Hey All,
Here's a link to some new music that my band is recording for our upcoming record. A little on the Heavy side, but I figured I'd put it up--

Thanks for listening--D.L.

Definitely no need for the disclaimer, D.L. You're doing your thing and slammin at it!

Brilliantly done!

You've really got the sixteenth note double bass drum thing happening, Dave.

Magnificent, Magnificent, Magnificent, Magnificent!!!! That's one for each tune!
Everyone in this band is just smokin, Dave. Way different stuff than what I'm
used to hearing from you... Fantastic Double bass work? Are you using two
bass drums or a double pedal? Those quick in and out injections of double
kick takes more control than all out double blasting, especially how and where
you were placing them. Very creatively written and produced material with just
the right amount of twists and turns... Class A material.

Awesome, D.L........ I'm just sayin!

I was trying to pick a favorite, I like them all! But it's probably a toss up
Between Hamburger Factory, Tomorrow and Animals.

Thanks again Don,
It was a double pedal for all that stuff- Heavy Metal is what I've always done primarily, but when I moved to Philly, I made friends with some producers who hired me to do records of other types of music, which thankfully, I always listened to and liked as well.

Coming up drumming, I always made it a point to learn Blues, Jazz, and country, techno and even Rap and Pop music.
there's something cool to learn from every style, and the different feels in drumming, and understanding the backrounds of each format.

Glad you dig the songs, and coming from you, It's a GREAT compliment cause you are one serious drummer in your own right--Thank you for taking the time to listen-

Hope all is well--D.L.

I know you to be a well versed and well rounded player in
diverse genres and styles. That asset come through no matter
what you play. You have a way of approaching the kit where
this trait naturally come out regardless of what your playing at
the time.

As I've posted in other threads, I'm really big on the concept of
capturing the essence of any given song or type of music. Some
will say that it's an objective thing. I disagree. When something is
right, it's just right! When it works, it works , you just know it and
that's the end of it. When something's funky, it's funky, or slammin,
then it's just that! There's nothing to debate.... You don't even have
to like it and still be able to grasp the reality of it being done correctly!

This is how what you and your band has done comes across.
It was just done RIGHT! The added bonus for me is, I like it!
And not just your playing but the entire group involved right
across to the sound engineer and I know some sound quality
was lost in these posted clips as this is generally always the

I'd like to know more about the setup you used if that's not asking
too much. What was you drum and cymbal setup, might you have
any pics you can post? I'd also like to purchase a CD.

Thanks Don,

I used a Yamaha Maple Custom-(not the absolutes) 22x18 12x10 16x16 and 18x16 floor toms
an 8x14 Craviotto snare (solid walnut)

Evams EC2 clears for the batter heads and ec resonants
for the bottom heads--as for the snare I used a Remo Control sound coated on top and an ambassador on the bottom.

for cymbals i used 14'' K Custom session hats, 18'' K custom session crash, 19'' A custom crash, 21'' K custom crash Ride and a 20''K custom hybrid china cymbal

I also used a 20'' Istanbul Trash cymbal that I played with my hand for an overdub on ''tomorrow'' to sound like a gong-
and a ribbon crasher in 'Animals''

The album is about half done but when it's finished I'll definitely send you one at no charge of course.

If you go to my facebook page and scroll down throught the posts a bit, there's pics and a small vid of my set up on there as well-

Thanks again for listening and I'm glad you like it!! Cool Cool

Talent. Dave, you got it. You can square it off they way it's supposed to be composed and that's the most difficult part of any instrument. Add chops and it's complete.
