DRUM! MAGAZINE PRESENTS: MESHUGGAH's TOMAS HAAKE

DRUM! PRESENTS: MESHUGGAH's TOMAS HAAKE - 2012-04-19

2012-04-19 - MESHUGGAH drummer, lyricist, and vertigo-inducer Tomas Haake is featured on the cover of DRUM! Magazine’s May 2012 issue (#191), available at newsstands now. Assistant Editor Andrew Lentz braved the crowd at the band’s January listening party in Fullerton, California to listen to the album, braved the noise level at January’s NAMM Convention in Anaheim, California to interview Haake, and then returned home to Northern California haggard & sleepless to face a deadline and piece the 8-page feature together. That takes chutzpah.

“When you ride metal’s bleeding edge,” writes Lentz, “your biggest competition is yourself. In a counterintuitive move, MESHUGGAH’s maestro of the mathematical beat-down, Tomas Haake found a way to upstage himself on KOLOSS – by playing less.”

The feature – with photos by world-renowned photographer Neil Zlozower - covers the making of the album & MESHUGGAH’s writing process, Neal Peart’s signature temple blocks, rim shots & strikezones, the difference between performing live & doing drum clinics, and a sidebar with MESHUGGAH bassist Dick Lövgren.
