I'm a drummer, but not one that's into double bass blast beats. What I recommend doing is working on your heel-toe technique with both feet. That should helps with fast beats.

heel and toe is simple but the half second stops and the speed makes it impossable

Its relay hard to explain basically imagine the drummer of tool doing all his crazy stuff on his feet instead of his hands and going relay fast whilst doing simple beats with his hands.

Eeek...imagine Ticks and Leeches with just your feet...

Well, I suggest looking up the drum tabs for it, then playing it at a slower tempo. This song will definitely take some time.

I did its even more confusing :z. Ticks and leeches is a bitch of a song to play also playing it slowly is harder than playing it fast with all the odd timing and foot co-ordanation :|

Arrggh...well, something that helps me learn songs is watching other people do it. Watch drums covers of Bleed on youtube.

It's got a good view of his pedal-work

And here is one that has an explanation:

So you just have to work on your stamina. Work on rudiments with your feet, I find that to be helpful.
