Meshuggah Koloss

As many reviews at Amazon note ( and I have to agree with all of them ), at this time Meshuggah has returned to their 90s tech-thrash roots, when they've released two ultra heavy post-apocalyptic poli-rhythms based efforts: Destroy Erase Improve and Chaosphere, perhaps two of the finest metal albums ever released. I simply love every album of them released in 2000s, specially Obzen, which already hinted the direction they would follow, but Koloss is my favorite Meshuggah since Chaosphere...

Total brutal, insane and quite extreme metal. A MetallicA with brains put on acid. Some of the most awesome metal riffs ever written. At the same time, Meshuggah is able to reach a contemplative state, something almost like a mantra, something that grabs your mind and soul and takes you somewhere inside your self.

And it is pure metal. That is perhaps my favorite part...
