Vinnie Paul was a machine at making folks bang their heads together with his drumming in Pantera. Watch as Drumeo drummer Aaron Edgar breaks down precisely why Paul‘s grooves made folks film, tackling every part from the grooves themselves to the fill between.
“Until his untimely passing in 2018, Pantera‘s Vinnie Paul was one of the sickest drummers in heavy music,” stated Drumeo of the video. “His crushing drum elements are immediately recognizable to metalheads, and he was the proper rhythmic counterpart to bandmate, guitarist, and brother Dimebag Darrell (1966-2004).
“Pantera achieved things most other metal bands wish they could. For example, Far Beyond Driven is one of the heaviest albums to ever hit #1 on the Billboard charts. Vinnie‘s beats gave the riffs his own brand of oomph, and the band wouldn’t have been the same without him.”
