This is a drum cover (from the TRI-cam Series) of Angels and Airwaves' insanely cool song, Valkyrie Missile. This is an edited version of the song, 3:52 long in stead of the original 6:39, it has no extended intro, as well as no second verse, second chorus and prelude to the bridge.
This is technically not at all accurate, but that wasn't the intention of the 'cover'. This is not so much a drum cover as a my personal rendition of the song :) Thanks to AvA for this brilliant song, can't wait for the second album..!!
And as for the smile when the song finally starts.. i just enjoyed it so damn much ;)

*TECHNICAL INFO*
(with my last cover series, the Overhead Series, i got an insane amount of questions about my set-up.. so here's an in detail description of how i made these covers..)
Drumkit:
Tama Superstar Custom; in the Blue Metallic Fade
Heads:
Toms TOP: Remo Powerstroke 3, Clear.
Toms BOTTOM: stock heads.
Snare TOP: Remo Emperor, Coated.
Snare BOTTOM: stock head.
Bassdrum BATTER: Remo Powerstroke 4, Clear.
Cymbals:
Paiste PST 5 UNIVERSAL setup:
14" Hats
16" Crash
20" Ride
Secondary Ride: Zildjian Planet Z (very muted, tightly screwed down)
Secondary Crash: Paiste 502 16" Crash
*RECORDING*
I miced each individual drum (snare top AND bottom were miced), plus two overheads, ran this through a mixer, got a decent mix and recorded with ONLY *ONE* stereo channel.. no multitrack recorder(s) :) I compressed the final mix to HELL.. to get a more aggressive sound, to make it sit better in with the original song (and hopefully overpower the original drums), detailed compression settings: 20:1 with a threshold of -20db and a compensation gain of 15db, with both seperate channels (LEFT and RIGHT, from the mixer) sent to a stereo sub-group, and the compression settings applied to THIS group, it gave a nice compact and aggressive result.. further mastering was needed to equalize the final mix and control peak levels and such.
