Yesterday, Meshuggah released the name of their new album — Koloss. That’s all the Meshuggah news we had, but we wrote about it anyway, explaining: “It’s really not much news, but frankly this is one of those albums where every tiny morsel will receive and deserve attention.” Today, we have more Meshuggah morsels. First, we have the album art — which is utter coolness. We also now have the track list. I’ve never figured out what good it does to have a track list before the music is released, but here it is:

01. I Am Colossus
02. The Demon’s Name Is Surveillance
03. Do Not Look Down
04. Behind The Sun
05. The Hurt That Finds You First
06. Marrow
07. Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion
08. Swarm
09. Demiurge
10. The Last Vigil

So, chew on that shit until we have the next morselage. And meanwhile, you can feast your eyes on another eye-catching piece of album art for another album we’re highly anticipating around here — the new one from Belgian black metal band Enthroned (after the jump).

Enthroned recently signed a two-album deal with Agonia Records. Their new album, Obsidium, will be released soon. It will feature this artwork, created by Olve J. W. l. It’s awesome, no?

Thank you Andy Synn for the tips on these new album covers.


  1. By Odin, I love that Enthroned art! I can’t say I know them too well, but I certainly am looking forward to this new album!

  2. shitloads of amazing news this week, sounds like 2012 is going to kick ass, new spawn of possession, new cannibal, new meshuggah and surprisingly new enthroned, now i just need some news about necrophagist and wintersun and i could care less if the world ended in 2012.

    • That’s a good attitude. I think “who gives a shit if the world ends today” is better than “today is the first day of the rest of your life.” Particularly because today could actually be the rest of your life.

  3. Thankfully, you didn’t post the shitty album cover for the new Soulfly.

  4. I think the Enthroned art is phenomenal, but the Meshuggah art… I can see the cartoon frog too much.
