A few good ones from the metal side of the fence:

Criminally Insane  ~  Slayer (Dave Lombardo)
Overkill  ~  Motorhead (Phil Taylor)
Ruptured In Purulence  ~  Carcass (Ken Owen)
Sear Me  ~  My Dying Bride (Rick Miah)
Red Rum  ~  Lizzy Borden (Joey Scott Harges)

BRUTAL.

the Cure - the Drowning Man (OK Tolhurst was a crap drummer but he sets the obsessive mood here perfectly)
the Cure - All Cats Are Grey (if he was such a crap drummer then why are...)
Sensational Alex Harvey Band - Vambo - (Ted McKenna is waay baaad y'all)
Jimmy Smith - Any Number Can Win (Just three tom beats from
Bobby Donaldson but they're just so perfect)
ELP - So Far to Fall (unjustly neglected track that would have improved Works Vol 1)
ELP - Tank - (Well I mean the intro to the swung 'Moog' portion to the end)
Deep Purple
- Fireball (never really rated Ian Paice but I love his playing on this)
Led Zeppelin - Rock and Roll (nuff said)
the Who - Slip Kid - (sounds simple but ask any drummer to play this Moon pattern and watch them flail badly)
the Fall - Hip Priest - (the mother of all 6/8 grooves - chosen rather bizarrely for the Silence of the Lambs soundtrack)
Bill Bruford's Earthworks - Bridge Of Inhibition (I think Bill exploits a drum synth thingy that triggers samples on the intro?)

the Monochrome Set - RSVP (JD Haney was clearly a big fan of both Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa)

there are loads more but old men forget etc

I like the ELP , Deep Purple and The Who selections very much ( don't know most of the others tbh).

Another track on Works Volume Two worth mentioning has a classic Carl Palmer 'marching band' intro - Close But Not Touching.

Making a "hard drive cleaning", happened to find a somewhat nostalgic moment of my 80s' times, just when i began listening to prog: that such passionate final drums session performed by P.Collins (Chester Thompson didn't participate in that session) in the song Afterglow during the 'Seconds Out' show... But sorry, this thread is about Drums intros.

Does this count?
The drum duet before Los Endos or the mini-drum duet before Duke's Travels when played live.

^ the drum duet is amazing isn't it? I would say its a 'bridge' between 2 tracks though.

Not sure if these have been mentioned before :
Led Zep - 'When The Leevee Breaks'. Bonham and a solid groove !!
Jefferson Starship - 'Freedom At Point Zero'. Aynsley Dunbar kicks serious ass on this one.

Good choice! Aynsley Dunbar has done some great work with a lot of people over the years. Not an intro, but I love his thunderous drumming on Keith West's On A Saturday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soYuUaFBJSE

Amazing intro, as well as whole song (and whole album... and to be honest, whole PFM ;)


Not prog, but this song is so good i had to post it here.

Thank you, Drumstruck, for resurrecting this thread...(as a drummer myself, I like your ProgArchives avatar-name...)

Especially for a prog drum intro, I (also) vote for Alan White at the beginning of "Sound Chaser" (Yes-Relayer) [I did some previous "voting" on this thread back in February...]
