Meshuggah are still operating on a higher level of metallic consciousness than just about anyone else. Since forming in 1987, the Swedish sound architects known as Meshuggah developed into one of the most technically complex and virtuosic group of players the metal realm has ever encountered. Their distinctly unique brand of progressive groove-infused death metal inadvertently launched an entirely new subgenre. Being one of the most inventive and widely revered metal bands of the last 3 decades, Meshuggah have been standard-bearers for forward-thinking creativity in heavy music throughout their illustrious career. Over the course of more than 30 years and eight studio albums, Sweden’s widely worshipped progressive mavens have consistently redefined what it means to be heavy while exhibiting a ferocious intelligence that belies the crushing weight of their riffs. From the ground-breaking savagery of 1995’s “Destroy Erase Improve” to the psychedelic tech-splorations of “CatchyThirtyThree” and on to the streamlined grotesquery of “ObZen” and “Koloss“, Meshuggah have always been way ahead of the game and plainly without peer. The new Meshuggah album “Immutable” is recorded at Sweetspot Studios in Halmstad (Sweden), mixed by Rickard Bengtsson & Staffan Karlsson, and mastered by multiple Grammy award winner Vlado Meller (Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, System Of A Down). Visionary artist Luminokaya once again created the stunning cover artwork.
Mavericks. Pioneers. Unique. Immutable.
“Thirty years on the throne and counting, Meshuggah can still ignite surprise after devastating surprise from within this beast of a genre. Between its brutally minimal grooves, bright cinematic vistas, slippery rhythmic sideswipes, disgusting bass bludgeoning, classic Thordendal solos, and overall darker sonic presentation, “Immutable” pioneers new territory for the band as much as it lays claim to everything that made them great for the past nine records.” – Decibel
“On “Immutable”, Meshuggah’s mission remains unchanged: to tunnel into the future, leaving metal’s tired tropes in the dust. Polished to an obsidian sheen, they have crafted a widescreen journey of stripped-back bludgeon, contorted rhythms, and dynamic surprises. It confirms them, yet again, as one of the most important heavy bands in the world.” – Knotfest.com
