#METALMARCH24 Day 3: "Cemetery Gates" by Pantera

Welcome to the inaugural #METALMARCH24, brought to you by @RichRawDawgDrums & @KMKanDrum where drummers across the world post #drumcovers of their favorite #heavymetal songs throughout March 2024! Post your metal drum cover, tag us, and use the hashtag #METALMARCH now!

It was a toss-up between "Cemetery Gates" and "Cowboys From Hell." I went with this one because of the groove factor on display by the late, great Vinnie Paul. To this day, his playing impresses me. He could shred and bang like no other, but he also brought a groove and feel that no one in the metal genre has been able to replicate. He is sorely missed in the drum world.

Being a more groove-type drummer, the decision was easy for me. But I still had to work on trying to match his style with my own. Some of the things he does are subtle but complicated and refined.

I hope you enjoy my version of this song, and please come back for the next installment of METALMARCH24!

Song: Cemetery Gates

Artist: Pantera
