Vomit Fist Drum Lesson: “A Public Execution” – Playing in 15/8Nate Brown
Lurkrot plays through the Vomit Fist tune "A Public Execution" and shows how he combines both straight time and melodic drumming techniques when playing in odd meters.
Lurkrot Explains this Lesson:
Vomit Fist is a technically challenging band and one of my favorite parts to play is the middle section in “A Public Execution”. It is deceptive, frantic, and heavy all at the same time. I think it encapsulates a good portion of what our music is all about.
In this video, I tried to showcase the melodic aspects of my drumming. I drew inspiration from one of my favorite drum parts in “Now You Got Something to Die For” by Lamb of God. Chris Adler follows the opening riff, placing cymbal hits and double kicks in line with the guitar to accentuate it. The drum part in “A Public Execution” applies a similar concept where the snare and double kick match the tricky guitar melody.
Currently in Vomit Fist, we’re moving toward more vicious and noise-oriented riffs that act more as textures, like in our tune “Under the Rind”. We’re looking forward to writing and recording more material and hitting the road to support our new record Forgive but Avenge.
