Band: Meshuggah

Home Page:

Meshuggah are hard to describe; my words will never do justice to their sound. Their early works remind me somewhat of earlier Neurosis, but more technical, with odd-beats and polyrhythms galore. "Destroy, Erase, Improve" is generally considered their best, and shows them becoming more technical and losing all of the elements that reminded me of Neurosis. Their latest effort, "Nothing", shows them slowing down their approach, yet still maitaining the interests rhythmic sound of their earlier works. It also uses 8-string guitars for an extremely heavy, bleak sound. The vocals are somewhere between hardcore and death metal style, with a sort of gutteral yelling sound to them. Quite a unique band, and very recommended to technical metal fans.
