MESHUGGAH’S NEW ALBUM IS CALLED COLOSSUS
When Meshuggah released a brief message last week announcing the release date of their new album, I don’t think anyone even stopped to think that the album’s title might be hidden within:
After a long time of deep soul searching and intense wrecking of the psyches, the new album is finally done. Soon you will meet this colossus that will pulverize your being. Welcome to the other side on March 27.
But then came an email from stealthy MetalSucks informant Ashley Lee linking to a page in Nuclear Blast’s German webstore showing an album by the name “Koloss” — “Colossus” in German — set for release on March 23rd (releasing an album on Friday in Europe and the following Tuesday in the U.S. is still par for the course these days despite many record labels’ willful ignorance of the existence of the Internet). Here’s the English translation of the text on the NB Germany page:
Exclusively at NUCLEAR BLAST mailorder! The limited edition “colossus” digipakincluding bonus DVD MESHUGGAH plus the magic cube! Limited to 500 bundles!
So, that begs the question… what the fuck is a magic cube??? Color us interested.
