vilken svensk musikband är din favorit?
now that i've offended native svenska speakers with my very basic knowledge of the language, i'll ask the english-speakers: what's your favorite swedish band?
i nominate meshuggah.
in before 'ABBA'.
I would have gone with Arch Enemy a couple albums ago... but now I don't know what.
Meshuggah's constant switching between weird timings just sounds cacophonous to me. Maybe it's the way I'm programmed. I get how it's all technically challenging and stuff, but it just doesn't sound very palatable. Here's where metal nerds call me an idiot without taste, and I respond with how shitty they are as human beings. I have a friend who does electronic music exclusively with similar odd timings and I have the same response. It's kinda like hearing somebody speaking a strange foreign language. Like I said, maybe it's something in my brain being incapable of locking on to the odd beats, but they do not sound how they were described to me.
Opeth's actual metal segments are pretty great. But they're usually so sparse.
