The fans have spoken.

What the press is saying:
“Truly, a band with no equal.” – Outburn Magazine

“[O]ne of those rare bands you have to hear to believe.” -

"Tomas Haake [is] a pioneer in constructing head-scratching drum parts that seem to exist in two (or more) rhythmic spheres simultaneously.” -

“[MESHUGGAH’s got a] propensity for sonically representing life on Jupiter.  With Koloss, they open their groove vaults to the world.” - Decibel Magazine

“MESHUGGAH’s best yet. 4.5/5 Stars.”  -Revolver Magazine
