Breakthrough

However, despite the stylistic simplicity of the band's first album, Meshuggah continued to push forward and their second album, Destroy Erase Improve, showed a newly found maturity in which the outfit explored more influences and were able to combine their love of speed metal and thrash with more sophisticated jazz flourishes and the influence of jazz fusion. The band included several different time signatures and elements of math metal that really grabbed the attention of metal fans all over the world even as some critics early on had difficulty appreciating the subtleties of Meshuggah's unique sound.
