Onlinedrummer.com mastermind Nate Brown demonstrates Arin Ilejay’s grandiose drum part from the song “Shepherd Of Fire” – the opening track off of Avenged Sevenfold’s latest album Hail To The King – which includes clever use of tom flams, double kick patterns, sloshy hats, and explosive crash cymbal accents. Be sure to pick up the October 2013 issue of DRUM!
