Domino Santantonio Hears Slipknot For The First Time

  • Publicado el 1 sep 2022
  • This pop drummer has never listened to Slipknot.
    So naturally, we challenged her to play one of the metal band’s most popular songs.
    Domino Santantonio is known for her upbeat pop drum covers of artists like Dua Lipa and SAINt JHN. For her, drumming to metal would be like trying to speak a language without being fluent.
    But we love encouraging drummers to get outside of their comfort zone, and Domino was up for it. Though she opted not to use the double pedal we set up on her kit, she found a way to make Slipknot’s “Before I Forget” her own (get the full song transcription in Drumeo).
    Without knowing Joey Jordison‘s famous drum part in advance, Domino managed to hit many of the punches. And while some of her ideas were very different from the original drum part she still made some accurate guesses.
    Watch the video to see how she builds her parts, reevaluates her decision-making, and explains her thought process. You’ve never heard Slipknot like this before!

    DRUMEO, PLEASE KEEP DOING THESE. THEY ARE FANTASTIC! And thanks for taking our advice and letting them listen to the actual song at the end. One more suggestion; for those of us who may also not know how the song sounds-leave out the drum track on the original for us as well. Will be fun to hear it with the performer at the end of the video.

      so like, to everyone who questions If she'd never heard it before; are you drummers? or even musicians? basic jazz theory requires you know multiple styles. Metal is just jazz with strait eighth notes. There is a huge world of music (most of which is unknown to typical listeners) and if she went to school for music then she is trained through the lense of jazz. therefore it is more probable that she has never heard of slipknot. hHow many top 40 billboard songs does Slipknot have? I'm not bashing Slipknot, I'm just saying that most listeners follow a personalcentric view when it comes to what "everyone" has heard. I meen look at it this way: how many maggots can name a Chuck Berry song other that Jonny Be Goode or Run Run Rudolf?

      @Brandon Madden I think it’s kinda ease to presume near every drummer in the scene will have heard of Slipknot, just don’t know if she’ll have heard much of their catalogue of tunes yeno? But there is that part of me that agrees with you as well, like the really ain’t heard this song before? But maybe she is just that good a drummer, never heard of her before but that was legit so sick to see her improv was well done

      Too many people, (myself included,) try to unnecessarily use a double kick. I think any drummer should be able to play with a single the way she does before moving to a double. Anyway, off my soapbox, she is awesome.

    • Shadrach Rodriguez
      Shadrach Rodriguez Hace 18 días +2

      @Harry ok to be nitpicky, if the drummer is a predisposed CHILD PRODIGY, they could probably do this in under a year. But definitely not even close to a month. You can either dip your toes a little in neurobiology to understand why your assumption is far out of reality, or you can PICK UP THE DRUMS YOURSELF AND FIND OUT

  • The Effigy

    Watching her slowly fall in love with this song was one of the highlights of my month so far. Just the energy she starts to develop for the song, the bouncy drums, the power in each strike of her drumstick. She felt that. You can see the spirit of the music start to take over. Passion defies genre.

    • Bruno Carbone
      Bruno Carbone Hace 7 días +2

      It is amazing how metal can overload you with energy if you're opened to really appreciate it. The way she starts to allow the different style to sink in, you can see how she starts to change: the energy, her smile, her attitude... she allowed to become one with the song and that was amazing. She undersold her a bit by saying that she was so far off, but actually her take on the drumm lines was amazing! She put so much passion into it that you could feel the excitement. This was beautiful to watch. Almost like someone figuring out that is in love with someone else. Please keep these videos coming!

