NZ Fans get Meshuggah

Some of our comrades from across the Tasman will be happy to hear that Meshuggah are playing in Auckland on the 10th of October. Of course this probably sucks for all the cool people on the South Island, but it’s better than nothing I suppose. Blabbermouth has all the details!

According to Blabbermouth, Meshuggah have finished recording their new CD, and it will be called obZen.  According to drummer Tomas Haake: “We’ve finished the recording a couple weeks back! It sounds really good and we’re super-excited about the new stuff!” I guess it would be a bit strange if he wasn’t super excited.  Hopefully Meshuggah will join Tool on the road again one day, preferably Down Under.
