    I posted a video of Aquiles' fine playing some time ago and all I got was flaming... I love his drumming and I think he is totally underrated, but beware of all the John Mayer worshippers who will spam this thread with "NO GROOVE" comments...

    One of my all-time favorite metal drummers and seriously over-looked by the mainstream metal streams.

    Just go listen to his playing on Angra's last album... Aurora Consergens... Amazing.

    A guy I work with is from Rio and knows a bass player there who used to play with Aquiles. Gonna see if I can finagle an autograph when he goes down there next.


    Oh and Power Metal 'aint supposed to grove... it's supposed to "drive."

    Well said! I feel that way with most Metal. For example, the only 2 players I really ever hear "grooving" in a Metal context are Vinnie Paul (Pantera) and Igor Cavalera (Sepultura), but that is what the band calls for! People get on guys like George Kollias (Nile), Derek Roddy (Hate Eternal) and Dave Lombardo (Slayer)'s cases all the time for not "grooving", but this isn't John Mayer, this is METAL! The music is driving, fast, furious and energetic. Love it or hate it, today's Metal drummers are quite the talent.

    I've been a fan of his drumming for a few years now. He's a clean, tight drummer with amazing chops.

    I love the sound of those Paiste 18" Power Bell Rides!

    Yeah, that's an awesome video. The part where he opens and closes the hihat with his left hand was very cool to watch (starting at 2:35)

    Aquiles is a monster power drummer, and definitely one of the absolute top players in the power metal genre.

    Uli Kush hasn't played with Helloween since 2000. He and Roland Grapow (also from Helloween) formed Masterplan after leaving Helloween, but Uli left them in 2006. He now plays with Beautiful Sin and Ride The Sky
