Default Well Played Nigel!! Man of the album!!

A few of you have already mentioned this in your reviews and thoughts of Battering Ram, but I feel Nigel deserves a Battering Ram thread of his own here!

We all know it was only around 12 months ago, that the Captain of 'HMS Glockler' nearly died as a result of a brain aneurism. Thankfully he not only survived but has somehow managed to put in the performance of his life on Battering Ram!

The sheer power and excellence of his performance on the album are staggering - particularly considering he was fighting for his life in early 2015!

He's truly excellent all the way through- most notably on the heavier and faster tracks such as Devil's Footprint, Battering Ram and Stand Your Ground. His time changes and fill ins are brilliant, and he makes the most of producer Andy Sneap 'spacing out' his drums a little more than on the Sacrifice album.

There are a some great performances on Battering Ram, but Nigel's has got to be the best of the lot! Long live HMS Glocker!
