Grooviest Meshuggah Grooves

a list dedicated to wolfe, MO and other followers of the shug
20meshuggah
obzen


dancers to a discordant system (7:58) - the swarm of bees make another appearance, nice long groove serves as a perfect closer to the album.
19meshuggah
nothing


nebulous (intro) - one of their slowest and most crushing
18meshuggah
destroy erase improve


suffer in truth (2:00) - SUFFER IN TRUUUUUUUUUUUUUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATH
17meshuggah
obzen


lethargica (3:01) - an apocalyptic groove that leaves no survivors. this one is enhanced because it comes in out of nowhere after a creepy little quiet section
16meshuggah
nothing (re-release)


perpetual black second (intro) - this one is cool because its fairly fast-paced compared to the other songs on this album. great example of how no one can make 3 notes sound as awesome as shug
15meshuggah
chaosphere


new millenium cyanide christ (intro / 4:21) - had to include this somewhere on the list. probably the most well-known shuggah song besides bleed, and for good reason. this one basically served as a precursor for the sound that they would truly flesh out on their next album. final groove is really simple by meshuggah standards but is super catchy. bonus points for having the best music video of all time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4A_tSyJBsRQ
14meshuggah
koloss


break those bones whose sinews gave it motion (0:27) - ridiculously heavy and relatively drawn-out groove played over a simple guitar lead, definitely one of the best on koloss
13meshuggah
destroy erase improve


inside whats within behind (intro) - straight 8th notes geniusly combined with a simple beat from haake makes for one of the most straighfoward yet simultaneously interesting grooves on DEI
12meshuggah
none


sickening (0:30) - nice throwback here. super heavy mid-paced groove that forms the basis of the whole song
11meshuggah
obzen


obzen (intro) - one of their most "percussive" grooves, the first part of this section is completely devoid of anything other than one note following the bass drum. also the polyrhythm is really cool once you figure it out
10meshuggah
nothing


closed eye visuals (0:30) - even within their discography there's nothing quite like this album, one of the heaviest and grooviest of all time. this song is no exception, the verse riff and the slight variations that follow are nothing short of genius
9meshuggah
destroy erase improve


future breed machine (0:28 / 3:40) - NYIT NYIT NYIT NYIT NYIT NYIT NYIT NYIT scientific evidence that they are not human
8meshuggah
chaosphere


corridor of chameleons (2:43) - this one is relatively straightforward rhythmically but still hits hard as fuck, the dissonant chords in between the low notes add a nice contrast.
7meshuggah
koloss


do not look down (2:58) - one of their more melodic and "catchy" sections, as well as one of their more accessible songs. pretty interesting how they switch up the higher notes as the groove moves along. might as well include the DO NOT...LOOK...DOWN section after it too.
6meshuggah
catch thirtythree


in death is life (intro) : classic meshuggah groove consisting of only like 3 notes but still being absolutely fucking genius. one of their more straightforward sections. fairly similar to rational gaze. the placement of mind's mirrors right before it makes it hit extra fucking hard when it drops. the swarm of bees continues in the background
5meshuggah
nothing


straws pulled at random (0:28) - fucking beast of a groove, haake switches the snare hits up a bit to keep things interesting, again if you dont headbang to this i dont know who the fuck you are
4meshuggah
catch thirtythree


in death is death (2:16 / 2:54) - some of the more melodic and also creative grooves meshuggah wrote. honestly any part from this monster would be acceptable but these are the 2 that stand out the most for me
3meshuggah
nothing (re-release)


rational gaze (intro) - also known as the wolf of wall street groove. another obvious but essential pick. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-y1N29vH2Y for those who havent seen it
2meshuggah
catch thirtythree


dehumanization (2:09) - one of the heaviest and grooviest fucking riffs ever put to tape. the buildup right before it makes it even more earth shattering, god damn
1meshuggah
obzen


bleed (intro + whole entire song) - an obvious but essential choice. the intro groove is iconic and if youre not headbanging within .1 second you probably dont have a soul, or are just a bitch. song keeps things interesting by masterfully switching the rhythms up subtley as the song moves forward, while sticking to the same concept without getting even remotely boring
