It's time to launch Round 2 of our Greatest Metal Drummer competition! Having started off with 32 of metal music's all-time best Skin Bashers and Technical Masters, we're down to 16 competitors after the conclusion of the first round.

Some of the genre's biggest names remain in the competition, as do hardcore fan favorites who have perfected their craft over the decades. The decisions are tougher, the rivalries are more intense and fan passion will continue to grow as we continue our bracket into Round 2.
