This song is eight minutes of continual punishment for the drummer. For at least 5 of the eight minutes, you will play the same pattern. It is a fast, metal beat (cymbal+pedal cymbal-snare, cymbal+pedal pedal cymbal+snare) that is quite challenging to hit since it is so fast. The only break a player will get from this irritating pattern is a VERY fast drum roll that lasts 3 seconds. As for the other three minutes, you are hitting your crash cymbals every few seconds during the breaks in the song. If you are a drummer, I really can't recommend it. It is long, hard, tiring, and lacks variety. However, I'm just talking to the people who don't have ankles made of steel. For those of you who loved playing Blackened or any Anthrax song, you'll probably think a 4 or 5 would be a more accurate review.
Normal People: DON'T BUY THIS
Insane People: Consider it a new challenge. Buy it.
