Abigail Williams ex drummer Samus

Samus Paulicelli playing Empyrean

Derek Wiedenheft
holy shit I can't believe after 10 years I finally found you again, Im excited.
Grant Bowen
Oddly enough, I never knew Samus was their drummer at one point but I've always loved his channel and recently I got into Abigail Williams and thought "I'd love to see Samus do a cover of some of their stuff," fucking weird

I figured it out and i see right through you Samus: You see i always wondered why this video has a special "Green Tint" to it and now i know why. Just like in the movie "The Matrix" everything IN the Matrix has a green tint as opposed to real life, and since you wrote the drum track but couldn't complete in real life because your sticks and drum kit would just ignite on fire so you "Entered the Matrix" recorded this video and uploaded it so it would finally be complete. Yeah nice try.

There will never be a metronome as precise as Samus
Davon Corrie
I love this vid. Never gets old
This never gets old!
this is just purely beautiful metal drumming...i got no other words for that
Nate Horst
omg that grav blast is too good
Crazy to think this is 10 years ago goddamn lol

I'm assuming it means Decrepit Birth, since he is currently their drummer.
hey Samus, what is DB means? i search in google but it come out "Deutsche Bank". i know it's not related with you, but i really want you to go back to Abigail Williams no matter what. Since you left the band, they become lack of power of drum.
Captain Chloroform
If musicians were Actually paid based on their talent, Samus would be swimming in piles just like Scrooge McDuck.
Mordecai Pants
DDAAAWWWWMMM!!!!!!!!. that is all :)
He's one of the most succesful extreme metal youtube drummers though, look at the viewcount. Some fancy ass 5 multi-angle poprock drummers with makeup and fancy showboat tricks can be jealous on that.
Theres always gotta be those 4 jack offs who dislike. Fuck em
Thank you very much! And to answer your question, I am not sure. It really depends on if there is a demand for the band there. You would have to ask Matt. He runs the DB facebook page.
haha, absolutely true bud. i am a drummer myself, and i want to, one day, get close to what you have achieved. im a big fan! However, i still got a long way to go, lol. On a side note though, what are the chances of Decrepit Birth coming to Dubai, Emirates?
I have toured with Francesco numerous times. He is a fucking awesome drummer, and a wonderful guy. He can do the insanely fast double strokes with his feet, that I will never be able to do. But...who the fuck cares who is faster? This isn't kindergarten. Ha.
Cheers from Poland \m/
it's back to zero, his drumming has reversed the space time continuum.
The clarity and tone come from the triggers dude
Garrin Beaudoin
triggers! gotta love it
i think Francesco is a bit faster though, they are both beasts though no doubt
kamiel driss
in two words man you rock
June Viarruel
i clapped
Haven't listened to this in a while, and honestly, it's a masterpiece of drumming. Great speed, clarity, accuracy, tone, the fills and cymbal work is fucking great. Honestly Samus is probably one of the most under appreciated drummers in metal.
Now 40...
Raúl Fernández
Hello.Great playing!!.I have one question. What triggers you use for the toms?and what sound module?Thanks
Eddie F430
I'd love it
Sudeep Antony
Freaking Awsome
Son Goku
People don't grasp the concept of triggers. It's so you can hear the double bass with clarity and definition, otherwise it'd be just noise. Do some research.
said it once and I'll say it again Sick As FUCK!!
eliott lipscombe
I'd hate to live next to this guy....
Angel Baez
I would never get tired of this video!
Cannibal Christ
@hhertherthrt i didnt fucking steal, nor can i not play. I've played drums and guitar for 11 years. the fact that you took a non-insulting comment so seriously over the internet is rediculous. dont even bother replying, I'm not wasting my time arguing with some insecure idiot on youtube.
Makes it look easy, doesn't he?
Cannibal Band
It's not an opinion, you need to fucking learn how to spell bass. it's a fact.
Cannibal Band
learn to spell bass first... lol
Alexander Walker
Worst drum tone ever.
Thatdrummerguy McGee
I want ur kit!!!!!!!
Rob Rojas
Dude you are a beast on the kit.
You dont need mics to trigger. Educate yourself before you flap your jib.
he is currently the drummer for Decrepit Birth
Jorge Yan
you forgot level asian.
See this is when Abigail Williams had more element into them, more creativity, and more... well samus
Jason Norkeveck
where is this guy from?? i think i see him at a guitar center all the time..
watch this video if you still dont understand p4NQO5gofrg
I just told you. A mic outputs the sound coming into the mic. A trigger outputs a 'click' sound. Mic's CAN be used to with a sound module (either a physical item or a computer application) but he doesn't have mics on here, just triggers. You're getting confused with the difference between the word 'triggered' and an actual trigger. Search drum trigger in google.
nah brah, mics and triggers are both different things. triggers just output a 'click' sound and are connected to a sample module or computer. maybe they are mics on there but they look like triggers, and we can only hear samples.
yeah, no mics, just triggers on there
Jonathan M
My favorite drumming vid ever. Anyone got any recommendations.
Andre Forero
yeah, i know pearl is the only one that makes square racks. i have 2 bass drums and a 3 sided gibralter rack and its so hard for me to get things set uo the way i want it.
Drumrack would be the word, looks a lot like a rack Pearl makes, although I don't see any company badges.
Liam Harlow
Sounds just like the faceless. I wouldn't have known the difference unless the title said so... Lol
Andre Forero
anyone know the name of the cage he is using? I've been trying to find it, i know its pearl?
Siggy Sigmon
he's actually from the future, went back in time to when drums were invented said "i got this" and has been playing ever since
dude.. u make me love drums . + 100 likes !
jesus christ.... i cant imagine who you look up to
And where is Asian level :D
when i listen to Francesco Paoli, i think of this guy
Et Tu Beartus
see this is why i maintain that metal musicians are among the best in the world, there's very few musicians in say Pop, Rap, RnB etc that could keep up with their speed, technique and coordination or even maintain it for an entire show.
Joey O'Neil
to bad he can't write drum parts for shit
The Red Comet
Well the other thing about triggers is because the sensor pad is so sensitive, you don't have to hit the beaters as hard making it a little easier to be able to play faster without sacrificing power. The speed is all in the drummer tho
A place of death.
one foot blast? :D
@Vasherin thanx dude
What r triggers? And what's wrong w having triggers?
You forgot Asian, which is 4 tiers above samus XD
Joe Lupo
did you play with arsis? i think i saw you live with them opening for firewind
and you'd expect him to have more brolic biceps
Sean Mason
Drummers should be respected more.Look at the intensity of the drumming...Simply awesome.Killer shit...blew me away.

