Drummers that get No Love?

It seems to me that when you ask the question about drummers ( either best or favorite) you get the same stock answers ( Portnoy, Bonham, Lombardo, Peart, Moon, Hoglan, etc), which kind amakes me believe that 90% of people really DON'T pay much attention to the drumming, and in a lot of instances just answer... show more It seems to me that when you ask the question about drummers ( either best or favorite) you get the same stock answers ( Portnoy, Bonham, Lombardo, Peart, Moon, Hoglan, etc), which kind amakes me believe that 90% of people really DON'T pay much attention to the drumming, and in a lot of instances just answer with one of those, cause they hear that name a lot.

Anyhow, what I was hoping for is to get some people who love drums to suggest OTHER great drummers, people who are at the top of their craft, but get little recognition.

I'll list a few, as examples then turn it ovver to you folk
IGOR CAVELARA ( Sepultura, very versatile, and IMO right there with Lombardo for king of Thrash drumming)

MORGAN ROSE (Sevendust. ZOMG!!! But that's Nu-Metal, and he doesn't pound a million blastbeats a minute. Yeah shut up and listen to the drums. He is one of the most creative drummers alive today)

MERCEDES LANDERS ( OK Peaches..now you go TOO FAR. Thats not only NuMetal, but its a chick! Uh huh, your point? She still drums better than 95% of the guys in Metal, deal with it )

JUKKA NEVALAINEN (Nightwish. PowerPop Fairy Metal? How can that have good drumming? Again, shut up and listen to the drumming, THEN get back to me )

and I ain't even gonna get into Tomas Haake, or Daniel Erlandson, cuz if you can't instnatly recognize their greatness, you need to never comment on Drumming again. Am I claiming these 4 are the best drummers ever? No, what I am doing is pointing out that there are fantastic ones NOT NAMED NEIL PEART.

MQ- Name some great lesser known drummers.
(provide links if possible)
MQ2- What Kind of Drumming do you prefer?
