Swedish extreme tech metal band Meshuggah has teamed up with Scion A/V to release a two-track EP entitled Pitch Black. The EP features a live rendition of “Dancers To A Discordant System”, which comes from the Obzen album, as well as a brand new song entitled “Pitch Black”. The EP is available for free download below.
Meshuggah’s latest album Koloss landed at #6 on my Top Albums of 2012. You can see the full list here. READ MORE
We have arrived. The final five riffs that make you NEED to headbang. It’s been one helluva week getting to this point and I’m sure that many of you are dying to know which songs I’ve picked as the elite amongst the elite. If you’re not already too sore to move your head some more, head on inside for the ultimate dose of guitar riff punishment.
One of my favorite tech-metal bands out there is Meshuggah. I’ve seen the guys live twice (both times as openers to Tool) and I have played ‘obZen’ more times than I can count. So color me excited as the video below features drummer Tomas Haake and vocalist Jens Kidman discussing what the sound of the next Meshuggah album will be like.
Also, just for fun, watch the video and only watch Jens. I have no idea what is going through his head, but apparently, it’s making him slightly insane.
