Former HATE ETERNAL/NILE drummer Tim Yeung came in first in the "Fastest Feet" category at the NAMM International Fastest Drummer Contest on Sunday, January 22 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Yeung, who recently formed a new extreme-metal project with ex-FEAR FACTORY/BRUJERIA guitarist Dino Cazares, beat the competition with 872 beats in one minute. Meanwhile, Reese Bridges from London, England placed first in the "Fastest Hands" category with 1,007 beats in 60 seconds. You can check out a picture of Yeung and Bridges at this past weekend's competition.

All contestants for both "Fastest Hands" and "Fastest Feet" competitions were scored on playing single strokes (no bounces, presses or buzz) for ONE MINUTE and recorded by the Drumometer. Grand prizes for this year’s contest included: Two Pearl drum sets, a year supply of ProMark drum sticks (with winner’s name), two sets of Meinl cymbals, Axis LongBoard "A" double pedal, 50 Remo drum heads, a year subscription to Drum! magazine and much more.

Tim has been my idol for years and this is the kind of recognition he deserves. He is the fastest. Just listen to the records he's played on. They are the fastest anf best records those bands have ever done. If I was gonna do a metal record there is only one drummer to have on that record and he has proven himself.

And that is Tim 'The Missile' Yeung
