Meshuggah Reveal New Album Details, Release Teaser Video


(Metal Hammer) Meshuggah have revealed the title, tracklist and artwork for their upcoming eighth album. The Swedish extreme metal heroes will release The Violent Sleep Of Reason on October 7 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Meshuggah say the follow-up to 2012's Koloss is "inspired by a Goya painting called The Sleep Of Reason Produces Monsters."

The Violent Sleep Of Reason was produced by the band and engineered by Tue Madsen at Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark. Keerych Luminokaya produced the cover art, having worked with the band on previous releases Koloss and The Ophidian Trek.

The album can be pre-ordered now on coloured vinyl and a limited edition box set, as well as in a limited digipak CD, vinyl and special vinyl picture disc. A digital version can be pre-ordered via iTunes.

A 'reveal video' for The Violent Sleep Of Reason has also been released and can be viewed here.
