Thumbs up: +4
IMPORTANT NOTIVE: I just realized that I have counted some songs featuring very fast triplets wrong, counting 8th notes and multiplying them with 1.333 as opposed to 1.5, so some songs have a nps too low. Fixing it, but I still may have accidentally skipped some.

I metronomed these and many more to make a definite double-bass chart. BUT IT'S NOT EVEN NEARLY FINISHED YET, so make suggestions.
These are the studio versions, but I often point out if the a live version is different. Also, small rolls don't count. The track must have 16 consecutive hits for it to be listed.
Many of the songs are ones found in Youtube's "TOP 10 FASTEST DOUBLE BASS EVER" to clarify, that most of them were actually NOT that fast at all. I mean, yes they are fast, but not the fastest.
Also, no drum-machines, only real people. According to Wall Street Journal (http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304591604579288531126033944) many bands edit their studio releases ridiculously, and while I have my doubts about some entries on my list, I still list a song if a drummer is credited for the percussive work. It's unfortunate, if they lie, but I can't take responsibilty for that.
In many cases, though, it is all human, and while Aaron Kitcher and Hellhammer for example use some not-that-old-school methods for their playing, it is still them and not a damn machine.

Bands that I need to go through more:
Putridity
Lust of Decay
Brain Drill
Disavowed
Hate Eternal
Spawn Of Possession
Gorod
Lost Soul

After 18.5 nps, almost every performance is somehow cheated. Triggering ain't that much of a cheat, since the sound would be a bloody mess without, but double strokes etc. seem to be the only way to go.
UNLESS you are Hannes Grossman or George Kollias. They pretty much only use triggering for productional purposes and have demonstrated their ability of single untriggered single-strokes on their vids. Also, I'm pretty sure that Romain Goulon, Fotis, Inferno, Vyl, Kevin Foley and Daray could do something similar, though I have no definite proof.

On Hellhammer I must say that he's a complete cheater, but that just makes him great; on every aspect on his playing he is always coming up with techniques to ease his playing. Composition-wise he's a great guy, but TRVV KVLT DABBLÖ BÄZZ METVL-wise not that much.
Heka69 - 04.06.2012 at 10:06  
Just saw that Mauro Mercurio has vids of himself playing 20.5 nps at Youtube. Worth mentioning.
Oaken - 01.11.2012 at 23:59  
I'm surprised there's no Anaal Nathrakh in there.
Vombatus - 02.11.2012 at 00:32  
^it's a machine, and I doubt the live version is just as fast.
psykometal - 02.11.2012 at 09:05  
Kinda surprised no Tim Yeung (Divine Heresy) or Trey Williams (Dying Fetus). Should also look into Jordan Varela (Lust of Decay) and Davide "Brutal Dave" Billia (Putridity).

I'm surprised there's no Anaal Nathrakh in there.

Anaal Nathrakh use blastbeats primarily, which use a snare/high-hat/bass drum combination, meaning there won't be any ridiculous speed double bass.... usually

I agree with you!!



it's a drum machine on the albums, like someone mentioned earlier.
Seonadh - 14.11.2013 at 14:45  
What about Vemodets Arkitektur by Shining (Sweden)? I think it's Hellhammer on that album. Fast as fuck, but most impressive because the double kick parts last for minutes at a time. Not sure if they ever played the song live though...

What about Vemodets Arkitektur by Shining (Sweden)?

Added.

Anaal Nathrakh is, as said, mostly blast beats not that much of straight 16th's on pedals, but I'll see if I find something. Still, it's 250 bpm (16.666 nps) at max, so no top 10 there. And, if I have understood correctly, it is as stated, a machine. Yes, they have drummer live who can play those parts (they are not tricky at all), but this list must have some sort of standarts, so that not every machine-made joke applies.
Frus77 - 26.01.2014 at 23:36  
I'm so glad someone made a list like this, but I see a few errors.
Ingested - Incranial Semen Injection, I metronomed this to 260
My fears have become phobias i got 16th trips on 150, which is 15 notes per second.
I guess my biggest concern about this list is the credibility of some of these drummers. Such as Aaron Kitcher (who really has no proof of going that fast other than a play-along version of cuntcrusher, which was just a play-along. There were no mics.) Iwrestledabearonce (you can obviously tell that that was not real. There's not way that guy is faster than Hellhammer and George Kollias) And I sort of question the credibility of Francesco Paoli from Fleshgod. I know I sound like a George Kollias fanboy, but a lot of these drummers are not a credible as GK. He has quite a few DVDs all about double bass drumming and his Youtube page is full of live videos and studio videos. Just my two cents, but I do like this list though.

Ingested - Incranial Semen Injection, I metronomed this to 260
My fears have become phobias i got 16th trips on 150, which is 15 notes per second.
I guess my biggest concern about this list is the credibility of some of these drummers. Such as Aaron Kitcher (who really has no proof of going that fast other than a play-along version of cuntcrusher, which was just a play-along. There were no mics.) Iwrestledabearonce (you can obviously tell that that was not real. There's not way that guy is faster than Hellhammer and George Kollias) And I sort of question the credibility of Francesco Paoli from Fleshgod. I know I sound like a George Kollias fanboy, but a lot of these drummers are not a credible as GK. He has quite a few DVDs all about double bass drumming and his Youtube page is full of live videos and studio videos. Just my two cents, but I do like this list though.

The fast parts are around 3:04 or something, but near the end nonethless.

Correct. I did not even listen it that closely. When I saw it on top like 5 top-speed videos, I assumed it to be 32th's. Thanks man.

On your other remark, Paoli is all double strokes and the session drummer for Fleshgod used to be the ex-drummer for Hour of Penance; Mauro Mercurio. He (Marco), however, has a video of himself playing 320 on youtube, and, naturally, I can't find it.
I, myself, have faith in Kitcher, and the others as well. I have done a list like this, so you could guess that a thing like is close to my heart, and that would be right. Being a drummer myself, I can play clearly on my double-pedal on a single triggered bass drum so that the trigger is able register each note at 290 bmp. After that I run into problems.
That being said, my setup is much less professional than the guys' on my list, so 300bpm on two bass-drums does not seem impossible at all. I'm actually surprised, why the are so few songs at those speeds.

Now Christian Giusto he's the fastest drummer in list with 310bpm real drumming, here's the video and he don't use quadruple crap pedals or other fake drumming systems.

"As Icicles Fall" by Ne Obliviscaris should make this list.

Holy crap that dude is inhuman! Man, them Italians sure know how to play retarded fast. That guy, Francesco Paoli, Simone Piras, Mauro Mercurio, Francesco Struglia, Davide Billia, and I know there are more I'm not thinking of right now... lol

You should probably check out Delusional Parasitosis, a friend of mine plays drums for them and they have parts up to 26nps double bass. He plays standard heel-toe technique and is capable up to 30 nps. Standard double pedal guy, but completely insane.
Here is a live drumcam of him:

Great list by the way, gives some insight to what I haven´t listen to yet but still have to!
