YMMV: Meshuggah
  • Base Breaker: Meshuggah's music. Lets just leave it at that.
    • The debate between whether the original or reissue versions of Nothing are better than the other.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome - Metal fans with a keen on technical stuff adore this band. "I", "New Millennium Cyanide Christ", "Bleed", etc....
    • Epic Riff: Every single one. The ones from "Demiurge", off the Koloss album, in particular, are easily memorable.
  • Face of the Band: Arguably either Fredrik or Tomas. Jens is also a good contender.
  • Fandom Rivalry: With Gojira, although most would say it's a Friendly Rivalry.
  • Magnum Opus: Many, if not most fans say obZen. Koloss, with its organic feel and dense, epic sound, is a close second. Chaosphere is in third, as it is the album that solidified the band's current sound.
  • Mondegreen: I. LIKE. JUICE!! from "Rational Gaze"
  • Nightmare Fuel - They have their own page.
    • The video for "Bleed".
    • The lyrics to a lot of their songs are also terrifying, particularly the lyrics to "In Death - Is Death" and "New Millennium Cyanide Christ."
  • Seinfeld Is Unfunny - Metal blog Metal Sucks is already speculating that Koloss, in the post-djent metal scene will suffer from this. It did suffer from some backlash but was generally praised by both fans and critics.
  • Signature Song: "New Millennium Cyanide Christ" and/or "Bleed".
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Some older fans didn't really like the post-Chaosphere releases, as they felt that the band lost much of their musical aggression with their greater focus on slower, Pantera-esque tracks. Nothing and Catch Thirtythree, in particular, get hit by this sentiment the most.
