Not gonna get too deep and crazy with this review because the music just speaks for itself. If you are a person who is looking for music with a crazy-hard edge to it, then youve found your band and your album OBZEN. This is the hardest music I've ever heard in my life, but it's the hard aspect of the music that makes it so great. Tracks like COMBUSTION and BLEED offer up some wild and extreamly odd time signatures with the use of Guitar. I've never really heard such hard music played with so much finesse and technicality. Wow. I'm pretty blown away. I actually laugh by just how crazy this music is, but I laugh cause it really is incredible by how fast and technical the music is. I have a new found respect for the tech/extreme prog metal genre and because of Meshuggah I will venture further into the genre. I thank Meshaggah for opening my eyes to see the creative, ahnillative and destructive force they are. Dam!!! Be prepared to be blown away by great musicianship and hard-assed guitar riffing that is sure to please any sane metal head. Enjoy. ObZen is a masterpiece and it warrants a 5star rating.
