5/5

Koloss

Meshuggah

Genre: Metal

Koloss is the seventh album by Swedish metal band Meshuggah. It was released on March 23, 2012 in Germany, on March 26 in the rest of Europe, and March 27 in North America via Nuclear Blast. Tomas Haake, the drummer, stated, "As always, we try to take our music in a slightly different direction with each album and with Koloss, we feel that we really nailed what we were going for. Organic brutality, viscera and groove all crammed into a 54-minute metalicious treat, best avoided by the faint of heart!!" Read more on Last.fm.

    Maybe the best metal outing in the last two years. The music herein has the key components that made and continue to make Meshuggah the most important band at their level.

    ‘Koloss’ is absolutely immersing. In some sort of cosmic ‘gotcha’, Meshuggah reminds us here that it was never, really, the speed or the technicality that makes their music so incredible—it’s that no one else can do what they can: perform multiple ideas simultaneously and cohesively.

    It’s unreal.
