Haven't seen too many concerts this year, but I went to the 3-day North Sea Jazz-festival in The Hague. Saw a lot of fabulous musicians there, including McCoy Tyner and Elvin Jones (two of my musical heroes, I am a big Coltrane-fan) , Mike Keneally & BFD and a lot of other artists.

Best one has been 6 months ago (maybe more?) David Bowie in Lucca (Italia); I'm waiting for Bjork, in June, in Verona).

[quote author=Arkay link=board=general;num=1033524778;start=15#17 date=03/26/03 at 14:20:34]<br>I didn't know any Meshuggah, so I looked em up on allmusicguide.  They describe them as a progressive metal band with various influences, pschadelice etc...<br>It seems like they could be about anything!  Gimme a clue as to why you like em.<br>Thanx,<br>- Arkay[/quote]<br><br>Sebastiaans words fit the band like a glove. Messhuggah is very aggressive, very rhythmic and  very heavy in all ways. Here´s a short snippet of sound:<br><br>http://www.bullymag.com/9.6.02/mesh1.ram<br><br>And here are some descriptive words from a website i found:<br><br>How does one describe Meshuggah? To call them a heavy band would sell them short, forgetting the intricate rhythmic textures they work with. To call them a progressive metal band would betray the brutality of their sound. It is Slayer meets Rush. Or King Crimson meets old-school Metallica. Hell that's even an insult. Their sound is undefinable and all their own. <br><br><br><br> <br>Meshuggah's sound takes standard rhythms and twists them into intricate, multi-layered compositions that at first sound as their being played in odd-time. In weird sort of way, lead singer Jens Kidman becomes the foundation with his straightforward growling, while the rest of the members can weave off into different rhythmic patterns. Guitarists Fredrik Thorendal and Marten Hagstrom, both wielding downtuned guitars (even sporting specially crafted 8-string axes for their current tour) play in syncopated rhythms along with drummer Tomas Haake, creating a style that would thrill jazz players with its technique while horrifying them with its heaviness. Drummer Tomas Haake plays with four limbed independence that would frighten most rock drummers. Lead guitarist Thorendal seems to work in a sonic spectrum all his own, choosing licks that, much like the band's overall sound, are unique to him. <br><br>What's most incredible is that the sound keeps evolving. No two Meshuggah albums are the same. You could listen to Destroy Erase Improve and Chaosphere simultaneously and hear two completely different discs. Their newest album, Nothing, retreats back from the sonic velocity of Chaosphere and focuses more on a slower, grinding heaviness. <br><br>Live, the band hits with the intensity of a hardcore act, led by Kidman who throws himself to the frontline of the sonic assault. Much like the title of their album, the Meshuggah live set leaves it all to the music. No masks, no makeup, no fire or explosions. Just purely crushing music that makes the jaw drop at every instant. <br><br>Finally, Americans have begun to take notice of Meshuggah. While the rest of the world has already hailed these five Swedes as one of the most groundbreaking acts to grace the stage in quite some time, Americans didn't take notice until Ozzy Osbourne, Slayer, and Tool got involved and took Meshuggah out on the road with them. But in a way that's almost better. Rather than riding the crest of some trend, Meshuggah is coming up the old fashioned way - by creating incredible music and playing it in front of as many punters as possible. <br><br>---So if you are  into agressive and heavy music check them out. I myself like to get a "metal fix" from time to time...hey i grew up in the 80`s, you know?<br><br>By the way, there´s a sort of a Zappa connection, the swedish drummer Morgan Ågren (from Zappa´s universe) played on Thorendals solo cd.<br>
