Had a riff in a song recently, went off it and decided to replace it with something I liked more. Thought the new riff was ******* excellent, just what I was after, really punky, but still heavy.
But just couldn't work out why it didn't sound right, thought I would chuck it and do another re-write but then when I was drifting off to sleep last night I realised that it was 'cos I still had the drums from the origianl riff! and they were all wrong for the new one. Anyone ever done that? While they were both 4/4 and the same tempo is was all wrong! Didn't sound like how I was hearing it in my head.

it can make a kicking riff sound puss.
IMO, for metal, the drums absolutley can make or brake anysong.
im a syncopation man myself, i like to have as much going on as possible with all instruments.
