Meshuggah

For years Meshuggah has been crafting their own, private music universe. A lot of bands aspired to follow in their footsteps, but failed. To put it simply: there is no other band that offers music as technically advanced and as perfect sound-wise as they do. And when you’d think they finally reached their limits, this spring they surprised us with their new album “Immutable,” pushing their music to yet a new level.
History:

Swedish music band was formed by vocalist and guitarist Jens Kidman in 1987 in Umea. As of 2017, it had released eight studio albums, two live albums and a number of mini-albums and compilations, all of which have received positive reviews from fans and music critics alike. His work has dealt with issues of the future, existentialism, apocalypse and chaos.

He has toured all over the world and participated in Ozzfest in the United States, among other events. Starting with the album ‘Nothing’, all subsequent albums have been recorded on the Billboard 200 sales chart, and the band has twice been nominated for the Swedish recording industry Grammis. The members are revered for their virtuosity, compositional complexity and contributions to heavy metal music. Rolling Stone magazine described Meshuggah as ‘one of the ten most important metal bands’.

The band has inspired other artists and groups, such as Mike Portnoy, Tool, Gym Class Heroes and Porcupine Tree. Recognition of the band was publicly expressed by Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett.
