Omar LOVES his dissonance. It had to grow on me, truthfully, but now I can't get enough of it.
I highly suggest checking out De-loused in the Comatorium, and after that, Francis the Mute. They are earlier releases with their previous drummer Jon Theodore, but by no means is his playing anything less than great. They do some really cool things with heavy latin rhythms. De-loused is definitely my favorite. And Flea plays bass on this one, which is awesome.
