I read that it took Haake 5 monthes to get that song perfect from end to end.

I work with a drummer and brought the album for him to listen to the day after I bought it. He had his head phones on but from his cube I heard him go "Jesus" at the 50 second mark in "Combustion" and then again when "Bleed" came on. He now owns "Obzen" and "Chaosphere", I'm gonna make sure he picks up "Nothing" "I" and "Catch 33" too.

Now Playing: Roadrunner United - "The Dagger"
