Meshuggah - New Album Title Revealed


After announcing the release date of their new album, Swedish technical metallers Meshuggah and Nuclear Blast have made the following announcement via Facebook: "Meshuggah have chosen Koloss as the title to their eighth studio album, set for North American release on March 27th and European release on March 23rd via Nuclear Blast Records."

"Drummer Tomas Haake has issued the following warning: 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!"



UPDATE: The tracklist and cover art for Koloss have now also been unveiled. Check it out below.

01. I Am Colossus
02. The Demon's Name Is Surveillance
03. Do Not Look Down
04. Behind The Sun
05. The Hurt That Finds You First
06. Marrow
07. Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion
08. Swarm
09. Demiurge
10. The Last Vigil

" best avoided by the faint of heart "... Stupid cliche. Metal bands need to describe their albums better in promotions.

Maybe they really liked the post-metal Koloss album that was released last year.

I do hope this is more theme/style based than the jack-of-all trades that was Obzen.

One way or another, as long as it's good, I'm game.

Indeed, another concept album like Catch 33 would be quite interesting. But then again, it's Meshuggah, and they do something a little different with each release... so let's just wait and see what's inside the wrapped present, so to speak.

Awful as in awful or awful as in awesome.

I think it's awful as in awful.

Time to get stoked. To be honest, Obzen was not as good as I wanted it to be. With that said, the first track was worth the whole album. So, I know they can do it. Please deliver the goods Meshuggah!

Oh, yeah, they've got some great song titles on there. I'd like to cite "The Demon's Name is Surveillance" as an example of that. I don't quite know what "Koloss" means (aside from the previous posts), but one of my first thoughts was of the word "Colossus". Also, the album artwork slays!

Like when you're describing a new Gnaw Their Tongues release or something.

Calling it disgusting, vile, repulsive, awful, etc.

The only artworks I like are from Nothing and Catch 33. The rest (and this one) are fucking awful.

Lulz, fair point but I doubt anyone has used "awful" in that context :p
