At long last! Everyone’s favorite Swedish tech-metalers, Meshuggah have offered up a sneak peak at the first video from their critically-acclaimed new record obZen. Fittingly, the Killswitch Productions -helmed clip gets a cinematic trailer, and Mike Pecci and Ian McFarland’s eerie horror flick aesthetic creeps through the 30 second teaser. The video stills are exceedingly creepy in a sort of Francis Bacon vs. The Cell sense. Who’s pumped? Keep an eye out for the official worldwide debut of the entire music video very very soon. And in the meantime, check out the trailer here.
Meshuggah are currently on the last few dates of their North American tour with Ministry. Photos of the band’s April 27, 2008 concert at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival at the Palladium in Worcester, MA have hit the net and are appropriately-intense. During the tour drummer Thomas Hakke has been keeping busy, discussing the new record with the press. You can catch video interviews with Hakke at Metal Injection, Boston.tv, Metal Machine, and Sick Drummer.
