Math-metal insanity pulsating with weirdness and Low F strings.

Pros:Demented metal genius at work.

Cons:Demented metal isn't everyone's favourite genre.

Put it this way: during this 21 minute symphony of crazy european metal Jens Kidman screams "Chewing on the stinking flesh of the crown of creation."

If that kind of thing interests you, than you'll have an absolute blast with -I-. If an idea like that makes you worry for your children's safety and moral innocence you should keep your distance. -I- is a truly insane work of rhythmic genius, with Meshuggah's favourite rotating-time-signature polyrhythmic signature brimming over the edge and leaving the listener either enthused, invigorated or quivering under the blankets. It's perfect for annoying the hell out of your dog/flatmate/neighbour/spouse/children and it's the kind of song that makes you want to go and buy a Nevborn Eight-String guitar. The thunderous riffs and truly demented guitar solo are the real stars here. Metal maniacs rejoice, this is the only song you'll need for the rest of your life.
