Meshuggah has released the first single from their highly anticipated new album. ‘Born In Disssonance’ comes off of the The Violent Sleep of Reason, due form Nuclear Blast on October 7th. You can hear the new song at this link or below:

 

In an interview about the track with Rolling Stone, drummer Tomas Haake remarked:

“It ties in with the Biblical Apocalypse, the idea of a deity coming back to undo it all and taking to heaven the ones who are righteous.It’s about a monster that’s coming for us, or maybe an asteroid hurtling towards the earth. It’s always been a weird conundrum for me how some people, even devout people, fear the Apocalypse whilst others welcome it. I’ve never understood that.”
