SAV Classics: Meshuggah “I Am Colossus”

Meshuggah - I Am Colossus

Back in 2012, Scion AV teamed up with Meshuggah to release a special single for “I Am Colossus,” from the Swedish technical metal act. Pulled from their album Koloss on Nuclear Blast, the original version was paired with a mechanical and grinding remix from Engine-EarZ and Foreign Beggars. At the time, Meshuggah’s drummer/lyricist Tomas Haake told the Scion Metal Zine, that they chose to open that particular track up to remixers since “it’s got a different rhythmic idea to it than a lot of the other songs.” Compare the two versions now to see what he means.

To get some more insight on Meshuggah’s process, watch the Scion Music(less) Music Conference studio visit with Daniel Bergstrand at Dugout Productions, where the album Koloss was made.
