About to get back into doing some covers and playthroughs heavy. Keep an eye out for some videos real soon. I’m feelin some Amon Amarth today! #doublebasspedal #amonamarth #heavy #drums #drumcover #vikingmetal

Can’t get enough of these #rupertnevedesigns shelford channel strips! Such a powerful addition to the studio. I’ve never gotten drum sounds the way I do with these things... #recordingstudio #rupertnevedesigns #shelfordchannel #eq #superdiodecompressor #silksaturation #audio

Some more footage of mountain drumming! In this clip im practicing a section from an @etheriusband track with a small twist. The original groove consists of a kick pattern thats a group of 8 sixteenth notes followed by a quarter note over the course of 4 bars while the snare is on beat 3 and quarter notes are played on the crash. Over here I’m messing around with adding a few accents on the other crash at the same time the quarter note happens on the kick except for the one quarter note that lines up with the snare on beat 3. #sabiancymbals #vicfirthsticks #onthespot #doublebass #mountaindrumming #dwdrums #accents #drummers #drumlesson #scenicview #drumspiration #seriouslikeetherius #elevation #trickdrums #trickdominator

Messing around with some Latin style beats on a mountain. I believe that surroundings can drastically act as ones source of inspiration. Being up there, breathing the fresh air, and enjoying those views while playing drums was a great experience. Also just happened to get cooled off with a little rain a few mins after. #sabiancymbals #vicfirthsticks #mountaindrumming #dwdrums #musicvideo #onthespot #views #drums #drumming #rimshots #doubles

Another new @etheriusband video is out. This time it’s released through @guitarworldmagazine. Honored to be on a recording featured through such an iconic media outlet. Looking forward to more big things in the very near future. Keep an eye on Etherius and go check out the new video! #makingmoves #instrumental #instrumental #threadoflife #etherius #guitarporn #metal #guitarworld

It’s about that time where you’ve brought your entire drum kit up a mountain, filmed a video, broken down, and about to take that hike back down. Send your prayers. Lol jk. #drums #mountains #freshair #drumvideo #8k #workhardplayhard #instrumental #drumporn #metal #needsometechs

This was one hot video shoot. New music video with @thesilencermusic coming soon. Meanwhile today I’m also releasing an awesome video with @etheriusband that will demonstrate some of the technical side of my drumming. Stay tuned. Big things coming. #drums #musicvideo #drummersofinstagram #zildjian #tama #fire #hot #behindthescenes #doublebass #heat #kcustoms #firecannon #within #ny #music
