4.0 out of 5 stars continued excellence, 19 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Obzen (Audio CD)
The hype when meshuggah release a new work is the high point of us meshuggah fans year,we know that they wont ever be the biggest band in the world,they cant be that,we know that many see them as noise and thats up to them,why argue?,but what we know also is that meshuggah will bring the metal full tilt and then some.
It is also great to have tomas haake back on drums after using a drum machine on their previous album which was great as well of course but was essentially one song whipping its way down various corridors,now they return with an album of non harmonious tracks that are brutal and kinda warped.
The band are as forward thinking as they can be here again and the guitars feel like a hammer to the head at times,bits of synthesizer pop up to give the songs a bit more identity but not to have us humming along really,jens barks his vocals as he always does rarely varying in his sound and the remaining group go for the throat like a pack of wild wolves.
There are bands that try and sound like meshuggah but they cant do it and even if they get close i have no real interest but meshuggah always command something with me,they are immense live,spiritual almost,hypnotic for sure,this is a great album,is it their best?well its easy to think that as its new and the excitement is still fresh,time will tell,i have spun this a good few times now and notice something new each time and thats the secret perhaps,within their vast riffage lies something that is hard to describe but impossible to brush aside.
