After Seeing This Romain Goulon Youtube Clip, DrumPerium Looks Forward To The New “Necrobreed” Album by Benighted
Romain Goulon, a 25 year old Drummer who started playing drums at the age of 13. Romain studied jazz and modern music at the Music Conservatory of Cannes during 8 years and he’s, (actually) like the most, a self taught drummer.
After playing with many french metal bands like Agressor, Imperial S, Belef, Disharmony, he’s widen his drumming performance internationally and collaborated with bands like Disavowed and Necrophagist.
Drum Teaching And DVD Release
Besides being a studio and live session drummer. Romain is a drum teacher, international clinician, he has created instructional drum videos at his Youtube channel. In addition, he’s also released a drum DVD in 2015 named “Metal Chops Matrix“.
In an interview, in the October 2016 issue of Terrorizer Magazine, Julien Truchan (Benighted Vocalist) said this about his former drummer (Kevin Foley) and Romain Goulon:
“…Kevin was and still is one of my closest friends. But whereas in the rest of the band we all have day jobs and family, he’s always been the one who’s wanted to become a fulltime musician.
That’s why he’s been doing so much session work and was always on the hunt for a ‘big’ band.
So when he got the gig with Abbath – we weren’t supposed to talk about it then – we really encouraged him to take his chance. But on the other hand, we told him that we weren’t his backup plan and that if he was leaving Benighted, it was for good, even if it didn’t work out with the Norwegians and he totally got that.”

It was actually Romain Goulon from Necrophagist who got in touch with us. We had thought about him before but we believed that he was too busy and that we were too underground for him.
But he told us that he didn’t care about the money and that Necrophagist wasn’t going anywhere since their Guitarist/vocalist Muhammed was such a perfectionist. He’s been scrapping everything he writes ever since 2004’s ‘Epitaph’ and that they haven’t played live in years anyway.
Terrorizer Magzine also said in same issue “Romain made a name for himself with his fast beats. We bet he didn’t slow things down…“. of which Truchan responds:
“Far from it! Especially since Emmanuel loves to play fast tempos, so yes, it’s very fast! It’s also pretty viciousw ith very bleak parts and dirty samples that go hand in hand with the whole concept.”
Check out the video with Romain Goulon below where he teases with short Drum Clips excerpts from the Benighted “Necrobreed” to be released in 2017.
