Formed in the college town of Umea in northern Sweden in 1987, MESHUGGAH have spent the last twenty seven years and cumulative fourteen releases developing, exploring, and redefining their complex, inimitable approach on the art of expressing the music they hear in their heads. A group that has not sounded like anyone else in over two decades, MESHUGGAH are one of the few purely and honestly lateral-thinking forces, genuinely dedicated to pushing the boundaries of extreme music, simply because doing so comes naturally to them. One of many landmark releases their 2004 EP 'I' includes justone 21 minute track and saw the recording debut of bassist Dick Lovgren. Bonus tracks include 'Pitch Black' released in 2013 via Scion AV and 2 previously unreleased live tracks.
2014 still sees MESHUGGAH at the top of their game that has been extended and re-named by a whole influx of of new bands such as Gojira, Periphery and Karnivool.They all try to reach out to the godfathers of math, jazz,djent or whatever-you-wanna-call-it metal. They might come close, but never will deliver as these Swedes do for more than 27 years now.