Triggers, triggers everywhere

2 hours in a concert with this it's not human
Matt Keating
That was beautiful gravity blasts towards the end I love how you toss the splashes in. You are great with your wrists man. I love your symbol work! Great techniques! Double thumbs up.
The Anarchist
are you friggin kidding me? this is physically impossible! theres no way. all my friends say the same thing about you in this video. 66samus you are so awesome it angers me, and i dont even play drums as much a i play guitar. when you did that 32nd or whatever with one hand at 5:43 my friend threw his drumsticks across the room. that was just... theres no word to describe the awesomeness.
I watched this video around 14 times in the last 24 hours....such a pleasure to simply watch Samus moving. Lots of Lombardo-type fills, brilliantly incorporated in killer blast-beat driven composition :) I really, really, really like this, although I kinda dislike AW's music as a whole. Well done, Samus, keep up the good work :)
Avery Brunson
@66Samus haha wish i could play like you... i sort of suck and have a 4 piece kit... but im building on it getting double pedal for xmas
@iwidebikez dude i love you
Avery Brunson
Beginner easy medium hard expert god chuck norris satan samus
Learn how to play before recording videos!
@moshsanatory You have a good point there, but you should really watch Bonham play "Rock & Roll" live during their live film "The Song Remains The Same". Trust me on this - I've yet to see any other drummer play that song right. Straight, constant eighth-notes on kick, snare and hats at a tempo of probably around 180bpm, but with the accents in the right places to make it sound like a steady 4/4 beat. Basically, the proto-blast beat. Which is why he's still such an influence on drummers.
3:15....I totally came...and that one handed roll at the end....priceless
36 people is the bass getting pwned constantly by samus
Lucas Balcerek
why so many triggers? Sounds crap! Triggers for bass fine but toms sounds terrible! (No offence)
35 people dnt knw what is drumming :S
Christina Chavez
If only Samus and Derek Roddy would have offspring, this world would be ruled by death metal
Abigail Williams is brutal as fuck. And music is music. Lol. If any metal heads wanna check out a Pittsburgh death band, check my band Indecent Demise out. We have some songs/vids on YouTube and Facebook and our EP is free to download. Check us out! We'd love to hear what you have to say.
@ShittyMcPoopyBalls it´s on voice.
@Kevinkoch2443 Is that a drum kit setting?
@ShittyMcPoopyBalls No problem! Little tip on the trigger sample, use the plastiqe sample number 009 and put some eq on it and you will be blown away!
@Kevinkoch2443 Thanks alot! I'll look into those AKG's!! I totally understand how to do this now! Thanks for the help!
