Big news, everyone! Meshuggah, easily one of today’s most influential metal bands, has announced that they have completed work on their highly anticipated seventh album. Last night, the band updated their official website with the above image and the following piece of news:
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.
Excellent! This new record (which I am going to speculate has a title cryptically placed in the above news post—possibly The Other Side?) will be the follow-up to 2008’s critically acclaimed obZen and will be released March 27th on Nuclear Blast Records. We’ll have more updates on this whenever we get it!
