About the Author: Delta Empire


  1. You should really check out Diesel Machine-Torture Test. A 90’s groove metal band. I'd love to see a cover of any song. I have yet to see a cover of any type on YouTube. I think you’d dig it!

  2. I've watched all your videos and I can't stay away. Although I've scrolled down and have yet to see children of bodem – living dead beat – or – if you want peace prepare for war – would kill to see and hear you play those !

  3. Seriously, why aren't there more drum covers and even metal covers of this type of music? They're practically begging for it! Brothers in Arms and Mombassa are my favorite covers that you've done (along with It Makes them Disappear). Keep it going, I love it Delta!!

  4. Very epic! I'm going to have to come back here and put this on repeat next time I find myself writing a battle scene.

    I've never heard this song before now, so I don't know what the original track sounds like without your awesome drumming, but I'm going to assume you absolutely killed it. You always do.

  5. You are GOD 😍😍😍❀️😍❀️😍❀️😍❀️😍❀️😍❀️😍❀️😍❀️😍❀️😍❀️😍❀️😍❀️😍❀️😍😍😍
