Such is Meshuggah's standard, that an album as monolithic as Koloss doesn't even crack their top five. All of the band's enviable qualities were there for all to see on Koloss, while the hulking Demiurge and sinister Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion saw them still striving to push metal further into new realms. On Pravus and meandering Dancers To A Discordant System, the riffs of Fredrik Thordendal and Mårten Hagström were played with even more scientific precision, while vocalist Jens Kidman delivered a career best performance during the merciless ferocity of the band’s finest moment, Bleed.

Meshuggah was formed in 1987 in Umeå, Sweden. At this time the line-up was Fredrik Thordendal – guitars, Jens Kidman – vocals, Johan Sjögren - guitars, Per Sjögren - drums and Jörgen Lindmark - bass. Jens Kidman soon left the band and started the band Calipash with bassist Peter Nordin, drummer Niclas Lundgren and guitarist Torbjörn Granström During the early stages of the now reformed Meshuggah - Torbjörn Granström left the band.
In their earliest days, Meshuggah worshipped Metallica, entering the '90s with the DNA of albums like Master of Puppets and. And Justice for All writhing around their increasingly complex rhythm work. Contradictions Collapse is a bit of the black sheep in the band's catalog with its vice grip on the band's thrash heroes, but it wasn't long before they began to find their sound

Meshuggah‘s sound is complex, intricate, and jealously guards its secrets. The only thing that is really palpable upon first listening to this album is a sense of almost suffocating heaviness; a feeling that I have so far found to be entirely unique to Meshuggah. Everything just seems so mechanical, precise, and brutal, and yet you have absolutely no idea what the music is trying to accomplish. Further listens eventually unveil Meshuggah‘s true intentions. Meshuggah’s 2002 release Nothing is the biggest landmark in their career and is the album which put them on the map through the constant, unrelenting emphasis on heavy rhythm sections.
Meshuggah Albums: Contradictions Collapse, Destroy Erase Improve, Chaosphere, Nothing, Catch Thirtythree. Members: Jens Kidman, Fredrik Thordendal, Tomas Haake, Mårten Hagström, Dick Lövgren.
