And ObZen and Koloss both rule equally imo- ObZen is more intense, Koloss is more accessible/fun

"Its pussy pounding music"



A few weeks ago I had a one night stand with a girl and put on "I" for about a minute, confused the shit out of her and I was the only person in that situation who found it amusing but totally worth it

I think Koloss is easily their worst record except for Contradictions. It's still solid (a 3.5 for me) but it just doesn't have the power and fury of all their other releases; that said there are some sick jams and grooves.

I could see people having a problem with Koloss because it doesn't really have its own identity like their other albums, but I love it because it's a good summary of their career thus far

Yeah that's a fair assessment, Lucca.

I feel like Koloss has its own thing for sure, it's maybe more straighforward but its heavy and groovy compared to the spastic, frenetic atmosphere of obZen. To me, Koloss is more consistent, but obZen just wasn't my cup of tea.

You just got to listen to it more; it's a grower. I thought it sucked diltch at first but overtime it's become a 5. Cheers m/

I dunno, I mean I love Koloss and the album flows nicely and everything but I still think that each song on that album is basically just a song from one of their previous albums but touched up on. Break Those Bones is slow and dark like Catch Thirtythree, Marrow reminds me like something off Chaosophere, Hurt that Finds You is thrashy like their older stuff, I Am Colossus is kinda like a better version of Stengah with its weird vocal patterns and grooves, Demons Name is super intense like Bleed, etc etc

Once again, not at all a knock on Koloss- it's a 5 for me, but it doesn't get as much points for originality like Catch Thirtythree or something

I became a fanboy in 2002 when Nothing was first released, at that point all I was really into was nu-metal and the big four and maybe a couple of super well known death metal like Morbid Angel and Cannibal Corpse, so Meshuggah completely changed what I thought music was.
