n.

1. A metal band from Sweden whose music features many dizzingly complex polyrhythms and hemiolas characteristic of free jazz and African drumming.

2. A metal group whose rhythmic concepts tend to go right over the heads of most metal fans, leading them to pigeonhole the band with such descriptions as "toughest band I've ever heard," thus raping them of the credibility they deserve.

adj.

1. Yiddish for "crazy."
