Are you guys sure that there´ll be a new album comming on spring 2007?
I´m not saying that it´s impossible but they just re-recorded nothing (Better than the other nothing ;) )
Aren´t they tiered?
I´de love to have a new album from them soon, all of them are so welcomed in my ears ;)
I don't have the link to hand so I will post back later or tomorrow, of an audio interview with Marten Hagstrom of Meshuggah saying that they're hoping to have the new album out late spring. FYI they didn't "re-record" Nothing, they re-recorded the guitars. Well, actually, Fredrik re-recorded the guitars and triggered drum sounds from Drumkit from Hell for the snare, toms and kick. The drums in re-Nothing sound a lot more flat and cold (a la Catch 33, where they sound awesome cos it fits with the music) but because we know what they're capable of from the original Nothing the drums sound arse on re-Nothing. The guitars, however, sound top on re-Nothing, definitely a massive improvement.
Plus they've been in "writing mode" for some time now and I assume it will continue that way right through to their recording. I am anxious for new material. I have heard rumours that they are playing Download in the UK next year. Chris Adler from Lamb of God told me LOG were playing and someone else told me Mastodon and Meshuggah are rumoured too. I will be going for the weekend if that's the case!!
If anyone knows where I can get Psykisk Testbild, Contradictions Collapse on vinyl and the American version of SelfCaged and the promo of Destroy Erase Improve please PM me - these are all I need to finish my collection. I think.
