    oh, agreed 100%. I don't mind the downtuning, but the vocals irritate the hell out of me. It's a pity, because I really enjoy Haake's rhythmic mindfucks, but I have to switch off after a few songs because the vocals are too annoying to be endured.

    Very true. Their singer is a complete failure as well as their guitar work..

    your argument is invalid. there are many great riffs built upon very few notes or power chords. I can agree some meshuggah riffs are rather boring, even though most of them are synched with the drums in a way making them good anyway. bleed is an extremely simple song note wise, maybe thats even the song u showed a tab for, still it kicks ass.

    ^I didnt give any specific argument, only an example. Did I say that it sucks because it has a very few notes?

    I was kinda emphasizing downtuning but nevermind. Its OK for me if people go die for Meshuggah, what do I care..

    Meshuggah is badass actually. The vocals, while nothing special, fit perfectly with the machine-like precision of the band. I don't really know what a more EXTREME vocal style would be, but yelling endlessy over fucked up riffs is probably pretty challenging and a hell of a lot better than the inward yelling and "growling" that most metalcore bands use. just my view, w/e...yes I'm a bit of a Meshuggah fanboy.

    My post had nine strings and many more in between so I guess that's obvious. Also I think Meshuggah sucks about their guitar work, and it is a combination their usage of few notes, downtuning, only rythming etc

    I just cant understand how did you derive that "few notes = bullshit" from my original post.

    ^Thats a different story.. I gotta admit that he is quite cool, but you know all the noise throughout the songs dont make it worthy in my eyes to listen to them. Only Fredrick's lead and Haake's drumming (which is also tiring to listen to after some time) is not what I am thinking of an ideal band.

    I am quite fed up with brutal vocals too, listening to Bob Dylan and some Kurdish music (no wonder I dont like Meshuggah :))

    I'd prefer Meshuggah's vocals over Dylans, probably...

    Metallica was playing at the last bar I went to. Everybody seemed to enjoy it. Some girls were dancing. Wack-fol-ma-daddy-oh!

    The best discussions in this forum appear in irrelevant threads.

    This:
    is bullshit. listen to all their stuff and then think about it and judge again... you have to get "into" them. :lol:
    On older albums Kidman´s voice has a slight Hetfield touch ... for those who dig metalica and are looking for something crazier (musically)
    Furthermore listening to/reading/studying the lyrics is recommended.

    If ´shuggah in public then Choirs of Devastation...
