Zach Hill is one monster of a drummer, and Music Radar agrees naming him one of the Top 10 New Drum Heroes. He's not new to Sargent House's Top 10 Drum Heroes, he's had that honor for a long time. Speaking of Zach look out for the new EP from Bygones called Spiritual Bankruptcy coming soon on Sargent House. Check out what MusicRadar had to say below...
"To watch Zach Hill is exhausting. To copy him would be suicidal. Topless and slick with perspiration, a cyclone of hair and sinew, fusing berserker power with surgical accuracy, he is the human fill.
When the self-taught 30-year-old takes the stool – and that's pretty often, between his day job with California math-rockers Hella and his endless array of West Coast side-projects – it's a sensory overload. Jaws hang slack in the moshpit at his frantic snare work, slip-sliding time signatures and killer kick technique (it sounds like he's got two bass drums – he hasn't).
By the end, his hands are raw, the kit is sobbing, and the audience is spent. But you'll still want more."
