Fredrick Thorendal's (Meshuggah) well-regarded solo album.The whole album is one 50 minute song that is extremely heavy, hypnotic, psychedelic, and rhythmically complex. It's an extratrerrestrial story told by crushing Metal+Prog+Free Jazz+some of the wierdest guitar solos you're ever gonna hear.
It doesn't get much better

"Thirty sum years of metal have all led up to this point. It's all downhill from here. No need to repeat the near-rabid accolades of all previous reviews, but i will add this - if you want this album for less than $150.00 US, go to Morgan Agren's website; Amazon doesn't like URL's in their reviews, but it's not hard to find, being that it is his name with a ".com" suffix. He plays the drums on this album, and it's available there for about $20 US."
Crazy Fun Stuff

"The only album by the solo project of Meshuggah guitarist Fredrik Thordendal is an interesting and crazy album. Imagine taking "Destroy Erase Improve", but modifying it to be more of a concept album and cutting it down into 26 fragments (originally 28), plus Fredrik's guitar talent standing out more. Every track is unique and technical in its own way. A whole array of different instruments is used, including a sax, a synthesizer, and a church organ. This album is one big psychotic mindtrip, and I highly recommend for your collection if you enjoy Meshuggah or just straight up technical metal."
