Hello internet, itโ€™s been a while! Hereโ€™s a short video I found in my Dropbox. I suppose I was saving it for rainy days! ๐Ÿ˜€ Canโ€™t remember if I was just jamming or playing to a click track, but itโ€™s definitely an improvisation! Throws me back to my latin jazz days...! @promarkbydaddario @evansdrumheads @paistecymbals #drumimprovisation #latinjazz #sessiondrummer ...

Really like, that you play on a regular equipment, but what's your opinion about the monster setups like Portnoy, or Mangini have, or something like that?

Nice! Do you do Skype lessons?? Would definitely try during my free time! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Welcome back.

Is there any chance of a "Gone" playthrough?

Bonjour Léo, je vois que tu n'as pas une position de pied droit talon levé avec la batte complétement enfoncée en position initiale. Tu as le talon carrément au sol, ou tu es en position intermédiaire? ^^

And I must add that I mixed the live bonus tracks!Following the release of their acclaimed new studio album โ€œPANTHERโ€, Swedenโ€™s progressive Metal innovators Pain of Salvation are announcing a special re-issue edition for their โ€œThe Perfect Element, Pt. Iโ€ album from 2000. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the bandโ€™s third album, the re-issue version is entitled โ€œThe Perfect Element, Pt. I (Anniversary Mix 2020)โ€ and will be released on November 20th, 2020 via InsideOutMusic.

A first taste of the release is available as of today with the launch of its first digital single โ€œAshes (Anniversary Mix 2020)โ€ here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVblZBWE5ag and here: open.spotify.com/track/1KsDYvXlD1Kwv8h4WQUmOv

Génial Leo Margarit. J'espère bientôt si possible un live de la dernière tournée qui était fantastique d'émotions à l'image de l'avant dernier album.


Du coup, j'espère d'autres drum playthrough ๐Ÿค˜ tout prochainement !

Heck YEAH!

When will we get the live bonus tracks information? I can't waiiittt!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

As weird as complex to understand as complex to play.๐Ÿ˜‰ Well done Leo for such creativity on this drum parts!

I'm sorry but this sounds to me better than the album. It sounds killer! Great job!

So tight and relaxed at the same time! Cool man ! Grosses bises du Nord de la France ! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Superbe! Merci, c’est toujours très inspirant de vous voir performer Monsieur Margarit.

Vraiment bien Léo!!! J'adore ton style sur PANTHER Cheers du Quebec

Encore un sacré challenge ce morceau... bravo !

Intense! Especially the section with the bass drum played with 1 foot! โค๏ธ

Sebastien Belva ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

Fabuleux !

Sounds a lot like the "Road Salt" Drum/Mix. Is it the same kit?

Ça déménage.

T es belle avec tes cheveux de shampooing ๐Ÿงด de méchant !!! Bravo ! Au plaisir de te recroiser

- Ok Leo. The question is, where is the one? - which one? - thats the second question...

You are a monster

Tasty. Never overplayed. Hardest part is likely the isolated kick drum section, feels weird to not do anything with the hands to counterweight your core ๐Ÿ˜‚

Grymt spel. Ståpäls delux๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿค˜

It's an amazing album! Congrats, Leo ♥๏ธ๐ŸŒธ

Cet album est fantastique. C'est incroyable cette manière de faire évoluer votre musique et les partie de batterie sont remarquables. Immense musicien !

It’s a masterpiece! I’m waiting for my vinyl now

Lord Daniel is the best ๐Ÿ˜ Like you Leo. The album is unexpected, revolutionary, strange but unique, with each listening it changes and takes on new nuances

Fantastic work Leo, your drumming is astonishing as always... Can't wait to see you guys live playing Panther (hope soon)

Leo, congratulations for the awesome work you did on this album. Your drumming is simply fantastic, full of technique and energy. You deserve the best, friend. As soon as this pandemic is over, we're waiting for you here in Brazil.

Super album encore une fois

Bravo les gars pour ce coup de maître, l'album est exceptionnel! Merci !

It's an exceptional! It's been on constant replay for the last few days since I got it. Congratulations!


