yeah, apparently now the cryptopsy thing is tentative, we are waiting on Flo. But even if they didnt play, its still a sick clinic/benefit. Flo and Derek are doing a duet! you cant beat that, plus awesome equipment is being auctioned off!

i don't know about over-rated....ill give you that you can make a strong argument about derek being better but to say that derek "destroys" flo is goin a little overboard...



toggletoggle post by anonymous at May 21,2004 8:11am
i agree. derek and flo are two totally different drummers. i think derek is more of an aggressive drummer, flo is a more techy drummer. either way, the both of them are incredible jazz and latin musicians.

Being a drummer myself, both Flo and Derek are solid drummers, but when it comes down to who is better? I'd definitely pick Flo any day. I don't think it's fair to say he's overrated because the guy can basically back up the claims. Roddy is fast but Flo sounds like he has more than 2 arms on Whisper Supremacy. Hate Eternal as a whole isn't near Cryptopsy's level.



toggletoggle post by anonymous at May 22,2004 3:31pm
hate eternal and cryptopsy are two totally different styles, though. HE is way more aggressive, and full fledge all the time, Cryp. to me is a more techy band. either way, they both are on the same level percussion-wise. the two are incredibly well rounded musicians.



toggletoggle post by TheGreatSpaldino   at May 22,2004 3:32pm
indeed... but from what i have heard from Cryptopsy... i just dont see how everyone can say he is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO amazing. good, yes... amazing, no. but thats just from Cryptopsy's material...



toggletoggle post by attendmyrequiem at May 22,2004 8:00pm
Flo also plays in a jazz project. he's capable of two technical drumming styles.



toggletoggle post by BornSoVile   at May 22,2004 9:26pm
Flo's great, he's my favorite drummer of all time, but he cheats. Why do his blasts always seem to disappear?
I can't believe both Flo and Derek will be in Woonsocket! That is the last place on earth I'd expect to see them give a demo, I gotta see this shit. Looks like I will turn into a Woonsocket Rocket after all.

His blasts don't disapear. I got video to prove it.

maybe he doesn't hit hard enough?

cyptopsy rules....whisper supremacy all the way



toggletoggle post by anonymous at May 23,2004 2:53pm
his blasts seem to 'disappear' to you, because hes not triggering his snare drum. some of his blasts are gravity blasts, and its hard to get a loud sound out of doing that..



toggletoggle post by The_ExhumeD  at May 23,2004 6:00pm
what the fuck is a gravity blast. Im not a drummer here

best drummer mike portonoy of dream theatre, have you heard his solos



toggletoggle post by anonymous at May 24,2004 3:46pm
a gravity blast is when you incorporate the rim of the drum to get really fast blastbeats, its hard to explain.

Oh sorry, you don't win the case of fish balls and lizard testicles. Flo plays what is called a Hyper-Blast. It loses it's sound after awhile do to the wrist motion being used. A Gravity-Blast it is what was introduced by such drummers as Johnny Rabb and is used mainly in Origin's music. John Longstreth introduced this to us on the first Origin cd, who actually learned it from their original drummer. Hellhammer does it, John does it, as do others. You do incorporate the rim of the snare however you use the rebound of the bottom part of the hit and you use your fingers not your wrists. When done right it is awesome to incorporate into your music. Not that I am a drummer or anything....

Ok well being a drummer yourself you should be able to hear the diversity in Derek Roddys drumming. He can back up his claims just as well as Flo. Derek does alot of Latin stuff, Flo does alot of jazzy type stuff. To say there are not of equal caliber is just an ignorant statement to make. They both have their great things that they do so well. Listen to some old Malevolent Creation"In Cold Blood" to be exact. Way ahead of it's time. Council of the Fallen is another. Diversify yourself Bro......

I had a great time. Indeed, all the drummers kicked ass. I won a handfull of shit(vhs's, sticks, autographed skins, cd,t-shirt, instrutional book) It was good to see some metal heads there and of course, the rev, providing us with pics.
How about the chick holding all the auction goods

Yep, a great time was had by me also. No Cryptopsy, but oh well, they said they'd be coming back to make up for it. I won absolutely nothing, but my kookus of a friend is the loud annoying one who bought the cymbal autographed by a whole bunch of people for $400 (that he didn't have) I was sitting next to him.

