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. 

The music video that premiered on Meshuggah’s YouTube channel may just be their most powerful, perceptive, and dazzling video to date!

Meshuggah’s new video gives us a glimpse of a mythic and emotionally charged journey in a brutal uninhabitable desert wasteland in an arthouse blockbuster, starring malevolent forces and brutal powers. Exciting experimental elements, otherworldly scenes, bodies flying through the air, humanoids turning into dust,… Meshuggah leads the viewer deep into the world of “The Abysmal Eye” which takes viewers on a dazzling adventure catching a glimpse of the surreal realm of Meshuggah’s latest song. The video was produced by Digital Thunderdome / IRWIN and directed by Scott Hansen.

Legendary. Unique. Immutable.

Six years on from the band’s most recent full-length, “The Violent Sleep Of Reason”, 2022 brings a fresh and fearsome revelation from Meshuggah. Shattering even the highest of expectations, the band’s ninth album is simply their wildest and most esoteric sonic adventure yet. Recorded at Sweetspot Studios in Halmstad (Sweden), mixed by Rickard Bengtsson and Staffan Karlsson and mastered by multiple Grammy award winner Vlado Meller (Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, System Of A Down). Visionary artist Luminokaya once again created the stunning cover artwork.
