    miRthkon - for fans of Zappa, Panzerballett, Estradasphere, SGM, Thinking Plague, etc.

    Basically, if you're a fan of any of the bands in the subject line, you should get this. Even if you only have some vague, passing interest in RIO and/or avant-prog, you should get this anyway. The Zappa influence is probably strongest, but you can also hear Mr. Bungle worship, the quirky...

    Greatest Heavy Metal Drummers of All Time?

    Dirk Verbeuren - most notably of Scarve and Soilwork - would probably get my vote. Check out Scarve's Irradiant album for a pretty solid showcase.
