Car Bomb is compared to Meshuggah too often, probably as a result of everyone trying to define their sound. To me, the difference between the two is Car Bomb's ability to innovate. They're known for a repertoire of unique guitar screeches and dive-bombs, and there's a new library of them on every album. Meta is no exception -- it's the latest vehicle for their brutal, genre-subverting creativity. Hoffman kills it on this album especially.
