MESHUGGAH – Remastered 25th Anniversary Edition “Chaosphere” Out Now!

Remastered Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Edition Of Chaosphere Full-Length Out TODAY!
– North American Tour Draws Near –

Today, Swedish metal behemoths Meshuggah have officially unleashed the remastered, twenty-fifth anniversary edition of their monumental “Chaosphere” full-length via Atomic Fire!

Originally released on November 9th, 1998, “Chaosphere” stands among Meshuggah‘s earliest milestones. Wholly engrossing, both musically and conceptually, the record was recently listed among Spin Magazine’s 15 Best Swedish Metal Records, with the prestigious outlet writing, “With Chaosphere, Meshuggah shed off thrash and embraced jackhammer rhythms sent on a singular mission to disorient. It’s hard to tell if Fredrik Thordendal’s nonlinear soloing is the ground for guitarist Mårten Hagström and drummer Tomas Haake to really lay it in, or if the rhythm allows Thordendal to abuse the fretboard as he pleases. Either way, it’s evident they are locked the fuck in. ‘Concatenation’ and ‘The Mouth Licking What You’ve Bled’ hone in on annihilation and warping patience, yet they’re still super catchy. Not a term you’d associate with a band whose every review mentions polyrhythms. Jens Kidman’s acidic voice is likely what brings in the bro factor, yet he’s way, way harsher — DuPont has likely tried to capture his essence into chemicals for years now. Djent bands would build off Chaosphere’s sound, though none of them have Meshuggah‘s soul.”

The anniversary edition of “Chaosphere” has been sonically updated by Thomas Eberger and Sofia von Hage at Stockholm Mastering and is available now on all major streaming platforms and jewel case CD format with an eight-page booklet, as well as vinyl in new, limited-color variants, each a collector’s gem.
