Like Marinao said, opinion is still pending, but early feelings.....

Marrow is THE shit. One of the best Meshuggah songs in ages. I Am Colossus is also a standout. Last Vigil is pretty awesome but not In Death - Is Death level of awesome.

On the other hand, The Hurt That Finds You is not doing much for me at the moment. The snare overpowers the guitars to an extent (unlike tracks like Combustion or I which also have a lot of snare) which is a bit frustrating. However, with this band I would never write any track off in the space of a day or two.

As a whole though, the album delivers hard yet again. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to putting the end of Marrow on repeat....

Is that a blastbeat I hear at 2:05 in The Hurt That Finds You First? neat!


After initially being disappointed that this album isn't exactly like obZen, it's slowly starting to grow on me. It doesn't fuck on the first date. It asks for some effort before spreading it's juicy clam!

Finally managed to listen to it now. Those tempo ramps in Swarm are pretty awesome, Marrow, The Hurt and Demon's Name also stuck with me the most. Cool album but stil ain't proper hooked yet, I think it's one of those releases that I might have to read the lyrics along with the music to get the feel of it. DEI & Nothing still remain as my favs though!

It's the Shug, so it's awesome, but I don't think I'm going to end up liking it as much as ObZen. I loved every track on that record; there are a few on this ("The Hurt...", "Break Those Bones...", "Swarm") that are cool but don't really excite me. They could grow on me tho, Shuggah songs tend to do that.

Anyone want to guess who wrote what? I always like doing that with new Shuggah albums. "The Demon's..." is definitely Fredrik and I would bet that "I am Colossus" and "Demiurge" are Marten's, the other are a little tougher though. My guesses.

I am colssus:Marten
demon's name: Fredrik
do not look down:Marten
Behind the sun:Marten
the hurt: fredrik
marrow:fredrik
break those bones:marten
swarm:fredrik
demiruge:marten

I read in an interview that marten wrote every song except Marrow and Demons name. He also said there was a lot of co writing, but for the most part he wrote pretty much everything. And Jens actually wrote Behind the Sun, which is easily one of the best tunes on the album. Go Jens! write more shit next time!

I feel that the album is fantastic overall. The increased diversity in the drumming and riffwork is fresh for them. Some of the grooves are incredibly punishing, and I like mindfucks like the annoying build-down at the end of The Hurt...

The Last Vigil, whilst cool, is a bit too long for my liking. I come to Meshuggah to feel like I'm oscillating in 10,000 tonne gyroscope in space, not to feel like I'm doing heroin.

Oh and I take back what I said about the Marrow riff haha. Totally works in the context of the song. But don't get me wrong. Any other band would have made that riff sound fucking lame, trust me.

Also, I would come to the conclusion that this is not their best work so far, simply because it collectively carries nowhere near as much composure as an album as Catch33 or Obzen. The songs are much more varied in comparison, which is good, but albums like Catch33 are masterpieces and true auditory journeys. This album is excellent, but is just a collection of songs with little to lay claim to an 'album story'. IMO.

This. Although I wouldn't think obZen is the best Meshuggah example of that. Chaosphere has more of that feel if you ask me.

Yeah probably. I think Catch33 and I are obviously the pinnacle, as they were written to be one long muhfuckin piece.

I feel Obzen has a bit more flow than Chaosphere though, but I see where you're coming from.

All in all, this feels like one of their least coherent albums to date. Even though the individual songs are bitching, it takes something away from it for me when it doesn't flow that sublimely as a whole.

I think Kolossless isn't up to par with their best work. Break those bones is still my favorite song. :(

Definitely one of my favorites.

can't relate to any of these opinions.

anyone else get tripped up by the second riff in the opening track? sounds like it's getting faster, but it isn't. love that.

Understood and agreed. Reminds me of a quote from The Curious Incident of The Dog in The Nighttime

Just got the album in the mail. Definitely a lot more co-writing on this album.

I am colossus: marten, fredrik
Demon:fredrik
Do not look down: tomas, marten, fredrik
Behind the sun: jens (wtf? lol didn't see that coming.)
Hurt: marten
marrow:tomas, marten,fredrik
break:marten
swarm:tomas, marten, fredrik
demiurge:marten
last vigil:marten

The lyrics are cool as always, although I've always felt Hakke's best writing was on Chaosphere. Favorite lyrics ever, both in writing and how Jens delivered them on the record.

Also I'm agreement with most that thought this won't end up being my favorite from them, I can guarantee it'll still be my metal AOTY.

Listening to this for the first time, I jumped straight to Marrow to see what the fuss was all about.

...It feels like I'm getting lovingly raped by a giant robotic bear.
