Meshuggah-The Violent Sleep of Reason

Meshuggah is back with its 8th album, “The violent sleep of reason”, released last October via Nuclear Blast.
Countercurrent the choice to record the album live in the studio, simultaneously with all members, I have to say it works perfectly.
The opener track “Clockworks” is one of the most violent in the album, with its 7:15 minutes takes the listener through a devastating and powerful journey.
“MonstroCity” has a devastating riff , the central part is very interesting with that injection of melody. The best guitar solo is absolutely in “Ivory Tower”.
The album’s lyrical themes are mostly on terrorism, extremist views on ideals and religious dogma.
On the threshold of the 30-year of career the band, even keeping the same line, has produced an impeccable album which can be easily appreciated by the extreme metal lovers.
