Meshuggah guitarist comments on new album

Meshuggah guitarist, Fredrik Thorendal has lifted the lid on what fans can expect from the band’s upcoming seventh studio album when he recently chatted with Guitar World Magazine.

Speaking to Guitar World as part of their May 2011 edition, Thorendal discussed the development of new material, affirming that by working together as a collective, fans can anticipate a better sounding record.

"We are working on a new album and have been for a long time. I’m so excited about this one. We’ve always tried to change how we write songs to keep it exciting, but on recent albums we’ve also been moving further away from working together as a band.

On this album though everyone is working together. Every day that we’re in the studio we’ll play whatever song we’re working on, record a demo version of it to analyze (sic) at home, and then come back the next day, talk about it and try to make it better.

I think because of this it’s going to be our best album yet. We don’t have a title yet, but when it comes to new gear, this one is going to be special…" Thorendal told the music publication.
