Meshuggah Unveil Release Date for Upcoming Album

Facebook: Meshuggah

You may have been introduced to the sweet sounds of Meshuggah during a 2002 episode of the classic reality show ‘The Osbournes,’ when Jack Osbourne blasted the Swedish extreme metal band at full volume to annoy his neighbors. Now, 10 years later, Meshuggah have announced a March 27 release date for their new album.

Meshuggah have left a trail of iconic destruction throughout their 25-year career, becoming one of the most celebrated acts in extreme metal. The extreme Swedes delivered the following message on their official site:

After a long time of deep soul searching and intense wrecking of the psyches, the new album is finally done. Soon you will meet this colossus that will pulverize your being. Welcome to the other side on March 27.

Meshuggah guitarist Fredrik Thordendal recently spoke with Guitar World about the construction of their newest offering. “I’m so excited about this one,” raved Thordendal. “We’ve always tried to change how we write songs to keep it exciting, but on recent albums we’ve also been moving further away from working together as a band.”

“On this album, though, everyone is working together,” continued the axe-man. “Every day that we’re in the studio, we’ll play whatever song we’re working on, record a demo version of it to analyze at home, and then come back the next day, talk about it and try to make it better. I think because of this, it’s going to be our best album yet.”

Meshuggah received critical praise for their last release, 2008’s ‘obZen,’ which sold over 50,000 copies in the U.S. within six months.
