A.K.A. "Lego Blast Vader".
Finally have mustered sufficient energy to do another LEGO® animation. Hereby is a loving tribute to metal drumming, all things AKERCOCKE and, in particular, Mr David Gray.
Hope you enjoy.

Song: Eyes of the Dawn
Album: Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone

P.S. For those unacquainted with the world of extreme metal, "Blast" as in a "blast beat", generally comprises a repeated, sixteenth-note figure played at a very fast tempo, and divided uniformly among the bass drum, snare, and ride, crash, or hi-hat cymbal.
