CAR BOMB + Guitar World

"The eclectic album bursts with complex arrangements, brutal off-kilter riffs and deep grooves... Merges Deftones atmospheres and seasick Meshuggah riffs."
–Guitar World

"A rhythmically abstruse variety of extreme metal most obviously influenced by Meshuggah and The Dillinger Escape Plan... Car Bomb exceeds even their legendary capacity for zonks and skronks... Hallucinatory... Insanely brutal."

"Unclassifiable avant-math-something-core."

Guitar World has premiered new Car Bomb song "Gratitude," off the New York band's upcoming, third album Meta.

Listen, here:

"Gratitude" showcases Car Bomb's melodic side – it is a close to a "power ballad" as this band will probably get – while still wowing with deft tech-metal feints and combos. In the words of Guitar World, the song "merges Deftones atmospheres and seasick Meshuggah riffs."

Coming October 28th, the self-released Meta was produced by Gojira's Joe Duplantier and Car Bomb guitarist Greg Kubacki, and mixed and mastered by Josh Wilbur (Megadeth, Lamb of God, Hatebreed, Escape the Fate). A feast for the ears, the album melds sheer technical prowess and stunning musicality, deriving inspiration from across the spectrum, from Meshuggah to Aphex Twin to John Zorn.
