Roy Mayorga (born April 6, 1970)[2] is an American musician and songwriter, best known as the drummer of heavy metal bands Hellyeah and Stone Sour.


Mayorga was the original drummer for metal band Soulfly from 1997 to 1999. Prior to joining the band, he also played with New York hardcore band Shelter in 1996. He also played drums for one of the most influential political bands from New York in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Nausea. Nausea was the band Mayorga did his first proper tour of Europe and U.S. and recorded his first album with.

He also played drums on the album The Hollowing with metal band Crisis in 1996. He was briefly a member of the band Medication from 1999–2001, when he left the group to rejoin Soulfly with which he recorded 3 and toured with them soon after. He parted ways with the group in 2003.

In 2004, he helped create rock band Abloom as with vocalist Jasan Radford and lead guitarist Levon Sultanian. Also part of the band was Mike Doling (Snot, Soulfly) and John Fahnestock (Snot). Fahnestock left and was replaced by Marcelo Dias a.k.a. Marcello D. Rapp (Soulfly).

In 2005, he appeared as one of the drummers on the Roadrunner United compilation CD The All-Star Sessions, playing on "The Enemy", "The End", and "Baptized in the Redemption", all tracks being produced and musically written by Dino Cazares and Roy Mayorga. The song "The End" spawned a music video.

Mayorga also does classical film scoring, working on films such as Legion (2004) and Shudder (2007).

He temporarily filled in behind the drumkit for Sepultura's 2006 European tour with In Flames following Igor Cavalera's absence.

He officially joined Stone Sour on May 10, 2006, as a replacement for Joel Ekman. He drummed for their second release, Come What(ever) May, released in August 2006.

In October 2013, Belgian metal band Channel Zero announced that following the death of their drummer Phil Baheux, Mayorga will play the drums on their upcoming album.

On May 6, 2019, Mayorga was announced as Hellyeah's new drummer for their upcoming May 11, 2019 show honoring their late drummer Vinnie Paul, who died in June 2018.
