"I'm pretty fanatic cause it's merely fastness and tightness that counts. I love playing as hard, tight and fast as I can, pushing myself to get better on drums by suffering extreme muscle aches."As musical inspiration Kalksma names Paradise Lost, Nick Barker, Death (with Gene Hoglan or Sean Reinert), A Perfect Circle ("great drummer"), Anathema, Nile, Morbid Angel, In Flames, Dark Tranquility, Depeche Mode, Katatonia (the Swedish band), Opeth, Emperor and Sepultura.
"My plans are to play as much as possible, to tour as much as possible, to record as much as possible and releasing my own music, which I am writing all the time, and see what happens. I also play guitar, bass and keys, and I sing."However, in 2004 Kalksma is forced to keep rest for several months due to an arm injury (a sinew is inflamated). The band recruited Fedor Tieleman (M-90's) to replace him until Thomas was fully recovered.
