One of my favorite drummers. He has mastered many amazing beats that would take me weeks to do. Love the music and I love his drumming. Will always be a fan of aaron. Sick drummer!

POWER! The rolls this man does with his double kick makes my head spin. I love the power he has... keep doing what you do my friend. I appreciate it more than you know.

Aaron is the most energetic drummer ive ever seen and his singles are so intense its unreal...this is a risky thinng to say but i'd say the most talented drummer in hardcore history.

Graeme posted on Jan 18, 2008 - 0:51 AM

Aaron is my favorite drummer he is my inspiration.

DJ posted on Jan 18, 2008 - 6:36 AM

Aaron is CRAAAAZY!!!! He totally created a new style! Soooooo awesome!!

kevin posted on Jan 18, 2008 - 16:44 PM

actually, he's a new evans endorsee... and that tour were coated g2s with clear g1s underneath

sometimes he used clear heads on top

always an emad2 on kick

most of the time a remo empx on snare, but sometimes evans st ctd

hope that helps

scott posted on Jan 19, 2008 - 20:00 PM

darn it. lol i tried to do that fill he does before the clicks. i can't get it without over using the toms... and i think he is using a steady double bass while he does it

shnargleborf posted on Jan 20, 2008 - 5:25 AM

i think that he is very talented, and that his drum parts are perfect for the style of music he plays, but i think that there are better drummers out there, but i still really like aaron

Brad posted on Jan 20, 2008 - 8:39 AM

definitly my fav drumma lol look at 2:36. It looks like he peed his pants. but its just sweat. he's definatly da mast energetic drumma eva!!!!!!!!!!! hes da man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vincent posted on Jan 23, 2008 - 2:53 AM

If he's smart, it'd be emperor's on the top and then ambassadors on the bottom. and he is smart. that's my guess

Simon Mason posted on Jan 23, 2008 - 20:35 PM

SICK! This dude rocks! If you like him watch Daniel Davidson from Norma Jean! they are both complete power houses!

Carson posted on Jan 24, 2008 - 4:10 AM

Katelyn posted on Jan 28, 2008 - 18:55 PM

Aaron is so energetic behind the drum kit and I love it! He such a different drummer in so many ways! They better on warped tour again this year!!!

Damn, he's awesome!

I met Aaron when he was 14 and joined Underoath. He was amazing then, playing styles more like death metal, but now he has come full cirle with intesity with talent!!! Good going man.

Great playing Aaron!

God Bless man

Bob from Taylorville posted on Mar 14, 2008 - 15:06 PM

hey meinl you guys should sell these videos of aaron on a dvd you would make a killing seriously i would order it the day i saw it haha and so would all my friends

Pete posted on Mar 14, 2008 - 23:17 PM

I got to hang around for an Underoath soundcheck once. Only the snare is Remo (Emperor X). The toms have Evans G2s and the kick is an EMAD 2. Didn't catch what the resos were.

awesome intro for returning empty handed!

i love the sound of his ride at 1:02!!!

jeremy posted on Mar 27, 2010 - 15:54 PM

he is my favorite drummer!! i love this video but but the begging was insane!!

Zachary posted on Apr 20, 2010 - 0:40 AM

I'm totally in agreement with the very first comment. There may be better drummers, but skill has nothing to do with style. I LOVE his drumming. He's definitely my favorite drummer and all round musician. Plus, he invents new things: His style is unique: NO one else plays like he does. Which is why I think it will be hard for Underoath to find a replacement drummer for him now that they'll be parting ways. Aaron has and will continue t be my biggest drumming inspiration. :)
