Have you recovered from the excitement of Meshuggah‘s recent Immutable album announcement? We barely have, but we’re here to share more with you. Wall of Sound writer KJ Draven recently attended a press conference with the Swedish tech-metalers where Immutable was first revealed, and he learned a lot, particularly from drummer Tomas Haake.
Meshuggah‘s ninth studio album will be released on April 1st, 2022 via Nuclear Blast. The djent-creators have now unmuted the lead single of the upcoming record, titled ‘The Abysmal Eye‘. Here’s what our Meshuggah fan KJ thought of the track:
‘The Abysmal Eye’ is classic Meshuggah. At the presser, Tomas described the album as “a little more old school” and the first single definitely fits that description. Kicking off that with that classic crunch and staccato double kick that thumps you in the chest, ‘The Abysmal Eye’ thunders along until Jens Kidman lets loose with his growl. It’s not a catchy single in the traditional sense but you’ll be humming that riff for a while afterwards. And the solo? Shit man, Fredrik Thordendal just crushes it. It’s perfectly apocalyptic.
Enjoy the new track at midnight local time.
