If you want to see an epic theatrical performance on the drums, you’ve come to the right place.

Ryan Van Poederooyen says that the Devin Townsend album Deconstruction is “probably the craziest thing I’ve ever recorded.”

The fourth track, “Planet Of The Apes”, is an 11-minute saga that gets progressively more intense as it takes you on a wild ride from start to finish. It really doesn’t feel like an 11-minute song!

If you like progressive metal drumming – or even prog rock and odd time playing – this is the performance for you.
