"Oh, yeah. I love Gojira. And I'm crazy about Meshuggah. Periphery, I'm friends with those guys and they're a phenomenal band," he said.

Van Halen later added that yes – he can play "Bleed" on drums.Van Halen performed all the instruments on his upcoming Mammoth WVH's debut album, so I guess him being good at drums really isn't that surprising.

"Oh, yeah. I can play it," he said. "As a drummer, Meshuggah is just like my favorite because it's like a math problem, as a song. As a drummer, it's really fun to figure out the polyrhythmic stuff going on in each song. It's a treat, and I love it."

Mammoth WVH will release its self-titled debut album on June 11. Pre-orders are available here, and you can stream the latest single "Mammoth" below.
