Formed in 1987 in Umeå, Sweden, Meshuggah have gone on to be called “one of the ten most important hard and heavy bands” by Rolling Stone and have earned the respect and admiration from fans and musicians alike.
It is impossible to talk about experimental or avantgarde metal without mentioning this truly groundbreaking act: MESHUGGAH mix ultra-complicated rhythmic patterns with massive riffs and aggressive growls, combining Death Metal, Mathcore, Thrash and Progressive Metal to create their unique style.
The year 2023 now marks the 25th anniversary of one of the band’s earliest milestones: “Chaosphere”.
Originally released on November 9th, 1998, Meshuggah’s 3rd full length studio album shows the band toning down some of the thrashier sounds of previous releases in favour of the more technical, polyrhythmic, groove-oriented sound they would go to explore on subsequent albums. The album contains the songs “New Millennium Cyanide Christ”, “Corridor of Chameleons”, and “Neurotica”, some of the band’s most streamed tracks, among other highlights.
To commemorate the albums’s quarter-century anniversary, Atomic Fire will unleash a sonically updated version of the album.
The re-release of this masterpiece comes in hi-def audio (remastered by Thomas Eberger and Sofia von Hage at Stockholm Mastering) on all streaming platforms, as well as a CD jewel case format (incl. 8-page booklet) and stunning new vinyl colors (most are limited worldwide to under 1500 of each color, 180 grams, 2LP in 5 mm Sleeve incl. 2-page insert), to complete every collector’s dream.
