Meshuggah Set To Release Live DVD/Documentary

Meshuggah are one of the most pivotal bands on the metal scene today. Their approach to metal has completely altered the genre and they are responsible for helping create “Math Metal.” All metalheads respect the Swedish band of masterminds and their new releases, tours and shows continue to be a much sought-after experience.

2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the band’s formation and to commemorate they will release a CD/DVD collection called ‘The Ophidian Trek’ which intertwines behind the scenes footage of Meshuggah on their recent U.S. and Euro tour and a performance at 2013’s famed Wacken Open Festival in Germany. In addition to the standard version of the release, a Blu-ray version will be available as well.

Meshuggah is known for being a very “hands on” band who not only conceptualize their intricate songs but handle a lot of the production duties on all their records. Meshuggah guitarist Frederik Thordendal was in charge of the editing process for the live audio on this release and drummer Thomas Haake had this to say:- “We’re really stoked about this new Meshuggah live DVD! It’s been four years since the release of ‘Alive’ and with the band celebrating 25 years, we felt that we just had to get another one of these puppies out there.”
