Meshuggah - New Song Online


"I Am Colossus", a brand-new track from Swedish technical thrash metallers Meshuggah can now be streamed and downloaded on Scion A/V.

A limited edition 7" will be available in black, clear, yellow, and white vinyl, and given away for free on Meshuggah's upcoming tour, The Ophidian Trek, courtesy of Scion A/V.

About the song, drummer Tomas Haake comments: ""I Am Colossus" is way more straightforward than the thrash metal we grew up with. At the same time, it does pose its own difficulties for us as players. It will probably be one of the first songs we attempt to play on tour. The solo - which is basically two long notes that are slow bends - just turned out beautiful. Such an understatement as a guitar solo. Sometimes a slow song is just as aggressive as a fast one."

Two other new songs, entitled "Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion" and "Do Not Look Down", can be streamed here and here.



"I Am Colossus", "Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion" and "Do Not Look Down" comes off the band's fortcoming album Koloss, due out on March 23rd (Europe) and March 26th (North America) through Nuclear Blast Records. More album details were previously reported here.

Haha, that's like saying "compose your own Metal album and upload it here, instead of writing a review of an album". :lol:

They put out the newest Immolation EP too. Not to say the two sound alike.

I thought the solo from Entrapment was pushing it by using two different notes, but they were at least used several times.

It's on youtube, from the few songs I listened to it sounds more cohesive than obZen, but I still don't understand the story behind the cover or the album in general

These guys have the power to write apparently average songs and still get me to enjoy them a lot. It's weird.

Is this a concept album or something? I don't think so, it doesn't neccessarily have to tell a story.

I don't know what Koloss means, my guess is it relates to the first track

I read somewhere it's simply artwork the band found on facebook or some internet site, liked it, so they contacted the guy who made it, and had him make the cover for them.... No idea how legit any of that is tho...

Story behind ''Koloss'' art work is a metaphor of demon guardian ho is basically guarding a passage to a organic hell! '(a transitions from logical life to mystical entrapment!)...

There are even rumors about story from the track ''Bleed'', continues on album ''Koloss''!!!...;)
