Meshuggah Post New Single The Abysmal Eye From Upcoming Album 'Immutable'

Friday, 28 January 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Meshuggah have shared the first taste of their forthcoming new album.

Delivering their relentless brutality in the form of The Abysmal Eye, the pulverising track previews the Swedish extreme tech-metal giants' long awaited ninth studio full-length, 'Immutable', due out on April 1 via Atomic Fire.

The record will mark the band's first since 2016, and first since guitarist Fredrik Thordendal reunited with the group in 2021, after taking a break in 2017. Discussing the follow-up to 2016's 'The Violent Sleep Of Reason', guitarist Mårten Hagström said:

"For us, it wasn’t all that clear that we were making a new album. We knew we could do it, but did we want to do it?

"We had to decide, are we doing this or what else are we doing? After a long, long discussion, we agreed on certain things. We would make an album with as few restraints as possible. We would go in and try to make as cool an album as possible, have no anxiety about it and see it as an opportunity. How do we make this a challenge that we feel like accepting and rising up to? Pretty quickly we had a starting point. Everybody started to write, the ball started rolling and suddenly we were sitting there, discussing how many songs we were going to have to cut!"

'Immutable' tracklist:

1. Broken Cog
2. The Abysmal Eye
3. Light the Shortening Fuse
4. Phantoms
5. Ligature Marks
6. God He Sees in Mirrors
7. They Move Below
8. Kaleidoscope
9. Black Cathedral
10. I Am that Thirst
11. The Faultless
12. Armies of the Preposterous
13. Past Tense
