Wow, a CD whose sole scope highlights the drummer...you know, that dude that hangs in the back of the stage and beats the hell out of things? Thanks to Magna Carta, exposure is given to some of metal's finest sticksmen who generally get overlooked on DRUM NATION. And while this CD tends to have quite the clinical vibe, if you're a drummer (or a musician for that matter) and want to hear guys like Kenneth Schalk, Chris Adler, Jason Bittner, and Chris Pennie throw down some vicious beats on top of an amalgamation of world beat, TV and film background music, jazz-rock, and metal, look no further. Just don't expect any annoying vocals or unnecessary melodic choruses to come into play here, just masters at their crafts giving the listener an exposition in excellence.
