Koloss is probably not the best starting point (though it seems to have worked for Ravenheart, despite his resistance to this type of music, but lest I digress...). You need to check out Nothing. DEI and Chaosphere are good as well, but if Nothing or obZen don't do it for you, then it's not likely the others will. Catch 33 isn't bad, but it's not most Meshfans' favorite.
Bottom line, just stick with it. Meshuggah are amazing.
