The monitor is taken from the band’s ninth studio album, “Immutable”, which was launched in May perhaps by way of Atomic Hearth. The follow-up to 2016’s “The Violent Rest Of Cause” was recorded at Sweetspot Studios in Halmstad, Sweden blended by Rickard Bengtsson and Staffan Karlsson and mastered by various Grammy Award winner Vlado Meller (METALLICA, RAGE Against THE Machine, Red Very hot CHILI PEPPERS, Method OF A DOWN).

MESHUGGAH guitarist Mårten Hagström reviewed “Immutable” in the course of an visual appearance on Device HEAD frontman Robb Flynn‘s “No Fuckin’ Regrets With Robb Flynn” podcast. He stated (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.Net): “It’s a double album, if this was a vinyl. It can be 13 tracks 66 or 67 minutes of audio. It is the longest album we’ve set out so far, to this date. And it is really a bit funny, ’cause when we began creating, I was truly adamant that, ‘Let’s attempt to make a ‘Reign In Blood’ album’ — like the MESHUGGAH ‘Reign In Blood’ album just short but sweet. Not perhaps 27 minutes, but retain it just above half an hour. ‘Cause albums aren’t what they utilized to be anyways it truly is singles. So, certainly, we went the opposite course and made a double album and just built it as an album and considered of it as, like again in the working day, really crucial with the track listing and all that shit.
“For us, it was, like we often do, making an attempt to discover the… What is actually the MESHUGGAH sound? How do we keep it but make it fascinating to us?” he continued. “‘Cause that is been our modus operandi all together: if we make sure you ourselves, we make sure you our followers. That is how it truly is been. So which is what we need to get care of.
“We begun writing it when we came off that COVID truncated touring cycle, and then, following that, it was just all programs go. We’ve been functioning our asses off for practically a few years now. And we are genuinely satisfied with the consequence. We may have tried using out a number of items that we haven’t finished ahead of — not nearly anything mindblowing. But from the reactions we’ve been getting so far, I think it really is very a great deal what we hoped for. ‘Cause individuals are stating that it is really an unanticipated album. And that might from time to time be a poor point, but in our minds, it can never be. And no person claimed that it was stunning in a poor way only beneficial so far. So we’ll see.
“You know what it truly is like. When you get the job done on an album, you definitely never know. When you’re carried out with it, everything’s so jumbled up in your head, you never know how to really feel about it. It’s just, like, ‘Okay. Good plenty of. Let it go.’
“But we’re actually fired up about it,” Mårten added. “It is really a ton of songs. It’s by considerably the most dynamic we’ve been on an album. And that is a thing we have been heading for. And I appear forward to see how it will come across.”
Hagström previously said about the “Immutable” title: “The title matches beautifully for the place we are as a band. We’re older now. Most of us are in our fifties now, and we have settled into who we are. Even although we’ve been experimenting all along, I also imagine we have been the identical given that working day 1. The way we technique issues and why we even now make new albums, and why we nevertheless seem the way we do, it truly is immutable. Humanity is immutable, far too. We dedicate the exact same blunders over and in excess of. And we are immutable. We do what we do, and we will not change.”
