This is the best part of Nilamedia's Meshuggah set in my opinion. Beautiful solo from Haake, Dick on the bass.

Haake's hands play in 4/4 time; his feet follow some quantum relativity law

Not to be offensive to the fans but I can't get into this band.....people talk about groove etc but I feel no groove at all in this. all their songs seem flat and one dimensional...I know poly rhythms indepence to you guys=dimensions lol..  The bass sounds terrible...Yep I'm completely missing what you guys see in this band......I think Pantera have more groove than these guys.......... even simple stuff like broken to me has more power and groove but that was just one example of many  but yeah he he you can slay me now and call me all those cool names I don't mind :-)

Jim bob Well, you don't have to like this, the groove of this it's to play odd things but on a 4/4 feel, this is supposed to be chaotic. It's such a thing like being in and out of time simutlaneosly, really jazzy stuff, recommemd you tu listen the Violent Sleep of Reasson! And of course Pamtera is a huge band ^^

Jim bob have you heard bleed? That song is epic. They are the pioneers of the djent movement. Listen to Don't look down as well. These guys set the bar as far as the next wave of metal.

It's called bassline motherfuckers. Also, don't complain saying this isnt groove or one dimensional bullshit. Thomas Haake had made arecord setting of hardest drum in history of groove metal, which is Bleed. It took them one year to accomplish that level. You are either a faggot that dont appreciate people's effort, or you're just a faggot.

if you think bleed is the hardest, you obviously have never listened to any of their albums!

So, people are trying to compare Haake with guys like Mangini and saying Mangini is "faster" and has more technique. They don't realize that Haake has mastered the art of playing extremely complex polyrhythms while simultaneously  maintaining a driving 4/4 Groove with great Feel and Taste, 3 traits that are sorely lacking in a majority of Metal drummers who are more concerned with only speed and technique. One exception would be Gene Hoglan, who has tremendous chops, but also has groove and feel.

You forgot Tool´s drummer, Mr. Danny Carey, Polyrythms with a driving pulse is his main thing.

AS5A the way Thomas can play different time signatures at the same time is mind blowing. The level of coordination to have each limb completely independent is ridiculous.

To everyone saying the bass tone isn't nice, I agree with you. However, you have to imagine that bass tone combined with the other 2 guitars, as they mix the 3 tones to make one big sound.

Meshuggah is some kind of jazzmetal. Deathjazz. I am not about to argue the right name for the style, but clearly some fusion of metal and jazz.

No offense, but i feel really sorry for simple minded folk who cant find groove in this. move along and listen to something that's been recycled and reproduced specifically for your basic listening needs.

that bass timbre is like a angry demonic buffalo
4:46 the super-mega-lightspeed technician all drummers dreamed about

Perfect tone. Perfect rhythm. Perfect groove. Perfect spine and phallus erection I have everytime I listen to this song. I GET ERECTED, PEOPLE, ERECTED. I mean. 03:46. COME ON PEOPLE, WHAT THE FUCK? HOW CAN ANYONE BE SO MUCHO FUCK IN THE HEAD TO USE THOSE NOTES FOR A GROOVY PART. I feel like my white stuff melts as I came inside my beudi.
