This is the first interview of my new mini-series for This Day In Metal, where I will be focusing on extreme metal drummers.

Last week (Friday the 6th May) I had the pleasure of nerding out about being a drummer, with the amazingly talented and dedicated drummer Jeff Saltzman. At the age of 27, he’s already mastered the art of extreme metal drumming and continues to perfect his technique and evolve his drumming style.

We spoke about how he started playing drums, the 3 bands he’s currently a part of, his opinion on the ever-controversial snare drum tone on Metallica’s St. Anger album and more! Check out the full interview below…
