Meshuggah drops new single “Light The Shortening Fuse” from upcoming “Immutable” album


MESHUGGAH has just unveiled the new single “Light The Shortening Fuse,” from their impending new album, Immutable, out on April 1st via Atomic Fire. Check out our full album review HERE.

The new single follows the recently released, stunning music video for “The Abysmal Eye.” Think epic landscapes, paired with post-apocalyptic blockbuster movie-style vibes. It is a whole new level of music video, paired with cinematic art – simply a masterpiece! You can watch and share the video HERE.

This band blow minds for a living, outdoing themselves with every new release. Immutable is their most explosive work of monstrous art yet. Destined to be one of 2022’s most hailed and talked-about releases, Immutable once again showcases MESHUGGAH’s collective brilliance, including some of the most jaw-dropping ensemble performances they have ever executed: In particular, drummer Tomas Haake has somehow outstripped his own incredible past achievements, and guitarist Mårten Hagström makes a point of singing his long-time comrade’s praises, “Tomas has always been a monster behind the drum kit, but I think we managed to capture more of his drumming style this time around. Like I’ve said, Tomas has always sounded great, but this is stepping it up a notch.”

Fans should prepare themselves for the unexpected. The release of the Swedish icons’ ninth and most fearlessly creative studio album is full of surprises and instantly recognizable as the work of metal’s most idiosyncratic force. Immutable redefines and redesigns the MESHUGGAH sound across more than an hour of the most stimulating and absorbing music the band has ever made. Despite the challenges of the last couple of years, the progressive principles that have always informed their artistic efforts remain as cherished as ever. As we spiral towards a dystopian future, MESHUGGAH still stands alone.

Describing MESHUGGAH’s music has always been a tricky business, and Immutable is no different. Brimming with multiple fresh elements and previously unexplored dynamics, yet still utterly crushing, it represents another great leap forward for these tireless artisans.

Immutable will be released on CD, exclusive vinyl variants, cassette, and digitally. Presave or preorder the record and find additional merchandise at:
