I think its become a large part of the sound though. The entire atmosphere for Meshuggah is built on a shapeshifting, contorted, walls-moving-in sense of rhythm. I don't listen to their songs and say to myself "oh dear, these are such strange time signatures. look how progressive and open-minded I am", as much as I enjoy the aesthetic created by the dominant low-end, the shifting rhythms, and the spacey textures. The 4/4 quarters are pretty much essential for creating this, so I've learned to accept them as part of the music.

The 4/4 cymbal work gets really annoying in bands that are inspired by Meshuggah, but fail to capture any sense of atmosphere.

The drum sound on "Come Clarity" and "Stabbing the Drama" was pretty fat. If it's anything like typical Bergstrand's, all the individual instruments will probably sound weak on their own but they'll fit together in the mix. I think "Demigod" sounds fantastic, especially the vocals. The drums on "The Apostasy" sound incredible, and I believe he mixed that album too, right? He'll also be mixing the new Decapitated.

As much as I wasn't a huge fan of Demigod, the vocals WERE mixed very well.

When is new Decapitated due? Is there a title/tracklist/art/an official statement/etc?

True, though a major part of that is Inferno's sweet custom Spaun kit. You can already hear the quality on the studio vids, without any production on them.

Demigod does sound great (find the layered vox a bit OTT though) - except for the drums.

that's quite an original post you got there. Maybe you should like, not post, & get back to your cheese sticks & junty whatever-core.

If you have any musical equipment please donate it to charity so another jumpdafukup-core band doesn't form spontaneously.

That was the second or third Meshuggah song I heard. Chaosphere is so goddamn heavy and violent.

http://www.guitarworld.com/interview...ader-questions

Guitar World magazine recently conducted an interview with guitarist Fredrik Thordendal of Swedish experimental extreme metallers MESHUGGAH as part of the regular "Dear Guitar Hero" feature (using fan-submitted questions).

When asked about whether MESHUGGAH has been working on new music and if he has any new gear he is using, Fredrik said, "Yes, we are working on a new album and have been for a long time. I'm so excited about this one. We've always tried to change how we write songs to keep it exciting, but on recent albums we've also been moving further away from working together as a band. On this album, though, everyone is working together. Every day that we're in the studio, we'll play whatever song we're working on, record a demo version of it to analyze at home, and then come back the next day, talk about it and try to make it better. I think because of this, it's going to be our best album yet.

"We don't have a title yet, but when it comes to new gear, this one is going to be special, to say the least. I'm working with DAR Amplification to make this ridiculously powerful guitar amp. It's got 100 watts of true Class A power. The tubes are from Russian MiG 25 fighter planes; they're designed to survive a nuclear blast and keep the plane flying. It will be the world's most advanced modern tube amp. But most importantly, it's designed from beginning to end for the ultimate metal tone, and it sounds awesome. Can't wait for you to experience it!"

MESHUGGAH drummer Tomas Haake married bassist Ida Evileye (real name: Ida Stenbacka) of the Swedish all-girl hard rock band CRUCIFIED BARBARA in January in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In an interview with Decibel magazine, Haake spoke about the progress of the songwriting sessions for MESHUGGAH's follow-up 2008's "obZen".

Regarding the approach to the new music, the drummer said, "Maybe not try to be as anal about every single little hit [that] has to be super-tight but be more focused on the vibe of a track and let some of those tiny errors slip through. I think that kinda breeds a bit of life into a song."

Released in March 2008, "obZen" album debuted at No. 59 on The Billboard 200 chart and at No. 14 on the iTunes Top Rock Albums chart.

"obZen" was nominated in the "Best Hard Rock" category at the Swedish Grammis awards, which was held January 7, 2009 at Hovet in Stockholm.

MESHUGGAH's first DVD, "Alive" sold around 3,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 8 on the Top Music Videos chart.

Fan-filmed video footage of MESHUGGAH's performance at this year's Metaltown festival, which was held June 17-18, 2011 in Gothenburg, Sweden, can be seen below.

Sounds awesome. I can't wait.
Interesting to hear that they started writing together again as a band.
It hasn't been this way since Nothing, has it?

Also, that whole paragraph about his new amp literally made me lol.

I honestly doubt that they will ever record a bad album.

nowhere did he say that they'll sound good because they're from a MiG. he just said that they'd survive a nuclear blast because of that.

nice "reading comprehension" there

it's only "obvious" if you want it to be there and you obviously do. he's only explicitly saying that it's awesome because it was designed from the beginning to be like that, not because it has MiG tubes in it.

it's time you learned to read and interpret things. seriously

How is this information relevant at all? It's very likely just mentioned to give the impression "OMG dem MIG tubes, so kewl".
Anyway, you don't have to put everything on the gold-scales....

well, i'm pretty sure that the lifespan and sound of a tube is largely dependent on it's temperature. obviously a tube that can withstand a nuclear blast can handle quite a bit of heat. im definitely no expert, but im assuming this means that the MIG tubes will significantly affect the tone and overall power that the amp will be able to produce.

seems like a pretty relevant bit of information to me.

i just now read this and lol'd.

Still can't wait for this to come out. The paragraph about the tubes did sound funny, but i doubt he was trying to sound douchey. Quit overanalyzing shit and just enjoy the tunes.
