    Not related to the new album, but I wish they could do something like this again.

    Yeah so do I! There's something about the bass and drum combination that is just so raw and dark. Must've listened to that like a 100 times at least. Stoked for the new album though!

    I've seen them 10 times in five different countries since 2001 and I agree. You need to commit to this road trip.

    Ivory Tower might be one of their best songs ever. You'll understand what I mean when you hear it. :hbang: :metal: ;)

    Surprised it didn't leak earlier! I'm gonna wait until Friday, when I'm home alone with a cold beer to enjoy this baby. :hbang:

    I'm very confident in saying that it's their best since Nothing.

    I agree if you don't count "I"... to me "I" is their pinnacle of awesomeness. This record is a close second.

    I can't choose. I love each album equally. When I think about it, it's the only metal band that this happens.

    I read somewhere that Dick wrote for the first time and that 6 of the 10 songs are all him and Haake. That could explain a bit of the freshness in the riffs and also the fact that Fredrik has a lot more ambient stuff and intricate solos going on than recently.

    Might have been a good way to take some of the riff-writing pressure off him and Marten.

    me too!
    I listened to it one month ago for a review and I thought to see it leaked the next day... so good job this time, an applause to Nuclear Blast.

    I don't know if is one of my favourites, but is extremely heavy. like... a lot.
    You take Koloss and you put into the heavyness of Catch33 and some rythmical thougts of I.

    and the song Stifled? the beginning? THE SOUND. Unbelievable.

    Aah, the painful wait is soon over! Making my first playthrough and figuring out the solo kept me busy though :)

    Probably the best one I've seen yet! I'm sure figuring out the solo wasn't easy...haven't seen anyone else tackle it either, but then again I've only seen 3 or 4 other covers of this song.

    Seems like Frederik really stepped up his solo game on this album. Guess we'll find out tomorrow!

    Unless my eyes are tricking me, in the drumming inspiration video with Haake it looks like he's playing 24 inch bass drums, more precisely 24x14. That would make him one of many doublestroke-oriented, highly technical foot-players to convert to big bass drums.
    Very cool.

    Just a beastly album. I hope my neighbors like Meshuggah because they will be shaken awake and rocked to sleep by them for the foreseeable future.

    Monstrocity is just the absolute business.
