Meshuggah's latest album, Koloss, is another step sideways by a band with a history of pushing forwards. After a string of innovative albums, the band peaked in 2005 with Catch Thirtythr33, a single song which displayed a near-classical mastery of large scale structure in addition to seeing the band at their most texturally and harmonically experimental.
