(alternate title could have been "Because Two Singers Isn't Enough", in reference to Monuments, but fewer people would have gotten it, and technically this is Periphery )
Yeah, it was definitely tight. I just didn't know why they were doing it.They were on tour together, and goofed around on it during sound check, and decided to do it during the show :shrug: It'd be pretty cool to see in person
Holy shit, another person who knows who Course of Empire is! :metal:Me loves me some doubled drums (which is not the same as layered drums mind you). Not to let all the cats out of the proverbial bag, but The Surfacing might have nabbed the dual drumming thing from Course Of Empire a bit:

YouTube - Course Of Empire "The Information"
@ 3:26 :agreed:
Also, dig up 'Delicate Sound Of Thunder' live from P.F. Another fine example of doubled drums, particularly on 'Yet Another Movie / Around And Around / Sorrow'.
That's the way it is with guitars too though. I'm not saying it's not difficult, because you do have to be really tight.The Allman Brothers have had two drummers for 40 years now. It's a tough thing to pull off. Doing it in metal would be even tougher. Both drummers have to be tightly in sync and carefully work out the arrangements, or it would get very messy.
That and they have to agree on who takes which fills, etc. Guitarists can improvise a fair bit during live performance and still deliver a cohesive presentation. Definitely an exercise in coordination for drummers, though if, as in the Allman Brothers, they play together for 40 years... it's probably easy as pie to them.No doubt about that, but I'm guessing it's even tougher for drummers, since any slop with them is going to absolutely tear things apart.
