I think you did a good job man. I think it would be difficult to review a new Meshuggah album.

Monotone vocals, check
Ridiculously complex polyrhythmic drumming, check
Downtuned open note chugfest, check

Yeah I mean to each their own, it just read as quite repetitive to me. In reviews I tend to rate economic use of language quite highly.

I totally agree with the review. The songs (especially the opener) are really good on an individual basis, but altogether it's just not a album that has enough going on to make it last. The review is fine, IMO. If you had made the points you made without totally backing them up, people would have ripped you for that. Damned if you do...

I just can't wait for the lyrics to come out for this thing. The lines I can make out are unsurprisingly awesome. Haake's lyrics slay.

If they play Clockworks live, everyone is going to die.

"By The Ton" is such a fitting name for that song

"If they play Clockworks live, everyone is going to die."



Idk I'd rather die to Bleed or Soul Burn or Closed Eye Visuals or something...

Bleed is probably their most insane song...but Clockworks>Closed Eye Visuals in terms of intensity.
