      "Behind me on the drums, the best drummer in the world - Mikkey Dee!". It can't go wrong.
      "Nordic Beast" I love it! Where did this come from? Never heard of this project before.
      That supergroup sounds great! At leats, it's not an "Asking Alexandria + Black Veil Bride + Falling in Reverse" or a "Mastodon + Soulfly + Dillinger Thing Plan"...
      Don't Ask
      Holy****ingshit, are you saying that there is going to be a supergroup featuring members of Mastodon and The Dillinger Escape Plan? I'm upvoting you just for letting me know about this fantastic news (news to me at least)! Edit: Holyshitholyshitholyshit, I just found out that The Mars Volta are going to be featured in it as well! Never really heard more of Soulfly than their name, but I suppose I will have to check them out after hearing this! This could be ridiculously amazing!
      Why? 'Cause you don't know enough about DEP and Mastodon to realize that the latter will probably be awesome?
      mikkey dee also played with king diamond too! as for the group it sounds promising, lets hope for some material soon
