Expecting a lot of drum covers for Into Decay. That intro seems to be funny as hell to play.
The drumming is a lot more spazzy and there is more standard "melody" than on any other album besides maybe DEI.
I expected a lot after those two singles, but right now I'd say they surpassed my expectations. Amazing record.
Front to back, one of the best metal albums made in recent years. Shockingly good!
Haven't even heard the whole album yet (hoping my copy arrives tonight) but just based on the increase in intensity from Born in Dissonance->Nostrum->Clockworks I'm comfortable saying shame on any and all naysayers. They're still f'ing Meshuggah, and they just proved the sh!t out of it.
Well said! Seriously, if DLG likes it this much isn't that akin to hell freezing over?
Spot on. This album absolutely crushes.
Keeping in mind that I wouldn't call myself a huge Meshuggah fan or anything and although I've typically always liked what I've heard from them, this album thus far doesn't strike or move me in any way, Clockwork aside
Ok, this just happened and I retract my previous statement. I also like the comment about it being reminiscent of Blade Runner
More for the rest of us!
Not that you haven't given their disco a good spin, but for me Meshuggah has always been an acquired taste. I've found the 'Shuggah albums that have the longest lasting impact on me are the ones that don't grab me at first, but instead unfold or "click" with repeated listens.
All of that aside I should keep my big mouth shut as I still haven't heard but three tracks!
Only listened once but i like allot so far. Need more time with it there's a.couple songs in the middle I found very similliar but with more listens sure it will all sink in.
Opening track slays.
This album is ridiculous...
Fredrik take a bow!!! Monstrosity
I love it. Can't wait for it to sink in more and grab hold
Ivory Tower and Stifled.... Wow
This is my favourite album since Nothing
EDIT - our rage wont die!!!!
omg now I know why "Monstrocity" has been bugging me so much.
I keep thinking of Monstro Town from Mario RPG
clockwork is definitely a favorite, just classic meshuggah. koloss was a little underwhelming for me but this album is right up there with catch33 for me.
also - is nostrum in drop Eb?
i agree with all of this. it just really jams and doesn't try and get weird and obtuse for the sake of it. some of the koloss tracks felt either half baked, or maybe they were just getting a little burned out the low-n-slow thing they've been doing for the last handful of albums.
this album has great energy, and they've seem to gotten a lot better at timing when they change the pace or up the ante. .....does that make sense?
either way i'm way more impressed with what they did here than i am with koloss, and i'd say the overall sound took a much larger shift than obzen did coming off of nothing. (if we're talking about traditional albums and not the concept stuff like I and catch 33)
gonna be slamming this thing in the rotation in my car for weeks, if not months.
True story...I just destroyed my clock that was on my wall from jamming hard to the song "Clockworks" on accident as I was head banging and going nuts like air guitaring...overall throwing myself arms and body all over the place in my room ...almost as if I were in a mosh pit only this was inside my room and I plowed right into my clock and broke and destroyed it into many pieces.
Ordering me a "Steampunk" looking clock for my room wall clock now.
Yes so far "Clockworks" is my favorite song thus far...but the others are still up there with it.
I mean a perfect album from start to finish what's not to like? I am loving the atmosphere I am getting with this album. I was suffering from some pretty hard depression these past 2 Weeks and I just want to thank Meshuggah for releasing this album as it has begun to rise me way up.
Why wouldn't you count Catch 33? It's definitely not an EP!
It was a concept album, though. No real drums and it can be fairly monotonous if you don't approach it as one long, brooding song. Still my favorite, though.
