Re: Tomas Haake
I respect Tomas Haake and the guys of Meshuggah to the highest extent. I think that they don't just create music, but an experience, a world all their own. Their vocalist Jens described it as writing colors, not music. And I completely agree, especially the way Tomas plays. Everything from his incredible endurance on double bass to his complete knowledge of every note that the band plays, expecting each off-time rhythm. He's a master of his art.
And if you want to see a damn good groove, look up "Straws Pulled At Random".
