Hannes Grossmann | Alkaloid - In Turmoil's Swirling Reaches (drum playthrough)

   PlaythroughAlkaloidHannes Grossmann

For quite some time Hannes Grossmann has been considered a very special drummer, who combines playing technique and sound in a way where musical character always comes first.

Hannes is member of the band ALKALOID, who put out their second album "Liquid Anatomy" in May 2018. We were lucky enough to produce this playthrough video for the song „In Tumoil’s Swirling Reaches“, in which you'll be able to witness Hannes' unique melodic flair - after technical parts played with robotic precision, the song then shifts into moody spheres which need all the sensitivity a skilled musician can offer.

Hannes Grossmann (Alkaloid, Blotted Science, Ex-Obscura, Ex-Necrophagist).

Hannes is endorsed by Tama Drums, Meinl Cymbals, Evans Drumhead, Vic Firth sticks and Rode Microphones.
