It amazes me how Meshuggah constantly write great albums.
...And they've done it again!
The first track starts the album off with sheer brutality. Setting the tone? You don't know the half of it! After that, the 3rd track will simply cave your skull in. You think you know what "heavy" is? You've no idea! The rest of the album is Meshuggah at their best.
Producion for this album is - in my opinion, the best yet for a Meshuggah album. This album just has everything you need.
Album of the year? It might just be...

I've always been a huge fan of Meshuggah back from the days of Destroy, Erase, Improve.... Every release sees their output moving away from traditionally structured metal songs with cool riffs towards a metalscape with bludgeoningly heavy guitars, drums and bass (and even cooler riffs). The song structure ebbs from passage to passage with syncopated rhythms that somehow meld together into a wall of immense grinding heaviness.
These guys have excelled their own exceptional standards on 'I' and 'Catch 33' by delivering the best example of what extreme metal looks like in 2008. I struggle to believe any other band can deliver output of this quality.
The first tune is catchy, and quickly gets into the phenomenal sound that is messhugah. Track 3 sees a galloping rhythm with a slurred pitch shift that begs to be replayed. Awesome.
Frederick is a little quiet on the lead front with his usual silky sounds over the pounding riffs.
Definitely my album of 2008, and it's only March.
If you're into 'metalcore' and the like, time to put away your slipknot and see what death metal at its best has to offer.
