^ Not really. I have them as technical metal on iTunes. But then again they have jazz fusion and progressive elements now and then.

This is very impressive. After having listened to this numerous times now I can conclude that Bleed is one of the best they've written yet. That song really shows what Fredrik and Mårten are capable of as guitarists. Not to mention Haake!

Like on 'I', their influences from films & books etc. really are present, especially on This Spiteful Snake; Sounds like something taken directly from Predator.

I also like the fact that you can't tell the difference between the drum kit from Catch Thirtythree and this (apart from the approach taken on some songs) now that Tomas is back behind the kit. He's indeed a machine.

Is Meshuggah a Death Metal band?

More like country and pop!

Honestly DirtyS4nch3z, you can read my fucking mind. I've been playing that song at least 10 times a day for the last week. The drumming on this album alone wins them an award!
Oh, I was reading an interview with these guys in Revolver Mag. Haake was saying that it took him 5 months to practice and lay down the triplets on his double bass on the song Bleed. They were also saying that some of the songs were so complicated to play in the studio that they have no idea how they're going to recreate them live. Fuck!

^Yea, I'm still waiting for some YouTube vids to see this (Bleed particularly) being executed live with my own eyes.

No offense but all these feelingless tiresome wankery guitarists with sweeping n shit alongside those 271 BPM blastbeat drummers can go home. That song takes technical riffing/drumming to a new level. And the precision is just inhuman.

Meshuggah sure isn't a classic death metal band in the sense of Morbid Angel is a death metal band.

pointing out a logical flaw in someone's post is not over-analyzing.

I mean compared to a lot of extreme/technical metal out there, Meshuggah is being creative with the technicality ("Bleed"). It's just a matter of opinion so I won't bother justifying why I don't have a 'logical flaw' in my post.
