Asking Alexandria Drumming Workshop

In this drum lesson, James Cassells demonstrates several drum parts he played on Reckless & Relentless, the 2011 release from the British metalcore band Asking Alexandria. He covers the closing section from the song “Breathless,” the beginning of “Morte Et Dabo,” and the intro to “A Lesson Never Learned,” then closes the lesson by describing the heel-toe pedaling technique he uses to play some of his more complex bass drum parts.

Be sure to pick up the March, 2012 issue of DRUM! Magazine at your local drum shop or newsstand for the transcriptions and expert analysis of these songs, or go here to purchase a copy online.
