Meshuggah Name Forthcoming Album Koloss?

Look -- see?
It looks that way.

The webstore of Nuclear Blast Records has a listing for the forthcoming album from Swedish experimental masters Meshuggah, and it seems to indicate the album’s title is Koloss.

Not sure what that means. I Googled it, but I don’t think Meshuggah would name their album after “large and dangerous beasts that the Lord Ruler uses in his army.” Whatever the fuck that means.

Looks like the album will be available as a limited-edition Magic Cube (CD digi plus DVD exclusive to Nuclear Blast mail order). Pretty rad!

Meshuggah have been working on the new album for months. I wonder why they named it Koloss? I am sure it will be explained at some point.

“After a long time of deep soul searching and intense wrecking of the psyches, the new album is finally done,” Meshuggah previously said in a statement.

“Soon you will meet this colossus that will pulverize your being,” the band adds. “Welcome to the other side on March 27.”

So, Koloss…thoughts?
