Laus Deo Semper
This is a Tribute.
Dedicated to just a few of the bands that had such an incredibly big effect and influence on my love for music and drumming. For the record, the first song I EVER played on a drumkit, was Sweetness from Jimmy Eat World, way back middle 2002.
(The video was initially removed because LINKIN PARK - FAINT was tagged due to copyright constraints. I got it back up after disputing the copyright claim, as this cover renders the original song useless for third-part copying.)
This Tribute is a compliation of (sometimes only pieces of) the following songs:
Jimmy Eat World - Sweetness
Blink-182 - Anthem Pt. II
Blink-182 - First Date
Box Car Racer - There Is
Blink-182 - I Miss You
Biffy Clyro - 57
Linkin Park - Faint
Dream Theatre - New Millennium
Dream Theatre - Fatal Tragedy
Liquid Tension Experiment - Universal Mind
Dream Theater - Octavarium
The set follows my drumming journey from pop-punk to the more complicated and heavier stuff. I remember thinking I would NEVER be able to play the 3/8 variation in New Millennium, so it was SO much fun to out in this compilation, and to be forced to learn to play it.
I have to emphasize, I know saying I "cover" these songs is wrong, seeing as I only PARTLY stayed true to the song's drums (or lack thereof), through the WHOLE set I play some variations of the beats, phrasing and fills, since 99% of what I play is improvised. Even though I have done my fair share of session and studio drumming, that has little to zero effect on these video's, I kind of see them as live performances. I'm NOT aiming to be accurate to the original drums, I'm just aiming to enjoy myself. And I thoroughly succeeded in doing that, might I add :)
