What's with this Bavarian on Bavarian violence, bro?
I dunno, I was just confused by the faggot talk
This is honestly one of the best Meshuggah albums for me, in terms of liking every song a lot. So many great grooves.
If I had to listen to just this and the new Spawn of Possession for all of 2012, I'd probably be ok with that... This is shaping up to be one helluva year for metal.
how can you even compare the two albums?
I definitely love the overall feel of this album. The whole thing feels more organic and less quantized. OMGZ all those djent bands will now actually record with real drums.
I don't think he did
The drums sound real to me. I can always hear Superior Drummer a million miles away. The inconsistencies in some of hits lead me to that conclusion. Would be a shame if he used programmed drums again.
sorry man I was referring to the post prior to yours
with reference to yours, - ofcourse the drums are programmed, but why on earth should that mean they aren't real?
Do you have proof of the programmed drums out of curiosity?
nah they're probably not programmed, that was just a reference to my favourite movie - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
My head hurts.
probably all those programmed drums you listen to
I would agree. WHERE IS MY DRUMAGOGO.
I don't think I did.
by compare I meant put in the same level
this "new" meshuggah album is the same rehashed, repetitive, monotonous bullshit they've been spewing out for the last 10 years
the new sop is a masterpiece in craft, musicianship, composition and brutality
he didn't, you cretin.
probably misses his old glasses
i don't think he did
It's ok, you're still young and new to music you've got a lot of years of listening to look forward to! You've got a lot of time for your ears to really grow up and mature and understand, I can start giving you music theory lessons if you want?
I love how the part of Elmo's brain that should allow him to enjoy things like this remains dead.
yeah they definitely used real drums. the timings are obviously still quantized though
Along with every other metal band on the planet.
Not Metallica! They cut straight to tape, no fuckin Pro Tools bullshit!
I'm 99.9% certain that Lars is at least partially quantised, even if he isn't being snapped directly to a grid.
Lars is the only drummer that forgets how to drum in the middle of drumming.
Didn't Trivium do an album with no quantising or digital anything as part of their attempt to live in the 1980s?
I'm talking about the pre-release hype for Death Magnetic.
Listening now, urge to kick furniture over approaching climax. I dig the production...sounds like a SYL album.
Picked this up at Best Buy today. The packaging is phenomenal ... so nice to see a band/label still care about that sort of thing.
Apparently Hagstrom wrote a bunch of music/lyrics on this one. I thought Haake always did the lyrics?
really hope mine comes in today.
pre-ordering is pretty lame if you can walk in to a store the day it comes out and get it quicker. " class=
Damn Demiurge...just...damn...that song...damn. Grooves your head right off your neck if you're not careful.
Demiurge just might be my favorite...together with Do Not Look Down.
But it's so hard to tell, they're all fucking fantastic. This is my favorite Meshuggah album.
Those are definitely the best songs on the album.
Picked up the LP earlier today. It's so heavy that it broke my shelf.
Amazon says this is at my house waiting for me.
Bad news, it likely kicked your house over by now. You shoulda done signature confirmation so you could have maintained control of it (or at least tried).
and always look each way before you cross the street
this album is so good, fuck
It feels like this relentless behemoth, trampling down everything in its way...
Did you actually wait for it to come out to listen to it?
of course I did, you know me
This is like...the perfect band-performance music video, and just represents the riffs so damn well
beautifully dark and ominous. do wish there was at least one wide shot of the full band, maybe slowed down, just rocking the fuck out
Well, it's perfect for the direction the band has taken with this album at least. If I were to nitpick, I don't like it when the video of a performance goes out of sync with the audio, but I guess not everyone likes the 'play at twice the speed and slow it down' thing.
strong Radiohead - Nude (but there's nothing wrong with that)
blasted do not look down all weekend
Probably not going to be a popular opinion (didn't read thread) but I think this album is probably their weakest release so far. I think this band is officially on a decline. Although, it's still pretty damned good, it's just becoming painfully clear they are never going to hit either the creative brilliance of Catch 33 again, nor will they recapture the perfect jarring riffs of Destroy Erase Improve. If you asked me what generic Meshuggah would sound like, this album is it. Again, it's still good, because even generic Meshuggah is a good thing. 4/5
