Meshuggah are in the Studio Let’s All Freak Out OMG OMG OMG
What an age we live in: a mere photo of a microphone hovering over a snare drum is guaranteed to send the entire Metalnets into a frenzy.
Surely Meshuggah knew this when they posted the below on Facebook earlier today. The implication being: OMG NEW MESHUGGAH LET’S ALL FREAK OUT WHHOOOOOOOOAAA
I mean, I love Meshuggah as much as the next guy, but it’s hard not to step back and chuckle at shit like this. And yes, the irony that here I am posting about it — and that this post is guaranteed to get a metric fuck-ton of clicks — is not lost on me.
So, there you have it. Drum tracking is typically the first stage of recording, meaning the band still has a whole lot of work to do. A fall 2016 is probably the earliest we’ll realistically hear the results of Meshuggah’s labor. But, all the above said, I’m still pretty damn excited — new Meshuggah! Koloss, which came out in 2012, was a beast of a record, and most importantly it saw the band pushing new ground instead of just re-hashing. Let’s hope they do so again.
