Basically, what things get that groove going.
You know, like swing beats in metal, etc.
Just really groovey stuff, no other way to explain it.
I've been fiddling with sync. stuff (off beats, etc.)

What are good things to do with the drums, etc.
Gore AND Core; unite!
3 drummers. Terry Bozzio, Vinnie Paul, Mike Portnoy. All have different, individual styles, and all of them kick ass.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.
White Zombie is perfect framework for standard groove metal drumbeats. Their 'La Sexorcisto' album it a good starting point.
