My influences for drumming, as well as my musical influences continue to change and evolve over time.
Originally my primary drumming style evolved with the old Thrash scene, so going back to the days of Slayer, Dark Angel, Metallica, Anthrax, Nuclear Assault, etc.
After that, Death Metal was a huge influence on me musically, so Death, Napalm Death, Fear Factory, Deicide, anything fast, and lots of blazingly fast, accurate double bass. Fear Factory in particular, and the drumming approach of Raymond Herrera remains the biggest influence on my drumming. More recently, I'm a big fan of Francesco Paoli and Fleshgod Apocalypse.
I'm also very fond of Electronic music; I'm selective, but enjoy anything from Trance/Techno (Tiesto, DJ Sasha, Deep Dish, iio are good examples) to heavier industrial music (Ministry 'Thieves', Combichrist 'This sh*t...", Malformed Earthborn 'Random Memory Erased')
I try to incorporate the industrial stuff into my playing using MIDI to trigger samples, but I don't get too carried away with it.
Some random drummers that I like a lot: Francesco Paoli, Raymond Herrera, Gene Hoglan, Terry Bozzio
Lots and lots of drums.
