    Any Aquiles Priester fans?

    Speaking of drums and drummers..anyone else into the drumming of Aquiles Priester? I had never heard of him but one of his videos popped in my YouTube feed many months ago and I was blown away. I haven't heard anyone play drums in the style of Portnoy during his prime DT years but this guy's amazing.

    I started following the guy on Instagram and he just seems like a down to earth guy (much like Portnoy back in the day). The only problem, for me at least, is that he's brazilian so his posts are primarily in Portuguese I would be *SO* stoked if he teamed up with Toontrack to come up with an expansion pack or MIDI library.

    YES. I loved him in ANGRA with Kiko Loureiro & Rafael Bittencourt.

    My favorite Power Metal band, brilliant. Their best albums are "Rebirth" and "Temple of Shadows" which that first song you posted is off of.

    I met him when I saw him with Tony Macalpine and he was such a nice guy.

    He also got to audition for Dream Theater.
    If anyone has any prayer requests, need to talk, or have questions about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    Feel free to message me.

    God Bless, Venator

    Not big fan of his bands but I like watching him play because he beats the drums so hard. I wish I could play like that
