Pretty fucking boring song tbh. Dunno.... it just... i listen to it like 30 minutes ago ( after i already listened this morning ) and i already cant remember it. Nothing catchy, no real cool groove ...its "just there".

No groove? Really? I can't sit still while listening to it because it has such immense amounts of groove imo

Pretty much my EXACT thoughts on every Meshuggah release. I've tried really hard, but eventually this band just bores the shit out of me. Full respect for being amazing musicians and innovators, but I just can't quite get into it.

And I don't mind the snare all that much....

Isn't groove subjective though?

I love the licks in between the drone chuggas, these are groovy, but the repetitive riff is so repetitive it kills the groove to me.

I somewhat like the drums, though I agree the snare is too much cardboard sounding

To me it's as or more interesting than anything on Nothing or Catch33. Meshuggah is a band who's 90's catalog was so life altering for me that I stick with them and I felt like Obzen was positive step. I do wish they would go to a producer again though to make the most of the songs they're writing now. These slower repetitive songs are done a real disservice by flat productions which is immediately apparent to anyone who sees the band live.

I..I..must hold back..

I'll have to wait and see how the rest of the album pans out for a better judgment.

The ridiculous low mids are making it sound like my headphones are glowing everytime they chug a note, lol.

Drums sound like Toontrack Metal Heads :-) I find the song really empty and flat.

as a fucking HUGE mesh fan, I've grown to LOVE this... Jens is killing it and the drums are definitely a breath of fresh air. I think the SNR is fucking AWESOME... sounds super raw and agressive, same with the toms, just as it should be!

I'm growing SO FUCKING TIRED of the typical metal production these days....

Song is a bit long, droney and can get boring I agree, but the more I listen to it the more I fucking dig it. Still STOKED AS FUCK for this release...!

+1 man. The main thing that popped out immediately, to me, was that the drums sound better than the last 400 releases they have put out. Hard to fuck drums up with Jens behind the wheel though Not to say everything else sucks, the guitars sound better than they have in a looong time as well, IMO.

My sentiments EXACTLY. For the life of me I can't understand how people could rag on the drum sound. We're actually getting to HEAR HAAKE this time....no programmed bullshit (at least so it sounds).

Fucking MENTAL.

and just to clarify, who is behind the recording/mixing/mastering of this album? I thought Bergstrand was involved somehow but I could be mistaken. Can't find much info....!
