Great playing, great video!
For me this highlights the best and worst of Mike Mangini's drumming. Some of the passages, like during the instrumental breaks I really enjoy.
But his drum composition during sections like 2:10 to 2:20 is, in my opinion, just ugly
. I can't think of a better word to describe it at the moment - it is complex, sure, possibly hard to play, too. But to me, as a non-drummer, it just sounds horrible, forced, and doesn't fit the music at all.
But congrats on a great cover!
