The youngest drummer to make this list has undoubtedly earned it through his work with space-rock power trio Muse.
Behind singer Matt Bellamy’s often operatic songs and the band’s theatrical arrangements, Dom’s beats underpin proceedings solidly but with no small amount of flair. His power and groove effectively fill out the trio’s music, helping them sound truly huge. With each of Muse’s albums, Dom’s sound has evolved along with that of the band.
Embracing electronics too, and keeping pace with the band’s ambitious scope that’s encompassed everything from funk-rock to space rock to dubstep and Queen-style bombast, Dom proves himself time and again to be one of the UK’s best and most versatile drummers.
