Don't expect to buy this and go "Fuck yeah," because it's not gonna happen. Track 1 is the noisiest and hardest to appreciate and that tends to sour peoples opinion of the band and/or album right off the bat. These songs takes months to absorb. But when you can feel these grooves, you'll never turn away. It's an infection. An addiction. A highly aquired taste. Comparable to nothing. Chaosphere has affected my life more than any music teacher ever could. It has inspired me more than anything else I've ever encountered in my life. This is the best album in the history of metal, and will never be topped, even by the band itself. All right everyone, start your shit talking. I've already practiced swinging my new louisville and loaded my beretta.

I agree. When I bought the album back in 99' it was overwhelming to listen too. Unlike anything I had ever heard it was just so confusing and challenged my ear so much. I do think its possible for them to top chaosphere, they've had over 3 years to write new stuff. We'll see in august!

YOU PEOPLE ARE FUCKING IDIOTS. THIS ALBUM IS BBBBBBBEAUTIFUL.
heavy as hell, loud as fuck.

I have to say, sad but true, the album is great overall, tunes lika New Millenium Cyanide Christ really blows you up, but the sound? Nah, I do NOT like it! The sound you had on DEI, WOW! - Mange

Best metal album ever

:Feb 19,2003 6:35am - post by anonymous

:Mar 7,2003 8:38pm - post by anonymous
And the award for the crappiest piece of shit ever recorded goes to...Meshuggah. (Applause) Unfortunately they couldn't be here with us tonight, they're in the studio taking a dump yet again.

THIS IS THE HEAVIEST ALBUM EVER MADE IN MY OPINION......AFTER 2,357 LISTENS, I KNOW EACH SONG BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS.......IT'S BRILLIANT GENIUS POLYRYTHMIC THRASH METAL AT IT'S FINEST.......THE OPENING SONG "CONCATENATION" TAKES YOU ON A MIND TWISTING RIDE THROUGH ANOTHER DIMENSION........."NEW MILLENIUM CYANIDE CHRIST" IS MY FAVORITE SONG OF ALL TIME......."THE MOUTH LICKING WHAT YOU'VE BLED" PROVES THAT TOMAS HAAKE (MESHUGGAH'S DRUMMER) IS ONE OF THE BEST DRUMMERS ON EARTH AND IS A NON-HUMAN CYBORG FROM ANOTHER PLANET........JUST LISTEN TO THAT SONG AND YOU'LL SEE WHAT I MEAN.........SANE IS ANOTHER CLASSIC MESHUGGAH SONG........THE OUTRO IS INSANE.......ELASTIC IS A GREAT CLOSER FOR THE CD AND HAS A WACKY RIFF.......MESHUGGAH RULZ PEOPLE, IF YOU DON'T LIKE THEM IT'S PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU DON'T TAKE THE TIME TO UNDERSTAND AND GET USED TO THEIR MUSICAL STYLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



:Mar 28,2003 12:34pm - post by anonymous
I agree with the last review. This cd rules. New Millenium Cyanide Christ is a sweet ass song, Although, I think there CD "nothing" is better. Glints collide rules!!



:Apr 7,2003 12:48am - post by anonymous
I JUST GOT THIS CD. AND NOW I HAVE A SERIOUS CHACE OF WHIP LASH
THE EXQUISIT MACHIENS OF TORCHER IS WICKED I LOVED IT FROM FIRST LISTEN



:Apr 7,2003 8:59pm - post by anonymous
Now that you have "NOTHING" and "CHAOSPHER".........I suggest getting "DESTROY ERASE IMPROVE" which is easily Meshuggah's best overall cd and is a classic heavy metal album.........MESHUGGAH FUCKING RULZ!!!!!!!!!!



:Apr 9,2003 11:21pm - post by anonymous
I just got this cd and all I have to say is holy shit!!! This is some seriously brutal/mind blowing shit!!! The drumming in track 5 is insane!!! That drummer is one of the best I've ever heard!!! A+



:Apr 18,2003 9:17pm - post by anonymous
I don't care what anyone else thinks! This is the heaviest and most brutal album ever! A total masterpiece full of chaos! Sorry, no death metal can compete with this shit.......



