ya the band acts mostly as one large percussive unit who's swirling time signatures are meant to tear your soul from your body
vocals of shuggah is bad. I get that they are a live band but I feel the band would be so much better with spoken word mixed with shouts/growls at the right time.
favorite song by them in my limited experience would have to be marrow.
Check out contradictions collapse
^ its good if you like old metallica. not my cup of tea personally I feel its their worst release next to this

"Completely void of purpose."
It's just one new track and a live track released for free. The new track isn't even new, it's actually several years old. I don't think there ever was meant to be a purpose, just a "Hey let's release this because why not?" Like somebody else said, I think you're taking this a bit too seriously.
Anyway, I dug the track. They can do better but for an old b-side it's solid.
Well I mentioned in the review it was an older song. And trust me I didn't take the release seriously, but that doesn't its worth keeping around and revisiting. Hence the 2.

"The title track is easily the most underwhelming part of this release considering it is void of any passion (regardless of how mechanical Meshuggah's passion sounds) thanks to the absence of everyone but Tomas Haake, and his laziest vocoder work to date."
This track actually was recorded completely by the guitarist Fredrick Thordendal, which is why it sounds a lot like his solo record Sol Niger Within. As for lack of a climactic section, what do you call the final 1:45 if anything but climactic? I found this song to be one big build up to this final climax, a very progressive output from Thordendal.
I think the backlash against the release easily could have been avoided if they just called it a single like it really is. I think the fact that Scion was calling it an EP made everyone expect a lot more, and therefore the one old B-side they got just let a lot people down who were expecting new material.
thanks for the info Phil, I'll fix that up. I was told it was haake.

Why did people take this so seriously? It's a live song and an old B-side... and for a B-side it killed...
