This isn't really on topic, but would anybody like to point me towards a good Meshuggah starting point? I tried them out a few years ago and it didn't appeal to me, but over the past year or so I've been finding that I now like a lot of the music (mostly non-metal) I brushed off in the past, so I wanna give them another shot.

I've been the same Pursuit_Of_Vikings, I like Meshuggah but have never truly clicked. But I think if the song Future Breed Machine doesn't do it for you then nothing will.

Thanks Cynic. At this point it isn't cutting it for me, and the vocalist is just as irritating as he was when I was 15. I'm gonna have to give it multiple listens, though. Maybe it will sink in, but probably not...I'm gonna go listen to The Arcane Order now. They are much more interesting to me.

^the song "war", by meshuggah, was the song that got me into the band. Just pure drumming skankiness. The problem is, it's so horribly different from the rest of their songs. The rest of their music is a big collection of complex rhtym arrangements, which can be appreciated in itself, but it's not somehting that most people are easily drawn into. That song, even if you dont end up a fan of the band, will probably still sit in your music cache for quite some time.

Other than that, the songs I would most reccomend are Rational gaze, Future Breed machine, and Bleed.

You really have to appreciate the theoretical side of Meshuggah to truly understand get into them. Other than that it just sounds like they've been clipped together odds patterns.

Songs to check out.

Bleed
Future Breed Machine
Rational Gaze
Perpetual Black Second
New Millenium Cyanide Christ
Straws Pulled at Random (2nd half of the song rocks)

Straws Pulled at Random has to be my favorite Meshuggah song. Really, the Nothing album just blows my brain matter.

Funny you said that. Because up until about a weak ago, it was my least favourite. To the point where I skipped through most of the songs. Which is really odd, because your right. Brain matter, boom.

Yeah, I've never really been into Meshuggah either. I caught 'em live this year with Cynic and The Faceless and was underwhelmed (with Meshuggah, Cynic and The Faceless were awesome!)

now playing: pharaoh - never run
