5.0 out of 5 stars Behind The Sun
Koloss has an otherworldly bleakness about it, like a deserted planet, with ragged mountain ranges that stretch as far as the eye can see, endless terrains of black brown rock and dust storms that turn the sun to a hovering, ghostly coin. Some people seem to view this feeling of bleakness as a 'boring' element that runs through the album, but I love that. I like the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good
I expected more from Meshuggah, apart from the odd INCREDIBLE head spinning poly rhythm, the album is a bit of a slog if I'm honest. It's really experimental as to be expected from Meshuggah, but a much slower type of experimental with no excitement. It's okay. Highlight tracks are Swarm and I Am Colossus.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like music..., 25 May 2012
This review is from: Koloss (Audio CD)
...you own this already right?

You're not hovering over the buy button?

Meshuggah invented heaviness and the current Djent scene is an entire genre devoted to the worship of this band.
Surely one of the most important bands ever.

Yet again they educate the kids in simple polyrhymic ultra-heavy riffology.

Yet again they write metal anthems that will live forever (nearly every gig I went to last year you heard Meshuggah's 'Bleed' in the intervals).

4.0 out of 5 stars Koloss - they still manage to keep that dimensional gate open, 5 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Koloss (Audio CD)
If you can get over the fact that this album is best for disintegrating your nervous system and you willing to let that happen- it is worth the money.
Meshuggah never was about pleasure, rather to open a window into some unknown alien dimension which is best described in polyrhythmic machine-music - they were among the first to do that and they still do it well.
However while i was straight into their previous work Obzen, this one took some time.
The first half lacks a bit those intricate musical hooks which makes Meshuggah an eye opener, and uses straigthforward brutality instead, but the second half lives up to my expectations with mind bending tracks like Marrow, Swarm, Demiurge or the slowly groovin Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion.
The rest of the tracks still sound interesting enough to not to make this a bad balance - to be honest, there are tracks on their previous albums as well i keep skipping...
Overally this is another solid effort-they did not reinvent themselves, but delivered the goods!
