TOOL - THE POT
TOOL – THE POT – DRUM COVER
Jan 30, 2017
It was kind of rough to get this video shot, edited and uploaded before I left to Israel but I knew that not shooting it would be a huge mistake, cause I would then forget all the drum parts and have to re-learn it when I get back… aaand not to mention I would lose my chops and need to build back up to not sucking.
MEYTAL - OUT OF CHAOS
MEYTAL – OUT OF CHAOS – DRUMS PLAYTHROUGH
Dec 19, 2017
I wasn’t sure if I was gonna post this video, I actually shot it before I shot the mountain video but then figured it doesn’t make sense to let the world hear my new song for the first time as a live play-through vs the final mastered version, so I ended up shooting it twice, but hey it’s all good, more videos is always the right choice!

here’s your BTS download to the Out Of Chaos shoot! sorry I’m a bit low on BTS photos for this one, this was one of my first shoots after launching Patreon and it took me a min to get the hang of it and get a groove going with the BTS side of things ?
DRUMS ONLY: OUT OF CHAOS – DC
Dec 22, 2017
Here’s your drumzonly! I’m a bit weirded out with the super high pitch 8’ tom, and really not a huge fan of the tom sound in general, maybe I’ll bug Kevin about remixing it, he’s on tour right now but I patiently await his return so I can resume bugging him. ?
COMMENTARY VIDEO: OUT OF CHAOS
Dec 21, 2017
Here is the commentary video to Out Of Chaos, it’s not extremely informative I suppose but we get to hang for a min, and that’s always good! lmk if you would like to seeeee or heeeeear something else than this current format! Till next time
INCUBUS - MAKE YOURSELF
INCUBUS – MAKE YOURSELF – DRUM COVER
Oct 29, 2017
For those of you who might want to point out that this is a really simple song to drum to, let me just say that – yeah SO? 😀 this is one of my fav songs off one of my fav albums, and honestly, it’s THE MOST fun to play to those songs that have inspired me to start playing to begin with – as easy as they may be.

Hey hey! so this would be the BTS download to “Make Yourself”! the vlog video came out a a bit ridiculous, and looking at my new sunglasses here makes me think I should throw them away, I look like a serious douche haha. have fun.
DRUMS ONLY: MAKE YOURSELF
Nov 2, 2017
gotta love the drums only with me mouthing the words with no sound, a bit awkward, and yet much less awkward than my actual singing voice. The cross stick part was really tricky for me… I think this take was the only take out of 6 I got this part right.. and the sound quality of my cross stick can really use some work still. but ok, I’ll work on it 🙂 anyhow, this one was long coming – an all time fav song from an all time fav album!
THE SINGAPORE VLOG
MEYTAL x SINGAPORE – P. 3/3
Sep 30, 2017
This was a really fun experience! I want to experience more, I want to travel and I want to meet YOU! So keep a look out, things are already in motion, more of this coming soon.
MEYTAL x SINGAPORE – P. 2/3
Sep 26, 2017
Some of the hottest days of my life, and that says A LOT coming from someone that grew up in Israel. but still, it was worth it and I hope to be back.. if not for the awesome people then for the shopping – yes, I do STILL despise shopping, but such as myself, the Singaporeans happen to be unusually small people, and the size XXS CAN be found in most stores, and not just in the kids section, which makes me much more agreeable to the whole shopping experience.
MEYTAL x SINGAPORE – P. 1/3
Sep 23, 2017
This was a really fun experience! For years I’ve been keeping live appearances to a minimum, due to some personal fears and deep seeded craziness. I get so stressed out before playing live, I’m pretty sure that’s the reason I was sick with a fever 98% of the time on our band tour. But things are changing… I think I’m growing up 😄
DISTURBED - THE LIGHT
DISTURBED – THE LIGHT – DRUM COVER
Oct 1, 2017
This was interesting, I was debating with myself if I should play the sampled part or not – the drum part is actually really simple but there’s this cool percussiony part on top that feels like is SHOULD be played by the drummer so I decided to go for it. It’s the pattern played on the 8′ tom! I was keeping time with the left foot and splashing it where u would normally hear the hi hat open! I think it kinda works – but u tell me 🙂

