Kevin Paradis has studied drums with Dante Agostini method (his teacher was Michel Blanc) during 10 years before to shift into Metal music.
He has proved that he can beat the official world record of single strokes in 1 minute with 1037 strokes played, on his Trick Drums USA Pro1-V bigfoot pedal, and he has also proved that he can beat the official record of 5 minutes, with 4797 strokes played. While working on speed and stamina, Kevin has also tried to stay in touch with what he has learned with the Dante Agostini method. The drum covers on his Youtube channel range from Nile to Porcupine Tree, including Between The Buried And Me, Ulcerate and Animals As Leader, and can attest to that.
Having played with bands like Melechesh and Benighted, he is currently playing for Mithridatic, Svart Crown and other projects. Kevin is also a studio session drummer.
Kevin proudly endorses Trick Drums USA Pedals and Triggers, Pearl Drums, Sabian Cymbals, Pro-mark Drumsticks, Evans Drumheads, Pour Tchack drum wear, and Serial Drummer drum wear.
This video is Kevin playing Svart Crown’s Transsubstanation, live at Sylak Open Air Festival in France 2017.
