Niklas has a refreshing philosophy to drumming. He’s technically very good, but the thing you’ll soon hear (or not hear!) is that he doesn’t feel the need to keep proving it! For him, his contribution is all about supporting the song. Everything starts with the song. If it needs a complex fill he’ll gladly supply one, but on the whole you’ll notice that a lot of the drumming is remarkably simple and clean, designed to fit with the groove and bring the song to the forefront rather than show of his own talents.
