remix of Meshuggah's _Nothing_? what's the point. packaging totally awesome though. hmm, music...HUGE. heavier than frkq. maybe not such a bad idea. guitars like a machine that grinds up bones and steel. vocals quite mechanical and nicely integrated as a texture. rhythms seemingly more vicious, more neck-snapping. changes to songs, some subtle -- the staccato snare roll interlude in "Spasm" -- some crazy -- "Obsidian" is twice as long, twice as cosmically alientating, and way more notes and twisted changing rhythms. dynamics slightly flatter -- "closed eye visual" lacks the truly frightening punch-in-the-teeth of the transition out of the quiet, soft arpeggios in the middle to the super-death crunch afterwards. this is now possibly the heaviest thing in their catalog, and that is saying much. the scariness of this album is too much. definitely worth picking up if you love the original.
