In this first video, Cameron demonstrates how to play a triplet bomb blast. He breaks down the blast beat and explains what each limb is playing at varying tempos. The bomb blast is essentially a combination of blast beat and double bass drumming. When measured in 16th notes a bomb blast consists of 8th notes on the snare played above 16th notes on the kick drum. Most drummers play this beat by leading with the snare, while the traditional blast beat is usually led with the kick. The bomb blast became popular among 1990s death metal bands such as Cannibal Corpse, which is why the bomb blast is sometimes referred to as the “Cannibal” blast.
