May 10th, 2011, the Juggernaut has been unleashed!  Anvil, with ddrum artist Robb Reiner has released their HIGHLY anticipated new album, Juggernaut of Justice. 

Juggernaut Of Justice features the following tracklisting:
‘Juggernaut Of Justice’
‘When Hell Breaks Loose’
‘New Orleans Voodoo’
‘On Fire’
‘Fuckin’ Eh’
‘Turn It Up’
‘The Ride’
‘Not Afraid’

Frontman Steve “Lips” Kudlow recently commented: “I must say that this is by far the best Anvil ever. There will be a few new surprises including Glenn 5′s first lead vocals in Anvil’s history. The production that Bob Marlette has done far surpasses anything we’ve done in the past. The excitement within the band is over the top and we can’t wait to unleash this amazing CD to the fans.”
Drummer Robb Reiner concurs: “The new album is pure Anvil with a new fresh kick, very exciting. Looking to rocking with The End, putting the music where it belongs – in everybody’s ears and face!”
Prior to the release of Juggernaut Of Justice, The End will be releasing the definitive Anvil anthology. The collection will be comprised of classics old and new, with some surprises, and will showcase the band’s entire career spanning back to 1978.

Megadeth in the studio!

Vic's Garage, Ca, Shawn Drover and the rest of Megadeth are currently in the studio, tracking their follow up to the hugely successful Endgame.  Endgame included the Grammy nominated track "Headcrusher", which Shawn co-wrote.  Megadeth has already had a stellar begining to 2011, playing the first ever, US Big 4 date with Slayer, Anthrax and Metallica.  The second date, of thes already massive shows was just recently anounced.  On top of all of this, the band is also playing all dates of the upcoming Mayhem festival, joining main stage acts such as Disturbed, bringing the mighty Megadeth sound to a whole new group of fans. DDRUM, whas responed to these events, building Shawn a one-of-a-kind, USA custom drum set!  The drums are in the same configuration as the Dominion Ash kits that Shawn has favored in the past.  Pristine, all-maple shells were used, in conjunction with ddrum's signature bullet-lug, and the drums were finished in silver, to match Dave Mustaine's signature VMNT V.  Truly a work of art, built in ddrum's custom shop  in Portland, Oregon.

Christian Coma of Black Veil Brides Drum solo!

Black Veil Brides recently played a sold-out gig in DDRUM's back yard.  It gave us the perfect opportunity to present CC with his custom-finished Dios Ash drum set.  I was on hand, with my new FLIP cam to catch some of the action.  Here is a quick clip of CC and Dios Ash in action!

Derrick Wright with Adele on the Graham Norton Show.

Another clip of ddrum artist Derrick Wright.  This time, he is playing a Reflex kit in pewter.  Once again, the Iron Blend snare, providing that old-school tone. 

Get to know the Dios Bamboo Snare!

Time for a little reaction to one of the lesser-known models in the ddrum arsenal.  The Dios bamboo snare.  This drum comes with the option of die-cast or matching bamboo hoops, in a choice of satin natural or satin black.   This drum has been described by many of the ddrum staff, as one the absolute best we have to offer.  Extremely versatile, it is a hybrid sound that splits the difference between wood and metal.  It also has the benefit of being environmentally conscious, as bamboo is in the grass family and is quickly replenish able.  This is the drum that I personally own....but don't take my word for it, here is the reaction from Sean Fuller, from Justin Moore's band:

"Wow! love this snare drum. For a rock style drummer that usually only uses steel or brass snare drums live, this snare blew me away!! It is now the main snare drum on my kit and night after night I always get rave reviews on how the snare sounds. And for me, it out performs any other snare to date I have used. Thank You DDrum. Keep the revolution of innovation coming. ~Sean Fuller for Justin Moore and the Double Barrel Ace Band"

Here is a quick vid from one of our retailers, Cymbal Fusion:
