    yeah, MonstroCity is massive. Just when you think they are done with mammoth riffs in the song, another lands on your head.

    Well so far I am only able to listen to this on my crappy earbuds but oh my God this is amazing. "Stifled" at the beginning is so low that my crappy earbuds and especially my MacBook speakers can't even pick it up it is like the speakers start convulsing or something, haha. The rest is coming through lovely regardless.

    Later this morning I will have the physical CD so I can blast it through my truck's system which should have no problems whatsoever with the low part of that particular song.

    Right now I am listening to "Ivory Tower" for the first time and I mean...uh...like...I am lost for words and feel as if I am a God escaping this planet. I have goosebumps all over popping out so hard I look like I have some sort of flesh disease.

    Man between this album and the new release from "Anaal Nathrakh" I may just explode...I seriously do not think I will be able to contain myself but it is going to be a LOVELY ride and one amazing Winter time this year for sure. :)

    I am loving this time in the history of music. :cool:

    Anyone else in love with the end of Stifled and the transition to Nonstrum? Kinda Fripp-ish.

    Also, the album is ....ingg HEAVY! I really want/hope to see them live in 2017.

    Yeah, the Stifled/Nonstrum track is my absolute favorite. I didn't care for Koloss that much and even Obzen didn't do a lot for me, but this is one of my favorites for sure. Catch 33 is still my absolute favorite, but this and Nothing are super close. Have to give it more time to be sure.

    I can not wait to see them on the 29th. Bucket list band for me for sure.

    This album is perhaps one of the most fun Meshuggah albums ever. It's got wild, savage drums beating down on you with some of the catchiest grooves in town. The guitars have massive attack and lots of wee fast quirks which are fantastic.

    This is a weird one. This may be their biggest change in sound on an album yet. I don't get the comments I've seen a bunch of places "THIS IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS KOLOSS AND OBZEN." The guitar tone sounds a lot more modern and the riffing style reminds me more of something like Vildhjarta than ever before (though obviously not exactly in that style). I liked it a lot on first listen, but I'll have to digest it more.

    Holy ...., By the Ton. How low is that? That's way lower than F or even D#, right?

    I honestly didn't really expect this album to be much. Their whole sound has been aped by so many bands and driven into the ground, but then I listened to the album and remembered Meshuggah are goddamn legends for a reason.

    Absolutely incredible album. "Monstrocity" might be one of my favorite Meshuggah songs ever, and this album is up there with Catch 33 for me.

    Stifled and clockwork are the standouts for me. Whole album is just immense

    The beautiful transition at the end of "Stifled" reminds me of the movie "Bladerunner" which happens to be my favorite movie. :)

    Minute 4:13...badass!!! This album is so damn good and I am like others here just jamming to it so hard...this album feels too good to be true...it can't be real.

    I have heard everything from Meshuggah and no this is nothing like anything they have ever done...music and tone wise. This is fresh ass Meshuggah.

    How low is Monstrocity? The opening riff reminds me a bit of Chaosphere/Nothing. Is it played on a 7?

    And good luck to all the Youtube guitarists on trying to figure out the solo in that song :lol: Fredrik really turned it up to 11 on this album.
