tbh the only detractors I've seen of this band are people that simply don't get it

"You don't get it" is just a cop out, perhaps some people understand the band's musical approach, but simply dislike it?

Haha Emyay that would be awesome.



I feel ya tempest. I've seen lots of people just saying like "yeah i dont see the appeal in this kind of mechanical hammering" etc. Im hard pressed to say i've never seen anyone with a Meshuggah album scored at a 2/2.5 going in depth in the band's ability/lack of ability regarding some musical aspect of the respective album.

My issue is that it seems like this is more about enjoying the concept rather than the music itself. I am not looking for a chaotic mechanical sound that is extremely repetitive just because that is the point. I am looking for enjoyable music. I don't want to pretend like I am connecting with how it is mechanical and shit to enjoy it somehow.

"getting it" is rarely a conscious effort. you just listen a bunch and one day you get it

not at all, but really, it doesn't matter in the slightest if you don't get it... some people just don't
nothing to spout off 5 pages of shitposting about, like those propose or betray fags a few pages back

It is interesting also that people are more open to discussion in this thread but I get hammered on if I ever talk about death metal short of praise. People seem pretty defensive of death metal (classic, not the newer or melodic stuff).

Of course not man, but you do realise that's not the reason why we enjoy it right? The atmosphere of

one Meshuggah album becomes engulfing, hypnotic after you grasp it. When i saw them live i remember it

was the most tribal musical experience i had ever gone through. The constant pounding, the heavy tone,

the dissonance.. All of it works together to blast your senses



EDIT: if i gotta compare, Gojira have some of that atmosphere too, mainly in their longer songs. I

mean the heaviness and somewhat hypnotic effect caused by repetition and such.
