“A stunning collection of intelligent metal that perfectly combines technicality with power and hits you in the gut with every track.” – Kerrang! KKKK ,

“It’s an intelligent, challenging and ultimately rewarding album, which will no doubt impress and reveal itself further on the 13th listen.” – Rock Sound 9/10


Hugely well respected, Meshuggah have arguably delivered their finest album ever. 2008’s “Obzen” is once again a masterpiece of diversity and surprises. From the brutal up tempo of opener “Combustion” to the machine gun riffing of “Blood Red”, from the epic and heavy as f%&k “Lethargica” to skewed timings of “Pineal Gland Optics”, this album is a legendary band at their finest.

,Meshuggah formed in the late 1980’s in Umea in Sweden. After releasing their debut EP in 1989 the band signed to Nuclear Blast and released their full length debut album “Contradictions Connect” in 1991. “Obzen” will be the bands eighth studio album, previous releases including the 1998’s legendary “Chaosphere”. The band are an established live draw have played numerous festival worldwide (including main stage at Ozzfest) and toured the USA with Tool on two separate occasions. They will be presenting their new masterpiece in the UK in early September.
