I go more or less the other way round on the (non-parallel) drum bus: slight (2-3 dB of GR) SSL quad-style compression with longer (30ms) attack and longer release just to hold the kit together a bit.
what about parallel compression GR, how much DB you push it?
what you think about putting drum channels bus, parallel compressed drum buss and bass guitar to one group, and then add this glue together compression stuff 2,3 DB of GR, 30 ms attack and musical relese?
Would it be overkill to glue drum bus, and then again glue drum bass with parallel drum and bass guitar?
