5.0 out of 5 stars The music that inspires metal musicians, 20 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Destroy Erase Improve: Reloaded (Audio CD)
Meshuggah are fairly underground, while actually at the forefront of metal. Lots of bands, such as Metallica, Tool, Deftones, have been influenced by their sound. This album was the one that got them recognised, and for a good reason.

Accessible isn't really a word you can use to describe Meshuggah's music, but on a relative scale, DEI is the most accessible album. When first checking them out from other's recommendations I found a lot of their stuff very difficult to like, but when I heard the song Future Breed Machine something clicked. You might hate it after the first few listens, but you could find a rhythmic groove that for some reason sticks in your head, and the songs may grow on you.

Just saying other people like it isn't really a good reason alone, but there are some rhythmic hooks, crazy solos, a good mix of contrasts (acrid placidity). Also, they use polyrhythms over a basic standard 4/4 beat to create amazing grooves, which if you get into, will leaves its mark musically on you.

This kind of stuff is very heavy, and a lot of people find the fairly robotic vocals annoying. However, if you find you like it, the album stays fresh listen after listen. This album represents an evolution in metal... beep beep beep beep
