Meshuggah - CD
9 New from
Meshuggahs undisputed masterpiece, re-recorded. Basically the same as the original print but with added bits, except this time around the music is so precise you would think it was done on a computer (a super-computer i might add), and each guitar is layered 4 or 5 times more so they sound even more crushing.
If you are like myself a long time meshuggah devotee you may prefer the original recording because it is slightly rough around the edges, and sounds like an amazing metal band filled with geniuses rather than a cyborg of infinitesimal power and intellect (and groove dont forget) from the future using a fist and an armpit to raspberry out a 7/4 beat. I personally listen to both as very distinct, but equally brilliant works of art.
so, if you are an existing meshuggah fan, get this. now. and go and see them live. cos theyre intense. if you are new to the band go for destroy erase improve or obzen: some may dispute the latter but i feel it is their most accessible record and therefore the best for new fans. and go see them live. finally if you dont like the band or have never heard of them you probably wont be reading this, and unless you're jewish, you probably wont even know what meshuggah means. its "crazy" by the way.
