The folks from Magna Carta Records want the world to know that drummers are people, too! The label made that notion the theme of the third cd release in Magna Carta’s acclaimed Drum Nation series. Drummerszone, of course, never doubted it for a moment. And the exclusive video footage on this latest volume proves it.

\"Drum Nation - Volume 3\" is a compilation of the most provocative tracks ever tabled by drummers. The audio bliss is supplemented with a video component—a series of vignettes peering into the lives of the participants.
We’re talking the most cutting-edge drummers of our time: Chris Adler, Jason Bittner, Raanen Bozzio (son of legendary drummer Terry Bozzio), Jeremy Colson, Justin Foley, Michael Justian, Jordan Mancino, Joe Nunez, Chris Pennie, Derek Roddy, Kenneth Schalk , and Tom Taitano. Each has produced an audio track and a video exclusively for this exciting release. This is stuff you won’t see anywhere else.
Audio The audio is rich with the contributions of diverse personalities. The breadth of vision is evidence that, when unfettered by commercial constraints, drummers make amazing musical and production decisions. The music ranges stylistically from blast metal to ethereal soundscapes to quasi-jazz liquid vamps.
Video The video is a truly rare glimpse into each players extraordinary lives. Not to give it all away, but imagine Chris Adler against a green screen cavorting for a video game camera crew, or Joe Nunez narrating from the dentist’s chair, or Kenneth Schalk on the golf course, or Jason Bittner demonstrating “no pain, no gain” while submitting to a tattoo. That’s just the start of it.
