Daniel Koppy of Reaping Asmodeia – Dying Fetus – Pissing In The Mainstream – Drum Cover

This is drummer Daniel Koppy of Reaping Asmodeia, covering Dying Fetus’ “Pissing In The Mainstream.”

Daniel comments: “I wanted to do something a little different for this video, so I decided to do a drums-only approach to this one. It is hard to pick out a favorite Dying Fetus record myself, but Destroy the Opposition is surely a staple death metal album for many. This album was not done to a click. The drumming is amazing on this album and Kevin Talley really brought it on the Dying Fetus albums and Misery Index albums he did. This track starts out at about 204 or 205 but drops to about 200-202 through most of the track. I just split the difference and dialed it in at 204bpm and ran through the song by memorization. It was a fun one and challenging one to do.”

The audio in this video is live, unedited, and no sound replacement was used.

Kick drum sound is a d6 mic blended with my main trigger sample I use in Reaping Asmodeia live. The sample is built from a few steven slate sounds and re EQ’d.

Trigger lines run through my Roland SPDS-X
