5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect album for an incredible group, 3 May 2011
This review is from: Obzen (Audio CD)
Really hard to describe the Meshuggah music, is so complex. But listening their pieces I think to a word, resuming their music, but it's seem so hard to use a word like this: swing. Swing?????? Yes, their structure, their complexity, their violent sounds in the end are ..... swinging. Obviously I use swing not in the "technical" terms, but in the end I feel in a way similar to the listening to an orchestra of a swing era. All is fluent, groovy, your leg are slightly moving, but in the same time Meshuggah are creating an intricate rhythm, screamin, and shooting notes in your ear.
Obviously I'm exagerating, but every time I read about Meshuggah the complexity is emphasized, but the greatness of this group is that every single moment is grooving.
I love this group, all their album but every album is better than the previous one. And Frederck Thorendal is so creative, is solo are dramatic, sweet, evocative, one of the most creative guitarist.
Listen it before you buy, Meshuggah are not simple, but feel the groove, then mind about the complexity.
