Drummers—they need to take things one step further than everyone else in the band, don't they? They either need their drum kit to rise into the crowd and do flips like Mötely Crüe's Tommy Lee, or they need to bang on their kit with sticks that look like tree trunks, just like Led Zeppelin's John Bonham. But what all drummers really love—and I mean really, really love—is to play their drums with only one hand.
My dude, YouTuber El Estepario Siberiano, has made an art out of one-handed drumming. You remember him from last year, when a fan dared him to play the Slipknot banger "Eyeless" with one hand. (Spoiler alert: he nailed it, all while drinking a Diet Coke and owning the dude who dared him to do it.) Now, he's back with a new video, and this time, Siberiano takes no prisoners on cuts from System of a Down, Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold, and plenty others.
As the video opens by saying, "what you are about to see are the tales of a young man and his right hand." (Get you minds out of the gutter, people!) So, without further ado, enjoy this insane video from the one and only El Estepario Siberiano, master of the one-handed beat blast. (Again? Seriously, people. We're supposed to be adults!)
