I like where this is headed. Jens is thankfully not on full-thrust the entire song and the sound really is colossal.

Oh yes! That sounded brilliant, in full sense of the expression.

That's what I love about Meshuggah; they're never stuck with any kind of formula of doing things, they do what they please. If one chord movement sounds right, one it is, if five sounds right, five it is. There's just nothing pretentious about this band.

Gotta love posts 7 & 8, easily my favorite thing about Meshuggah is how polarizing they are.

"...polarizing..." - very well observed. But the qualifier here is that dude who has continuously tried to "...get into these guys..." is obviously on the IDIOT side of the divide.

I do like it, but I also found myself looking forward to a progression/dynamic that never really happened.

So I guess this puts me in the middle, somewhere between the poles...is this allowed??? Or does it make me an ignorant and moronic tasteless fvcking ashhole? :)

I can fully understand that some people are not into this band at all. They're not for everybody. I'm a huge fan and there are some Meshuggah tracks I can't get into.

But, I liked this one. It's not the best Meshuggah track ever or even close, but I still like it. And what I like about it is precisely it's simplicity.

Hellrat, that's perfectly fine in my books, but better check with DB to be 100% sure ;)

^ Nope, it just means you got high centered and stuck in the middle.

If you could get a little "higher" and listen again, maybe you'll find direction and get off center. ;)

And BTW, I'm not going to taste your fvcking ashhole. I don't care how many morons you can fit in there. lol

Ponderous, and beautiful. The bass is so dense... This track is definitely in the same family as "Nebulous" (a personal favorite) from 'Nothing'.

Because I was a 'Destroy Erase Improve' inductee, I''ve always had a soft spot for when these guys play in fast-forward mode but this track is a beast. Can't wait to hear the whole album.

Any guesses as to which track this is?

I like it but I’m relatively new to Djent.
Started with Osiris' “Discovery”.
I’m also really liking Vildhjarta.
People seem to calling them Meshuggah clones but I disagree.
Check out the song Dagger if you haven’t heard them.
I have to get Shuggy’s back catalog………sigh……..so little time……so little money.

Try listening to the tracks "Future Breed Machine" and "Combustion". They're standard issue Meshuggah and slightly catchy to boot. If those tracks don't do it for ya after a few spins then don't waste your time.

It's all about atmosphere and filling those gaps with MESHUGGAH. Also, they're not gonna throw out their most punishing song on the album right out the gate. Let's wait till the drop till we go one way or the other. The sound is a bit different then expected. But isn't that what MESHUGGAH is all about?

KREDD, I'd throw "New Millennium Cyanide Christ" in there as well, but RememberMetal is right: "Future Breed Machine" and "Combustion" should do the trick. If not, then they're not for you.
