Default Mario DuPlantier

I didn't see a thread for Mario on here so I guess I'll start one. He is the drummer for the Progressive/Groove Metal band Gojira. His drumming is very creative for metal and very interesting to listen to even if you don't like metal (I know most of the jazz cats on here would hate Gojira's vocals). His playing spans from solid grooves to extreme double bass beats to blasting and even to polyrhythms. Listen to the beginning of "The Art of Dying" for one of the coolest polyrhythmic metal grooves ever.
