sorry if they sounded insulting, i tend to be touchy when talking about meshuggah, now I know you weren't referring to their technical stuff so it's clear now. i'm aware that mesh sounds repetitive, and that the melodies are a little quiet, but they're meant not to be the main thing, since their Not...

And from what you've been saying, the main edge Meshuggah has over other bands is the odd time signatures they play in. ABR plays in odd meters too. Actually, I've played my fair share of odd and mixed meters, but I fail to see what is so difficult about it, especially if it's a syncopated rhythm t...

What Meshuggah was described to me as is metal with jazzy undertones. All I hear is percussive guitar riffing, albeit in complex meter, with barely audible complementary guitar parts at some junctions. It reminds me of Bolt Thrower in the fact that their riff writing is far from terrible, but they ...

I've honestly tried to get into these guys. I've listened for the intricate guitar parts, but haven't been really able to hear them. Either they have to start mixing them higher or they shouldn't put them in at all. hmm maybe you should work on your ear i dunno. OR you're probably expecting some ki...

Re: Musical conundrums...

If learning theory wasn't hard enough we've got to contend with this sort of thing too... B# is not quite the same as C natural ! The melodic minor scale is different on the way up than it is on the way down !! (ascending sharpens the 6th & 7th degrees) Technically 'E' in C major weighs in at 330Hz...

most commercially AND technically brilliant musicians are from a time where technically brilliant meant comercially brilliant..ie the 70's and 80's, maybe the 60's too
in general, anyone from the 90's and 00's that's commercially brilliat is not technically brilliant and viceversa
