Meshuggah - ObZen Import Vinyl 2LP
Meshuggah ObZen Import Vinyl 2LP
One of the most prolific bands on Nuclear Blast, the majority of Swedish extreme tech-metal pioneers Meshuggah's catalog has been unavailable on vinyl for years. A series of new colored editions from the label boast newly remastered audio for spectacular sound and newly designed gatefold jackets. The second installment of reissues being released in March 2019 include: Nothing (2002), I EP (2004), obZen (2008) and Koloss (2012). The re-designed album artwork was completed by Keerych Luminokaya. For the remastering, Meshuggah enlisted Thomas Eberger of Stockholm Mastering who worked on The Violent Sleep of Reason which secured the band their first Grammy nomination.
While the term "genre-defining" gets tossed around quite frequently these days in the music industry, and most especially the heavy metal industry, it is truly the only proper term to align with the head expanding sounds created by Meshuggah. The band began its formation in Umeå, Sweden in 1987. With over 25 years and eight full length albums as masters in this realm, the band have been on an endless journey to outwardly reveal their uncommon sonic stamp. This greatly pertains to the musical precision required in order to create songs with such unique time signatures.
2008's obZen found Meshuggah mixing influences from both their past and present (and future it seems). The dynamic affair offers up differing tempos and vibes from song to song and features one of the most extreme Meshuggah tracks to date with "Bleed." obZen entered the U.S Billboard charts at No. 59 and led to the band's first world tour.
