The eighth album ‘The Violent Sleep Of Reason‘ of the Swedish extreme tech-metal pioneers Meshuggah will be released on October 7th via Nuclear Blast. The first single ‘Born In Dissonance’ is already available as is a trailer in which the title and the cover artwork are discussed.

Tomas Haake has said about the album: “Basically, the whole idea of why we chose the title is it kinda connects with the lyrical content of the album. Which is to a fair degree about current events and what you see is going on as far as terrorism today, extremist views on ideals, and religious dogma and the violent implications that you get from being asleep so to speak and not acting/reacting to what is going on in the proper way”.
