A unique band that’s often copied but never equalled, Meshuggah has left an undeniable mark on the metal scene thanks to their trademark rhythms (which are as crazy as they are unexpected, and wrapped up in low-pitch, distorted sounds). Their work has led to a whole new genre that was eventually given its own name: djent. 35 years after its creation, the band continues to shake up conventions while offering a sound that’s uniquely their own. Fans have seen them switch from seven, to eight, to nine strings, and return to live recording with their album The Violent Sleep of Reason, but now the Swedish band are taking a more serious approach to metal… and it’s somehow made their music more accessible, all things considered.

Immutable sounds serious in every sense of the word. Despite a lot of editing over a lot of sessions, the band has never sounded so organic. Their mechanical (though not clinical) undertones are even more imposing, sometimes sounding similar to their album Koloss, released in 2012. Die-hard fans will be pleased to hear that Meshuggah still plays the convoluted and impeccably placed riffs they’re known for (God He Sees in Mirrors, The Abysmal Eye), but this is still one of their most melodic records to date, no matter how distorted the guitars are. You can hear a faint suggestion of the editing work on the intense opening track Broken Cog and the incredible 9-minute long instrumental They Move Below. This is a release that, while still maintaining their signature djent sound, definitely pushes this Swedish band into the realms of prog rock.

A true masterpiece, Immutable is a steamroller of an album with an unusual sense of depth, ready to crush anything in its path. It’s a sucker punch with finesse. More than 25 years after their incredible album Destroy Erase Improve, Meshuggah have proved they’re still the undisputed leaders of the genre they created. No one’s ever come close to following in their footsteps, and now everyone knows who’s boss. © Chief Brody/Qobuz
