Who was about 10 when we attended the Coventry Mike Dolbear get together (the one where Sammy-Jo broke Jamoca's pedal)

Anyway, this is him now

I have to say I never have (and doubt I ever will) "got" this type of music. so can't comment on the song or the band really.

That aside though I wish I could drum half as well as that!

Thanks for the comments chaps. He's come quite a long way considering some of the problems he's had.

As for the song, I quite like the music, it's the 'singing' I don't get

I mean, what's that all about????

It's a style, been around a few years, each generation has to take metal a bit further! I have seen a few shouty bands live, but decided not to participate in the Wall of Death!

My band more often than not end up on a bill full of shouty bands, whereas we're more tuneful. Seems to be the way new music is going now. Whenever we're on a more suitable bill, the bands are all in their mid 30s...

Good to see you on here again. It was my pearl pedal, (I wonder what happened to sammy Jo)

Also good to see my old Brookie snare being used in anger

Golly gee. The lads all growed up.

Well I like it. Great double pedal work.

I also like that on occasions he looks like he can't wait to get back to the next chapter of his book...meaning, hes not all trashy-about, hair and sweat. Just very relaxed and calm.

Nice work.

Cheers Dave. I know right? He looks nearly as old as me!!! *very young looking*

After some serious 'issues' during the time you saw him and now, he's back to 'normal' and getting back into drumming properly.

I'm a very pleased and proud Dad.

What's kind of sweet, is that during his 'problem phase' he 'lost' much of his kit (Yamaha kit, cymbals, DW pedal etc, etc). However, he always treasured his Brookie snare (the one I bought from Ian). I think actually meeting him made a lasting impression.

I made sure his special Mapex stayed here though.

Oh no. I didn't realise it was your pedal! I assumed it was Josh's because it was his kit. We saw Sammy-Jo at Guilfest years ago but I think she's given up trying for the 'big time' now.

As others have said, good work Briglet and some tasty footwork too!

As for the vox comments, obviously I'm always fielding questions about that, playing grindcore as I do!

The best way to explain extreme vocals to anyone who doesn't understand them, is that they're more of an 'instrument' than 'singing'. It's actually hard to do with power and do well.

That was pretty darn good if you ask me. I've sang for years...however, i wouldn't have singing that style, my voice wouldn't last 2 minutes. It's hard to do, very demanding, and normally ends with a throat operation after a few years. Most of the singers end up with nodules....
,..... anyway, the drumming was fab, well don Briglet.
