Tim Yeung is an extreme metal drummer. He was born on November 27, 1978 in Rochester, New York and relocated to Los Angeles, California. Yeung started playing drums, he attended Hochstein School of Music in Rochester, New York and graduated in 1995. He was first introduced to the death metal genre in the 1980s, his breakout performance was in 1999 on Hate Eternal's debut Conquering the Throne, after which he became a big name in the death metal scene. Although he left Hate Eternal after the release of Conquering the Throne, he started lending his talents as a live session drummer, such as with American metalcore band All That Remains and death metal bands Vital Remains and Nile, as a studio drummer, such as on... And Time Begins by California-based technical death metal band Decrepit Birth. Yeung was the drummer and co-founder for the death metal/metalcore band Divine Heresy, can be heard on their debut album Bleed The Fifth and their second studio album, Bringer of Plagues, he was the drummer of World Under Blood, CKY frontman Deron Miller's death metal side project.
He replaced Pete Sandoval in Morbid Angel for their 2011 album Illud Divinum Insanus due to Sandoval's back surgery and was their official drummer until June 2015. He performs in a band called I Am Morbid, which features former vocalist/bassist David Vincent. In 2006, Yeung hit 872 bass drum hits in one minute at a World's Fastest Drummer competition, which earned him the Fastest Feet Title for that event, though not the world record, which clocked in at 1034 hits in one minute, held by Canadian drummer Mike Mallais. By Yeung's standards, 872 hits in a minute is comparatively low, translating to one minute of 16th notes at 218 BPM, slower than the speeds he has displayed in his group work, which he has been said to get to speeds of around just over 247 BPM. Yeung has stated in interviews that he could have played much faster if he had been using his own setup. Although he is best known as a drummer for brutal death metal bands such as Hate Eternal and Decrepit Birth, Yeung has stated that he has diverse tastes.
In the January 2008 issue of Drum! magazine, Yeung states "...if it has a good drummer it's good music." His straddling of the extreme and mainstream is best reflected in his work with Divine Heresy, whose music features elements of extreme death metal as well as genres such as metalcore and industrial metal. Yeung is a close business colleague of film producer/musician Pascual Romero. Yeung endorses ddrum drums, Sabian cymbals, Axis pedals and Vic Firth drumsticks.

Alex Webster is an American bass player, best known as a member of the death metal band Cannibal Corpse. He is one of two current members who were of the original lineup of the band, the other being drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz, he is the bassist for the band Blotted Science and the supergroup Conquering Dystopia, before Cannibal Corpse was formed he was part of Beyond Death. Webster was born in New York, he has stated "I just always liked music. Music was always a soundtrack in my head to things going on in my life. I always wanted to play. I wanted to play drums. I hit it with tinker toys. I was going to make music. Most people who are musicians didn't have to have anyone tell them to do it. I would never push music on someone. If you're going to make music, you're going to make it."Webster was of the band Beyond Death, with ex-Cannibal Corpse guitarist Jack Owen, back in 1987. Both met up with Chris Barnes, Bob Rusay and Paul Mazurkiewicz, all of whom were in the band Tirant Sin, he was the one to come up with Cannibal Corpse.
In an interview he said that he thought it was a catchy name for a band. He has a reputation for being friendly to his fans asking questions, genuinely caring what his fans think answering questions on the band's forum. Alex recorded bass for Hate Eternal, Erik Rutan's death metal band. Erik is the producer for Cannibal Corpse's albums that were released between 2006 and 2012, Evisceration Plague, Torture. In 2005, Alex was contacted by guitarist Ron Jarzombek about a possible collaboration which became Blotted Science, an all-instrumental extreme metal project, they released their debut album, The Machinations of Dementia, in the fall of 2007. When asked about his favorite Cannibal Corpse song, Webster answered: "I don't know, it would be hard to choose one that's the "best", but one of my favorites is "From Skin to Liquid" because it was so different for us, it showed we didn't have to be playing at warp drive and have gory lyrics to be heavy." Webster is recognized as an experienced and talented metal bass player.
He can play at exceptionally fast speeds, does a signature 3-finger walk. He revealed in a making-of DVD for Cannibal Corpse's album The Wretched Spawn that he started playing guitar but changed to bass because he felt he could master the instrument more quickly. Unlike usual heavy metal bassists that play at high speeds, Webster is able to play his instrument without the use of a pick, while still retaining a clean clear tone, which helps maintain clarity in the complex and fast lines he plays in conjunction with the distorted guitars of Cannibal Corpse. "When I was six years old I took some acoustic guitar lessons. It didn't work out because I was six and didn't want to learn "Mary Had a Little Lamb," and those were the kind of songs I was being taught. I wanted to play Elvis. I liked all the old 50s music. My dad had a bunch of old 50s records; those were what I listened to, because when you're six you don't have the money to go buy stuff, so I just listened to his records. Nobody was going to teach me.
I just gave it up until I was 13 or 14. I met a kid in school, he wanted to make some extra money and it was five bucks a lesson. He did a good job too, his name was Mike Hudson. I don't know. I lost touch with him. He's the one. I always wanted to play in a band, to learn how to play lead guitar was going to take like five years, but I liked the sound of the bass. I figured I could do that. I thought I could learn Cliff Williams' bass parts faster than I could learn to play Angus Young's guitar parts, it was motivation. I never wanted to play music by myself. I wanted to play with other people, the fastest route to, playing an instrument that wasn't a lead instrument, bass was that. Now I've learned to make it a lot more difficult. I've made my job a lot harder than it needs to be, but it's just fun. In the beginning my concern was playing in a band.""I took some lessons from a friend of mine when I first started. He was in the school jazz band and he taught me the basics. I didn't take lessons for about a year.
