Ben Carter is the 'engine room' for the machine that is Evile. A self-taught, no-nonsense drummer, Carter provides the aggression and fury required to drive the band's dominant thrash sound. Carter has toured the world extensively with bands such as Megadeth, Kreator, Machine Head, and Overkill, and has worked alongside world-class producers such as Russ Russell and Flemming Rasmussen.
Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceI remember we were boosted up the playing order at a well known metal fesival, and something about the tension and excitement of filling in for another huge band made me play out of my skin. Seeing the crowd go crazy for us as we did our thing on such a huge stage; It's a feeling I thrive on.
What Drives Your Creativity?I take influence from so many styles of music, and I always strive to implement as much as possible within the confines of our genre. You can always learn from anyone, be it a beginner or a seasoned pro.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?Vic Firth sticks are the perfect weapon of choice for me; the weight, size, feel and consistency of the 55A is all I'll ever need to do my thing.
