Who do you watch on stage? For me, it’s always the drummer. There’s something admirable and cathartic about watching someone slamming sticks into things and making awesome sounds. I don’t play the drums nor could I tell you what’s being hit at any given moment, but I appreciate the hell out of a good drummer. So I’m extra excited to share this sick drum cam video from LIZZARD! Their drummer Katy Elwell absolutely destroys on their song “Blowdown” off of their recent album Eroded out now via Pelagic Records – you can order it here. Elwell makes smashing drums look like the most satisfying thing in the world to me. I’m really happy to be sharing their “Blowdown (Drum Playthrough)” video with you right here and now!
Drumming for me is a primal, tribal way of expressing myself. I love the flow of movement through rhythm! I approach drumming a little like a martial art, too. The drumming on ‘Blowdown’ is a good example of that, playing this song feels a bit like being in a fight!!! I love it!!!
