Sounds | Meshuggah, The Abysmal Eye


Je hebt tonnen bands die heel straffe shit uitbrengen wanneer het op progressive metal en de sub djent aankomt. En dan heb je Meshuggah, de meesters zelf. Hun combinatie van retestrakke, ultra-gedowntunede riffs met een hoog technisch vernuft, polyritmische grooves én bakken gevoel blijft uniek, simpelweg omdat ze de grondleggers ervan zijn. Bewijst The Abysmal Eye dat nu die bijhorende knappe video krijgt die nog otbrak.


Immutable verschijnt op 1april (de lolbroeken) via Atomic Fire. Live woensdag 18 mei, Poppodium 013 (Tilburg) maandag 23 mei, Ancienne Belgique, (Brussel) dinsdag 24 mei, l'Aéronef (Lille)

Meshuggah’s new video gives us a glimpse of a mythic and emotionally charged journey in a brutal uninhabitable desert wasteland in an arthouse blockbuster, starring malevolent forces and brutal powers. Exciting experimental elements, otherworldly scenes, bodies flying through the air, humanoids turning into dust,… Meshuggah leads the viewer deep into the world of “The Abysmal Eye” which takes viewers on a dazzling adventure catching a glimpse of the surreal realm of Meshuggah’s latest song. The video was produced by Digital Thunderdome / IRWIN and directed by Scott Hansen.


Legendary. Unique. Immutable. 

Six years on from the band's most recent full-length, "The Violent Sleep Of Reason", 2022 brings a fresh and fearsome revelation from Meshuggah. Shattering even the highest of expectations, the band's ninth album is simply their wildest and most esoteric sonic adventure yet. 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.
