Steam Will Rise is the final track on Silverchair's third album, Neon Ballroom, released in 1999. This slow, powerful anthem features the drums with a distinctive opening groove using the bass, snare and toms, as well as quirky, syncopated pre choruses, and two powerful drum solos. The melancholic lyrics in the verses describes the diminishing of self, which contrasts with an optimistic message of reclamation of self that underlies the choruses.

This is a great sounding drum beat, which for me, has elements of Hip Hop and a bit of Funk. The groove is a basic kick and snare rhythm, with the right hand playing solid 16th notes. Mid way through the beat, we are going to bring the left hand up to the hi hat to provide us with some 32nd notes. On the 'a' of beat 2, we are going to play two 32nd notes on the kick drum. The drum fill is a simple RLRLKK played twice, followed by four 32nd notes on the snare. This fill also works as a full measure 16th note pattern.
