Welcome to episode 23! This is a conversation with Robin stone. Robin’s an extreme metal drummer who plays with Norse, Somnium Nox, Convulsing and a whole bunch of other bands. He also specialises in remote session work as well. I had so much fun with this interview. Robin is hilarious, and so passionate about what he does. I’m not a metal drummer, and I’ve definitely fallen into the trap of dismissing extreme styles of music because I didn't understand them, but in the last few years as I’ve gotten more exposure to heavier music I’ve definitely come to respect and admire the dedication and work that it takes to be able to play blast beats at extreme tempos. Talk about reps. These guys have put in hundreds of Hours of work to get there, and it was great to get some context on the genre and to dig into why someone would be willing to dedicate that amount of time to playing really, really fast. So we cover a lot of ground. We talk about growing up in a super religious community, what it was like hearing extreme metal for the first time, how important listening is when working on blast beats, remote sessions, tension vs pain, DXP bass drum pedals and a whole bunch of other stuff. So here it is, I think you’ll dig it.
