Massive Metal Monday: Meshuggah “Clockworks”
  |  @   |  

Swedish Metal juggernaut Meshuggah has just released its eighth studio album, The Violent Sleep of Reason, via Nuclear Blast Records. The album is true to the band’s pummeling, polyrhythmic pedigree. Definitely not easy listening, but well worth the journey for the truly progressive metalhead.

“Clockworks,” the album’s jarringly massive opening track, clocks in at over seven minutes, so naturally they made it also the first official video. The visually morphing landscape of the clip is a perfect analogy for the music that accompanies it. But then trying to describe either the music or the visuals is roughly equivalent to trying to describe the power and devastation of a hurricane to someone who’s never been through one.

The “Clockworks” video is one best experienced firsthand, so I’ll leave you to it. Be sure to pick up a copy of this record! It’s going to land at or near the top of many, many “best of” lists this year and for very good reason!