:May 13,2003 7:59pm - post by anonymous
Ok, this has to rate as one of the top 5 most brutal metal albums of all time! THE MOUTH LICKING WHAT YOU'VE BLED is such a killer song! It doesn't get that much attention or get talked about a lot but that song is pure brutal percision! Tomas Haake is god on drums! Elastic is another unique song to say the least! I feel like I'm on a ship from hell out in the ocean about to get sea sick from the waves when I listen to the second opening riff kick in! Meshuggah is in a class of their own, and if you don't agree it's your lose not mine _-_-_-_-_- :-)



:May 28,2003 12:21pm - post by anonymous
Ok, these guys slaughtered every band at the New England Metal & Hardcore Fest 2003........no question......it was a pure slaughtering.......Chaosphere has to be their heaviest album, and one of the top 5 best and heaviest metal albums ever......New Millenium Cyanide Christ fucking rulz!!!!!!!!!



:Jun 7,2003 12:25am - post by anonymous
Meshuggah are the technical metal kings.....and my favorite band......these guys don't need to be followers of satan and scream about gore and killing...........they're heavier than those blast beat death metal bands anyway........"THE MOUTH LICKING WHAT YOU'VE BLED" "NEW MILLENIUM CYANIDE CHRIST"........nothing is as heavy, technical, and insane as those songs........if you know of one please tell me>>>



:Jun 27,2003 4:10pm - post by anonymous
Fucking amazing.A liberation of thought and power.Beyond words.Beyond contemplation.Beyond understanding.



:Sep 4,2003 2:37am - post by Meshuggah101 at hotmail.com#
An acquired taste. If you dont like it, ha, well, sucks for your dumbass. Go put in your LincolnPark and sing along to your whiny MY LIFE SUCKS music while us real fans of music are enlightenining by the rhthmic epiphany that IS meshuggah. The chameleons will finish the job.



:Sep 24,2003 7:58pm - post by anonymous
id really like to see drummers from bothe meshugah and slipknot do some intertwined drumming, each are more than capable of defeating the other one in an all out bash fest it would be.................................interesting.



:Sep 24,2003 8:13pm - post by babysbreath
see above for the most retarded comment ever.



:Oct 24,2003 10:07pm - post by anonymous
I will headbang to New Millenium Cyanide Christ until I die!!!!! The Mouth Licking What You've Bled is heavier than heavy!!!!! The riff in Elastic is insane!!!!! Meshuggah rules!!!!!!!

FEAR FACTORY ON STEROIDS.

Amn, this album is awesome. Its like a fucking nailbomb blowing up in your head. The tracks will envelope you, like splinters of metal from the said nailbomb. It took me a while to get used to this cd, because of its lack of convention, but when i " got it " i was amazed. this is classic metal. Just check the end of elastic, when the noise assault starts, and then goes on for 5 minutes of lightning fast electrical noise. The ultimate liquorice album. You will either love it or hate it. Now love it!



:Oct 28,2003 10:58pm - post by anonymous
THE MOUTH LICKING WHAT YOU'VE BLED. Enough said.....................................................



:Nov 25,2003 8:44pm - post by anonymous
"Nothing" is a great album don't get me wrong, but Chaosphere is in a league of it's own. This cd fuckin pounds your head like no other. It's shear insane brutality. THE MOUTH LICKING WHAT YOU'VE BLED is one of those songs you never get sick of. It's sooooo heavy and brilliant. One of the best metal bands of the decade. And gets the most shit talk from idiots who can't comprehend their music......



:Dec 10,2003 2:44pm - post by anonymous
If you understand Meshuggah, then well done. You will then be listening to some of the highest quality metal around. Concatenation rules, so does Future breed machine. MESHUGGAH FOREVER!



:Dec 10,2003 10:19pm - post by anonymous
BANDS ALWAYS TRY TO COPY BUT NOTHING WILL EVER BEAT THIS CD!!! MESHUGGAH RULES.