I've had about four different teachers throughout the years, but I never took lessons for more than a few months. I did, gain a lot from them and I've tried to learn as much on my own as I can. Anything I can learn about music or bass playing, I'll try to learn. I mean, the more you learn and the more you apply to your playing, it just makes you a better musician."”I liked the bass player from AC/DC. I loved the stuff he did. Peter Baltes from Accept was another. I liked the good guys too, but that seemed out of reach at the beginning. Geddy Lee from Rush and Steve Harris were like gods to me. Billy Sheehan was from Buffalo, we all knew about Billy before the rest of the country did. Billy has been a legend in Buffalo for a long time. He's still one of my favorites. By the time I was listening to Cliff Burton I was getting a little better. I had been playing a year or so before I started listening to Metallica. I thought. I always thought. That's the thing. In thrash metal or any other kind of metal where the bass is playing wha

Morbid Angel is an American death metal band based in Tampa, Florida formed in 1983 by guitarist and sole remaining original member Trey Azagthoth and bassist Dallas Ward, drummer Mike Browning. Considered as one of the most influential bands in the genre and important in the transition of death metal from its thrash metal roots, they were one of the first bands to incorporate guttural vocals, up-tempo blast beats, multiple tempo changes and dark atmosphere, they have been described as one of "the most influential and emulated bands in death metal", alongside Obituary and Cannibal Corpse, have been cited as an influence by many bands. They were the first death metal band to experience mainstream success in connection with being signed to Giant Records in 1992, heavy rotation of their music videos on MTV, having the music video for the song "God of Emptiness" shown on an episode of Beavis and Butt-head, their first four albums – Altars of Madness, Blessed Are the Sick and Domination – are considered classics in the genre.
British music magazine Terrorizer ranked Altars of Madness first in its list "Top 40 greatest death metal albums". Decibel magazine rated guitarist Trey Azagthoth as the number one "death metal guitarist ever"; the band's songs are complex in arrangement, owing to the considerable technical skills of both Azagthoth as well as drummer Pete Sandoval, the latter of whom played in the grindcore band Terrorizer. According to Nielsen SoundScan, Morbid Angel is the third best-selling death metal band in the United States, with their third album Covenant being the best-selling death metal album during the beginning of the Soundscan era time with over 150,000 units sold; the band's original lyrical themes, when helmed by Vincent focused on Satanism and anti-Christian subject matter, but from Formulas Fatal to the Flesh onward, via Azagthoth's influence, the lyrics moved toward the ancient Sumerian gods. Much of this is a nod to the Simon Necronomicon, influenced by Sumerian mythology, the author H. P. Lovecraft, fascination with the Roman Empire, during Steve Tucker's tenure they take on more anti-religious and barbaric themes, namely of the strong overcoming the weak.
Their albums are notable for being released in alphabetical order, with guitarist Trey Azagthoth commenting that it was a coincidence regarding the first two albums, but that it has been done consciously since then. Morbid Angel was formed in 1983 in Tampa, Florida by guitarist Trey Azagthoth and drummer/vocalist Mike Browning; the band made their debut in 1987 on the New Renaissance Records record label. They recorded their debut album, Abominations of Desolation, in 1986, but the band was unsatisfied with the final product and it remained unreleased until 1991, printing 10,000 copies. In the early stages of their career the band developed a reputation for "gruesome stage antics." In 1986, David Vincent joined the band, replacing Michael Manson and Sterling von Scarborough as vocalist and bassist respectively. Fellow Terrorizer drummer Pete Sandoval soon followed, their first studio album, Altars of Madness, was released in 1989, is regarded by many as one of the most important death metal albums of all time.
It is considered the first true death metal album. Music journalist Jason Birchmeier writes that:Few albums struck a chord within the ears and minds of the late-'80s underground metal scene like Morbid Angel's Altars of Madness did at the end of the decade, setting a new precedent for metal bands to reach. With the arguable exception of Chuck Schuldiner's Death, never before had a heavy metal band carried their lightning-fast guitar riffs and spellbinding guitar solos into such horrific territory. Venom and Slayer redefined the extent to which a metal band could align itself with all things evil during the beginning of the decade, but Morbid Angel made these two groups sound like children's music compared to the Florida-based group's assaulting death metal sounds and their blasphemous lyrics. Morbid Angel toured for nearly two years in support of Altars of Madness; the tour started in November 1989 when they opened for Napalm Death and Bolt Thrower in the UK and Europe. Most of 1990 and 1991 were spent touring North America, playing with bands such as Pantera, Atheist, Death Angel, Sanctuary, Ripping Corpse, Deicide and Wrath.
The Altars of Madness tour ended in April 1991 with a Brazilian tour, supported by Sarcófago and Cambio Negro. In 1991, Morbid Angel released their second album, Blessed Are the Sick, met with widespread critical acclaim, is considered by many to be a landmark release in the death metal genre; the album differed from its predecessor. Morbid Angel toured worldwide in support of Blessed Are the Sick throughout 1991 and 1992, headlining a European tour with Sadus, Cathedral and Unleashed, a North American tour and a European tour with Entombed and Unleashed, they were one of the opening acts for Motörhead on the "Christmas Metal Meetings'91" tour, toured Australia for the first time. Following the success of Altars of Madness and Blessed Are the Sick, Morbid Angel were signed by Irving Azoff to Giant Records for one album, with the option of five more. In late 1992, second guitarist Richard Brunelle was kicked out of the band due to alleged substance abuse. On June 22, 1993 the band released their third full-length album Covenant, which went on to sell ove
