Slow Drums, Fast Everything Else

One of my favorite things in music is a verse/chorus/whatever where the drums play relatively slow, maybe playing a half time groove, and the guitar/vocals/whatever else are still super busy and fast. There's probably a more technical music term for this. Here are some examples where this happens. Can anyone rec me more songs that do this?
1He Is Legend

"Either They Decorated for Christmas Early or They're All Dead" -- The intro. Fast palm-muted guitar, rest of band in a half-time groove.
2The Receiving End of Sirens
Between the Heart and the Synapse

"This Armistice" — the "We're all puppets, we're all marionettes" bit. Slow drums, rapid-fire guitar.
3Dance Gavin Dance
Instant Gratification

The chorus (1:32). A bit cheating since the drums aren't super slow, but still less busy than the fast vocals and lead guitar
