My Dad has been playing the drums since he was 11, so there were always drums around me growing up. When I was 7 I got a conga drum for Christmas, thats when things started to go downhill…. I picked up the sax and bass for a few years, but none of them really “did” it for me. When my first band SEARBH was recording I started messing around with my Dad’s 10 piece Slingerland when no one was around and I loved it! One day after school I was playing and my Dad popped up out of no where and showed me my first 2 drum beats. It was there that I fell further down the rabbit hole….

The next month I started playing in bands. My first band I played drums in was a neo-soul duo named Drizzle, then an alternative rock band Integen for a few years, and then I got into a local metal band called Burial Rites. Burial Rites got to open up for Hate Eternal one night at the Masquerade and from then on I was addicted to extreme music. Following my departure from B.R. I was involved in a local comedy/grind band PORK! and death/grind band VOMITIZED! Unbeknownst to me my childhood friend Joe Payne (Divine Heresy, ex-Nile, Domination Through Impurity) was whoring out my name and had mentioned me to his friend Randy Piro (ex-Hate Eternal). Joe told me of Randy’s band GIGAN, so I checked them out on Myspace and was blown away! GIGAN was exactly the kind of music that I wanted to play; extreme brutality without the cliche horeshit everyone else has been spitting at me. I contacted Their other guitarist Eric Hersemann (ex-Diabolic/Hate Eternal/Lord Blasphemer) and he auditioned me. Three weeks and 11 songs later I was playing my first show with them in Chicago where we then recorded our full length at Volume Studios with Sanford PARKER which will be out mid-July. Since then, I have also played two shows in Canada with the viking metal band TYR. This was one of the greatest experiences of my life and I hope to have many more….as I fall further down this here rabbit hole…….

SD. com: Do you have a favorite brand of drums or cymbals?

Danny: Ludwig drums and Zildjian cymbals. I love Zildjian! On my last recording I used an 80 year old turkish ride that my Dad played when he was a young lad.



SD. com: If you could give one piece of advice to young drummers, it would be…

Danny: DO NOT LISTEN TO ANYONE. For the longest time I was too worried about what other people thought made a good drummer. From how fast a drummer should be to what he should look like when he plays and what brands to play. To hell with that. Do your own thing and you will be able to play with a lot more freedom.
