Meshuggah - "Koloss" album

Sweden's best-known and most influential metal band returns with their long-awaited 7th studio album, and it's a crushing masterpiece. "I Am Colossus" is a refined assault of surgical metal guitar riffs and complex arrangements. The riffing is immaculate and technical, while lead throat Jens Kidman is positively corrosive. "The Demon's Name Is Surveillance" is speed metal redefined -- absolutely inhuman in its ferocity and speed. "Behind The Sun" is a steamroller of metal madness, while "The Hurt That Finds You First" is a juggernaut of massive math-metal-jazz with a hint of psychedelic ambience. With the impeccable "Koloss", Meshuggah redefine "heavy", shackling machine metal with massive arrangements that lay waste to 90% of modern rock. Damn, this is immense.
