Meshuggah au scos un nou videoclip pentru piesa  They Move Below

Pionierii suedezi de extreme tech-metal Meshuggah au lansat un videoclip nou pentru piesa „They Move Below”. Clipul a fost produs cu ajutorul unui program AI pentru ca artworkul rezultat sa se poata potrivi perfect cu tema melodiei. „They Move Below” este o piesa preluata de pe cel de-al noualea album de studio al trupei Meshuggah, „Immutable”, care a fost lansat in mai prin Atomic Fire.

Continuarea piesei „The Violent Sleep Of Reason” din 2016 a fost inregistrata la Sweetspot Studios din Halmstad, Suedia, mixata de Rickard Bengtsson si Staffan Karlsson si masterizata de multiplu castigator al premiului Grammy, Vlado Meller (Metallica, rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, System Of A Down, etc.). Artistul vizionar Luminokaya a creat uimitoarul artwork de pe coperta.

Chitaristul Marten Hagstrom din Meshuggah a discutat despre albumul „Immutable” in timpul unei aparitii la podcastul „No Fuckin’ Regrets With Robb Flynn” al liderului Machine Head, Robb Flynn. El a spus: „It's a double album, if this was a vinyl. It's 13 tracks; 66 or 67 minutes of music. It's the longest album we've put out so far, to this date. And it's a bit funny, 'cause when we started writing, I was really adamant that, 'Let's try to make a 'Reign In Blood' album' — like the Meshuggah 'Reign In Blood' album; just short but sweet. Not maybe 27 minutes, but keep it just over half an hour. 'Cause albums aren't what they used to be anyways; it's singles. So, obviously, we went the opposite direction and made a double album and just built it as an album and thought of it as, like back in the day, very important with the track listing and all that s**t."

"For us, it was, like we always do, trying to find the… What's the MESHUGGAH sound? How do we keep it but make it interesting to us?" a continuat acesta. "'Cause that's been our modus operandi all along: if we please ourselves, we please our fans. That's how it's been. So that's what we need to take care of. We started writing it when we came off that COVID truncated touring cycle, and then, after that, it was just all systems go. We've been working our asses off for almost three years now. And we're really happy with the result. We may have tried out a few things that we haven't done before — not anything mindblowing. But from the reactions we've been getting so far, I think it's pretty much what we hoped for. 'Cause people are saying that it's an unexpected album. And that might sometimes be a bad thing, but in our minds, it can never be. And nobody said that it was surprising in a bad way; only positive so far. So we'll see. You know what it's like. When you work on an album, you really don't know. When you're done with it, everything's so jumbled up in your head, you don't know how to feel about it. It's just, like, 'Okay. Good enough. Let it go.'But we're really fired up about it," a adaugat Marten.

"It's a lot of music. It's by far the most dynamic we've been on an album. And that's something we've been going for. And I look forward to see how it comes across." a concluzionat acesta.

Hagstrom a mai declarat anterior despre titulul "Immutable": "The title fits perfectly for where we are as a band. We're older now. Most of us are in our fifties now, and we've settled into who we are. Even though we've been experimenting all along, I also think we've been the same since day one. The way we approach things and why we still make new albums, and why we still sound the way we do, it's immutable. Humanity is immutable, too. We commit the same mistakes over and over. And we are immutable. We do what we do, and we don't change."

Meshuggah si-a incheiat recent primul sau turneu in SUA din epoca pandemiei. Datele, planificate initial pentru inceputul anului 2022, au inceput pe 16 septembrie in Worcester, Massachusetts si s-au incheiat pe 16 octombrie la Atlanta.
