In Episode 10 of The Extreme Drummers Podcast I speak to the legendary Donald Tardy of Obituary!
Like some of my other guests Donald truly needs no introduction! As the power house drummer behind one of the greatest and most legendary death metal bands of all time, he has more than proved himself as one of the greats of the genre.
Donald has a truly unique and distinctive style. Filled with groove and power combined with incredible musicality and true understanding of what is "needed" for the song, his amazing playing style adds so much to the Obituary sound and without him it just wouldn't sound like Obituary!
In this episode we talk about how he approaches practicing his drums, how he writes his drum parts, his long standing relationship with his band mates and what he has seen change in the music industry over the years. We talk about his love of cats and also his time playing with Andrew W.K !
All in all another incredible chat with an absolute legend! As always I hope you enjoy listening to it!
