Drummer Matt Greiner on Zildjian Live

Matt Greiner is the drummer for August Burns Red and is also known as one of the most important and technically proficient drummers in metalcore. He also happens to be a friend, and I love being able to support his incredible talent.

His band’s latest album, Guardians, was released last Friday, and the week before he appeared on Season Two’s debut episode of Zildjian Live to perform “Pteranodon,” written by Robert Sput Searight and Mark Lettieri, with Ghost-Note.

It also happens to feature one of the most seamless and moving uses of a bass solo I’ve ever heard.
