in.

In between these songs, you mention that Unisonic features members and ex-members of Helloween, but it's only ex-members :P

Goatwhore- Unravelling Paradise - Never listened to these guys before, but my brother is a fan. The guitars are way too quiet when there is blasting. The more death metal style vocals are well done. Definitely decent, but not really my style of extreme metal.

That's as much as I have time for at the moment, but I will most definitely come back to listen to more of this week because I want to hear Entombed A.D., Pathology, Vader, and Derdian.

Thanks for checking it out so far.

Yeah about Unisonic, I love Exceptional because of his vocals. I remember you were saying before how disappointed you were in the album. I like the songs I've heard, just wish there was more variety in the BPM. there is a lot of mid-tempo songs.

And my girlfriend gave me a ton of shit when I got that wrong about Unisonic. Not sure why I thought Kiske was still in Helloween, that doesn't even make sense :lol:. She loves Power Metal to death so anytime I get something wrong, she holds it against me for a long time. :lol:

Again, thanks for checking it out! :rocker:

Yeah Kiske is pretty much a god to me. Everything he touches becomes 100x better because of his involvement.

The problem with the new album is that most of the songs are either ballads, or slow boring songs without riffs. Even "Exceptional" fits the mold of their weaker stuff, but it's much better written than most of the other songs on the album.

Haha. No worries, I kinda get when you're doing things live that can happen. I remember in my only live interview to date I was a mess of "ums" and "uhs".

Again, thanks for checking it out! :rocker:
NP. Round 2 begins now, though I definitely won't get through too many songs before I have to head out.

Interview With Goatwhore's Zach Simmons - I think I skipped part of this in finding my old spot, but cool interview.
Goatwhore- FBS - This is way thrashier, and thus, way better than the other Goatwhore track. I could listen to this for sure.
Entombed A.D.- Pandemic Rage - The death 'n' roll is strong in this track. I've only heard Left Hand Path, and this is certainly a far cry from it, but it's not bad.
Pathology- Relics Past - This is one crazy breakdown to start the song. I have 3 Pathology albums and have never heard that strange of a breakdown, Sounds like the standard Pathology otherwise. I was worried they'd really lose it given how terrible the album name is, but this is pretty much identical to everything I own by them. I'll probably skip getting this record. And as soon as I say that, an AWESOME guitar solo shows up. With melody and everything. I might need to buy this now.
Vader- Where Angels Weep - If there is one old-school death metal band I've never gotten into, it would be Vader. With that said, this track is really cool. Lots of thrash influence here.

I'm gonna just start listening to these without commenting on every song though :lol:

I actually dig that you're doing that. It shows that someone is really paying attention to the show more then just saying "Hey, great job!" Or "I didn't actually listen, but cool I guess."

I've gotten better over the years with umms and uhhs in my interviews. Interviewing most of my heroes has helped with that. Although when I do it a lot now a days, you can tell I am nervous as hell. :lol:

Midnight- Degradation Love both Midnight and this song. Great pick to get it started.
Vallenfyre- Bereft There were some cool ideas in here but I wasn't really digging it.
Alfar- Across the Northern Storms I don't really listen to a lot of this, but this song was really cool. I would probably buy something of theirs if it were more widely available. The guitar solo was definitely the highlight.
MindShade- Fire Demon The breakdown in this song is really bad. Otherwise not a terrible song, but I didn't like the vocals.
Interview With Fallujah Frontman Alex Hofmann (Part 1) Skipped this because I'm not really a fan. Going to listen to the song though.
Fallujah- Carved from Stone Seems like pretty decent tech-death. Nothing special, but certainly listenable.
Transatlantic- Black as the Sky Way too out there for me. Vocals weren't my thing either.
Judas Priest- Dragonaut Was really interested to hear this as I didn't check out the new album. Sounds great to me. Just what Priest should sound like, and I say that as someone who isn't a huge Priest fan.
Yob- Nothing To Win Music was good, but I didn't like the vocals.
Grailknights- Holding out for a Hero Didn't like the intro, but totally awesome aside from that.
Lethian Dreams- Shades This was pretty decent. Not a lot of substance, but some great atmosphere. Big change at the end, which I think adds a lot to the track.
Marty Friedman- Sociopaths (feat. David Davidson) Everything I've heard of Friedman's solo work prior to this was disappointing. This was really different from what I expected, but I still didn't really like it that much. Lots of good turns, but some bad ones as well.
Dawn Of Destiny- Rising Angel Loved this other than the harsh vocals which felt forced. Great song nonetheless.
I will probably check out the rest later, as I want to hear that Skid Row track.

