Drum Cover Fisheye – Samyang 7.5 mm 3.5 Fisheye for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark 2

With Canon 60D I’ve used Samyang 8 mm as my fisheye lens. Obviously, I needed a fisheye for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark 2, and I had three options: Samyang 7.5 mm 3.5, Panasonic 8 mm 3.5 and Olympus 8 mm 1.8. It wasn’t an easy choice, but I ended up choosing Samyang 7.5 fisheye.

Olympus 8 mm 1.8 is definitely the best of these three, but it also costs the most. For the price of one Olympus one could buy 4 Samyangs, so I just couldn’t afford it right. […] Read more!

New drum cover: Blink-182 – Please Take Me Home

Hello friends! Time to write about drumming once again. A while ago we uploaded a new drum cover that I’m actually pretty proud of. At the beginning of the whole idea of drum covering, I wanted to test my skills in playing the tougher Blink-182 songs. I guess I also wanted to demonstrate the amazing talent Travis Barker really has in his grooves. To be able to play Blink with drums is not to eat a piece of cake. […] Read more!

The story of a drum stick, starring me as a fan girl

Here I am, having a relaxing weekend, time to scrape some blog text! First of all, I have a new drum cover out in case you haven’t noticed. This time we’re serving some All Time Low, the song being one of the many cool tunes off from their latest album Don’t Panic. And by cool I’m foremostly meaning the drum parts. As I have mentioned earlier, I love how the ATL-drummer Rian Dawson has kept his drumming genuine and complex during the years of the band evolving from a small pop punk band to a world-known rock band.

New drum cover: Blink-182 – Stockholm Syndrome

Here I am again with another Travis Barker drum cover. We uploaded this one yesterday, and it got a nice ammount of comments straight away. So thanks for them – seems like people really like to follow the occasional the Blink-covers I do. This one’s Stockholm Syndrome from the self-titled album:

To be honest, this one was filmed at the end of last year. We’ve had quite a bunch of covers awaiting for publishing. This song is one of those filler songs for drum cover filming sessions. […] Read more!

New drum cover: Musta Barbaari – Salil eka salil vika

Howdy! Been a while since the last drum cover. The reason being this one time-consuming competition we had. But now that it’s over we’re finally back to the routine of doing all this stuff including new songs, gigs and of course the drum covers! It felt surprisingly good to be back behind the drums after the UMK-competition. Even though I sat behind the very same Ddrum-kit on the TV-shows as well, the playback-shit got pretty boring.

New drum cover: Blink-182 – Online Songs

Just recently we uploaded a new drum video. It’s one of the several covers we filmed and recorded a few weeks ago. Seems like I still haven’t ran out of Blink-182 songs to cover, so here’s another Travis Barker classic. The Blink album Take Off Your Pants And Jacket has THE best sounding drums ever made. Actually we try to mimic that namely drum sound on our own recordings too. In addition to the sound, Barker’s playing on that record is also top notch. […] Read more!

New drum cover: 2Pac – Changes

Hiya folks, it’s me with the drum covers again. It hasn’t been a long time since the last drum cover came out. While doing that, we actually filmed and recorded quite a bunch of drum covers in a row. Just to get the publishing schedule a bit tighter. So here’s the second video from the mentioned session:

Wait a sec, it’s not Blink or All Time Low?! Sorry to ruin your hopes for yet another Travis or Rian version, but I’ve been trying to find something else to cover, too. […] Read more!

New drum cover: Blink-182 – After Midnight

As some of you might already have noticed, we uploaded a fresh new drum cover this weekend! The man I’m covering is the same old dude called Travis, but I just can’t get enough of his drumming. In an inspirational way he’s a bottomless well of good ideas.

Here it is, After Midnight from Neighborhoods album!

Travis relies a lot on rudimentary chops. As a matter of fact, this song required me to rehearse some double stroke rolls in order to get the hihat lick right. […] Read more!

That’s right folks, and you can hear me tweeting on my Twitter channel @OttoMadCraft! Follow me to get information about playing drums and making drum covers. Besides that the only purpose for my channel seems to be to upload absurd pictures of me or my drums.

I’m a bit outsider when it comes to social media. I guess I’m social enough outside of the web or just lazy to make accounts. Tom kept insisting on me to open a Twitter account due to the growing following of my drum videos we post on YouTube. […] Read more!

Kohta ois Loose!

No mutta hei! Se on huhtikuu kohta lopuillaan, joten tarvii nyt ees jotain päivitystä pistää, ettei jää ihan kokonaan tää kuukausi blogaamatta. Ollaan tässä viimeaikoina treenattu uusia biisejä ja viilattu tota yhtä uutta jo nauhotettua julkasukuntoon. Pikkuhiljaa alkais olee miksaus siinä kunnossa, että pitäis enää video kuvata. Sen osalta ollaan pienessä taiteellisessa solmussa mutta ehkä se tästä pikkuhiljaa aukee, kun aurinkokin alkaa paistaa kasvavissa määrin.

Tänään kuitenki tarvii reenata timanttinen livesetti, jonka muodostamisessa on kyllä tän kevään osalta päästy aika hyvään tahtiin.