      Thats why I love this type of videos. The real musicians appreciate all different kinds of music, because in any kind of music you can find something interesting and inspiring. If youre open to all kinds of music, you will enjoy being out of your comfort zone and develop yourself a lot by trying different things. Thats why its so cool to watch great metal drummers have fun playing jazz or pop, great pop or jazz drummers playing metal or punk and so on, all different kinds of combinations. And they usually do well and have fun since its all music after all. Getting out of single genre limitation really is a mind-opening experience and a way to discover so many great compositions and ideas. Highly recommend everyone, even to non-musicians, try to dig deeper into any style or genre that you consider boring or noisy and you will quickly realize how wrong and limited you were all this time before

    This was always a difficult task since Slipknot has multiple percussionists, but she did a PHENOMENAL job. Her take was simultaneously surprisingly close to the original yet brought in her own flair and style into it. 10/10, would listen to again.

  • Manipulative Undertones

    She’s definitely feeling the energy and getting into the metal drumming vibe more in each take. I’ll bet any amount of money she starts to love metal after this. At least this kind of “metal” not really any blackened death or anything. She is doing very well and she should, by all means, keep it up with the metal stuff as it will only help her craft!

Pretty sure songs are not made in a day and I would still gladly listen to this version, has a lot of nice details. Being perfect in weeks is great, but being this close in a matter of hours is outstanding. Props to Domino, you got a new fan!

I was on the edge of my seat, silently cheering her on, and BAM, she finds her groove and freakin’ OWNS it! Incredible how that video just made me feel. I am in tears, frfr.. incredible….

    oh yeah, please do more of "drummer plays blind to a song what he/she thinks would be played", this was so fun to watch! :D
    and of course, Santantonio's interpretation is as fun and delightful as her bright personality :>

    Very impressive, especially since she's doing it all on memory that first run, and only using a single pedal. Well done!

    Yeah this is insane that she has never heard the drums and she managed to get something that i would say resembled the song. It was amazing.

    I hope you guys continue to do videos like this! Extremely enjoyable and I love hearing a new approach to an already great song. And her getting to hear the song at the end with the actual parts is a very nice touch!

    Woah! Given how insane Joey was on the drums, she did an exceptional job! She's not only kicking a** on her own take for the song but also her energy and sympathy is contagious. I just fell in love with her personality.

      @Rafael Oliveira Actually, there is (kinda) a way to play it "right", by just listening to the rest of the instruments and how the grooves flow, and then trying to be cohesive with what you hear, which she completely nailed by the way. So thats what the guy in the main comment tried to explain imo.

      @Вашу Юру! I think the "right" is right for the music, like the half times, the punches, not exactly the "right drum part".

    I think she's way too hard on herself about this, although she may have "missed" the original on a few parts, her interpretation on even the first take was great. With a few more runs, I bet her version would have been nails. These are super fun to watch ✌️

    These videos really go to show how important pattern memorisation/ recognition is. Learning the basics and keeping them as part of your practice regimen means that you can’t go too far wrong regardless of what’s thrown at you.
    Really great final take 👍🏻

      I tell everybody who’ll listen, all you need to know is singles, doubles, and flams, everything else is just a combination! Music is a puzzle that you get to make the pieces for as you go along.

    She found the main beat pretty quick! Also a very interesting choice to go to the toms for the bridge from the chorus back to the verse riff, I definitely never thought it could be played like that. Such an interesting take!

    That’s was amazing improvisation really sounded good! I’m a slipknot fan what you did fit and made the song sound very different in a good way! I loved the accents you didn’t during the build up and how it lead in. With out knowing this song. You KILLED IT

    She’s a fantastic player, playing outside “her genre” and having fun and being vulnerable while doing so in front of a camera and massive audience takes guts. But She did a great job and was an even better sport about it all. She made a fan out of me and I’m sure many others.

      @ktw70 And Disco is closely related to funk, and imo funk is probably one of the most important genres of music ever made. It's emphasis on the downbeat (the one) fundamentally changed music and touched so many genres. Almost every pop song even today has a funk related beat. Hip Hop came from funk. Funk drummers are some of the most in the pocket, groove oriented, tasteful drummers out there.

    It worked out pretty good! You can hear her pick it up and really grow into the song by the time she gets to the 2nd verse. Her final take was very different from the original, but absolutely worked for the song. Awesome. And it just shows you what kind of impact the style of the drummer has on the band.
