Formed in the college town of Umeå in northern Sweden in 1987,
MESHUGGAH have spent the last twenty seven years and cumulative fourteen
releases developing, exploring, and redefining their complex,
inimitable approach on the art of expressing the music they hear in
their heads. A group that has not sounded like anyone else in over two
decades, MESHUGGAH are one of the few purely and honestly
lateral-thinking forces, genuinely dedicated to pushing the boundaries
of extreme music, simply because doing so comes naturally to them.
over a quarter of a century as one of the spearheads of their genre,
MESHUGGAH are now treating their fans to the release of a new DVD
entitled »The Ophidian Trek«. This audio-visual encounter contains a
full MESHUGGAH live show, recorded on May 03, 2013 at their co-headline
show alongside DEVIN TOWNSEND at Brixton Academy, London.
thirteen tracks on »The Ophidian Trek« represent a great retrospective
of MESHUGGAH’s fulminant carrier.Kicking off the show with ‘Swarm’, just
one of many from their most recent album »Koloss« (2012), going back to
»ObZen« (2008) with songs like ‘Lethargica’ and ‘Bleed’ and all the way
to the very early days of »Chaosphere« (1998) with the track ‘New
Millenium Cynadie Christ’.