I love that you are actually checking out the show. It feels likes it is giving my showsome more legitimacy. Good or bad, I love feedback.

This week is a bit more of an experiment as my girlfriend and I have been having big discussions and actually a couple "business meetings" about what to do to make the show bigger and better. One suggestion that she made was about putting songs in a random order, or at least putting a couple songs that sound cool together, more than trying to do the stream of consciousness/roller coaster playlist that I've been doing since pretty much the start of my career. She does raise a good point about how not everyone can take 2 hours out of their day to listen to a show when it is on FM or streaming on the radio stations it airs on (Obviously with Podomatic and Spreaker, you can skip what you don't like) so I may be turning people off at first if they don't like Hard Rock/Power Metal/Prog Metal like I usually do at the beginning of the show, and the start of hour two is usually Death Metal, Black Metal, Doom Metal, etc. So it's good to mix it up the playlist to show off everything at different times and possibly keep people more interested.

Also the idea of splitting up the interviews if they go longer than a certain length. The Fallujah interview was 13 minutes so I tried finding a good point that felt natural to split the interview. I am normally the kind of guy who wants to hear an interview all the way through in one sitting, but I'm realizing that others find it a bit tedious to listen to if they aren't into the band, or if the interview is too long.

*Again, another reason why I love good and bad feedback. It tells me what is good and what can be improved*

There's other ideas that we have that I will be trying down the road, but I wanna do it one step at a time.

I think you may dig the new Skid Row, as someone not big into the Bach-less era of Skid Row, i dig the song a lot. I also mention in the show that I was one of the few hundred people who got to see this song live for the first time. it was right before the played the Rock USA show (or whatever that Oshkosh, WI fest is called) and the show I went to (in a town of 1,051 mind you) as a test audience. It sounded really good live and on record.

I would agree. Even as a guy sitting at my computer, I can find it hard to find 2 hours sometimes. I definitely like the idea of mixing it up more. With that said, I've only heard less than 2 full shows, but it sounds like a good idea.

Also the idea of splitting up the interviews if they go longer than a certain length. The Fallujah interview was 13 minutes so I tried finding a good point that felt natural to split the interview. I am normally the kind of guy who wants to hear an interview all the way through in one sitting, but I'm realizing that others find it a bit tedious to listen to if they aren't into the band, or if the interview is too long.

I agree with splitting it up, especially if you aren't listening to it the way I was where you can skip what you want.

Awesome! I'm actually one of those guys that doesn't have much interest in hearing new Skid Row. They're great because of the songs Sebastian made with them, and that's why I'm going to see them. Still, I'd like to check it out only because I know they'll be playing new material.

Edit: Ok I shouldn't have said anything about Skid Row, that song was awesome. The vocals obviously aren't Bach level, but still pretty solid. I thought they were supposed to be bad after the second album?

I'm in no way, shape or form trying to drive people away from here, but I decided to start my own forum on my website.

As many of my Facebook friends know, My whole internet life has been lived on forums and social media, so it's about damn time I started my own forum. This place covers EVERYTHING That Drummer Guy, Music, Entertainment, and anything YOU wanna talk about. The only main rule I have is no p0rn, anything else is fair game.

Again, I'm not looking to drive people away from here, but rather just another place to talk about stuff in a different environment. I don't plan on leaving here anytime soon.

It's time for a bit of an update about That Drummer Guy

As some may remember it was around this time last year that I got sick and put out of commission 7 months and slowly but surely, been recovering. I'm still not at 100%, days like today, I've actually been feeling ridiculously crappy from stomach issues (I won't go into detail, but use context clues to figure out whats going on).

Anyone who knows me knows that I am without a shadow of a doubt my worst critic. No one criticizes me or puts more pressure on myself, than myself. With all the stress I constantly put on myself, and being busy 24/7 this time last year, I got sick. But since March/April I have been slowly getting better and getting back on my feet. As of right now I am at least able to practice with my bands and do all the various tasks for being That Drummer Guy.

But that said, I have been a bit of a glutton for punishment. I have been getting to the point in the last few weeks where I have been overworking myself again and it is causing a lot of stress to my body again. yes, it is partly because I am creating it for myself to try to make the radio shows, reviews, interviews, website, and my bands to be the best they can be. And a couple weeks back I almost completely burnt myself out on everything.

