Yeah. But their fans LOVE that pretension. Musically, their stuff is just nuts. They'll play something in 15/8 but phrase it into three bars of 3/8, 7/8 and 5/8. You don't see that tight, precise, heavy sound outside of Meshuggah or Necrophagist. With those band, however, the vocals are completely unintelligible and monotonous.
