Spread the metal:

With the North American release of MESHUGGAH’s eighth studio album, KOLOSS, these Swedish masters of the extreme are already on seven iTunes Top 10 Rock Albums charts:

#2 – U.S.

#2 – Canada

#2 – Sweden

#3 – Australia

#5 – Norway

#6 – France

#8 – U.K. hails KOLOSS as “the first real contender for the genre’s album of the year.  Practically every song throbs with an enthralling groove.  This unpredictability is what keeps them at the forefront of metal’s vanguard.  [O]ne of those rare bands you have to hear to believe.”

Two tracks off the new album – “Do Not Look Down” and “Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion” – can be streamed here.
