TIL that the beat in "Seventeen" and others is a "D-beat"
« on: July 26, 2011, 08:42:26 pm »
I always loved this speedy drumming style and today I found out it's actually a common pattern originating from hardcore punk and actually has its own name.

I'm sure you can find it in quite a few other Machinae songs or some variations upon it if you listen closely :)

We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica
