Comment on Facebook

Oh, I LOVE this one ๐Ÿ˜

Je t’avais bien dit que de jouer avec des baguettes en plomb ça te mettrait les triceps en valeur !

Yessssss ! J'adore !bravo léo ! Rappelles moi la marque et le modèle de ta snare qui sonne si énorme !! Bizz โค๏ธ๐ŸฅโœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜œ

Mais c’est qu’il est taillé le type ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

T’as déjà pensé à faire une live session? Je vois bcp des artistes qu’ont commencé à travailler avec ça pendant la pandémie et c’est une grande opportunité d’intégration. Salut!

Whaou, la musculature du type ๐Ÿ™‚

My favorite from album. It has POS flavour from RL era.

Aaahhh... I can't wait! ๐Ÿ˜

Enorme. Je parle de tes biceps bien sur

If I remember correctly, weren’t you introduced with a drum solo over that end section on Johan’s last PoS show in Notodden in 2007?

Nihil Morari and its intricate alternance of triplets and dotted 8th notes that sound almost identical to the novice earsโ€ฆ When @insideoutmusic asked me to record a playthrough for one of the songs from BE, this is the first one that came to my mind. I had never played it prior to making the video so needless to say it hasnโ€™t been easy! Once again I tried to respect Johan Langellโ€™s way of playing it and I havenโ€™t changed much if anything at allโ€ฆ After all on a piece like that, everything is written to the point by Daniel and there is no space for improvising! Iโ€™m not sure the original recording had a click track but I made one following the slight tempo fluctuations, ยซ erased ยป the original drums from the track and re-recorded and mixed them in my studio.
As usual the whole thing is filmed with only one camera (thanks @patriksjoeberg ) and cut together afterwards.
The full playthrough is available on InisideOutโ€™s Youtube channel (www.youtube.com/watch?v=94J7R5jhDVo&feature=emb_logo). Enjoy!

Wow Leo, thank you very much for this one! I`m a big fan of Pain of Salvation for about 15 years now, and one reason for that are unique drumpatterns like in Nihil Morari - drives me crazy ๐Ÿคฃ It also fascinates me what might be in Daniels mind to pull of such "weird stuff" somehow natural ๐Ÿ˜€ Anyway, You definitely enrich the band very much with your skills, your musicality and personality !!! I also have to mention that the sound of the drums developed fantastic since you've been in the band! Your drum playthroughs demonstrate that you have remarkable skills in recording and mixing your drumkit - maybe you will share youre recording-experience in another video!? Would love to see that! ๐Ÿ˜ Keep up the good work, i will go now behind my e-drum kit and desperately try to play along youre track ๐Ÿ˜…

Leo Margarit is the best <3

Good work! I'm so impressed by your bass drums playing! Beau travail!

Géant ! Merci ๐Ÿค˜

As good as the original, as always!

Yeah!!! ๐Ÿ†

Leo the great๐Ÿ˜„

The warmer drum sound of the world!!!!! Love It ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Léo, tu joue très bien et j’aime beaucoup ton style! Je joue aussi de la batterie et je ne peux pas jouer tout ce que tu joues ๐Ÿ˜…. Je viens de Montréal au Québec et j’aimerais bien voir Pain of salvation en concert un jour! Salutations!

Toujours passionnant de redécouvrir le morceau au travers de ton jeu. J'ai l'impression de davantage plonger dans sa complexité. Merci!

Är det Seinfeld?

Leo ๐Ÿฅฐ

Did you change anything on the other tracks? I think I can hear some different sounds compared to the original.

Beautiful song! Stellar performance! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

You really were extremely focused on the patterns.. But I always love you see playing - even when not smiling! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿค˜

Excellent song, excellent drums...my vote was for Leo Margarit The Progspace

Can't wait to see you guys on stage again ๐Ÿ–ค

No idea what you’re doing there but it sounds amazing! ๐Ÿค˜

Fancy some 13/16+11/16? Look no further! The WAIT drum playthrough is around the corner, coming on @insideoutmusic YouTube channel in a few days!
#leomargarit #painofsalvation #WAIT #PANTHER #13/16+11/16 #drumplaythrough

Comment on Facebook

Its not the time signature that is odd. Its your video that is a little before the sound ๐Ÿ˜‹

Quelque part, 13/16 + 11/16, c'est presque du 3/4. Comment ça non ?

You're one of the best drummers in the rock/metal/musicgenresarenotrelevant scene. Simply brilliant!!! I hope more and more people start to notice the results of your intense practice and dedication to the instrument. FANTASTIC, monsieur Margarit!

We have a saying... KILLER ASS!! Love it thanks now I must practice;—)

I would wait for any numbers you’d promise! Even if I don’t understand what they mean, hahaha!

One of the best from Panther!!!! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Amazing, as always. And this is one of my favorites ๐Ÿฅฐ

The favourite number from Panther ๐Ÿ™‚ like that despite “non-standard” time signature and complexity the overall groove sounds very organic

Pareil trop court, on reste sur notre fin ou plutôt faim musical avec ce covid system, meilleurs vœux ! Et bravos, le dernier pain est excellent ! Et tes plans de batterie sont excellents ๐Ÿ‘

Do you want me to hook you up with a decent t-shirt company?

“Partially muted due to copyright claim” ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚


Fantastique cette partie.... aussi bien a la batterie qu'en générale ! Le passage en 4/4 est superbe !

Du är grym Leo. Skaffa lite större ego och snacka som fan om allt och inget och snurra med pinnarna så blir du snart som vissa andra trummisar som syns väldigt mycket ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿคช

Yes mon léo, je m'écoute l'album en boucle depuis quelques jours en plus ๐Ÿ˜Š en passant , le son de la caisse claire sur Unfuture est bien chelou lol ! ๐Ÿ˜

Holly mother of God...

Trop court !!! Meilleurs vœux !

Génial, superbe

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 ...

Is there any chance of a "Gone" playthrough?

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

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?

Welcome back.

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? ^^

I (Anniversary Mix 2020)โ€ and will be released on November 20th, 2020 via InsideOutMusic.

Should have had it remixed by the kids on the front of the album!!! They are old enough now! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Heck YEAH!

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

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.

You guys are saving this troubled year... ๐Ÿ–ค

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

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

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˜‚

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

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

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

Ça déménage.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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‚

encore un album incroyable

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.

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

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

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

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

Not even a 7-year-old? Damn, he's cheap. ๐Ÿ˜€

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 !!!!

It gets better with every listen!

Il s’annonce salement dosé ce mojito ๐Ÿ˜œ

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

Ça c'est la grande classe ! Super album !

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

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

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

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

Super album encore une fois

Rätt åt dig! ๐Ÿ˜˜
