I wrote a review of Meshuggah's Catch 33 about five or six weeks ago, and sent it off to the Cleveland Scene. It vanished. Now, all of a sudden, here it is in this week's paper.

Does this mean the album has a street date? I sure hope so; it's an astonishing record, guaranteed to make metal fans (and metal-friendly critics) shit themselves with joy, and forget all about the crushing disappointment they felt when they heard the new System of a Down disc.

After checking the Nuclear Blast website, it seems Catch 33 is coming out on Tuesday. Wow; they're doing almost as much publicity for it as Limp Bizkit did for that EP they pinched off the other week. Well, you heard it here: Catch 33 is fucking mind-roasting, and you owe it to yourself to go buy one on Tuesday.
