Swedish metal legends Meshuggah have released the first album trailer for their highly anticipated new album The Violent Sleep of Reason, due out on, October 7th from Nuclear Blast Records. You can Watch the video at this link or below:

Drummer Tomas Haake commented on the concept of the title, the theme of the album and the artwork: “Basically, the whole idea of why we chose the title is it kinda connects with the lyrical content of the album. Which is to a fair degree about current events and what you see is going on as far as terrorism today, extremist views on ideals, and religious dogma and the violent implications that you get from being asleep so to speak and not acting/reacting to what is going on in the proper way”

The album was produced by the band and was engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark. The Artwork was created by Keerych Luminokaya who created the artwork for Koloss and The Ophidian Trek as well as the new images for each of the 7 albums and 3 EP’s featured in the 25 Years of Musical Deviance box set.
