“Pitch Black” isn’t a song, it’s a slow descent into an endless abyss of polyrhythms (ok, maybe not endless). Meshuggah has a way of painting mathematical pictures through their music, and this single is no exception. Weaving through the eerie mists of deep grooves, you’ll step into oblivion. Most of the song is instrumental and there’s great musical chaos to be had here. Jens Kidman sits out as drummer Thomas Haake gives a spoken chant to send you off into awesome, groovy greatness.
I can’t criticize this release musically or objectively. Meshuggah is the shit. Period. I HIGHLY recommend you download this. If you didn’t see the link, it’s down below. If you wanna give it a listen first, both tracks are available right here, right now. Enjoy \m/
