    I love this, and that's coming from someone who hasn't been a huge fan over the years. They always have the most ridiculously heavy as fuck production and this is no exception.

    Do I sense a hint of Chaosphere? Best I've heard from Meshuggah in many years. Lost interest after Catch 33, but now might be the time to get back.

    I am blown away by this song. I have too many good things to say about it so I'm not even going to start.

    This band has kinda bored me in the past. But FUCK these songs are good. I've always got why people love them so much, I just never quite fell in love with them. But I'll be picking this record up for sure and giving it some study.

    Am I the only one who's pretty bored with these songs? Maybe I just need to hear them on good speakers and appreciate from a production standpoint.

    i think you´re not. The sound is great, the riffs are great ... for a minute. I miss some sort of "kicker", progression or some catchy C-part. Just like the new Opeth

    If you're a drummer, you'll probably want to go practice after you watch this. Haake is incredible.

    Also shout out for the guitar player wearing the slippers in the back. I'm sure he had to wear them to keep the noise down from tapping his foot the whole time.


    Does anyone have any additional production info for the album? I was under the impression that Meshuggah have used programmed drums and guitar sims on albums in the past. Maybe that's just for demo purposes and then they track the album live?

    I saw Mark Lewis post on instagram about them really capturing a 'live' feel this time around. I'd love to see a trend start to go the other way focused on musicianship, original sounds and live tracking.

    The use of ghost notes really impress me about Thomas. He looks so relaxed while playing this stuff.

    ^^nice!
    I wonder how much of the vocals were re-done. Also wonder in the mixing process how much of the drum tones stay natural, if there are samples/ kick samples blended in.

    That's pretty awesome that they recorded 5 amps and cabs separately but used them independently depending on the song or part instead of making a mushy wall of shit like some people do when they record several amps and mix them together hahaha

    I love the fact that Meshuggah can record an album with programmed drums and ampsims and then do an album completely live with everyone playing together and using real amps and more "classic" recording techniques and although the difference in sound is clearly noticeable and awesome, it's still Meshuggah by all accounts, which comes to prove it's the musicians that make their sound, which is good news for people working hard and practicing their skills and songwriting trying to find their own "sound", bad news for people who buy (or crack) ezdrummer and ampsims saying "meshuggah do it so they sound good and I can sound like them".

    Can't wait to experience these new songs live next month, I've seen them twice at festivals but a Meshuggah headline indoors show is something I need in my life.

    Amazing! I see using many different rigs in the same song seems to be freaking hard to mix in order to shape something coherent and "invisible" and not sound A, sound B, which would be very distractive and unmusical to me (at least for most Metal genres). I'd be a bit afraid to do that tbh, I'm gotta try it tho. Do you guys have already used this technique?

    Gave the album a few listens now. obZen is still my favourite but I also like this one. But besides that: holy crap, I saw them last monday for the first time live. What an amazing show!
