Formed in the college town of Umeå in northern Sweden in 1987, Meshuggah have spent the last thirty three 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. The 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’. A true must-have for all die-hard Meshuggah-fans and those who still need to be fully convinced! And the first time it has been made available on vinyl.
