Kevin, I agree with your music tastes.. but this is false.... Catch 33 a little maybe. Obzen is the real deal. Hope you have heard it!!
I know their early stuff wasn't over processed, but didn't they have an album where the drummer admitted to not even playing, he just programmed a drum machine for the recording of the album? Just based on random songs I've heard the past few albums it sounded like processed super slick pro tools type stuff. Was Catch 33 the one where the whole thing sounds the same?
I always figured they wouldn't be able to reproduce that sound live but I've never seen them.
Yes, it was Catch 33. that was like an experimental album.... They wanted to do the one super-long progressive song thing. It is cool Meshuggah like to do what they do.. they will try different things or whatever. They are all super smart dudes.
You know it was because of them that the 8-string guitar was invented.... for the most part it was them inventing it.... before they wrote/recorded their Nothing album (2002)..... they were thinking of just having/playing all bass guitars, distorted... so they created the 8-string.... which is kind of damn close to a bass... Just listen to the intro (on the first album using 8-string, Nothing) on the first track 'Stengah'.... music to my ears and makes me want to move around violently. It's beautiful. Anyways....
As technical and complex as their time signatures and rhythms are, they are PERFECT live. and their drummer (who despite only programming during the one experimental album) ... is still in my opinion one of the best drummers in the world without a doubt.
