Swedish extreme tech-metal pioneers MESHUGGAH released their eighth studio album, “The Violent Sleep Of Reason“, today. In celebration of the new album, the band released a video for “Clockworks” which can be viewed below.
The first single “Born In Dissonance” can be heard here.
Lyrics video for the second single “Nostrum” can be heard here.
Tomas Haake comments about the album, “Basically, the whole idea of why we chose the title is it kinda connects with the lyrical content of the album. Which is to a fair degree about current events and what you see is going on as far as terrorism today, extremist views on ideals, and religious dogma and the violent implications that you get from being asleep so to speak and not acting/reacting to what is going on in the proper way.”
The album was produced by the band and was engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark. For the cover, the band once again enlisted Keerych Luminokaya who created the artwork for “Koloss” and “The Ophidian Trek” as well as the new images for each of the seven albums and three EPs featured in the “25 Years Of Musical Deviance” box set.