And yeah, that girl holding the auction goods, daaaaaaaaaaamn,

That show was awsome

Bernard Pretty Pertie was my favorite, he was so into the zone, his whole self was sooo into it, you had to love it. Espeacially the parts where he was singing along.

That Cuban group was really killer, the main leader guy was so damn happy.

That auction was pretty funny, elll ooooh elll @ Tim getting up in the middle of the other auction to bid on that cymbal. I would of bid him out though if I had the money, I need that Trapt signature...jay kay ell oh ell

Don was insane

I hope they continue this convention because it was alot of fun....and hopefully they come through with what ever they said about bringing Cryptopsy back. oh em gee, if Cryptopsy were there, that would of put that day through the roof in levels of coolness.



toggletoggle post by Kalopsia   at Jul 18,2004 10:30pm
i think flo probably woulda blown derek roddy away. but i don't truly know, since i've never heard roddy outside of Hate Eternal in which his drumming consists of "blast........hit,hit, blast........................................... tom roll, blast........................... end of song."



toggletoggle post by KevinTheSprigg at Jul 18,2004 10:40pm
He really surprised me. I thought his solo would consist of blast blast blast blast roll blast blast etc. He out doing that, and continued on it for a few minutes, but then he went into some really cool grooves and just improvised (using every piece of his massive kit) with any insane blasts or fills. He did a really crazy one handed snare roll a few times. After grooving for 10 or so minutes, he went back to a crazy blast hit roll fest for the last couple minutes. He did a fantastic job and apparently (judging from some people's reactions after) really impressed a lot of the non metal people there.

such a good and positive event. everyone seemed to just be having a great time and doing it for the right reasons.

go quartet: I walked in during the last bit of their set. it was a bunch of young kids playing jazz.

dom famularo: he was the speaker for the event. he spoke in between all the of the acts. his set was neat cause of style he had. he hit the sides of his cymbols and looked like he was thinking a lot.

jonathon mover: he fractured his foot not too long ago, but still came in. he played a simpler and more traditional set, rock oriented.

mance grady: played some weird single drum instrument. I guess he makes them.

clave logic: they actually had some other name. I think it was a puerto rican, a cubano and a white guy in this incantation. it was a mix of caribean and american rock beats. they came out playing taditional africa gourds, but then put them down and started playing on their sets up. each got to "solo" for a while showing off their tallent and then they came back together to continue. one of the guys had insanly fast hands on a bong. they also had like 30 cowbells... my fever for has been cured.

bernard purdie: probably the most venerable of the drummers at this event. he's recorded about 3000 lps. his set was so simple. it was a simple steady groove that he went off on. he was so humble too. after his set, some guy offered to donate $40 for the sticks he played on.

rick morin and the rhythm room kids: 8+ kids and one older gent on a bunch of instruments. they switched around a lot.

derek roddy: god damn... he started out with some stuff that people said was from the new HE cd, but I don't really know. it was insanely fast and tight blasts. at one point, his was fixing his hi hats while doing 200+ bpms on the double bass. after a few minutes, the blasts fadded out and he went into some progressive grooves. as the set went on he turned towards jazz drumming. he said he was looking around Florida to start up a jazz-ish band.

there was a long and mostly hilarious auction that lasted for about an hour. dom mc'd it. a 50-year snare donated by purdie which was played on 25 hit albums ended up being the winner. it kept going up in value and as it did, some extras got added to it... like an hour leason with dom and purdie in NYC. ended up going for $1300.

osp mega drum group: EVERY drummer sat down and started to played along. it was really cool cause the purdie's shuffle lead everyone through for a few minutes. a bunch of the staff also jumped on some of the drums.

thanks to aaron and everyone who showed up, it was an amazing day.
some of the sections that derek played during his 'set' we're from the new hate record. its going to be an awesome album.

i have to say myself, bernard was something else man, such a pocket and groove, dom was amazing as always, and jonathan mover was great too.

thanks again to everyone who went. theres a huge chance that we will be doing this again next year, and hopefully the cryptopsy thing can be worked out!

toggletoggle post by anonymous at Jul 20,2004 1:50am
we will. we felt bad because it was hard to believe that cyptopsy was infact slated to play this benefit, and then it ended up not happening. but if we do infact do this next year, tell everyone about it! and hopefully cryptopsy can make it. check out oceanstatepercussion.com for more pics of the event, and for news about planning for next years!
