MESHUGGAH Drummer Marries CRUCIFIED BARBARA Bassist

Drummer Tomas Haake of Swedish experimental extreme metallers MESHUGGAH married bassist Ida Evileye (real name: Ida Stenbacka) of the Swedish all-girl hard rock band CRUCIFIED BARBARA last week in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In a recent interview with Decibel magazine, Haake spoke about the progress of the songwriting sessions for MESHUGGAH's follow-up 2008's "obZen".

Regarding the approach to the new music, the drummer said, "Maybe not try to be as anal about every single little hit [that] has to be super-tight but be more focused on the vibe of a track and let some of those tiny errors slip through. I think that kinda breeds a bit of life into a song."

Released in March 2008, "obZen" album debuted at No. 59 on The Billboard 200 chart and at No. 14 on the iTunes Top Rock Albums chart.

"obZen" was nominated in the "Best Hard Rock" category at the Swedish Grammis awards, which was held January 7, 2009 at Hovet in Stockholm.

MESHUGGAH's first DVD, "Alive" sold around 3,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 8 on the Top Music Videos chart.

CRUCIFIED BARBARA is currently writing material for its third full-length album, tentatively due later in the year.

CRUCIFIED BARBARA's second full-length album, "Til Death Do Us Party", was released in February 2009. The CD was produced by Mats Levén (THERION, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, KRUX, TREAT, AT VANCE, ABSTRAKT ALGEBRA) and features guest appearances by guitarist Phil Campbell (MOTÖRHEAD) and Mats Levén.
