Is This 39 Seconds of New Meshuggah Music?


The Meshuggah speculation machine is now in full swing as fan rumors mount that the Swedish progressive groove metal pioneers are readying their ninth studio album for release, believed to be titled Immutable.

A new website at Immutable.se has surfaced that is believed to be part of the band’s new album rollout campaign. The site features a 39-second video of new music, a sign-up for Meshuggah’s newsletter, links to their socials and various references to the band within the site’s code. You can listen to the music clip below.

A purported release date for Immutable is listed on the site as April 1, 2022. While that is indeed a Friday, the day of the week on which releases typically come out, it should be noted that it is also April Fool’s Day.

If the site is indeed official, Immutable would be the band’s first album since The Violent Sleep of Reason came out in 2016.

Meshuggah issued a statement in December indicating that the completion of their next album had been delayed due to the pandemic as well as “one of the band members who is currently undergoing medical treatment related to a skin condition on his hands.” The band’s planned early 2022 U.S. tour with Torche was moved to the fall at the same time.
