This is a "drum cover" of Inslowmotion's song, Stupid Things.
As some of you propably already know, the band I play in is called Inslowmotion. We recently finished recording our self-titled debut full length album, which will be released early next year. The Hybrid Series will contain 5 of our songs, so you guys can hear what we sound like, also so you can hear what type of drum parts I write myself :) The 5 songs that will be uploading will be three english songs, and two Afrikaans songs.
Concerning the drum parts.. this is pretty much a pop-punk song, with two movements. The first is straight forward and pretty anthemic, and the second is a way out, strange, very full, (and almost "stupid", hehe) movement. In this second and last movement of the song I play one of the grooves in my arsenal that I am most proud of. It turns into two-dimensional polyrhythm, and then a three dimensional polyrhythm just before it goes to the toms-variaton of the same groove. Written as a simulation of and metaphor for the contradicting complexity of doing stupid things, even though you know you shouldn't. I love it :)
As I always say, these video's are to be viewed as live performances, NOT studio recordings. I don't hold back, I don't underplay.. this was fun and I totally went out to enjoy it :) Critique in terms of originally written performances is always difficult, since it is so very very subjective; that said, I will LOVE to hear what you guys think of our material, please rate the video and leave comments, it'll be MUCH appreciated.
