Scion AV…coming through with a new Meshuggah track “I Am Colossus“. So while you eat your burger or sandwich, enjoy this meaty goodness too. Click here to get to the new song.
‘I Am Colossus’ is way more straightforward than the thrash metal we grew up with. At the same time, it does pose its own difficulties for us as players. It will probably be one of the first songs we attempt to play on tour. The solo – which is basically two long notes that are slow bends – just turned out beautiful. Such an understatement as a guitar solo. Sometimes a slow song is just as aggressive as a fast one.” -Tomas Haake (Meshuggah Drummer)
Meshuggah’s new album, Koloss, drop March 27th via Nuclear Blast.

My bad. The album name is actually KOLOSS. Tomas Haake says:
“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!!”

This is fucking hilarious! If you haven’t heard his other stuff…I suggest visiting his YouTube channel and watching/listening to his other edits of songs. He completely tears the balls out of a Cannibal Corpse, Behemoth, Meshuggah, Gorgoroth as well as creating an interesting funk styled Lamb of God song.
