Rhythm Drummer's World Cup
Last 16 of the Rhythm Drummer's World Cup! Your votes count - who do you think is the best drummer between these two great drummers?
Michael Miley (Rival Sons) v Matt Halpern (Periphery)
Rival Sons' mix of schooled chops and shamelessly flamboyant '70s rock flair has floored audiences and critics alike, proving that painstakingly honed musicality and knuckle-dragging raw power aren't mutually exclusive. Drummer Michael Miley is a skilled and charismatic sticksman, channelling John Bonham's brute force, Tommy Lee's restless energy and Jeff Porcaro's feel.
Pushing the boundaries of modern metal with his thoughtful rhythms and inspirational technique and drum philosophy is Periphery's Matt Halpern. Influenced by Bonham, Copeland and Dennis Chambers, Matt's love of both playing and teaching drums shines through in his incredible drumming.
Totally different drummers, and we're not saying one's better than the other. What we're asking is: which one is the greatest in your opinion?
