It’s finally here, the long awaited follow-up to 2016’s Meta is just around the corner. The up and coming math metal luminaries in Car Bomb have confirmed that they will be releasing their fourth full-length album this fall. Meta was a smashing success, breaking new ground in the mathcore/technical metal scene, with some daring new ideas and tasteful reiterations of well cemented tropes by tech metal legends Meshuggah.
Additional, Car Bomb just released a single off their upcoming album, titled “Dissect Yourself“. Clocking in at just fifteen seconds shy of three minutes, it is a punishing affair which showcases a new side of the band we could’ve never conceived. The first thing I would note is that production feels a bit more rough, loose and organic as opposed to the previous material. This makes things feel more cohesive and even more brutal. We have some really flashy guitar work going on, the chugs are on point as always and the insanely pitch shifted harmonics slash through like space age laser guns. The rhythmic side of things is leaning even further in the broken beat area of things and things could not be any juicier to be perfectly honest. There’s nothing I can really say about the percussion and the vocal parts, they’re absolutely perfect.

The album was mixed by none other than Periphery‘s Adam “Nolly” Getgood and it was recorded at Silvercord Studios. For those of you that aren’t familiar with that name, it’s Gojira‘s own studio in Brooklyn, New York. Guitarist Greg Kubacki had a few words to share about this and the upcoming album:
This time we really paid attention to song structure, and wanted to make this song lean and mean.  There are some elements in our older material that to us now seems a little too over-indulgent now.  With this, we really tried to make it compact and impactful.”
“We did this whole record on our own this time around, but we had the pleasure of recording at Silvercord studios (Gojira’s HQ). We learned a lot and had a blast dicking around in the studio

What can I say? I love slapping keys and listening to squiggly air.