My girlfriend saw this, realized that I was falling back into the hole I was in this time last year and has graciously decided to help me out with the business side of That Drummer Guy Industries. We are now working roughly 50/50 together. I am of course am the face of That Drummer Guy, host, interviewer, reviewer, etc; but Lynn is starting to take over the other aspects of the business. She is helping me with my PR, email duties, and is now helping me organize the playlists for the show.

Notice with that, I said show, not shows. As part of not running myself into the grave like I almost did last year, I am taking a couple nights a week to do absolutely nothing productive to save my own sanity. In the past I would work from when I wake up till when I go to bed thinking about what to do to improve what I am doing.

Part of that relaxation time is sadly taking a hiatus from Infernal Rock Radio. I love doing a live show, it is so much fun to actually interact with people listening to the show and being able to play anything from my music collection, but at the same time, it causes me to agonize over the playlist and who is listening and everything that does not involve actually enjoying doing a live show. So until I have the time to do a live show again, I will be just sticking to the syndicated show, That Drummer Guy Presents. I have to thank my girlfriend again for realizing and telling me that the live show was driving my stress levels to maximum capacity.

Along with that, I also tried doing an album review a day, which was causing a lot of unneeded stress on me. So after taking time to think about it, I'm not stopping the album reviews, but I will do them when the mood strikes. It could be several at a time, or once a week, whatever the case may be. Again, this is just until I find the time to make it a regular thing. But that also said, I will ALWAYS do the extra long album reviews at the end of the year that I ALWAYS do, because people know me for that.

We have also been having business meetings for the last few weeks to figure out the best way to make That Drummer Guy an unstoppable force, and the ideas we have will come to fruition down the road, Hopefully you guys will dig everything that will be happening in the near future.

Thanks for sticking around and enjoying what I do as That Drummer Guy, Every year has been getting bigger and bigger and I have no intentions to stop now!

If it makes you feel any better I've missed the live show for over a month since I haven't been doing it. :lol: Tuesdays in Agust was filled with doctor appointments, concerts and my 26th birthday so I had no time to do it anyways. The syndicated show is still around thought.....HINT HINT! :tongue:

Hammerfall- Hector's Hymn - Even though I left off listening to this song, decided to listen to it again! No regrets. Best band in the world.
Arctic Sleep- Passage of Gaia - Fantastic drum sound. Not digging the vocals. I feel like this has Insomnium-esque potential, but isn't quite the right style. If this were heavier, I'm certain I'd love it.
Nachtmystium- The World We Left Behind - This was actually a pretty catchy song. I had never listened to these guys before. Can't really support them though given the current situation.
Stork- Given Away - This band name/song title combo gave me a good laugh. Music and vocals aren't doing it for me though. Not enough substance in the riffs. It's a bit hypnotic though, which I like.
The Kindred- An Evolution of Thought - Don't really like the vocals. Not melodic enough for a "singer" singer and not aggressive enough for extreme metal vocals. Never been a prog guy though.
Halcyon Way- Web of Lies - I had never listened to this band before, but for some reason I've always thought they were a female fronted symphonic metal band. Way off... There are some solid riffs here, and a catchy vocal line or two, but prog stuff doesn't really do it for me. It feels very Nevermoreish, though I say that with only little familiarity of Nevermore. Not a fan of mixing clean and harsh vocals. 99% of the time it doesn't work. Guitar solo is WICKED though.
Mater Thallium- Maternal Mortality - Don't like the whispered vocals. Or the singing vocals for that matter :lol:
Funeralbloom- Cherry Orchard - Same issue some of the other songs have. Too tame for my tastes. And then it randomly breaks into black metal. This section is better. I especially like the sort of hopeless feel it gives off.
Amberian Dawn- I'm Still Here - This woman has the voice of an angel. The music switches between awesome and mediocre. With enough time, I'm sure I would really love these guys. Turns out I've got a promo, so I will probably check this album out.
The Haunted- Psychonaut - The riffs are kind of underwhelming. I've never given these guys a shot before, but the song I wrote today has better riffs than this. Equally unoriginal though :P Not a terrible song on the whole though.
Aborted- Of Dead Skin & Decay - So heavy. I don't really listen to this kind of stuff, but it's so satisfying to hear once in a while. A good smash to the face!
Witchaven- Death Rides A Pale Horse - I've ignored these guys for far too long. Good to finally hear them. The opening riff has a very "Power Thrashing Death" feel even though it's quite different. The vocal changes are interesting. Pretty intense stuff. I don't know if I would listen to this often, but I'm glad to have heard them.
Blood God- Defenders of the Throne of Fire - Very different from the band Bloodgod that I had heard of before. Vocals are hilarious, but this is great otherwise. There's a nice Judas Priest vibe here.
Ascendancy- The Dark Side of Philosophy - Pretty good aside from the vocals.
The Autumn League- The End of Enmity - No real substantial thoughts on this one. Didn't really like it, but it wasn't offensive either.
Tankard- Fooled By Your Guts - :party: This is my jam. I love Tankard! I wish this album was easy to find in North America. This band needs more love. I don't even drink but man Tankard is awesome!
龍5150- Just Keep Your Heart The music is great, but I just can't handle the vocals. It's too bad because this is really killer stuff.
Wolf- Shark Attack - Surprisingly I have never heard this band before but it's pretty good. It sounds like Accept with some power metal influences. I'm kind of glad I heard this because I probably would have bought the album if I came across it in a store, but hearing this now, I don't know if that would have been a great call. It's a good song, but there's so much great music out there.
Poisoned By Life- Burning - This band contacted me last week about their album and I just listened to it today and reviewed it. I've already heard this song twice today, so I'm skipping it, but it was the only track on the album that I really liked. Also skipping the Lady Gaga cover because it's 11 PM and I'm tired. And I don't know the original song anyways :P