Ça c'est la grande classe ! Super album !

Mon vinyle est à la poste, je vais le chercher demain.

Leo, the album is fantastic! Congrats! My copies should arrive soon, but I listened on Spotify. I always know to expect something new, but I never know what it’s going to be. The way you play the quintuplets and septuplets on Accelerator is so good and unlike some people, I loved Panther, especially the rapping parts and the groove that is deceptively intricate. There’s literally no band in the world like PoS. You guys deserve world fame, the whole discography is so legendary and covers so much ground musically, conceptually, and emotionally.

I just listen it once. Not enough to have an opinion on it, like every Prog album! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The album is great you guys rule !!!!

โค๏ธ Il n'a pas dédicacé chaque album à ton nom? Bah quoi ? ๐Ÿ˜‚

So this is what you get payed for exceptional drumming on a brilliant album?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Je l ai pas encore trouvé en vinyle mais je ne désespère pas ๐Ÿ˜‰


encore un album incroyable

Bonsoir Leo ๐Ÿ˜Š Oui il tourne sur la platine en ce moment ! J'étais si contente de le recevoir que je lui ai fait un gros câlin ๐Ÿ˜„ Il me l'a bien rendu quand j'ai mis le son ! Super boulot, bravo et merci ๐Ÿ˜ ... Je croise (tout) les doigts pour que cette dure période soit derrière nous au plus vite pour vous retrouver sur scène ๐Ÿ˜˜

Merci pour ces compositions, ce son et ces rythmes complètement addictifs ! Et santé avec le Mojito ๐Ÿฅ‚

Que dire ????? Une véritable tuerie.... un album exceptionnel, différent, comme vous savez si bien le faire Je vous aime <3

Vraiment énorme, j'y retrouve tout ce que j'aime . Merci pour ce beau boulot... ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿ‘

Rätt åt dig! ๐Ÿ˜˜

This is the best one so far - it's on my sixth playthrough now and it seems to reignate this passionate awaiting of an upcoming album that I was dearly missing for some time now. Great job!

Can you guide us through the time signatures and the rhythmic figures please?

Leo ๐Ÿ’™

Impatient de dompter la Panther ๐Ÿพ et de vous revoir très vite en live ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ

I'm not a musician but the first time I listened to this song I kept thinking about how difficult the time signature is. I have so much respect and admiration for you, Leo. You're certainly one the the best drummers I've ever seen.

Excited! The tracks you've released so far are so great!

Énorme cette part

Genius ๐Ÿ–ค


Magnifique son en effet si particulier et si addictif !

Yessssss ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜˜

Je suis en train de rédiger la chronique de l’album.... la batterie (jeu + son) est fantastique. Tellement organique et différent de tout ce qu’on entend généralement dans le métal. Subtil, naturel, chaud, inspiré... un vrai bonheur. Bravo !

Une idée de la date de diffusion?

Ohh you played that open handed.. Interesting! Is it only due to the position of the drums or some other reason?

Love it!

I feel like it's too short! Like, I want MORE of it! But hey, guess what, there's probably going to be another "Travis plays" video of this coming soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

Love it ! Can't wait for the drum playthrough ๐Ÿค˜

Love it. It feels like a builder song too, so really anxious to hear what it may build to.

Amazing job! ๐Ÿ–ค

Can't wait for Panda!

Hereโ€™s a new track by my good friend Javier Sepulveda . Itโ€™s a great fusion/prog instrumental piece that I recorded the drums for earlier this year in my own studio.

Waouw ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Haha love how you drew me in with the simplicity and slowly went full prog! Leo, those polyrhythms / hemiolas or whatever you call those patterns are incredible!

When you're going on a long, multi measure fill in what sounds like a triplet feel, are you counting in your head and finding count 1 at the end? Such an easy groove to follow until you go nuts then I can't find the beat even with the metronome!

Killer playing ;—) great drum sound ,!

Jesus, you're good.. I'm ashamed to say I got lost at 1:13 (at least at first listen) ๐Ÿ˜‡
