* LeadDrummer: Flo is, along with [[Music/MorbidAngel Pete Sandoval]], [[Music/{{Suffocation}} Mike Smith]], [[Music/HateEternal Derek Roddy]], [[Music/{{Nile}} George Kollias]], and [[Music/{{Origin}} John Longstreth]], viewed as one of ''the'' defining death metal drummers. Along with Longstreth and fellow Montreal resident [[Music/DespisedIcon Alex Pelletier]], he was also one of the first big-name users of gravity blasts[[note]]Pelletier actually predated him by at least two or three years, however, as he's on record as having used them as early as 2002 when he was in Deuterium. Flo was using rimshots while blasting since the 90s (which were a precursor to gravity blasts), but he wasn't using the real deal until around 2005. As a result, it's possible that Pelletier may have actually taught him and/or Justin Rousselle from Beneath the Massacre (another early adopter) the technique.[[/note]].
