God, this song gets my motor running. Still one of, if not THE best, metal songs ever recorded. That guitar coming in over the drums in the intro is so grindingly epic.

If you think the studio work by preist is great….go see them in concert…these guys will leave you a quivering pool of drool

I'm a metalhead and that was pretty much the same reaction that I had when I first heard this song!

Hey, I am a drummer. When the singer is screaming “Painkiller” the drummer is making those fast drum notes with his feet. That’s right, his feet is doing that. It’s called the double bass sixteenth note triplets rhythm.

That drummer is named Scott Travis. He was one of the more talented 'mainstream' metal drummers at the time. There are much faster and more technical drummers out there now. Check out a guy by the name of Dirk Verbueren on drums in the band Soilwork. A good example of fast and technical drumming in one song would be Soilwork's "Spectrum of Eternity (Official Single version). Sit back and take it in, brother! 4 minutes of pure insanity https://youtu.be/1dN-aX6-Wjo

The drummer is a man named Scott Fuck Mothering Travis and he's using two bass drums (and logically, his FEET) to achieve that machine gun bass sound. He's kind of a big name in drumming.
