It's like putting Hitchcock in the same room with contemporary horror and suspense film makers.

Yep, Meshuggah has depth, their music has jazz influences, it's technical yet fierce and there's a method

behind the madness. I'm not going to go as far to get on my knees and giving the band fellatio but they're a

talented group with structure and a backround in music. Most contemporary djent bands are 24 year old high

school dropouts who can't read music who pound away on their guitar, tremelo picking the same 3 different

riffs in random orders with the reverb jacked up with some kid who works the night shift at Sunoco screaming

his guts out to some random words that sound "cool" and "violent" that he wrote on the back of a domino's

pizza box because he was too lazy to look for paper.

Played this for my neighbors this afternoon, given that they woke me before time. I'm sure the thuds in Break Those Bones at full volume made their stomachs turn. Good times

djent bands should be categorized as such for performing "the act of ripping off meshuggah's sound and queefing all over it." ergo, meshuggah can't possibly be djent! that would simply make no sense

Wouldn't expect a junior high Meshugga fan to know Death. I'm still surprised how many "true" metal fans have never of heard of Death. On Sputnik that sounds absurd, but in the real world they are about as common as a redneck in a boot store.

It is indeed very depressing to hear a guy wearing a Cannibal Corpse say the phrase "I've never heard of Death, are they any good?"

Old school death metal is in my opinion the best genre of music out there, next to second wave black metal and early 90's thrash.
