Produced and directed by legendary metal drummer Derek Roddy, Blast Beats Evolved explores the development and mechanics of modern extreme drumming. The DVD features examples and exercises for Blast Beats, Skank Beats, Bomb Blasts, Hammer Blasts and Freehand Blasts, plus a comprehensive conditioning program for hands and feet, balance and endurance, and also includes five solo jams and performances of seven Serpents Rise songs—complete with minus-drums play-along tracks.
Blast Beats Evolved is recommended for drummers who want to gain the mental discipline and technical facility required to master this demanding yet relevant drumming style. In addition, the instructional material on the DVD can be used in conjunction with Roddy’s award-winning book/audio pack, The Evolution Of Blast Beats, and can be applied in a variety of progressive drumming situations.
