    whoa easy buddy, i didnt bring it up here, people are just always on my nuts every thread i post in

    to clarify - when i said boring double bass drumming, i didnt mean simply anyone that use double pedals. when i talk about boring double bass, i mean phrases of bass drumming with a cymbal or a hi hat or whatever keeping time, and every 3rd or 4th beat a snare hit. it happens alot in opeth, which is dissappointed (there is alot of good parts, it just seems like every song has a heavy section with this.) tomas haake, i think, its a great drummer. alot of jazz drummers used the hi hat to keep 4/4 and created rhythm with the other drums, which is nice. haakes drumming is groovey like i said, danceable. most of his bass drum rhythms are not just one big even line, but quick bursts, which intermingle well with the snare hits. polyrhythmic stuff is always more interesting than even, sometimes boring drumming imo. an example i guess would be when the drumming enters in Stengah, but i also like rational gaze

    Used to be Sonic Youth, but they finally disappointed with Sonic Nurse. Nice 20+ year run though.

    I like some of Meshuggah's stuff, and I'd bet they're one of those bands that is MUCH better live, but they're not exactly the first band that springs to mind when I think of "swing" or "groove". The concept of "groove" to me doesn't exactly jibe with the ultra-technical polyrhythms and rotating time signatures they use 90% of the time.

    I really have to be in the mood to listen to these guys, though. They're obviously incredibly talented players, but with no breaks from the onslaught or the screaming, they can be hard to listen to for very long for me.

    Wish I had those kinda chops, though!

    i think in a metal context meshuggah are very groovey. i purchased Nothing a while ago and Obzen recently and i was really impressed with Nothing. i enjoyed fredriks holdsworthish leads but not so much the barrage of tapping ones. whether or not they have an 'ultra technical' rhythmic structure is not really important to me. alot of the time it sounds (read: SOUNDS) like they use conventional, even sigs but just have alot of strange beat emphasis and just generally odd arrangment. i like the polyrhythmic relationship between the drums and the guitar, and how eventually they link up to the original bar. great stuff

    10k was very disappointing. So inconsistent, it has some good songs and some downright awful songs. If that's you favorite tool album you need to listen to the others or your an idiot.

    10000 days blew more than the other tool albums so that's a hell of a lot
