Gotta agree, Obzen is already a step in this direction and is brutal as fuck.

Obzen is heavier but this is way more rewarding as an album.

I really dug Combustion. They always know how to kick off an album.

IMO that's definately not the case. Only Combustion, Bleed , Pravus and Dancers stand out to me on their own while the rest are just streamlined Meshuggah, having no traits to stand out (especally when compared to the rest of their albums).

Well, obZen > this for me, but not by a long shot. Meshuggah are basically Meshuggah in each one of their records, but the standouts on Obzen are better than Koloss' (c'mon, Dancers, Combustion and Bleed rule).

You can't possibly be amused by this mechanical sounding bullshit can you? Where is the emotion, textures or really even instrumental creativity. They span a stupid gimmick over god knows how many songs and you fools eat up one time after another. There is nothing offered here other than rehashed shit over and over again that would be insufferably boring for even one band to do this long but then god forbid other bands followed in their robotic footsteps. This music isn't just bad it is offensively unhuman, it is a more mechanical process than any pop song to grace the top 40. Hell at least even nickelback has that motive down, they can sing about real life and some fluidity unlike this stark husk of an album.



My gif representation of this album rehashed 50 times: https://gcps.desire2learn.com/d2l/lor/viewer/viewFile.d2lfile/6605/4978/woman_conveyor_belt_hammer_hg_clr.gif

Well, Propose does have a purpose on what he said. (get it?)

But yeah he has a point, this definately isn't my thing either.

@Propose: You do realise that the main appeal of Meshuggah is their mechnical and soulless feel through repetition right? Also sure you don't have to like it but saying they constantly rehash is simply ignorant. All of their LP's are similar yet have their own trait which makes their outputs constantly different (e.g. Catch 33's far more amtospheric than all of their efforts, relies more on repetiton than all of their LP's and has an narrative musically and lyrically)

How is that appealing? Both of those are negative traits I'd prescribe to a bad album. That's like saying the main appeal of Brokencyde is their horrid songwriting, beats and vocals also sure I don't have to like it.
