There has been a lot of speculation going on about when extreme metal band, Meshuggah releasing a new album, and FINALLY, the news is officially out!
The upcoming issue for Revolver Magazine apparently has a full-page ad of the djent metalheads for their latest album, wait for it — THE VIOLENT SLEEP OF REASON. If that’s not awesome enough, there’s also a date for release: simply saying – OUT 10/7/2016. Now since we know that 10th July is dead and done, the date is not mentioned in the European way, that is, dd/mm/yyyy.
The cover of their album looks like some sort of Native Indian guy getting zombified. The picture taken by Metal Injection is a little blurry, but that doesn’t matter, because we got what we needed – album title and release date. Hell, yeah! \m/
