This video is drummer Daniel Koppy playing Reaping Asmodeia’s “The Clemency Guise,” which is the opening track on the band’s Prosthetic Records debut Imputitize. The record was recorded with live drums and was released in early 2017. Since its release, the band has toured with the likes of Archspire and Inanimate Existence and will be on the road throughout the spring and summer of 2018. Drum playthroughs of the band’s own material as well as others’ have been a constant throughout Daniel’s career, crossing genres to expand on playing techniques. Daniel has also begun writing the band’s next full-length album.
Daniel proudly endorses Trick Drums USA bass drum pedals and laser trigger systems, and Los Cabos Drumsticks.

Kick drum sound is a d6 mic blended with my main trigger sample I use live with Reaping Asmodeia. The sample is built from a few Steven Slate sounds and are EQ’d.
Trigger lines run through a Roland SPDS-X.
