Jason Roeder is the drummer of the Oakland-based metal bands Neurosis and Sleep.

He played in the hardcore punk band Violent Coercion with Scott Kelly and Dave Edwardson before the trio formed Neurosis in 1985.[1] In 2010, Roeder replaced the retiring drummer of the stoner metal band Sleep.[2]


Roeder has played on kits with only a single rack and floor tom since he was 12 years old. He says that the basic set-up forces more creativity. He custom builds his own snare drums while using DW hardware and Paiste cymbals.[3][4]
