Biography

Meshuggah, whose name is taken from the Hebrew and Yiddish word for “crazy”, is a five-piece band from Umeå, Sweden, founded in 1987. The band's style is most easily described as extreme/technical metal with some jazz influence. They use extended polymetric passages, polyrhythmic drum patterns, angular, dissonant guitar riffs, and harsh vocals. Their lineup has always been consistent, apart from bass which has been handled by many people since the band’s inception. Their current lineup consists of Jens Kidman (vocals), Fredrik Thordendal (lead/rhythm guitar + backup vocals), Mårten Hagström (rhythm guitar + backup vocals), Dick Lövgren (bass) and Tomas Haake (drums).

    Lyrics
    Beams of fire sweep through my head
    Thrusts of pain increasingly engaged
    Sensory receptors succumb
    I'm no one now, only agony
    My crimson liquid so frantically spilled

    Lyrics
    No more ifs, no bias, no ambiguity
    No wondering whether this is it
    Clarity, so brightly shining
    The image so painfully absolute
    No edges blurred on this awareness

    Lyrics
    A state of perfection, immersed in filth
    Equilibrium obtained
    Pure in devotion to all things unwell
    This sweet Zen of our ill condition sustained
    A new belief-system

    Lyrics
    Humanity peeled from our bones
    Deprived of integuments that make us real
    Shadows of flesh to maintain the system
    Our own blood splashes as we kneel
    So meticulously machined

    Lyrics
    Squint your eyes to see clearly, blur reality to make it real
    Let focus go from your deceiving eyes to know what's been concealed
    We've all been blinded, subjects to visual misinformation
    A systematic denial of the crystalline
    To see the fine grain, to read the hidden words
    Rational Gaze  -  572,005 plays
