The first disc of this two disc set focuses on the techniques needed to play effectively in this genre. Flo discusses the basic elements fundamental in playing extreme metal drums as well as showing exercises, routines and tips facilitating speed, endurance and control. The second disc focuses on live performances with Flo s band Cryptopsy, clinic performances, over the top solos, extreme songs and drum duets.
