Following the conclusion of our list of The Top 25 Modern Metal Drummers last month, we asked you, our beloved readers, to weigh in, and weigh-in you have: Gojira’s Mario Duplantier is the winner, with 212 votes from people who understood how to follow instructions and properly vote in the poll, and five votes from people who did not. Duplantier, you may recall, was actually #2 on our list, so it seems that the discrepancy between our tastes and your own is not that vast this time!
Other popular picks included Mastodon’s Brann Dailor (#4 on our list), Meshuggah’s Tomas Haake (#5 on our list), and Gene Hoglan (#6 on our list). In other words, it seems not as though you cats have a problem with our list so much as you would have liked to ever-so-slightly change the order in which the drummers appeared. Interesting!
So thanks to all the metalsucks.net readers who did vote for Mario!