Great show this week!

Crimson Shadows- Maidens Call - Big fan of these guys as you know. Glad you're starting the show with them! I hope their new album is the one that breaks them big!
Winterfylleth- Whisper of the Elements - Very cool song. Always wanted to listen to these guys but the long albums turned me off. The song itself is too long, but it never got boring.
Last Days of Eden- Paradise - I dig the opening symphonics. Singer isn't particularly great, especially because this feels heavily Nightwish influenced, but she's not Tarja. Likewise the male singer is no Marco. Still a decent track though because the chorus is really catchy.
Protean Collective- Caldera - Didn't really dig this. Too modern sounding for me.
Trey Williams Interview Part 1/2 - Skipped most of this because I'm not a DF fan but he seemed like a nice dude.
Dying Fetus- Dissidence - Drummer needs to lay off the blast beats. Decent song, but nothing I'd listen to often.
The Scintilla Project- Permanence - Never heard of this band, but I had no idea Biff was involved in something so intense. While I love his voice, I don't think it really worked that well in this song, especially before it gets heavy again.
Deterior- Gnawing At The Pit - Too much brutal, not enough songwriting for me.
In Flames- Dead Eyes - Never listened to this era of In Flames. I can see why people dislike it, especially coming from what they used to sound like. I didn't think it was awful, but I would never listen to it.
Scar for Life- Because I Can - Didn't really dig this.
Strikken- Scar Tissue - Not digging the random harsh vocals. Clean vocals aren't great either, and riffs are pretty standard.
Eluveitie- Sucellos - Not bad. Folk isn't my thing but this definitely was decent.
The Matador- Vaalbara - Really don't like this vocal style.
Youth Forgotten- Moral Soul Vocals and music didn't do it for me.

Gonna call it a night here. Will definitely be back for the rest because I need to hear that Gus G. track. Solid show thus far!

Just to make things worse for Social Media, Twitter is now taking a page from Facebook (I didn't realize that's kind of a pun on a pun until I typed this) and is now limiting Tweets and making you pay money to get more reach.

Fucking fantastic, as if I don't already have a hard enough time getting reach for That Drummer Guy... :(

Are they really limiting tweets? It looked like you could just pay more for a better reach (ie: showing up in those suggestion emails)?

It's getting out of hand. My latest posts on Facebook are getting a reach of 30-80 people for a page with 1100+ likes. I just don't understand it. This is why I like everything, so I don't miss out on those updates. I'm surprised others don't do the same.

Fuck social networking. My band Dalla Nebbia has very minimal fans (under 400 I believe) and we have HUGE NEWS we have been/will be announcing for our second album that would mean more for more to see it, but almost no one gets to see it. It's really crushing those smaller bands. Should be a movement soon where they all just make "People profiles"

It helps a lot when you post statuses without links, and if you want to repost something, just repost it instead of sharing it. I experimented with putting links in comments instead of the post and it pretty much doubles and sometimes triples my reach.

I actually didn't have reliable internet until last night (I was tethering with my phone all week), and when I got home last night the new HammerFall CD was waiting for me, so I might not listen to anything else for a week :P

I'll definitely check out some of this week's show at some point this weekend though.

With it being Blabbermouth, I was hoping they were going to take a phrase out of context for the headline :lol:

Thanks Man!, you should check out the interview, even if you don't like ATR, we talk about drums for about 3/4th of the interview.
