MESHUGGAH: New Album Release Date Announced - Jan. 4, 2012
Swedish experimental extreme metallers MESHUGGAH have issued the following update:

"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."

In a 2011 interview with Guitar World magazine, MESHUGGAH guitarist Fredrik Thordendal was asked whether the band has been working on new music. "Yes, we are working on a new album and have been for a long time," Fredrik said. "I'm so excited about this one. 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. 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."

Regarding the approach to the new music, MESHUGGAH drummer Tomas Haake told Decibel magazine in a 2010 interview, "Maybe not try to be as anal about every single little hit [that] has to be super-tight but be more focused on the vibe of a track and let some of those tiny errors slip through. I think that kinda breeds a bit of life into a song."

Released in March 2008, MESHUGGAH 's last album, "obZen", debuted at No. 59 on The Billboard 200 chart and at No. 14 on the iTunes Top Rock Albums chart.

MESHUGGAH's first DVD, "Alive" sold around 3,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 8 on the Top Music Videos chart.

Fuck yeah! I remember them saying at the beginning of last year that they might have an album ready for the fall, and I hadn't really heard anything since. Can't wait till March!

2012 should be an excellent year for new metal albums, and this one will probably be one of the centrepieces.

And I get to see them live in a couple of months!

Has anyone noticed how this decade is shaping up to be the biggest in metal EVER !?! Talk about hitting the ground running...

It's really nice to see when "inspiration-bands" creates new music. Meshuggah is always lightyears ahead with their riffs and drumbeats so they always suprise. Im not really into all "Djent" bands because they sound like a copy of Meshuggah "eldorado food" quality. Meshuggah is always Meshuggah and should have copyright of their sound in my POV, why even try to create such a powerful sound when you can let Meshuggah do it. Im sure the 2012 album will be the blast of the year. sciencemetal ftw.
