Now that new track, that's what I'm looking for.

Pretty interesting discussion piece, even Chimp Spanner chimes in with comments.
The main thing I'm wondering is why it always takes them so damn long to come out with anything.


There's a lot of good points in that article.

Obzen, Catch 33, and Eye (I?) didn't really do it for me. I love Nothing, but I guess I didn't need more albums that didn't do the same style nearly as well. I mean on Obzen, I only found 2 or 3 significant riffs on the entire album that actually had rests in them.

I think whats really been killing EVERYONE is the leads. What the f**k Fredrik? You can't release Sol Niger Within and then just barely play any solos anymore. And the ones you do play are really half assed.

Yea exactly. I and Catch were the albums that got me into them, but after getting Nothing I listen to that almost exclusively now. Hopefully we get some more tasty leads like the one in the new track.

You took that wrong. I actually meant they were veering even more in the pop direction. There's some djenty stuff there, but it's barely in the same family as Meshuggah any more. I actually like this new single better than most of the stuff on the last record. If you're gonna go catchy, embrace it!

I thought the new periphs tune was pretty bad. It was all over the place and mixed horribly. That snare ewww

In a world where...metal is all about polyrhythms and down-tuned guitars...

</LaFontaine voice>

EDIT: Just noticed that 0:43 to the end sounds a lot like something Hagstrom would write. Maybe the Last Vigil?

Double post. :-D

Amazon UK has released samples for the entire album.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007D2RHJK/

If nothing else, it sounds like this'll be their most diverse release to date.

Demon's Name is Surveillance, Swarm, Demiurge, and The Last Vigil are all songs I'm super excited to the full versions of. The rest, I've either heard before or I'm just not into them.

I mean their samples, of course. :drunk:

EDIT: album's pretty sweet! check out the leak if you can't wait for the official release on the 26th.

EDIT 2: this album is the best meshuggah's ever sounded. the guitars and drums sounds so ENORMOUS.

It's great. Seems to be some weird mashup if Chaosphere, Nothing, and Obzen. Production is definitely best they've ever had imo. s**t rocks.

OK I'm the asshole.

Do Not Look Down rocks. But. This album is BORING. Do something new. Do a drum fill. Do anything other that half-whole diminished. SERIOUSLY.

PRODUCTION: Sounds great until any double bass part. Then it pumps worse than any record I've ever heard. It's unlistenable, AND I DIG OVER THE TOP BRICKWALLED stuff.

I'll give it two or three more spins before it hits the shelf. But wow what a snooze

Maybe it will grow on you after a few more listens? Maybe not. :( Swarm is one of my fav Meshuggah tracks now. :) All Meshuggah albums since Chaosphere have been slow burns for me, and this one is growing on me more all the time. Sorry you don't like it man! You're a Meshuggah cat, so that's gotta be disappointing. There is plenty of other good metal out there!

Swarm should have been the new single.

So true! Do Not Look Down is great, but the first track they released was certainly not single material.

Swarm and Behind the Sun are the best tracks on the album IMO. Do Not Look Down's good too. I can't decide if I like Demiurge, Marrow has some cool solos, and most of the other songs just have heavy passages that I like.

I bought the DEI reissue with Koloss. I've decided that Meshuggah is a lot like Incubus. The later stuff is completely OK until you listen to Science - then you realize you are settling.

I DO like the later 'shuggah stuff, but man... DEI. I was quickly reminded why it's my favorite metal record.

I wish Hagstrom could still write stuff like Acrid Placidity. Last Vigil was a big letdown...

New album sounds great. Closer to Nothing and Chaosphere. It's more straight-forward but not as thrash as DEI. Definitely their best IMHO since Chaosphere, although I did like I.

Favourite track so far is Behind the Sun by far.

If it does, at least we have Amogh Symphony...

I side with Stem on this album. I like it, but not until around the 10th time around or so.
