    Dammit I was going to post essentially the same thing. I’m getting a huge Meshuggah DEI vibe plus their own craziness added to it. Maybe Album of the Year for me, really a complex, brutal album.

    Nothing against Meta, it's one of my all time favorites, but Mordial sounds so much more technical and unhinged, but still insanely tight.

    I seriously cannot stop laughing like a madman while listening to it.

    This album is blowing my mind. The guitar tone is so chunky and nasty, it's amazing.

    I was sitting on the train, giving it my first listen and couldn't help myself just going "hohohohohoooooo" because of the chunky madness messing with my brain. People looked at me as if i was crazy.

    That's basically me yesterday haha. I also was on the train and when the album started, 2/3 of time my face was looking like something stinks somewhere. You know, the "shit, that's brutal" face.

    Album of the year for me. Maybe even the decade.

    Mind blown.

    I can't even process this. This album is amazing. Vague Skies is one of the single coolest songs I've heard in years.

    I think Pedram from Frontierer said something about a ring modulator? Or maybe an LFO connected to control a pitch shifter. Either way it's cool as fuck, lol.

    I really, really like this album, definitely in my top 5 this year, I don't really think it's better than Meta outside of the absolutely crushing production. I think they leaned into the catchier aspects they've always had, which isn't a bad thing, those just aren't the things that pull me in with this band.

    It's a whammy and he programs all the shifts in midi.

    Which is apparently a pain because they don't play to a click.

    I either read this in an interview or heard this in an interview but I can't remember where.

    That's kinda... boring. I was expecting something more out of left field than that. Still a great effect though.

    Great album but all the "pew pews" and Gojira-style string rakes in every second bar kinda throws me off. Same thing with Frontierer but they overdo it even more and they usually don't even fit the song that well. :2c:

    It's the EQD data croupter.

    Whammy is the pitch glides, not the pew pews

    I'm way late to party, but I had never checked out these guys until now and man... I haven't been this taken back by some new music in quite a while. I started with the new album and I'm working backwards, but it feels like I'm listening to progressive music for the very first time, again lol. It's not everyday music, but perfect for those time you want your brain disgustingly scrambled.