Here’s the Behind-The-Scenes for The Light! You can really tell I was exhausted by the time the BTS video and pics were shot! The trip with my family btw went better than expected, it WAS too much shopping like I feared, but I still had a good time having them around, they’re funny people. Till next time!
AVENGED SEVENFOLD - AFTERLIFE
AVENGED SEVENFOLD – AFTERLIFE – DRUM COVER
Sep 23, 2017
I covered this song about 6 years ago, I wasn’t so happy with the sound, but I kinda liked the little part I came up with and I’ve been meaning to give it another go! So here it is now, and I have to say I do like it better so I think I can finally move on now 😄 who would have thought 6 years later we’ll still be here together haha.
AFTERLIFE – DRUMS ONLY
Sep 25, 2017
here’s Afterlife’s drums only, I really like how the drum sound came out.. but maybe it’s cause I’m listening to it using my sweet headphones! anyhow, check it out, use it to practice or make our very own collab vid!! love you guyz…
MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE - HELENA
COMMENTARY VIDEO: HELENA
Aug 23, 2017
So strange, I thought I uploaded this already but apparently I’m a bit behind on things here! Well here it is now, commentary video for Helena! Working on a couple of exciting new projects for you, announcements coming soon… LOVE!

Here’s a the full BTS download for Helena! It was pretty cool but I feel like I might run out of things to show you around the studio – I had an idea to do a quick Ask Meytal on my next BTS shoot, so if you have anything you want to ask, or something you would like me to talk about write your questions in the comments section below!
DRUMS ONLY: HELENA
Jul 3, 2017
Here’s the Helena drums only for you! I really liked the sound I got at the drum channel much better, mainly the bass drum, I’m gonna work on getting a new bass drum mic and a few pre amps – but the snare sounds pretty good I think! lmk what yooou think tho!
TWELVE FOOT NINJA - ONE HAND KILLING
TWELVE FOOT NINJA – ONE HAND KILLING – DRUM COVER
Jun 17, 2017
super stoked to share this video with you, it was somewhat of a struggle to get it out, like a mini birth. not that I’ve ever gave birth but I would imagine it would suck. I won’t bore you with technical details but despite apparent odds it’s here now and I’m pretty happy about it! lmk what you thhhhhhink!
BONUS PHOTOS & VIDEOS DOWNLOAD: ONE HAND KILLING
Jun 19, 2017
Download link below! An inside look to some behind-the-scenes madness at the drum channel, good people all around, super patient and professional despite the fact I’m just a bit crazy. I have to admit, I take a really long time to set up, don’t tell anyone cause they won’t want to work with me. ?
COMMENTARY VIDEO: ONE HAND KILLING
Jul 22, 2017
I know you guys asked some questions on the last commentary video thread, as I mentioned I want to start doing some ask Meytal’s! I answered those in a different video (coming soon) but feel free to ask any other questions for some of the next ask Meytal’s, if you have any! if not, I’ll just ramble on like I do 🙂
A PERFECT CIRCLE - PET
A PERFECT CIRCLE – PET – DRUM COVER
May 29, 2017
Here’s Pet for you, one of my fav APC songs – I really like the lyrics of this song, it’s a subject that interests me a lot, so I’ve attached the lyrics for you guys! I love how this video came out, I think I finally found a cool little team to work with that I really like, and it only took me about 8 years 🐢
COMMENTARY VIDEO: PET
Jun 11, 2017
Hey lovelies. sorry this took a while.. but here it now! This was harder than I thought.. and a tiny bit awkward watching meeee. I have another idea for a reward upgrade, I’ll keep you posted soon! Meanwhile, another video is en route, the One Hand Killing cover I shot with the drum channel! took me a really long time to learn, pretty technical song and one of my current favs! – coming soon!
DRUMS ONLY: PET
Jun 2, 2017
Here’s the drums only for you select few! I’m always super self conscious about the drums only, seeing me mouth the lyrics with no music is a bit cringey haha. but yeah here it is! Josh Freese is one of my favorite drummers, pretty sure this song was recorded without a click.. very loose and packed with feeeeeeel – tried my best to capture the awesomeness..

sooo here’s the PET behind the scenes for you… sometimes I ramble on about grape leaves and other semi-pointless information but I’m hopping to get better at this.
