I was set to disagree with your assertion that drum solos can be excruciatingly boring, but then I watched the video. The guy has a nice kit but it’s kinda like driving an Indy car to church on Sunday. I kept waiting for him to tear it up and it never happened. I’ve never been keen on jazz drumming though so my opinion isn’t worth much. I was reminded of the Buddy Rich vs Jerry Lewis drum battle from like 1964 or ’65.
The main reason that I love(d) Nu-Metal was the absence of the traditional formatted song with mandatory guitar solo. Guitar solos as we knew them were gone. That didn’t last long enough.
That Scarified song was pretty good though.
