Meshuggah serve up quarter-century box set


Meshuggah have revealed details of a limited box set entitled 25 Years Of Musical Deviance.

It spans their entire career in 27 vinyl LPs, a Blu-ray disc containing all their music videos plus previously-unreleased studio clips, and a 100-page hardback book featuring lyrics and unseen photos.

The band plan to release their currently-untitled eighth album in the coming months, ahead of a European tour that ends with eight shows in the British Isles.

Guitarist Marten Hagstrom recently described the follow-up to 2012’s Koloss as “pretty diverse,” adding: “I’m really attracted by taking something that’s so fucking generic that it can’t get more generic. But you do something that makes it a new territory. Not rewrite the whole thing – but just tweak it a little.”

Just 1000 copies of 25 Years Of Musical Deviance will be made available. It’s released on July 29 via Nuclear Blast, with pre-ordering available now.
