Roger Patterson of Atheist.

Favourite song? Unquestionable Presence, although it doesn't have nearly as much bass as most Atheist songs, it just rips as a whole.
Mic Todd from Coheed. and Delerium Trigger, for no real reason

I disagree Slipknot is more technical than Necrophagist and more brutal than Suffocation, that's why I do hardcore dances to it with my 14 year old friends.
