From Hell’s Heart: Top 5 Current Metal Drummers

From Hell’s Heart:
Top 5 current metal drummers

Drummers are the driving force of the metal engine. As most focus is on a band’s front-person, we thought it would be nice to look at the skin-pounders and round up a list of our favs. For our purposes this time, the constraint is that they have to be a drummer that is currently active in METAL….that means the drummer has to actually still play in a current recording/touring metal band! We asked our staff to try and not make it a list of their top 5 fav bands, and to actually think about what they believe great drumming to be. It’s doubtful that everyone’s top 5 bands actually contain the best drummers…it’s possible, if you’re a drummer and listen to bands based on deadly drumming. Otherwise, each staffers list focuses on great drummers, regardless of the band(s) they are in.

Anvil – Steve “Lips” Kudlow & Robb Reiner

Interview with Steve "Lips" Kudlow & Robb Reiner

Interviewed by Petri Da Costa

The band Anvil, formed in the late 70’s in Canada by vocalist/guitarist Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner, had a glorious start releasing a string of three unforgettable classic metal albums: ”Hard ‘N’ Heavy”, ”Metal on Metal” and ”Forged in Fire”. With these three albums the band made a name for themselves and had even an influence in the early thrash scene, people like Tom Araya, Scott Ian and Lars Ulrich have already spoken about how impressed they were with Anvil. What happened next, from the mid 80’s until a few years ago, most people don’t know, the band somehow "fell under the radar" for many. The band never stopped, even with label or line up changes or problems with management. Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow and Robb Reiner never gave up on their dream, and all this perseverance and passion for the band that they formed was one of the many ingredients for the success of ”Anvil! The Story of Anvil” (released in 2009), one of the most talked about and well received documentaries ever made.  So I asked ‘Lips’ and Robb about the band’s current situation and plans for this year and the future.