:Dec 14,2003 11:07pm - post by thisfilter at hotmail.com#
The first time i heard meshuggah, was the first time i heard chaosphere. It was noisy and confusing, and i always like to be on top of what i listen to, but i found this hard to follow and i didnt know why, i was used to odd timings, but this was madness!!! I dismissed as noise and said they sucked, just as i always do with every band i end up worshipping... Once i understood that there was method to the madness, i started understanding it. I learned the entire cd on drums and guitar. AND IT STILL MOVES ME EVERY TIME I HEAR IT!!! Word of advice to all newcomers, most of it is actually a very headbangable 4/4, use that to your advantage when trying to understand what the hell is going on, and let it grow on you, but once you understand it, don't blame me for being obsessed... I just wish that there were more poly rhythmic bands out there, cuz i am addicted!!!



:Dec 18,2003 11:40am - post by anonymous
THE MOUTH LICKING WHAT YOU'VE BLED........What a great forgotten song. A short swift kick to the groin. I'll never forget hearing Concatenation for the first time. I didn't see that one coming. Then New Millenium Cyanide Christ got me hooked on one of the best metal bands ever........MESHUGGAH!!!



:Dec 28,2003 11:58pm - post by anonymous (swamplorddvm)

Ok, Ok. I'm sure you meshuggah fans hate me now. Oh well. But i think i got all of my shit out about this "band". but as long as people keep saying these guys are the greatest metal band ever ill have to say NIET!!! to that. Just like you guys will say the same to my opinions. GOOD DAY!!!



:Jan 19,2004 2:55pm - post by anonymous
Do you feel like going on a killing rampage? Just pop in this Meshuggah cd and listen to track #5 "The Mouth Licking What You've Bled" about 10 times in a row. It will get you in the right frame of mind to do so....



:Jan 19,2004 5:04pm - post by JellyFish
Well no shit! If I had to listen to this 10 times in a row, Id kill myself, along with many others.



:Apr 28,2004 11:56pm - post by anonymous (Peter D. from RK)
Great song writing. Great understanding of polyrhythms. I love the guitar solo sound (almost hornlike). The singer's rhythms work really well with those of the rest of the band. I always wanted to do a cover of "New Millenium ..."



:May 1,2004 8:04pm - post by anonymous
This band is in a league of their own. This CD is so insane and twisted. Meshuggah have set the boundries for the extreme metal bands of the 21st century. Can't wait for their next masterpiece. All those who talk shit about this band are just mad that they can't grasp their greatness. MESHUGGAH!!!!



:Oct 16,2004 2:15am - post by anonymous
Man, I don't get how people can call Meshuggah shitty...
This cd Fuckin rules! It is easily my one of my favorite death metal cds (right next to Nile's Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-ka). I don't own DEI... yet. But as far as I am concerned, this is the best Meshuggah album!

Oh ya, New Mellinum Cyanide Christ is FUCKING awesome



:Oct 17,2004 9:33pm - post by hatehead
Hand down my all time favorite band for a lot of dirrerent reasons. First off these guys are so fucking original, and totally took on a new aspect of "aggressive" music. The first time I listened to Chaosphere I was in tenth grade. I hated it. I was so used to verse chorus, type structure that when I heard Meshuggah, i was like man these guys suck. But about three or four months later I was cleaning my room and popped it back in. It was like me new favorite cd. These guys definitly take a little bit to get into, but once you absorb everything this band has to offer, you will find some seriously killer musicianship between these lovely swedes. Chaospher as a whole is one of my favorite records. New Millenium Cyanide Christ, is hands down one of the ballziest songs on the disc. Sane kills me everytime. I dont' know this is one of those cds that I just throw on and fucking crank all the time, it never gets old. And for some reason I always seem to find something new about the disc everytime I listen to it, even though I have burnt a whole in the thing for listening to it so much. But yeah the best band around if you ask me, Meshuggah is the fucking shit. Period. lata

Chaosphere... is the absolute epitome of metal. Finally a new benchmark in a tired genre (even though its nearly 8 years old). And I used to think that nothing could ever top Pantera's "Far Beyond Driven". How foolish of me. This album is rediculous from start to fucking finish. Mechanically organic, intricately simple, complete controled chaos. A fucking lesson in brutality, musicianship, endurance and creativity that overshadows every other metal bands efforts...EVER. Any retard who thinks that he or she is a metal-head and/or musician and cant at least appreciate this band/album is a fucking joke.
You guys all rule by the way. Its nice to see and be able to talk to so many Meshuggah fans. Its so laughable when people shit talk this band. I can just see the mongloid look on they're faces, and in they're eyes.
