Swedish extreme metal titans Meshuggah were able to knock off Neurosis in our latest Death Match, beginning Meshuggah's second run toward the Death Match Hall of Fame. The band's track 'Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion' has already been declared immortal in the sacred hall, but now Meshuggah have the opportunity to be the first act to ever earn two Death Match Hall of Fame spots.
Meshuggah were back at full strength Friday night (Feb. 15) in New York, even if frontman Jens Kidman was still a bit under the weather. The vocalist has been suffering from the flu and recently had to miss a couple of the band's shows, but he triumphantly returned for the New York performance.
Meshuggah vocalist Jens Kidman has been fighting a serious flu during his band's current North American tour with Animals as Leaders + Intronaut. Since Feb. 12, Kidman has been unable to perform because of his affliction, forcing the rest of the Swedish extreme metal band to get creative with filling Kidman's vacant spot.
Experimental post metal legends Neurosis have defeated fellow alchemists Cult of Luna in our latest Death Match. With the Californian act claiming their first Death Match win, they've got a chance to make it into the Death Match Hall of Fame by securing three more wins. However, in order to gain another win, Neurosis have to shatter through one of extreme metal's biggest acts.
A devastating earthquake hit New York City last night. It affected somewhere between 2000-3000 people by a fault line created underneath 56th St. and 11th Ave at the Terminal 5 concert venue. Geologists believe that the earthquake was caused by sonic brutality unleashed by Meshuggah at their May 23 concert date. All concertgoers survived, but none will be the same.
Meshuggah's video for 'Break the Bones Whose Sinews Gave it Motion' is a six-minute performance clip, shot in black and white. While on the surface, that might seem like a snoozefest, remember, this is Meshuggah we're talking about. The band could cause the earth's plates to shift, thanks to the force of the metal they make.
