Too many fail.
It should be cool to see a fusion drummer play for an extreme band! I hope mohammed will step back though and let the guy write his own drum parts this time, should be sick as shit.
Here is my actual theory beyond the huge, hilarious jokes I have: If you're so pro-life and you're so pro-child, then adopt one that's already here, that's very unwanted and very alone and needs someone to take care of it.

Although I've never heard his name before, glad they found a replacement so soon. Unforunatly myspace song load times and a dial-up internet connection dont go hand in hand...

Marcos is very talented and a brilliant drummer, I watched him on YouTube but I have some fears about the Brutality of Necrophagist, he's a Jazz-Funk and experimental drummer, hope Necrophagist still Brutal!!
