Meshuggah announce Soundwave sideshows

Meshuggah’s dense, polyrhythmic roar elevates tech-metal artisanship to such insane heights; they often build new ceilings just to smash through them.

It is impossible to talk about experimental or avant-garde metal without mentioning this truly groundbreaking act. "ObZen" is their newest offering and one thing is for sure, expect the unexpected. Meshuggah have once again delivered a masterpiece of diversity and surprises and they have reached a non-human level with this one. The result challenges brain and body, but it also dares any other metal band to write a more ferocious album.

However it’s the live arena where Meshuggah has amassed their army of rabid followers; “Meshuggah put on a mind-bending set of crushing, instrumental virtuosity to kick everything off. The Swedish quintet maintained an assault of raw, rhythmic fire” – Artist Direct

Born and bred among the Buffalo, NY hardcore scene It Dies Today released their sophomore album in 2006, ‘Siren’, an album that audaciously makes an obvious effort to defy all expectations of minor disappointment that typically follows a satisfying debut. “Put simply, if you like screams, melodies, crunchy as fuck guitars and a smattering of beat downs, then you need this.” – Metal Hammer

Lividity is the brand new album for It Dies Today so what can we expect… sincerity, passion, and FUCKING POWER! The album’s blistering, bombastic approach is apparent from the word go, it’s sole intention to rupture the fissure before the soothing suture stitches you back up. “Lividity is one of the best albums of 2009, hands down.” – Killertours

Whitechapel stands out in today’s overcrowded metal scene due in part to their ability to create incredibly evil and dissonant sounds. Seamlessly melding death metal, grind, and hardcore to create a brilliant brand of modern death metal, their debut album, ‘The Somatic Defilement’ systematically crushed those who opened their ears to it and propelled Whitechapel onto the worldwide metal scene. “The band’s dual vocal attack brand of death grind will pummel you senseless, devastating any notion you had of innocence.” – Mouth Of

The crushing triple bill of Meshuggah, It Dies Today and Whitechapel will be performing 2 club shows only!
