Tomas Haake


Drummer for Swedish insane metal band Meshuggah. He's got independence that would scare most other drummers, and the crazy chops to go with it. Yeah, I know he didn't record the drums for Catch 33 but so what? It's one CD. Their next CD will be different and I'm sure he'll record the drums himself. It was to save time. He has nothing to prove anymore and obviously doesn't have a big ego like most drummers do.

Tomas Haake joined on drums before Meshuggah recorded their first LP, "Contradictions Collapse," which was released in 1991. The band had signed a recording deal with the German record label Nuclar Blast, which specializes in metal releases. The songs on this record are much longer and more complicated in both structure and rhythmics. The record company did nothing to promote the album, which consequently sold badly. Between this record and the next one, guitarist/vocalist Jens Kidman decided to concentrate on the singing and left the guitar duties to Mårten Hagström. Hagström had played in a band with drummer Tomas Haake way back when they were in the sixth grade! He feels that the song title "Building a Big Building" from that time accurately characterizes that band...
