Mediocre-at-best drummer for NU METAL
, who, despite not having any particularly exceptional talent, is heralded as "the fastest drummer ever" by Slipknot's legions of cretinous fans.
I mean, compared to other Nu Metal drummers, he's pretty good, but considering the Nu Metal genre as a whole, that isn't saying much.
I mean, seriously, what the fuck? Fastest drummer EVER? I don't think so.
For all those who remain unconvinced, check out Cryptopsy
's None So Vile album. While it's almost guaranteed that nearly every run-of-the-mill Mallcore
/Nu Metal kid will lack the capacity to appreciate cryptopsy's excellence, just focus on the drumming. If that doesn't eliminate this absurd conception that Joey Jordison is even close to ranking amongst the world's fastest drummers, then I don't think anything will.
Just go on youtube and search "Flo Mounier Rehearsing Phobophile." I would link directly to it but this asshole website won't let me.
So, there you have it. A rehearsal take from Phobophile, one of the songs on the aforementioned Cryptopsy album, None So Vile.
If, when compared against Joey Jordisons drumming, you still think that Joey's faster, then there's something wrong with you.
As an amusing side-note, not so long ago I heard a couple of Slipknot fans talking about how Joey was, in fact, the fastest drummer in the world... I just chuckled.
