Rob Needham, drummer with rising UK metallers Burials powers the band’s in-your-face mix of 21st Century metal and brutal 1980s hardcore. His frighteningly quick kick work, combined with his love of Van Halen, Zeppelin and the drum work of Portnoy and Peart, make him a drummer to watch out for.
“If you like bands like Architects, Devil Sold His Soul and Oh Sleeper, then you might like what we do!” he tells Rhythm this month. “I am a drummer who would rather play something tasteful within my comfort zone rather than try and stand out from the rest of the band with over-the-top theatrics.”
