CHAOSPHERE. Fucking perfect album. Its in my top 5 of all time. ObZen is also amazing. Start off with those two, both of them are pretty prevalent and played live. Nothing is a great album, but a little deep and very progressive. Destroy Erase Improve is also good, but of a different style than their later stuff.

To start, I recommend starting with Chaosphere and ObZen.

As for the set, fucking great! I could go without seeing Stengah or Electric Red and replacing it with New Millennium Cyanide Christ or Corridor of Chameleons or something. Can't wait for the new album and eventual new tour

Even though it is just an EP I still think their None EP is w/o a doubt the greatest thing that they have ever done. But that is just my

yeah, i was using "never" very loosely, or they haven't been playing anything off them recently.


I saw them for the obzen tour but I unfortunately couldn't have a great experience due to some personal stuff going on. Back then they were one of my favorite bands, but now I can barely listen to them. I still would see them again just one more time. (..and more if I enjoy the show)

That's one badass set. I sure wish this one would come to the states.

Chaosphere is their best album to me. It's much more mature and dense then their earlier work, and is their most aggressive overall. That material kicks ass live, much more than the newer stuff (other than "I", which would sound great live too). The newer albums are great, but like someone said, theyre hypnotic...alot of those are very repetitive and dont work as well at a show as the Chaosphere stuff does. I wish they would play more of it, its so good! Great band, hope they come back to the US soon and do some reasonably priced shows...i refused to pay $60+ for those bullshit Ministry shows.

Dude. Picture this: a night with Meshuggah. Chaosphere played in its entirety.



I would pay an unhealthy amount of money to see that.

They are slightly different. Besides - Tomas plays Sabian cymbals exclusively.

Even though my favorite album of theirs is "Nothing", I usually suggest to a Meshuggah newcomer to start with "Destroy Erase Improve" and work his / her way forward chronologically from there, skipping "Catch 33". If they like what they've heard, I then suggest "Catch 33", "I" and "Contradictions Collapse / None".

I love all the love for Meshuggah here. It really is a tough question about what album to go for first. "Nothing" is my favorite album, but I think to start off I would go with Destroy Erase Improve. You wont get blow away by Chaospheres intensity, but you will see real quick why Meshuggah is the heaviest band on the planet.
